Kristoffer Rygg known as Garm, Trickster G. Rex and God Head, is a double Spellemannprisen-nominated and double Oslo-prize winning vocalist and producer known as the frontman of Ulver as well as being former producer and singer of Arcturus. Rygg is noted for his multi-range singing styles and production talent in a wide array of styles, including black metal, avant-garde metal and rock, experimental music, ambient and film music. Born in Oslo but raised in Cascais, Kristoffer Rygg was 16 years old when he formed Ulver, considered one of the most iconoclastic bands from the Norwegian black metal scene, he was an instrumental instigator for subcategories such as avant-garde metal. In addition, he was vocalist for Borknagar and Arcturus, both of which comprise many eminent musicians from the early Norwegian black metal scene. Rygg was responsible for introducing Borknagar to the singer who replaced him, ICS Vortex, when he resigned from the band. Kristoffer Rygg possesses a wide range of vocal textures and styles, ranging from baritone, countertenor and black metal style screaming.
He records multiple tracks of himself to create dense male choirs on albums such as the majority of the vocals on Kveldssanger. In 2005, Rygg collaborated with Portuguese musician/producer Daniel Cardoso in the project Head Control System; the music was described by the label as "groovy rock/metal with progressive edges and cinematic components." Their first and only full-length, entitled Murder Nature was released on 4 April 2006 through The End Records. In recent years Rygg has been involved in freeform/improvisational project Æthenor which includes notable musicians such as Stephen O'Malley of Sunn O))), Daniel O'Sullivan of Guapo and David Tibet of Current 93. In April 2008 he played five concerts with Æthenor, it was his first time on stage in over a decade. Rygg has since participated in several concerts with Æthenor, their triple residency at the Oslo jazz club Blå resulted in the much-acclaimed 4th album En Form for Blå. In 2009, fifteen years after their only concert back in 1993, he decided to reintroduce Ulver live in concert.
The first show was hosted by the Lillehammer Norwegian Literature Festival Norwegian Festival of Literature, initiated by the late author Stig Sæterbakken. A year and after a series of shows around Europe, Rygg stood in front of a full house at the main stage of Oslo's National Opera & Ballet. A DVD/Blu-ray from the event was released commercially, includes liner notes by Rygg and Sæterbakken. Rygg owns and operates Jester Records, an underground label specializing in experimental music, including Ulver, which has since their early metal days metamorphosed into a musical composite difficult to categorize, he has acted as guest vocalist, engineer, remixer etc. for a large list of other artists, including Alkaline Trio, Mindless Self Indulgence, Genghis Tron, Mayhem, Ihsahn, Dimmu Borgir, The Gathering, Carpenter Brut and Sunn O))) et al. He is part of the studio-collective Crystal Canyon in Oslo, has two children and Astra.

A record producer or music producer oversees and manages the sound recording and production of a band or performer's music, which may range from recording one song to recording a lengthy concept album. A producer has varying roles during the recording process, they may gather musical ideas for the project, collaborate with the artists to select cover tunes or original songs by the artist/group, work with artists and help them to improve their songs, lyrics or arrangements. A producer may also: Select session musicians to play rhythm section accompaniment parts or solos Co-write Propose changes to the song arrangements Coach the singers and musicians in the studioThe producer supervises the entire process from preproduction, through to the sound recording and mixing stages, and, in some cases, all the way to the audio mastering stage; the producer may perform these roles themselves, or help select the engineer, provide suggestions to the engineer. The producer may pay session musicians and engineers and ensure that the entire project is completed within the record label's budget.
A record producer or music producer has a broad role in overseeing and managing the recording and production of a band or performer's music. A producer has many roles that may include, but are not limited to, gathering ideas for the project, composing the music for the project, selecting songs or session musicians, proposing changes to the song arrangements, coaching the artist and musicians in the studio, controlling the recording sessions, supervising the entire process through audio mixing and, in some cases, to the audio mastering stage. Producers often take on a wider entrepreneurial role, with responsibility for the budget, schedules and negotiations. Writer Chris Deville explains it, "Sometimes a producer functions like a creative consultant — someone who helps a band achieve a certain aesthetic, or who comes up with the perfect violin part to complement the vocal melody, or who insists that a chorus should be a bridge. Other times a producer will build a complete piece of music from the ground up and present the finished product to a vocalist, like Metro Boomin supplying Future with readymade beats or Jack Antonoff letting Taylor Swift add lyrics and melody to an otherwise-finished “Out Of The Woods.”The artist of an album may not be a record producer or music producer for his/her album.
