Home Diaires 020: Mind Over MIDI

Home Diaries is an invitation to artists and musicians to create an album or EP to document their personal experience during the lockdown or social distancing conditions that are upon us, due to the coronavirus outbreak. The series reflects a range of sounds, styles and ideas, as each artist portrays their own reflections uniquely. Each release is digital only for now, as we hope to raise what we can to help keep our label ticking over at this time. The releases feature a recurring polaroid image of a small lonely house, with a coloured filter chosen by the artist for each respective release. We interview each artist and this is included as a bonus PDF with the download. You can also check out the Home Diaries series on Spotify if you prefer, which will be available to stream in due course.

For our next Home Diaries we welcome Kristinsund, Norway based artist Mind Over MIDI. Helge Tømmervåg is an artist that has been active under this moniker for 25 years now, with releases on labels such as Silent Season, Shimmering Moods, Rohs! and Beatservice in the early days. He has also recently contributed a short record to Hibernate Recs’ current charity series.

Helge, a serious hardware aficionado, lives a quiet life only emphasised by the Norwegian lockdown since mid May. He has used the time to continue his immersion into the musical equipment that he considers family, making spaces in which he can drop in and out of without applying any conscious themes. Some of these spaces are provided for us here, as a Home Diaries edition which drapes looped, recurring motifs across vacant, icy sonic fields. Both chillingly cold and cosily warm, these soundscapes are best allowed to unfold in full, to give light to hazy moments of vacant clarity.
