I was searching for something in the basement, when I suddenly fell into a trap door, and for a minute I heard this special music.

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)?


04January2006 New year's resolutions

So what is coming up this winter from the alog camp?

Two vinyl releases will bring alog back to their vinyl roots. First up is a long lost EP called "Islands of Memory" that was recorded the summer of 1999 in Malmø, Sweden. It was scheduled for release around the time of our "Duck-Rabbit" CD for Rune Grammofon. But due to unknown problems at the vinyl plant it never saw the light of day, and was lost boiling in the vinyl cauldron somewhere in Switzerland. This autumn we suddenly got a mail from Swiss record label Creaked that the original master had been found by chance in a messy office in Lausanne, hidden under stacks of papers and cds. They where shocked to hear that it hadn´t been released yet! So finally it is now ready after so many years of maturing (...or the world is possibly ready for it). It is covered in beautiful design from Big Magnus at Grandpeople (also responisble for the Catch that Totem design). Releasedate: february

Next up is the release on EN/OF label of our "Just Recording" album, which features all new tracks (except a few tracks previewed on the Totem compliation). Visual artist Anri Sala from Albania will do the cover artwork. Releasedate: tba

A few concerts will coincide with these releases. Confirmed is Malaga, Spain on the 17. february.

Phonophani will participate on a tour of Norway called "Generator X" together with other musicians and video artists in april. Around that time the self-titled debut album of Phonophani, released in 1998 on biophon records and long since deleted, will be rereleased on rune grammofon with extra material from this period. More information to come...

Rumors about the making of a follow-up album to last years Miniatures has also been heard around here lately, but is yet to be confirmed...

24November2005 Catch it

We are happy to announce that our new cd just arrived! It´s called "Catch that totem! (1998-2005)" and feature a selection of songs from our archive of unreleased and hard-to-find material. It was collected in co-operation with the record label Melektronikk (known for their Safe-as-Milk festival). Here´s what they have to say:

"Over a cup of coffee and a slice of cake we decided together with Alog to make a compilation album with the broadest possible scope: An album featuring unreleased tracks from before their first release, unavailable tracks from EPs, a couple of remixes and brand new tracks that has never been released. Alog carefully selected their favourites from the extensive Alog archive and sent it to us. We listened gleefully to everything we received. After long discussions and great uncertainty we are proud to present these thirteen tracks as our common favourites: The best of Alog's unreleased and hard to find material according to themselves and two of their biggest fans."

The artwork was made by our local (Bergen) heroes Grandpeople and is a deluxe 12 page booklet with liner notes from us and some explosive design (for some reason the words "Evil", "Chewing gum", "Japanese manga", "Black Metal" and "Summer" was mentioned during our discussions with the designers).

1The cd will be in stores on the 28. november. It can be ordered online now from our alogshop if you have a paypal account. If you do not have a paypal account it can also be ordered from dotshop.se