While both contribute creatively, the official credit of "record producer" may depend on the record contract. Christina Aguilera, for example, did not receive record producer credits until many albums into her career. In the 2010s, the producer role is sometimes divided among up to three different individuals: executive producer, vocal producer and music producer. An executive producer oversees project finances, a vocal producers oversees the vocal production, a music producer oversees the creative process of recording and mixings; the music producer is often a competent arranger, musician or songwriter who can bring fresh ideas to a project. As well as making any songwriting and arrangement adjustments, the producer selects and/or collaborates with the mixing engineer, who takes the raw recorded tracks and edits and modifies them with hardware and software tools to create a stereo or surround sound "mix" of all the individual voices sounds and instruments, in turn given further adjustment by a mastering engineer for the various distribution media.
The producer oversees the recording engineer who concentrates on the technical aspects of recording. Noted producer Phil Ek described his role as "the person who creatively guides or directs the process of making a record", like a director would a movie. Indeed, in Bollywood music, the designation is music director; the music producer's job is to create and mold a piece of music. The scope of responsibility may be one or two songs or an artist's entire album – in which case the producer will develop an overall vision for the album and how the various songs may interrelate. At the beginning of record industry, the producer role was technically limited to record, in one shot, artists performing live; the immediate predecessors to record producers were the artists and repertoire executives of the late 1920s and 1930s who oversaw the "pop" product and led session orchestras. That was the case of Ben Selvin at Columbia Records, Nathaniel Shilkret at Victor Records and Bob Haring at Brunswick Records.
By the end of the 1930s, the first professional recording studios not owned by the major companies were established separating the roles of A&R man and producer, although it wouldn't be until the late 1940s when the term "producer" became used in the industry. The role of producers changed progressively over the 1960s due to technology; the development of multitrack recording caused a major change in the recording process. Before multitracking, all the elements of a song had to be performed simultaneously. All of these singers and musicians had to be assembled in a large studio where the performance was recorded. With multitrack recording, the "bed tracks" (rhythm section accompaniment parts such as the bassline and rhythm guitar could be recorded first, the vocals and solos could be added using as many "takes" as necessary, it was no longer necessary to get all the players in the studio at the same time. A pop band could record their backing tracks one week, a horn section could be brought in a week to add horn shots and punches, a string section could be brought in a week after that.
Multitrack recording had another pro
White1 is the third album by Sunn O))). It was the most significant departure from their original style to date; each track was experimental in its own way, with Julian Cope reciting occultic druidist poetry for half of "My Wall", Norwegian lyrics sung by Runhild Gammelsæter of Thorr's Hammer as an intro to a drum machine and stoner metal bass riff in "The Gates of Ballard," and the drone track "A Shaving of the Horn that Speared You." The lyrics to "The Gates of Ballard" come from "Håvard Hedde", a Norwegian folk song. Another metal version of "Håvard Hedde" had been recorded in 1995 by Storm. In Q magazine's August issue, they named White1 as the 18th loudest album of all time, just above AC/DC's Back in Black and below the Jimi Hendrix Experience's album Are You Experienced?

ATGCLVLSSCAP is the tenth studio album by Norwegian experimental collective Ulver. Written and produced by Ulver, the album was released on 22 January 2016 via newly formed, London-based label House of Mythology; the music was culled from multitrack recordings made at twelve different improvisatory "free rock" live shows the band performed in February 2014, edited and enhanced in the studio by Daniel O'Sullivan. The album has been described as "Ultimately a piece of work that exists above and beyond any conventional live recording, rather a hallucinatory travelogue as potent an experience to bear witness to as it was to construct."On 30 October 2015 the song "Cromagnosis" was broadcast on Baba Yaga’s Hut via online radio station Resonance FM, uploaded to Mixcloud. The song "Moody Stix" features samples from the song "Doom Sticks" from A Quick Fix of Melancholy. "Glammer Hammer" reinterprets "Glamour Box" from Messe I. X-VI. X. "Nowhere" is a new arrangement of "Nowhere/Catastrophe", "Ecclesiastes" reinterprets the ending of "Tomorrow Never Knows".
