 As a staunch believer in non-existent superstitions I feel that the ukulele is a very dangerous, sensual instrument that could lead to the ruination of our young people and rend the very fabric of society. That said, I can now play Stand By Me on the Populele, a feat that was rendered possible by the melding of LEDs, Bluetooth, and a clever app. The Populele by Popuband is a $159 Ukelele with… Read More

Fever Ray Just Dropped A Surprise New Track And Video!

Watch it below!
Something Exciting are about to happen!

 

Fever Ray is the debut solo studio album by Fever Ray, an alias of Karin Dreijer Andersson of Swedish electronic music duo The Knife. It was released on 12 January 2009 by Rabid Records. The album spawned four singles—”If I Had a Heart“, “When I Grow Up“, “Triangle Walks” and “Seven“.

 

Karin Elisabeth Dreijer Andersson (born 7 April 1975) is a Swedish singer, songwriter and record producer. She is one half of the electronic music duo The Knife, formed with her brother Olof Dreijer. Andersson was previously the vocalist and guitarist of the alternative rock band Honey Is Cool. Andersson released her debut solo album under the alias Fever Ray in January 2009.

Her vocal style is notable for both shrill and deep tones, and also the use of multitracked vocals, with different uses of pitch-shifting technology on each track, creating an intricate and mysterious effect. Visually, Andersson employs the use of masks, face and body paint, intricate costumes, and other theatrical elements in photo shoots, videos and live performances, during which she often performs behind a gauze screen that partially obscures her from view.

The Guardian named Fever Ray the second best album of 2009, calling it “[g]lacial, creepy and impish” and commenting, “Between the cavernous synths, the echoes and loops, the polyrhythms and snarling vocal processing, Andersson managed to capture the feeling of being totally alone while also projecting a childlike wonder.”[18] It was ranked the second best album of 2009 and twenty-fourth best album of the 2000s decade by Resident Advisor.[19][20] The Sunday Times named Fever Ray the third best album of 2009 by a new artist and wrote that Andersson “responded to motherhood with an album of glacial sonic architecture, its unforgiving expanses conjuring up sleep-deprived mental churning”, dubbing it an “electro classic”.[21] NME, Drowned in Sound and Pitchfork all placed the album at number nine on their respective lists of the Top 50 Albums of 2009, with the latter noting that “[w]hat’s made Andersson’s work even better is how her videos and performances amplify the music’s sense of dread and mystery.”

The album was listed at number sixteen on PopMatters’ The Best 60 Albums of 2009, and the website opined, “Alternately chilly and warm, wistful and foreboding, expansive and claustrophobic, Fever Rays peculiarity and bleak magnificence holds us in its thrall.”[25] Online music service Rhapsody included Fever Ray at number twenty-two on its list of The 25 Best Albums of 2009.[26] Slant Magazine named it the twenty-fourth best album of 2009, stating that Andersson “challenges the conventions of dance music with her distorted vocals and macabre imagery” the album “emerges as an unsettling, impossible-to-shake record that suggests the aftermath of when ‘pop’ truly bursts”.[27] iTunes US named Fever Ray the best electronic album of 2009 as part of the its Rewind 2009 roundup.[28] It was included on AllMusic‘s Favorite Albums of 2009 and Favorite Electronic Albums of 2009 lists.

In 2010, Fever Ray won the P3 Guld award for Dance Artist of the Year, and was nominated for Newcomer of the Year and Pop Artist of the Year.[31] The same year, she won a Manifestgalan for Best Live Artist and received a Beatport Music Award nomination for Best Electronica Artist

 I don’t know if you’re into baroque music, but I can tell you that Germans sure are. So it’s no surprise that German R&D outfit Fraunhofer has turned its considerable resources towards learning about and conserving every little detail of the instruments for which the likes of Bach and Handel composed their music.

Watch The Amazing Under Water Concert With Danish Between Music: AquaSonic

An underwater concert by Between Music. Five performers submerged in water tanks, playing custom-made instruments and singing – entirely underwater. AquaSonic is made by Between Music, Denmark. International producer and representation: FuturePerfect Productions

TRAILER:


Composer, and Performer: Laila Skovmand Performer: Robert Karlsson Performer: Morten Poulsen Performer: Dea Marie Kjeldsen Performer: Nanna Bech Lighting Designer: Adalsteinn Stefansson Sound Designer: Anders Boll Video: Christoffer Brekne International producer and representation: FuturePerfect Productions Co-producer: Aarhus 2017 – European Capital of Culture Supported by: The Danish Arts Foundation, City of Aarhus, DJBFA, DMF, SNYK.

 

Between Music presents AquaSonic, an underwater concert.
The AquaSonic underwater concert takes the audience on a unique and fascinating voyage into uncharted territory. The work presents five performers who submerge themselves in glass water tanks to play custom-made instruments and sing entirely underwater. Transformed inside these darkly glittering, aquatic chambers, they produce compositions that are both eerily melodic and powerfully resonant.

AquaSonic is the culmination of years of research into the exciting possibilities of submerged musical performance, breaking barriers and challenging existing paradigms. 
Between Music conducted countless experiments in collaboration with deep-sea divers, instrument makers and scientists to develop entirely new, highly specialized subaqueous instruments.
The team also perfected a distinctive vocal technique for underwater singing. The result is a concert experience completely out of the ordinary; a deep dive into a magical new universe of images and sounds.
