All *syns start with:
My first encounter with electronic music
was in 2002, when I sneaked into my brothers room to listen to that crazy music I'd heard earlier at full blast from beneath.
Conveniently left in the CD-player tray was the album 'Music for the Jilted Generation' by The Prodigy, that had been released eight years earlier in 1994 - when I was just sweet four years of age.
This Album - it took me a while to grasp what my ears were capturing here - left a serious impression on my mind, and has a long lasting influence that now takes hold in my preference for the lavish, the improvised, the sometimes over-the-top 'epic' and eclectic sounds.
The fact that it was completely beyond my imagination and understanding of technology, how they had accomplished these outer-worldly sounds, fueled my interest in electronic music and set the starting point of a long journey of exploration with no end in sight.
Being of a creative nature, I soon wanted to make my own music and completely change the tracks I heard - and modify them - instead of "only" listening.
Shortly after getting hold of my first computer in 2006 I started toying around with software-sequencers (Juicy Fruit 4!)- free plugins and effects - and even though I couldn't tell what the parameter-names would stand for, I used my ears to determine if I liked a certain change or not. Only much later I learned that this is actually the only 'golden' rule to go by, while making music. Easy!
The more I got to know about the technology and science behind music, the more I became fascinated and the more my respect grew for the pioneers, the engineers and artists of the different genres and styles.
I started to dig everything deep, dark, groovy, spacey and singular, regardless of the genre, always in pursuit of the most interesting and innovative sound.
Finding and processing good bits in every style of music and putting them together to form my own canvas of sound.
Inspired by Plastikman, Herbert, Efdemin, Speedy J, Jeff Mills,
Basic Channel, Conforce, Squarepusher, Autechre, Amon Tobin, Mike Dehnert, Tobias, Matthias Fridell, STL, EXOS, Paul St. Hilaire, Lee "Scratch" Perry,
the list could go on and on...
I never lock myself on specific styles, I go where the sound takes me.
'Obos' is the essence. 'Skop' is the scope.
