staplerfaher & sigtryggur berg sigmarsson Brombron 26: Two Lost Souls (CD, £9.50)label: korm plastics
The 26th release in the 'Brombron series' (missing numbers to follow). Originally a co-production between Staalplaat and Extrapool, it is now hosted by co-curator Frans de Waard. In the year 2000 Frans de Waard and Extrapool started the Brombron project. Two or more musicians become artists in residence in Extrapool, an arts initiative in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, with a fully equipped sound recording studio. These artists can work in a certain amount of time on a collaborative project; a project they always wished to do, but didn't have the time or the equipment to realize. Here we have Sigmarson, who is since long part of Icelandic Stillupsteypa and a regular collaborator with BJ Nilsen on some of the more dark ambient records of a refined nature. He teams up with Steffan de Turck, better known as Staplerfahrer. He was a member of 4DaLadiez and has been creating weird and wonderful lo-fi electronic music on his nearly broken equipment since fifteen years. The two took advantage of the material in the studio - synths, organ, effects - to create music that is dark, mysterious, ambient, drone based, scary and even a bit rhythmic from time to time. Hardly lost at all, we'd think.
