Deaf Center

"Red Glow"

From Low Distance

Norwegian duo Deaf Center are Erik K Skodvin and Otto A Totland, who started out “as both friends and enemies at the age of ten in the small town of Langesund”. So far they have made three albums: Pale Ravine (2005) and Owl Splinters (2011) on Type, and this year’s Low Distance on Sonic Pieces. Outside Deaf Center, Totland has released two solo piano albums, and Skodvin has performed under his own name, as Svarte Greiner and in various collaborative projects. He also runs Miasmah Recordings.
