    psstt ….. Mattias, I think you will have to contact Kaia directly if you want her to respond (perhaps you have done so already?)

      Will do, just wanted to see I my idea would spark enough interest for people to check the blog by them self.

      Hate is maybe a bit to strong,
      I have a problem with an excessive use of colour, especially in my own work.

      but yes i am very familiar with Marius work.

    and RYOJI IKEDA. musican fra J-PAN

    • a1029 Says:

      I am very familiar with Ryoji Ikeda, I especially like his way of titling his tracks, like the matrix album ( the album title is cheesy dough) where he uses binary code:
      0000000100 and so on….

      and the +/- album where he only uses + – . and : to title the tracks.

      And another musician from J-Pan is of course Ryuichi Sakamoto who´s done one of my favorite albums together with Alva Noto: utp_ .

      Big thanks for all the comments Anders.

    Sakamoto has also done a nice collaboration with christiaan fennesz (he played at verftet this autumn, only Fennesz)
    hehe.. Ikeada is ultraminimal anti/post humanisch. other that working but more over in dark romantisism/black metal is the Sci-Fi lost in space ambient black metal band from Swiss that call themself for DARKSPACE, the CDs is even black under where it suposed to be zilver. you might check them out if you like Sci-Fi like 2001 a space…, Solaris, Alien, Event Horizon bla bla bla… (the realy lost in space one.) By the way i have a interview with Carl Michael von Hausswolf that also is on the super label raster-noton.

    • a1029 Says:

      I don’t really like fennesz, not sure why, he just doesen´t do it for me
      but DARKSPACE i will check out, and woulden´t mind having a look at the CM von haussewolf interview.
      And please don´t get me started on the lost in space SF thing…… I have to much to do and is easily distracted by that kind of temptation : )

    I like them already!!!!

    Have you heard the German band Squaremeter, dark ambient with some arabic/asian influences ????

    and have you seen the movie Sunshine (dang I couldn´t stay away from the SF ……….. )

  7. anderselsrudhultgreen Says:

    cool that you like them.
    No have not heard about them, i will check them out. sounds interesting.

    Yes, argh. Sunshine is one of my favorite films. I like also 28 days later. it is something in danny boyls sci fi films, something with the atmosphere, and the music, John Murphy. i have used music from 28 days later as refference in a video i made. i can show you.
