“I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.”
– Edgar Allan Poe
“Bånsull is an old rare Norwegian word for lullaby.
Folk tales from all around the world has scared small children for centuries, and when i became a father some years ago it was only natural for me to write my own bedtime stories to lull my baby to sleep. For some strange reason these gave her nightmares and she did not sleep for years.
To document this time of our life, i recorded them to a reel to reel tape and hid it in a box in the attic. I then went on to explore other medias, and worked as a sounddesigner, technician and composer for film, TV and contemporary dance performances.
Years went by and i had forgotten all about these recordings, untill one rainy day it knocks on my door and Dronarivm, much like the brothers Grimm, were searching all around europe collecting and publishing unsung melodies from our century. Together we walked up the squeeky stairs and into the dark and dusty attic to search for the lost tapes.
And the rest is history as they say, or in this case, it is about to start…”
