“Elektroakustisch” means that the music on this album is produced with
and without electronic devices. The title does not imply a genre or habitus.
“Studie” stands for an experimental, process-orientated method. I do not
consider these “Studien” as complete songs or tracks.
“Elektroakustische Studien” is no promise. It is a desrciption a priori.
No genres. No limitations. Just me.

Born in 1981, Icelandic electronic musician Ruxpin (Jonas Thor Gudmundsson) first started producing music at the age of 14. His first release the Mission EP was released on Thule Record’s more chillout imprint Uni:Form Recordings in 1999. Later that year Uni:Form released Gudmundsson’s first full length Radio. The highly acclaimed Elektrolux (Germany) imprint took notice of Radio and subsequently released his next two LPs (Midnight Drive & Avalon), alongside with one LP on their sublabel Mikrolux. In late 2006 he released Elysium which was also released via Elektolux’s Mikrolux imprint. In early 2009 Gudmundsson’s sixth full length entitled Where Do We Float From Here? was released digitally via n5MD’s Enpeg Digital imprint. Ruxpin has since signed on to n5MD for the physical release of Where Do We Float From Here? as well as future releases by Gudmundsson’s Ruxpin alias. Jonas has done various live shows with artists such as MúM, Biogen, Alex Paterson, Bola, Yagya, Jega and many more. Various live shows in Belgium, Iceland, Denmark, Netherland, France, Latvia, Estonia & Catalonia
Where do we float from here?
The Microphones was a lo-fi band based in Olympia, Washington, and fronted by Phil Elvrum. Elvrum is the principal member of the band, but he has collaborated with many other musicians on his records.
In 2004, Elvrum announced that he had changed the name of his band to Mount Eerie, and has since put out many releases as Mount Eerie, including three full-length albums. In January 2007, Elvrum released a new single under the Microphones moniker, titled Two Songs by the Microphones, the only Microphones release since the name change. He has since continued to release music as Mount Eerie.

The Singing From Mount Eerie
Active Child is the electronic-meets-choral project of musician Pat Grossi. Growing up in New Jersey, Grossi sang with the Philadelphia Boys Choir and was influenced by the rhythms of ‘80s alternative dance bands like New Order. Combining these elements with his otherworldly falsetto, live harp, and evocative lyrics, Active Child was born. The project debuted in 2010 with an EP, Curtis Lane, for Merok Records. These soaring soundscapes caught the ears of bliss popsters School of Seven Bells, who later toured alongside Active Child; they remixed each other’s songs for a split 7”. Active Child’s first full-length recording, You Are All I See, followed in summer 2011 on the Vagrant label, taking listeners on an intimate journey of the highs and lows of relationships and identity.

Gem Club is the musical project of Christopher Barnes with cellist Kristen Drymala and vocalist Ieva Berberian. They first released an EP Acid and Everything July 2010 followed up by their debut album Breakers on Hardly Art late September 2011
Acid and Everything
Heavy, psychedelic, instrumental rock music. Recorded in the summer of 2006, this gem sat dormant for some time before we picked it up as our first full-length release, though it briefly attracted the attention of Battle Kommand Records. Strong guitar playing with big chords and memorable melodies is paired with a backbone of sweetly technical drumming, with a delicate layer of cinematic ambience over the top.

What The Blood Revealed
What The Blood Revealed hail from Ayrshire on the west coast of Scotland. They came together in late 2004 and have created a sound which lies somewhere between alt-rock and post-metal. In 2007 What The Blood Revealed released their self-titled debut EP and the band is currently at work on their first full length effort.
What The Blood Revealed have already drawn comparisons with bands such as Red Sparowes, Tides and Isis and are highly recommended to all fans of this particular genre.
