a brief introduction to Origami Arktika

"I found out about Origami Republika through Jarboe. They're difficult to explain, more of a worldwide movement than an organization of artists. They're not just musicians; they're filmmakers, painters, collagists, writers, performers, and ordinary people. Origami Arktika is simply one branch of the whole contingent, which consists of hundreds of branches. Origami Arktika is all about making massive sounds from minimal equipment." - Brian John Mitchell

Music as diverse as their homelandís geography, bridging old world sounds with modern technology. Silicates and stones run through samplers. Artifact flutes poured through electronic processors. Our grandfatherís tales sung through their grandsonís voices. A hybrid of traditional Scandinavian folk and textural ambient noise, celebrating life, friendship, and heritage.
