Mordançage CD's has arrived

After being lost in the mail and having been sent back and forth between UK and Sweden a few times, my artist copies of the Mordançage debut finally found its way to my new home. They are now available to order from mine and Andrew’s own Bandcamp pages respectively (choose who you order from depending if you live in the EU or North America to keep shipping costs down!).

The packages looks great, big thanks to Daniel Crossley of Fluid Audio for doing a great job designing them!

Introducing: Mordançage

Mordançage is a photographic process based on chemical alteration of the gelatin in a print. The mordançage solution can cause varying degrees of degradation and other tonal changes, pulling completely new patterns and images out of a single source. It creates a living, breathing photograph that continually oxidizes and warps over time as it is exposed to new environments.

The same name and principles inform the new collaboration I have going with Andrew Tasselmyer of Hotel Neon.

This started in 2017, solely through long distance correspondence - sharing ideas and processing each others drafts and sketches back and forth until something else slowly began to appear, almost leading the project forward on its own.

Our self-titled debut album, which was carefully mastered by our good friend Ian Hawgood, will be released on September 30th via Fluid Audio.

Artist Selection - 2017 in review

A little late, but still - Home Normal asked some of their artists to mention five releases they've been enjoying in 2017. Head here to check out my list. 

From the Home Normal site:
"Tobias Hellkvist had a remarkably busy 2017. He started the year with the Home Normal releases of 'Vesterhavet (Extended)' and 'Kaskelot: Reissue and Remixes'. These were immediately followed by the 3" mini-CD release of '24th Impulse' on ÈTER, his collaboration 'Skimmer' with Ben Fleury-Steiner, and 'Forest Psalms' on Dragon's Eye, all released by April. Tobias was then EMMY nominated for his sound design work for Lego, eventually winning at The Music+Sound Awards."
