A brief biography


in the mid-90s, discovering the wonderful world of music trackers

A large part of my formative years, the late mid-90s to early 2000, were spent playing in a band. Electronic music wasn’t cool back then, it was associated largely with cheap-sounding air-headed dance music and because of that I never wanted it to be part of my identity. I spent my free time making music with music trackers and being part of the demoscene.

With the emerging experimental electronic sound that suddenly became credible following the release of Radiohead’s Kid A in 2000, using electronic elements started becoming cool again. Even though my main focus still was acoustic music, I completed a bachelor’s degree in Music Technology at NTNU, so programming music was still part of my DNA.

After that, I had become tired of music altogether. The whole music scene had left me weary, so I went on to start working with design and animation. For almost ten years, I stopped playing and producing (with a few exceptions) until around 2012 where I decided to rekindle my old passion.

Much had happened since I was active, and luckily technology had made everything more accessible. I discovered Reaper, which really spoke to me. After some experimenting I decided I was ready to share my music again, and so Limbic Void was born.
