SUNS OF SATAN - HELT HELTINDE
PRESENTED BY MATHILDE LARSEN
Suns Of Satan is a dualistic love affair between good and evil, man and woman, at home and away and the musical outlet of danish-norwegian composer, singer and percussionist Kristine Bjørg Markussen in collaboration with her husband multi-instrumentalist Jeppe Søndergård Knudsen.
Bjørg grew up listening to cassette tapes her father copied for her. He was living in the other part of the country and saw the tapes as a way to connect with his daughter. Bjørg listened repeatedly to the tapes containing the works of The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix, the latter becoming one of Bjørgs biggest influences. In her teens Bjørg spent time in Western Africa where she studied african traditional percussion and attended witchcraft rituals.
The music is characterized by little, idiosyncratic melodies in the middle of a cacophony of sound. The relationship between small fragile sounds and big noise is brought to life with sample- and toy keyboards, reverbed twang guitars, vintage and hand-built synthesizers and african percussion.