"England's Hidden" contains vocal samples of "England" from Wars of the Roses. The album's title, ATGCLVLSSCAP, is an initialism referring to the first letter of each twelve signs of the zodiac, from Aries to Pisces. On 2 January 2014 Ulver announced an 11-date European tour: "the February dates will consist of new and improv-based material to revolve around motifs familiar to our familiars. We had a good experience doing just that in Oslo in August, so a more free-ranging form is what we are aiming for this time. We are looking forward to get out there, hope for some interesting music to be born those evenings and nights. We aim to document some of it for those of you who cannot come." Kristoffer Rygg added, "The tour was to be an experiment, kind of loose and scary for a band as'set in their ways' as us... It is borne out of that feeling, being a bit bored with the circumstances, it was quite liberating to do something more in the moment. One night a jam could be five minutes, the next it could be fifteen.
We couldn’t have captured these songs in a studio environment."On 3 June 2015, on the band’s official website, in a statement titled "Only Theatre of Pain", Ulver announced Daniel O'Sullivan, working under the moniker "12", had taken the multitrack recordings and begun sculpting and editing hours of material in his North London home, before Anders Møller, Kristoffer Rygg and Tore Ylwizaker got involved, completing the recordings at Subsonic Society and Oak Hill Studios, Oslo. ATGCLVLSSCAP was recorded on the following dates: 07/08/13 – Blå - Oslo, Norway 01/02/14 – Savoy Teatteri, Finland 05/02/14 – B90, Poland 06/02/14 – Lido, Germany 07/02/14 – Akropolis, Czech Republic 09/02/14 – Dynamo Grosser Saal, Switzerland 10/02/14 – Szene, Austria 11/02/14 – Backstage, Germany 12/02/14 – Werkstatt, Germany 13/02/14 – 013, Netherlands 15/02/14 – Bloom Mezzago, Italy 16/02/14 – Circolo Degli Artisti, Italy 26/04/14 – Club Volta, Russia At Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, ATGCLVLSSCAP has an average score of 70 based on 8 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".
The Quietus wrote, "Ulver have perfected the art of musical metamorphosis, yet they opt to balance all of their previous learnings on ATGCLVLSSCAP. Traces of so much lie therein, each of the twelve tracks gives more with every listen, revealing new depths and fresh signposts to previous musics. ATGCLVLSSCAP is the most realised album they'll release." Dom Lawson of Metal Hammer praised the album, adding, "Ulver continue to transform themselves at will and the results are thrillingly unpredictable but predictably thrilling." Writing for musicOMH, Sam Shepherd concludes, "ATGCLVLSSCAP is an album that explores the cosmos through a series of dichotomies. It is instinctive but planned, primal but enlightened, hazy but focused; the only sure thing about it is that it is Ulver's finest work to date." Benjamin Bland from Drowned in Sound said, "In a not dissimilar fashion to 2014’s collaboration with Sunn O))), ATGCLVLSSCAP unhurriedly glides through its run time without feeling ponderous. Building up so many layers of gorgeous sound over its initial hour that its transformation into more traditional song craft near its conclusion feels more like the beginning than the end.
Despite its hefty length ATGCLVLSSCAP works as a triumphant departure from the confines of the temporal."Jedd Beaudoin of PopMatters said, "Ulver creates its own world with this album, exists on its own terms and asks us to consider embracing something, outside the norm but well within the human experience and worth the journey of transformation it takes us on. Ulver has once more created a record that will live far beyond this time and will be spoken of in the most reverent of tones and that’s as it should be." John Robb from Louder Than War describes the albums as "an aural adventure to get lost in. A droning dark masterpiece of groundbreaking music that slithers out of dull and boring stuff like categories. 23 years in and the band are on the verge of becoming a major force. ATGCLVLSSCAP is their statement. It's multi faceted and beautifully dark. It's the soundtrack to a film, it is grand and darkly restless. It has a beauty and danger and is utterly compelling.”Paul Travers from Kerrang! was much more critical, saying, "There are some nice hypnotic grooves, but this smells of self-indulgence.
