Symbols

Symbols flyer

This album was made using glitches and loops mostly derived from recently unearthed recordings made in the early nineties. Old dusty tapes, disintegrating in the basemet for ages meet field recordings, samples from 78 rpm gramophone records with the odd drone and some instrumentation sprinkled on top. A quite bleak affair, where sludgy sounds hiss and squeek their way through the swamp, dragging along broken bones and ghosts found in the mud.
The CD-R version is limited to 40 copies, and comes with a xeroxed zine featuring a visualization of the symbols.
The download includes full quality front and back artwork and a PDF-version of the zine.

Check out the album HERE.

My new album “Tapestry of Forgotten Ideas” is out today on Tape Drift Records. Here’s what the label says:

“Tape Drift has been a huge fan of Brandal’s music for at almost a decade now, and his second outing for the label is a stunning contribution to his body of work.  The cold darkness of Norway informs his music, but it his ability to conjure worlds completely unknown that really makes Andreas stand out.  Tapestry of Forgotten Ideas (TOFI) showcases a collection of tracks that are heavy and noisy yet complex and bursting with complex sonic details.  His releases consistently offer aural surprises while never letting the quality meter show any signs of flagging.  It’s a remarkable feat given the size and scope of his discography.  Don’t skip this one.”

Many thanks to Joshua Stefane for allowing me to use his excellent photo for the album cover!
