Norwegians Alf Terje Hana and Guttorm Andreasen are very proud to present their new duo adventure, the brand new album «Tapes from Slowland».
The musical companionship of Hana/Andreasen has grown out of several gigs together where the two multi instrumentalists found a common ground in unfound sounds. So they grabbed several guitars, pedals, effect boxes, various iPads and a few synthesizers and spent some rewarding sessions together at Rifferiet, Alf Terje’s own studio in Stavanger, Norway. The result is «Tapes from Slowland», an album full of experimental sounds and ambient soundscapes in an abstract and atmospheric musical landscape on the cusp of ambient electronica, sharp guitars, scary noise and contemporary music.
Alf Terje Hana and Guttorm Andreasen have made and produced all the music. German musician and composer Werner Cee plays the e’chin on the track «Nanula».
«Tapes from Slowland» is available on most digital streaming sevices, including Spotify.
