Go Field Recording With Bjarki

Hand-picked by Nina Kraviz as a regular on трип and boss for his own innovative bbbbbbb imprint, Icelandic producer Bjarki has solidified our stellar opinion of the vibrant analog-heavy scene on the small north Atlantic Island. 

Waveshaper TV recently caught up with Bjarki on the outskirts of Reykjavik, to capture the process behind his music making. Joining him and a friend sound hunting in Icelandic nature, they follow them back to the famous Sýrland Studio, to see how those field recordings are processed and incorporated into his new “Happy Earthday” LP, forthcoming on !K7 Records.

Waveshaper is the same team behind the hugely successful modular synth documentary I Dream Of Wires — seen widely on Netflix — they have forthcoming electronic music documentaries Electronic Voyager (about Bob Moog) and Subotnick (about Morton Subotnick). Passionate about electronic music, they have made it their mission to document its story, from iconic figures to lesser-known yet compelling outsiders. What unites all subjects is an obsession with the sound of music made with machines.

Keep watch for Bjarki’s ‘Happy Earthday’ released via !K7 Records on 15th February 2019.
