Ultimae records


Circular is the ambient duo Bjarte Andreassen and Jostein Dahl Gjelsvik from Norway.
The debut album appeared in the mid nighties on Origo, the same label as fellow countryman, Biosphere’s early releases. Being among the artists to influence the sound that was to be known as arctic ambient, Circular kept developing and exploring a wider sound palette. References to the stark beauty of the wide open nature is still clear, combined with a warmer involving cinematic trait. Giving another musical nod to Futur Sound Of London.

The following albums in `99 and `04 established and confirmed the duo’s vision: creating a melting pot of sonical textures and music, taking the listener on a journey into undiscovered realms.