Worse, it’s boring as hell, proving geniuses can misste
An album is a collection of audio recordings issued as a collection on compact disc, audio tape, or another medium. Albums of recorded music were developed in the early 20th century as individual 78-rpm records collected in a bound book resembling a photograph album. Vinyl LPs are still issued, though album sales in the 21st-century have focused on CD and MP3 formats; the audio cassette was a format used alongside vinyl from the 1970s into the first decade of the 2000s. An album may be recorded in a recording studio, in a concert venue, at home, in the field, or a mix of places; the time frame for recording an album varies between a few hours to several years. This process requires several takes with different parts recorded separately, brought or "mixed" together. Recordings that are done in one take without overdubbing are termed "live" when done in a studio. Studios are built to absorb sound, eliminating reverberation, so as to assist in mixing different takes. Recordings, including live, may contain sound effects, voice adjustments, etc..
With modern recording technology, musicians can be recorded in separate rooms or at separate times while listening to the other parts using headphones. Album covers and liner notes are used, sometimes additional information is provided, such as analysis of the recording, lyrics or librettos; the term "album" was applied to a collection of various items housed in a book format. In musical usage the word was used for collections of short pieces of printed music from the early nineteenth century. Collections of related 78rpm records were bundled in book-like albums; when long-playing records were introduced, a collection of pieces on a single record was called an album. An album, in ancient Rome, was a board chalked or painted white, on which decrees and other public notices were inscribed in black, it was from this that in medieval and modern times album came to denote a book of blank pages in which verses, sketches and the like are collected. Which in turn led to the modern meaning of an album as a collection of audio recordings issued as a single item.
In the early nineteenth century "album" was used in the titles of some classical music sets, such as Schumann's Album for the Young Opus 68, a set of 43 short pieces. When 78rpm records came out, the popular 10-inch disc could only hold about three minutes of sound per side, so all popular recordings were limited to around three minutes in length. Classical-music and spoken-word items were released on the longer 12-inch 78s, about 4–5 minutes per side. For example, in 1924, George Gershwin recorded a drastically shortened version of the seventeen-minute Rhapsody in Blue with Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra, it ran for 8m 59s. Deutsche Grammophon had produced an album for its complete recording of the opera Carmen in 1908. German record company Odeon released the Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky in 1909 on 4 double-sided discs in a specially designed package; this practice of issuing albums does not seem to have been taken up by other record companies for many years. By about 1910, bound collections of empty sleeves with a paperboard or leather cover, similar to a photograph album, were sold as record albums that customers could use to store their records.
These albums came in both 12-inch sizes. The covers of these bound books were wider and taller than the records inside, allowing the record album to be placed on a shelf upright, like a book, suspending the fragile records above the shelf and protecting them. In the 1930s, record companies began issuing collections of 78 rpm records by one performer or of one type of music in specially assembled albums with artwork on the front cover and liner notes on the back or inside cover. Most albums included three or four records, with two sides each, making six or eight compositions per album; the 12-inch LP record, or 33 1⁄3 rpm microgroove vinyl record, is a gramophone record format introduced by Columbia Records in 1948. A single LP record had the same or similar number of tunes as a typical album of 78s, it was adopted by the record industry as a standard format for the "album". Apart from minor refinements and the important addition of stereophonic sound capability, it has remained the standard format for vinyl albums.
The term "album" was extended to other recording media such as Compact audio cassette, compact disc, MiniDisc, digital albums, as they were introduced. As part of a trend of shifting sales in the music industry, some observers feel that the early 21st century experienced the death of the album. While an album may contain as many or as few tracks as required, in the United States, The Recording Academy's rules for Grammy Awards state that an album must comprise a minimum total playing time of 15 minutes with at least five distinct tracks or a minimum total playing time of 30 minutes with no minimum track requirement. In the United Kingdom, the criteria for the UK Albums Chart is that a recording counts as an "album" i
Ulver are a Norwegian experimental musical collective founded in 1993, by vocalist Kristoffer Rygg. Their early works, such as debut album Bergtatt, were categorised as folklore-influenced black metal, but the band has since evolved a fluid and eclectic musical style, blending genres such as rock, electronica and chamber traditions, noise and experimental music into their oeuvre. 1997 marked their international debut with the release of their third album Nattens madrigal through German label Century Media. However, following discord with the label, Kristoffer Rygg formed his own imprint, Jester Records, in 1998. British composer and multi-instrumentalist Daniel O'Sullivan joined the collective in 2009, the band performed some of their first live concerts in their 15-year lifespan, including the prestigious Norwegian National Opera. Ulver have sold in excess of half a million records, been twice nominated for the Norwegian Grammy Awards, Spellemannsprisen, in different categories, won Album of the Year at the Oslo Awards for Shadows of the Sun in 2008, won the NATT&DAG award for Best Live Act in 2011, earned a global reputation for stylistic unpredictability.
