One knows the Berlin School with its representatives Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze & Co., who with their hypnotic style significantly defined electronic music in the seventies. Breidablik have now released "Alduorka", an album that ascribes itself to the Bergen School of Electronic Music. A Norwegian counterpart to the famous Berlin School? Mastermind and keyboardist Morten "Klangmajor" Birkeland Nielsen provides clarity.
eclipsed: How did that start with Breidablik?
Morten Birkeland Nielsen: Breidablik started in 2012 as a one-man project of mine. The debut album "Vinter" was released on cassette in 2017. This led to a contract with Pancromatic Records and three LP releases on the label: "Penumbra" (2017), "Nhoohr" (2019) and "Omicron" (2020). Håkon Oftung joined the band for "Omicron." Meanwhile, we are signed to Apollon Records, which released "Alduorka" in 2022. The line-up was expanded with drummer Trond Gjellum.
