The Short Night

Benny Jonas Nilsen

The Short Night has been performed in Montréal…

Using location recordings, weather, birdsong and radio, BJNilsen continues to map and explore uncharted territory. A follower to 2005’s Fade to White, BJNilsen develops his work further, based on field recordings and electronics. This time he adds harsher yet clearer harmonies with musical elements to the compositions, creating a beautifully complex and detailed study. Recorded in 2006-2007 with mostly analogue equipment, using up to 50 year-old tapemachines, filters and generators that end up being the soft cushion in these cold location recordings. Location recordings from Mälaren, Stockholm, Sweden; Coombe Gibbet, Berkshire, England and Landakot, Vatnsleysuströnd, Iceland.