Harmony Korine, the controversial director of films like Gummo, commented: "There's a real lineage from a composer like Wagner to a band like Ulver." Author and musician Julian Cope has said, "Ulver are cataloguing the death of our culture two decades before anyone else has noticed its inevitable demise." The band was founded in 1993 in Oslo by vocalist Kristoffer Rygg together with Grellmund, Robin Malmberg, Carl-Michael Eide, Håvard Jørgensen, A. Reza. Ulver issued their first demo cassette, Vargnatt, in November 1993, their music and style was consistent with the Norwegian black metal subculture of the early 1990s. However some have noted the avant-garde, jazz and gothic influences that would shape the band's sound; the archaic Dano-Norwegian lyrics were influenced by Scandinavian folktales and inspired by Baroque poets such as Ludvig Holberg and the hymn-writer Thomas Kingo. Their debut album, the first part of what has become known as Ulver’s "Black Metal Trilogie," was issued in February 1995 through Norwegian label Head Not Found.
The album was met with critical acclaim, was notable for blending black metal, harsh vocals and blurred, buzzing guitars with quiet, folk-like acoustic passages. It was praised for its unique atmosphere and was described as "mysterious, melancholic and oddly tranquil."For their second album Kveldssanger, issued March 1996 by Head Not Found, Ulver eschewed a typical black metal sound by incorporating classical guitars and choral chamber chants overlaid with subtle orchestral landscapes. The album was a drastic contrast to Bergtatt, whilst still retaining the atmospheric and folk themes. Vocalist Rygg has since remarked that Kveldssanger, despite strong content, was an "immature attempt at making a classical album"; the album was praised for its atmosphere, evoking a feeling of eerie solitude. Following the success of their first two albums, Ulver signed with German label Century Media for their third album Nattens madrigal, issued in March 1997, marking the band’s international debut; the album showcases a black metal style similar to Bergtatt, abandoning the acoustic and atmospheric elements of Kveldssanger, with an intentionally underproduced sound.
The album has been described as "raw and grim black metal at its blackest." A common myth about the album is that the band spent the recording budget on Armani suits, cocaine and a Corvette. Kristoffer Rygg, has stated that this is not true; the album has been described as "so fast and ferocious and the vocals so garbled that it's best just to take the sheer sonic force as reflecting the band's concept, rather than trying to piece it all together."Metal Injection concluded "Kveldssanger had no electric instruments, Nattens madrigal had no acoustic instruments, but Bergtatt, has both acoustic and electric instruments. If that’s the case Nattens madrigal showcases the black metal prowess of the band; the album answers why people were so angered by Ulver’s transition away from black metal, why people are still bitter at their direction today."In 1997, Century Media issued The Trilogie – Three Journeyes Through the Norwegian Netherworlde, a limited edition collection, containing Bergtatt and Nattens madrigal in LP Picture Disc format, housed in a cardboard box, with a booklet & bonus posters.
Rygg invited composer and sound architect Tore Ylwizaker into the collective in order to expand their artistic and musical visions. The album was issued through Rygg’s own imprint, Jester Records, a label born out of discord between Ulver and Century Media. Musically, the album blended electronics, industrial music elements, progressive metal and avant-garde rock, adding ambient passages. Lyrically, the album incorporates the entire text of William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, utilising guest vocalists on several songs; the album received widespread acclaim from critics within both the rock/metal and alternative music press - being awarded ‘album of the month’ in several high-profile magazines such as Terrorizer, Metal Hammer, Rock Hard and ranked in their end of year's best polls. However, the album’s transitional nature alienated many fans of the band's first three albums - caus
