A contemporary composer and sound artist, SØS Gunver Ryberg's debut EP ‘AFTRYK’ delivers an astonishing sonic storm. Somewhere along the intersection between electronic music and sound art, her characteristic style is recognised for challenging your state of consciousness by transformative musical experiences with insistent rhythms, combined with a meticulous exploration of textures and timbres.
Raw sounds created from synthesis and processed field recordings are framed by symphonic forms and create a unique expressivity.
The processed field recordings in AFTRYK originate from inside Svalbard (an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean) where she travelled in 2009. SØS Gunver Ryberg touched the footprints of the Pantodont (a 60 million old mammal) in the ceiling of a tunnel as she was recording sounds of the mountain collapsing under the activity of the coal mining.
AFTRYK refers to our state of being resonating into the earth.
