RCD 2054 - Phonophani: Phonophani (CD)
Originally released in 1998 as a limited edition (500 only) on Biosphere´s Biophon label. A breath of fresh air at the time, this excellent debut from Phonophani still stands as one of the very best electronica albums ever released in Norway. Well crafted and full of ideas and original turns, it has a rare timeless quality that makes it sound as fresh today as it did back then. It´s difficult to come up with comparisons, but certain aspects of early Alog (naturally) and Boards Of Canada can serve as references. This issue includes three bonus tracks (20 minutes) from the same period.
