Spacebrain

Fra: Oslo

n the early 80´s I joined the underground scene in Munich where I joined different bands jamming for hours on different instruments, even playing the blues harp in one of the blues bands. I survived my travels in Southern Europe during the second half of the 80s by playing the guitar although I can´t really say I bothered to learn how to play an instrument. Neither do I know how to read music. I´m kind of more interested in making.. Les mer..

n the early 80´s I joined the underground scene in Munich where I joined different bands jamming for hours on different instruments, even playing the blues harp in one of the blues bands. I survived my travels in Southern Europe during the second half of the 80s by playing the guitar although I can´t really say I bothered to learn how to play an instrument. Neither do I know how to read music. I´m kind of more interested in making sounds, and was never eager to find out how to copy a song in the way others struggled to sound exactly like a song from their favourite band. (knock, knock, knock, on the heavens door, yawn)

In 1992 I started to make sculptures in Oslo when cyber punk and techno was at its height. I found out making a song was pretty much the same as making a sculpture. I called the project Spacebrain and every exhibition was a mix of music and performance together with sculptures made of recycled metal, plastic and animal skulls.

In 2000 the Black Metal movement in Norway found Spacebrain, and I toured with Mayhem as their stage designer for a decade. Later on I joined former Mayhem frontman Maniac in his band Skitliv as a bassplayer, which made me realize that even guys who can’t tune an instrument, can play in a band!

I gradually stopped making new sculptures which are to heavy for an old man like myself to carry around.

Out of the ashes of Spacebrain arose Suchthaus.

Suchthaus is my new art concept".
