the Norwegian electronic producer (aka Geir Jenssen) composes austere, disturbing & deeply textured ambience - his 12th album sets the hairs on the back of your neck quivering.

It’s almost entirely constructed from hundreds of snippets of Eastern European & Russian folk music recordings, melted together to transform them into 17 unsettling & occasionally blindingly radiant beat less tracks. Each sample fragment is like a sliver of glass plate & like the photos that inspired the music (a recently discovered cache by the photographer Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky, who pioneered a form of colour photography using three sheets of glass), what's left if radiant, ghostly & unforgettable.
