Entangled released on Avian received reviews with the words “This is powerful and sublime”, “Experimental music at its most forceful and refined” and “It’s an immersive piece of music from one of contemporary electronic music’s most adventurous producers.”
“Beneath the album’s harsh noise and unrelenting tension is a refined and carefully considered approach. “Trispider” is Ryberg at her most terrifying and unhinged. But the subdued, gorgeous ambience of tracks like “The Presence_Eurydike” shows an ability to use silence and empty space just as effectively as noise and claustrophobia. One of the impressive things about AFTRYK, her first solo release, was the way Ryberg sustained tension, never letting it break or subside. A keen sense of pacing and progression allows her to do this. Here she applies this same skill to ambient works and more melodic tracks like “Magnetic Force,” introducing restraint and sensitivity without compromising on drama.”
Latest release in May 2020 on AD 93 (former Whities) “…Her every release is outstanding in quality. Each builds on, and often subverts, what came before. Whities 030 does nothing to buck the trend, and reaffirms Ryberg as one of the best producers about. This is another worthy addition to her tremendous catalogue.”
“….It’s really easy to throw around descriptors and themes like spatiality, intensity and physicality when it comes to electronic music, but few embody those things and take them to their extremes like SØS Gunver Ryberg…..”
