Arne Borgan works with analog modular synths adding a rich pallet of electro-acoustic sounds to his music. Asterion is an on ambient based concept incorporating elements of field recordings and soundscapes. The Norwegian works across numerous of mediums with complex audio installations to accompany his graphic works. Arne Borgan is also half of the Improvising live-electronics duo Cloudbilder, based in Oslo.
The music is intensely built up. The ravel of audio recordings are drowned in a bath of experiment guiding the auditors into a wilderness of sounds. This unusual approach contents deep layers of transcending complexity without becoming gruel. Asterion was constructed from 80 recorded improvised sessions. The result is a very interesting configuration of tracks.
With a brave view on the concept, the electronic artist generated a daring piece of adventurous work in electronic music. These eleven stunning pieces show a variety of mystery, nervousness, melody and distortion mixed into miscellaneous moods. We can’t deny the feeling that Arne Borgan drew a new path with this original and stunning piece of electronic music.
