Featherfin is an art and music project from Norway.
Featherfin likes to mix the highly electronic with the organic. Experimentation is close to his heart, but so is pop, melody and harmonies. His music can be diverse, from the very light and childlike to the dark, aggressive and moody.
His music and his digital collages are created in similar ways; layers upon layers of sound and images, a bit of this and a bit of that, often with elements that doesn’t match in “real life”.
“I don’t want my art nor my music to be “realistic”, even if I often use "real" sounds, photos or people’s life-stories in my works. I want to tell stories, but not so much the stories the original elements tell. I pick elements that fit what I want to express. Often this is a very intuitive process for me, and it is the feelings that run the process, not so much the head.”
Featherfin has previously played in both synthpop-, electronica and industrial bands, but is now working with the iPad as his main music tool. He is also a part in the team who run the indiepop netlabel EardrumsPop.
The name “Featherfin” comes from his interest in marine life, and it’s the name of the feather-like fins of several species of fish.
