Chaotic Morphs aka Øivind Olsen has been involved in music since the mid-70s. He played the organ and synthesizer in a variety of bands until he, in the early 2000s, “found himself” through electronic music.
Øivind Olsen’s main instrument is a constantly expanding, self built Serge modular synth.
Serge was originally made as an affordable, diy-kit synth by Serge Tcherepnin in California in the early 70s. Over the years it has gained status as a cult instrument for free music.
“Q” is Chaotic Morphs first album release, though for years he’s been an active self-publisher on the internet, where he has an international audience.
The album is inspired by a trip to NYC. The compositions tries to reflect both the chaos and the tranquility and anonymity found in the big city. The title and cover art plays with the similarities between modular sytnh patch sheets and metro line maps.
Want to journey to distant lands of wonder? Do you have a hart that craves adventure? Dose your soul yearn for something unfathomable? Then look no further as you are about to embark on a voyage like no other. I have listened to this work repeatedly over and over again for more than twenty years and it just never ceases to move me in ways that little else can. This remaster is particularly worthy of your attention due to the greatly improved clarity and volume. The greatest from the greatest. panzerdivision
This has to be one of if not the greatest albums ever composed and is quite frankly the soundtrack to my life...no really I have listened to this album thousands of times and even after more than twenty years of repeated listening I still do to this day. I purchased this as it has been remastered very impressively resulting in a greatly improved clarity and considerably higher volume than on previous releases. This work will speak to you in a way that very little else can. Beautifully ominous. panzerdivision
