BJØRN SVIN (DK)
Track: Melodeaky (2:31)
Bjørn Svin is an electronic musician. On stage he is a captivating sight. With a super concentrated
and energetic connection with his machines he creates improvised live techno without a match! Bjørn
in the studio is a little different. There he concentrates more on getting phrases and rhythms to melt
together in a greater harmonic cosmos, which is typically more melodic than his live acts.
The biggest contradiction to the Svin-project is probably Bjørn's royal ambient project called Prince
Esso, which is typically more melancholic and quiet compositions, with a touch of medieval tenderness.
Much of Prince Esso's music consists of bells, strings and calimba sounds, and other sounds from acoustic
instruments, without really being acoustic as such. Another pseudonym is Cygnet Committee, which is
closer to Bjørn Svin, the difference being that CC is more true to the traditional values of techno like
darkness and hardness. CC is also whacked, but never without also being direct, hard and uncompromisingly
underground! Yet another name is Bjørn Escobar, a name no longer in use, previously used for making
Melodeaky is made especially for this compilation, and is thus previously unreleased. It is a unique
chance to get a peak into an often unnoticed side of Bjørn Svin's musical landscape.
