Per Åhlund, b. 1976, resides in Stockholm, Sweden where he’s involved in several experimental music-, improvisation- and sound art-projects. His live soundscapes blur the boundaries between noise and music, stillness and hysteria, darkness and light. He creates compositions on the verge of dissolving and focuses on mood and texture rather than tonality and rhythm.
He has toured with acts such as Amber Asylum, ?Alos, b°tong, Origami Galaktika & TxRxP., made multiple releases containing abstract soundscapes of various kind with Skare, Anonyma Alkemister Aural, Aum Arrhythmia, Den Arkaiska Rösten and +/- and has performed in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Germany, The Nederlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Czek Republic, Italy, France, England, and USA.
Live he uses contact microphones, gadgets, loops and effects to form abstract sound environments created in the moment.
“The soundscapes encourage you to travel, and then dissolve, in space and time. To merge with the frequencies. To have a dialogue with yourself. To finally think of nothing. To be released...”
