Hi,

 

Sorry if this doesn't fit exactly in the new release forum, but technically this video is highlighting the recording process behind Bjarki's forthcoming "Happy Earthday" LP on !K7 Records (I've heard it, and it's great!)... I know this is going to be of interest to WATMM so hopefully it's OK to stay in this subforum.

 

Besides running Suction Records, I also run a documentary production company called Waveshaper Media, which specializes in electronic music documentaries... We produced the well-known modular synth doc "I Dream Of Wires" - which is currently streaming for free via Boiler Room TV:

https://fourthree.bo...-dream-of-wires

 

In addition to our 2 current feature docs that are now in post-production, "Electronic Voyager" (about Bob Moog), and "Subotnick" (about Morton Subotnick), we've just launched a new YouTube channel/Patreon, called WAVESHAPER TV.

Our first episode was an interview with cEvin Key of Skinny Puppy, and we've just posted Episode 2 today:

 

Bjarki - Waveshaper TV Episode 2:
http://youtu.be/QYRxid1iss0


Bjarki is the musical alias of Icelandic techno/electronic producer Bjarki R Sigurdarson, founder of the bbbbbb label, and best known as one of the key artists on Nina Kraviz’s трип (Trip) label. Bjarki scored a monster techno anthem right out of the gate, with “I Wanna Go Bang” from his debut 12-inch, but has since developed a more diverse and experimental sound. Waveshaper TV caught up with Bjarki on the outskirts of Reykjavik, joining him and a friend as they gathered sounds in Icelandic nature. After the sound hunt, Bjarki brought those field recordings back to the famous Sýrland Studio, to be processed and incorporated into his new album “Happy Earthday,” just announced for release on !K7 Records early next year.

To see the EXTENDED EDIT of this interview (17min), and all past/future WSTV interview features, join Waveshaper TV on Patreon:

cheers,

 

Jason @ Waveshaper TV


ps if someone could tell me how to make that Bjarki YouTube link into a direct embed, I would appreciate it - couldn't figure it out...

BTW the ambient track playing in the video is from the new LP. He sent us an advance digital copy. The other track is Drab 2 from his Geothermal Sheep 12", which is my fav track of his...

Is there any info on the 4LP boxset? The second 2 discs dont list the track names, but I haven't heard anything about it at all.  Wish I knew about it before I got one from bleep.

After giving it a listen (if you ordered from Bleep, the digitals are already available for download) I'm even closer to getting the boxset too.  This album's really nice.

If you are looking for Bjarki bangers, look elsewhere. This is a more nuanced downtempo collection. Like the vibe, but will need some more listens to see what sticks.
