b. Jonas Thor Gudmundsson, 6 Apr 1981, Iceland. Sketching overt impact from artists such as for example Kraftwerk, Brian Eno, Long term Audio Of London, and Vangelis, Gudmundsson documented his first recording of fairly, experimental electronica (1999’s Radio) at age 17. The follow-up, Midnight Drive, was released by Elektrolux, a Frankfurt-based label well-known for hosting the area Night display on German tv (and releasing some associated down-tempo albums). As though to accentuate the feeling that Gudmundsson’s music could offer an apposite soundtrack for the otherworldly as well as the mystical, Ruxpin’s third recording, Magrathea, produced its name from an imaginary world in writer Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guideline TOWARDS THE Galaxy that was with the capacity of building additional planets. The follow-up, Avalon, in the mean time, took its name from an isle heaven in the traditional western seas where, relating to Celtic story, Ruler Arthur and additional heroes proceeded to go at loss of life. Ruxpin offers notably remixed for performers such as for example Múm, Ampop, Krom, and Sanasol, and was presented on 42 Even more THINGS YOU CAN DO In No Gravity, Thule Information’ wonderful 2002 assortment of electronica that appeared to make explicit the relationship between ambient music as well as the Icelandic topography.
