Great Music Art
Fra Rana Blad 1 feb. 19999
Sverre Knut Johansen has delivered a CD for a small market. Recordings of industrial noise and power-noise combined with electronic and acoustic instruments have been for a small market. At least not in Norway. The record company Origo Sound is aimed more towards a international marked. The same thing happened to his previous privately financed CD, but it happened without a big fanfare. This time it's an exciting concept. Sampled sounds (hence the title of the album) as sound effects in individual songs and more prominent on others. Light melodic sequences mixed with strange noise elsewhere. In on case, he must have been strongly influenced by the German group Kraftverk "Trans Europe Express" from the late 70's. To "softer up" some songs, he also hired artists like Debra Adamson on acoustic guitar, Ketil Pedersen on oboe, Børge Petersen-Øverleir on electric guitar, and Bjørn Frode Skogly on piano. Techno-pop-ambient-new age- rock is considered adequate. Recommended for listners who want to expand their horizon.
