MIC's Listen to Norway series continues with 'Deathprod'.
This massive four-volume CD box compiles Deathprod’s (aka Helge Sten of Motorpsycho and Supersilent fame) most central works: reference frequencies (selected works 1991-2001), treetop drive (works from ’93-’94), imaginary sons from Tristan da cunha (1996) and morals and dogma (works 1994-2000). The box documents the sound artist (and self-described “audio virus”) development from the early ‘90s lo-fi cassette tape experiments to later years minimalist excursions in open sonic fields. ‘Deathprod’ represents a potent distillation of Sten’s music, simultaneously concentrated and diffuse, mining seams of potentiality in mood and slow movement, at once finely detailed and vast, microscopic and boundless, breaking open temporal cells to access zones of timelessness. Boxed together these four CDs are an invitation to listen, to see, to feel and grow.
