Today’s Sunday Times has a great article on Danish electro experimentalist Oh Land (AKA Nanna Oland Fabricius).
‘Fabricius — known by her stage name Oh Land — is describing the noises she recorded in her native Copenhagen when she began making music six years ago. “I had a computer in my bedroom, but no instruments,” she recalls. “Instead of drums, I recorded myself hitting pots and pans. I discovered that buzzing flies sound like synths, and that you can make amazing rhythms using door handles. I carried a recorder everywhere. I walked through the traffic in the centre of the city, taping people ringing the bells on their bikes and honking the horns on their cars.”‘
