Sverre Knut Johansen - Earth from Above

Artist: Sverre Knut Johansen
P: 2016

Earth From Above, Sverre Knut Johansen’s first release on Spotted Peccary Music, introduces a rich, fresh approach to the symphonic-electronic style of orchestrated composition, immediately evoking a soaring perspective of unusual terrestrial landscapes from high above the skies, all illuminated through melodic compositions, at times austere, and always a sound experience filled with emotional, poetic content. This refined approach builds on lush atmospheres, rhythmic elements, melodic structures, and dense layers of endless floating sounds and effects to create dramatic, dreamy landscapes and meaningful enticing journeys. Sverre Knut Johansen – along with featured Spotted Peccary guest artist David Helpling, who contributes emotive guitar textures and tonalities throughout the project – combines a selective array of electronic instruments, guitar samples, synthesizer pads and elements, as well as a diverse menu of rhythmic components and percussive sounds to define his visceral orchestra. This ensemble dances, illuminates, and pulsates as though conducted from the Northern Lights that fill the sky above the composer’s home. But it is Sverre Knut Johansen’s melodic sensibilities that gives this exciting music its focus and purpose, and his attention to detail and dedication to quality production that delivers such an elegant experience.

Sverre Knut Johansen - Secret Space Program

Artist: Sverre Knut Johansen
P: 2017

Secret Space Program, Sverre Knut Johansen’s second release on Spotted Peccary Music, focuses a distant lens on some of life’s strangest and possibly most impactful questions. Who are we? Where did we come from? Are we alone? Inspired by fantastic stories of extra-terrestrial intelligence, Johansen magnifies these inquiries, addressing them through a large array of synthesized instruments and soundscapes. The resulting electro-symphonic compositions unveil a deeply compelling musical experience. The album’s concept shimmers with the enthralling aura of a sci-fi story, flirting with conspiratorial questions reminiscent of The X-Files, as the “Secret Space Program” of Johansen’s musical tale investigates our involvement with non-terrestrial intelligence. “There are many who argue that there are secret organizations cooperating with extraterrestrials on several levels. So-called black ops programs.” Johansen explains. “What if these stories were true? Would we find that there is a secret base located on the moon, or that there are organizations on Earth that have daily contact and interaction with extraterrestrials?” The photorealistic artwork by acclaimed visual artist Michal Klimczak, along with captivating track titles like “MILAB (Military Abduction),” “LOC (Lunar Operation Command),” “Orb Beings,” and “IE (Intuitive Empath)” embellish the album’s story with sensational details, while the music, filled with mystery, drama, tension and wonder, underscores the extraordinary saga. Masterfully soaring between melodic peaks of dramatic intensity and deep lush valleys of ambient meditations, the excitement and subtle introspection of Secret Space Program serves as a soundtrack to what some have imagined could be the greatest discovery of all – that we are not alone!

Sverre Knut Johansen - The Vast Expanse

Artist: Sverre Knut Johansen
P: 2017

THE VAST EXPANSE, Sverre Knut Johansen’s third release on the Spotted Peccary Music label, offers a fantastic sci-fi themed electro-symphonic trek through the human awareness and contemplation of the Universe and its origin. Joined by acclaimed ambient guitarist David Helpling, Johansen shapes intriguing musical meditations, delicately crafting organic and synthetic environments that effortlessly underscore the grandeur of the album’s magnificent theme. Driven by compelling rhythmic elements, the music is always in motion as orchestrated arpeggios and pulsing bass lines wind their way through rich atmospherics and heavenly dreamscapes. Johansen’s soaring melodies and detailed sequences, supported by Helpling’s spacial guitar textures and deep layered atmospheres, evoke finely tuned soundspaces filled with mystery and awe. Inspired by the theory of the Big Bang and the writings of the late theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, Johansen crafted the album’s theme around the mysteries and theories surrounding the very beginning of the Universe, and humankind’s place in the vast expanse. Johansen explains, “All of us eventually ask ourselves ‘Where did we come from?’, ‘How did we come to exist?’ We know everything is in motion and expanding outward from a single point. This album is about that journey inside our mind trying to connect us all together with the Universe, a reflection upon the creation and how it all started.” Track titles like “Origins of the Universe”, “Space and Time”, “DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid)”, “Perfect Creation”, and “Abiogenesis” highlight Johansen’s thematic focus, while the music, filled with wonder, drama, and determination, accentuates the human search for cosmic meaning on this memorable musical exploration through the limitless themes of origin, expansion, and creation.
