30May2006 A LETTER FROM DR. GUBERMAN


Some news of the existence of the legendary dr. Guberman recently caught our attention. Here is a picture of dr. Guberman by the Superdeep hole in Kola. He has just drilled the first hole of what was to become the deepest man-made hole in the world (12262 meters). Also included is a letter from the doctor with an original Superdeep stamp. As the research director of the Barents Institute, Urban Wråkberg notes: "dr. Guberman is for the underworld, what Juri Gagarin is for space".

21May2006 Phonophani debut re-released

Finally phonophani´s debut album is available again! Originally released on Geir "Biosphere" Jenssens Biophon label in 1998 in 500 copies, it is now re-released on Rune Grammofon. It also contains three bonus tracks made during the same period.

"After buying my first sampler in 1996 the second track I made was called 'I.F.A' (the first was 'No Strangeclock' also on the album). I played it to Geir Jenssen one night in Tromsø, and he surprisingly told me that if I made 9 more he would start a record label and release it. The release became the start of my career in music. This was all in all a special period of my life, which luckily was 100% captured on this disc."
- Espen Sommer Eide

The album is available for order on our shop page.

"Imagine the score to Forbidden Planet with its deliciously subtle creepiness and timelessness, aligned with a beautiful solemnity. How ideal is that?" - Other Music

"I dare you to listen to this and not have to wrap your brain around the fact that Eide was pulling this shit in 1998, because what is most amazing is how acutely this record eerily anticipates many of the prominent trends that would become so popular with electronic music between 2000 and 2002." - Cokemachineglow.com

I ended up listening to the entire post awakening sound album this morning. Seems like it's made out of songs giving you the desire to remain bed. Liked it. But why not do an album that stimulates you to wake up too?!

Great news! So there is probably any strange connection from Phonophani beyond and me, because I have enjoyed that 1998 CD during whole december... after some years..
Espen, is there a girlie sample from Michalkovs's movie Utomlyonnye solntsem (Burnt by the sun)?
