Norwegian-Scottish experimentalist Bjørn Hatleskog’s work as Romvelope is somewhere between sound sculpture and electroacoustic music. All sounds are generated from a collection of homemade, semi-autonomous instruments. “Hodmandod” incorporates a robotically manipulated electric reed organ, a miniature self-strumming guitar and processed electromagnetic interference from fluorescent lights.
