below you can find out more about glåsbird projects including albums, compilation appearances, remixes and music for film.
the first section covers music releases by the artist, retracing the glåsbird journey from the very beginning, as the project emerges from the sea-ice of the arctic circle with each new part of the journey added, with an antique map close-up of the region. if you scroll down you can then view any compilation appearances and remixes. music for film is briefly summarised but you can find out more using the 'watch' link above.

whitelabrecs december 2018
"in a brief section of recording space, the artist has stitched together a shrill and lonely coldness using violin, cello, sparse piano notes and other digitally effected acoustic instruments."

"violin, cello, guitar, and filigreed tape effects form a lens through which we can take in the sweep of a wondrously imagined geography. we can see the icy shimmer and glinting light of its stark landscape and feel the profound sense of isolation."

whitelabrecs august 2019
"svalbarð follows the February release of grønland. Both are heart-stopping ambient beauties combining northern-lights ambient drones with delicately performed piano. certainly not a new approach to the genre, but glåsbird pulls it off wonderfully."

whitelabrecs march 2020
"The ideal soundtrack of the Norwegian Fjords, a new watercolour to add to the long list of impressionist ambient. These are fjords made of nature, snow, barren landscapes and small wooden houses that do not in the least affect the natural charm of the place"

whitelabrecs september 2020
"Another absolutely creative and clever transformation of sound from the elusive Glåsbird. Perhaps the most haunting and tense chapter yet, the concrete sound palette cuts through the grey in ways both uneasy and sorrowful. Yet, as with all Glåsbird releases there is a light still a glow, a beacon on an otherwise hostile sea."

whitelabrecs january 2020
"whitelabrecs' on-going sleeplaboratory series continues with this second edition, featuring work by mikael lind, warmth and halftribe. glåsbird's contribution is søvnfjord which roughly translates to sleepy fjord in a piece that uses delicate rushes of reverberating strings. could this be a hint at the location of the next glåsbird album?"

whitelabrecs november 2019
"german artist luis miehlich put together an album of seven tracks along with additional adaptations, for which gallery six, erder, sinerider and glåsbird. Glåsbird's adaptation uses the atmosphere and original piano compositions in full but adds in extra elements of orchestration."

2 hour glåsbird dj mix march 2020
"the evident influences to the glåsbird sound from modern classical music are laid out in this 2 hour journey through the genre. artwork is provided by aldona pivoriene, with the photo captured in norway, the region for the next glåsbird album. the undulating landscape in the image is one of clear beauty and depicts the traditional instruments used throughout this mix. whereas the electricity pylons that run through the valley represent the subtle electronic techniques used in many of the selections."
