Life. Love. Death.
There are three basic pillars of the general concept of our music we called ..Project Ed og Lys...
(Ed Safinn - voice, synth, programming, guitar, mixing, sax, design, photo, lyrics and Lys S. - voice, guitar, synth, piano, mixing, photo, design, lyrics) ..Project Ed og Lys.. it not only music, but also design and photo, as well as video, and literary tests and painting...
They supplement each other.
Having tried to achieve harmony we .. the members of the project and former inhabitants of megapolises - have left the noise of greater cities behind and moved to the small settlement on the Far North of Norway to be closer to the nature and disengagement.
March of 2006 could be called the date of a birth of the Project as it was the first time we have tried to create something together. Before that Ed has already had an experience of working with various groups, with actors of the most styles but only sketchy and casually.
In 2000 Ed using various games hookups, cassette tape recorders, mobile phones and to that similar techniques has created his solo album of synthesized sounds "Kald Juni ". In 2001 there was a second album "Tann" where sounds of techno music were getting mixed up with classics.
Coming back to the general concept of our music we would like to say it is an alloy of sounds surrounding any person in contemporary world, the medley of the big cities rhythms and internal human nature. That..s why we use man-caused sounds along with those of nature, shaman tambourine and various folklore instruments.
It doesn..t matter where a man lives now. Nevertheless he is snared by rhythm, by movement his phones, computers, news channels and work create... On the other hand, the human values, nature make their way from the depths and butt into this rhythm. Therefore there is no change of rhythm in our music practically; everything is moving as a clock, but we impose other rhythm, our internal one on the work of this clock driving the rhythm to chaos. There are chaos, bugs, ..imposing of non-imposed.., artificial overloads in the sounding, specially created ..crimps.. reminding a sudden knoll on a perfect motorway, a voice from radio, rustle of rain, well-educated Protestant pastor..s speech... Even a human voice itself we are trying to present as a component of the general sounding, as a certain sound from our everyday surroundings.
Now ..Project Ed og Lys.. is actively collaborating with other actors working in different styles of music all around the world.
Here we are, ED OG LYS
