We have just returned from our summer in our home town of Tromsø. Thanks to the great spirit of the people there and nature of the place we made great progress towards the two upcoming alog releases. The first to be released on the safe-as-milk label melektronikk is finished and in the print, and will be out in september if all goes well. It will feature 5 previously released tracks from various odd circumstances and 7 previously unreleased tracks from the alogic archives dating back to the time before duck-rabbit. More info to follow soon! The second all new album on rune grammofon has no definite release date yet.
[UPDATE: The melektronikk-album is posponed until summer 2005, and the rune grammofon album will be released in january 2005]
Espens solo project phonophani is soon to release the follow-up to genetic engineering, out in en end of august on rune grammofon, titled "oak or rock". More about that soon as well!
As for live appearances a couple of them coming up as well: Alog will play live at Blå, Oslo on the 21. august and Landmark, Bergen 22. augut.
Phonophani will first play on the first ever (and maybe last) lokofon in Kirkenes, Norway on the border of russia. More info on ruralreaders. Trying to save the northermost railroadtrack in the world! The date is the 5. september.
Next Phonophani and choreographer Johannes Wieland will air their new collaboration at the Diane von Furstenberg stage in New York 7.-10. October.
