Early years influenced by wintery atmosphere at icy Langesund shores. Snow blowing all around. Then warm, cozy indoors, fireplace blazing and practicing classical piano. Bagpipes when a wee lad in Stornoway. Guitar @12 in Stavanger. Fiddle @14 in Drammen. Bass guitar @15 in punk band Takras. Lift off @16 with TB-303, TR-606, effect pedals and 4-track tape. @17: soldering drumpads and pirate radio. Plays in the duo 0.7647, the trio E.T.G. (Elektronische Tasten Gruppe) and the quartet De 4 konkrete knirkekarer.
