KaffiMann states, «I Love Electro. Electro is great! Todays society would not be possible without electricity and all the things it allows us to do. Everything is more or less a computer these days. So here is my tribute to the Electro Sound, and all things that are powered by electricity. Intended as a slightly manic melody on account of the theme. A bit of speed, lots of distortion, and electro style soundscape. Intense fast paced track, for the intense and fast paced people».
KaffiMann is the moniker for the Aalesund based musician Kent A. Aa. Giskeødegård and he have been making electronica based music in 21 years.
Cosmic Coincidence is the second album from Norwegian solo artist KaffiMann. All the instruments and effects are arranged by the artist, there have been no other individuals involved. There are no samples anywhere. He’s also done the mastering process in a very cold dark cellar using his own self-built speakers, surviving on self made blueberry wine and fraction-frozen mead, utilizing some quite deranged theories about what sound and music is.
The 11 track album is the result of culminated experiences and theories over the past two decades, bringing together a varied range of instrumental tunes ranging from darkness to light, depressive to loving, shy to bold, manic electro to fluffy kittens and from whispers of silence to the great wonders of the universe.
To sum it up, he’s a somewhat-eccentric-DIY-justabout-everything individual. Planning and designing loudspeakers, building amplifiers and loudspeakers, making music and mastering. KaffiMann is without doubt, a left-field artist, doing his own thing.
KaffiMann states, «The first track, Pushwagner, was inspired after I had the opportunity to talk to the artist Pushwagner some years ago, for well over an hour straight. He seemed like a very nice person that used to lead a rough life and created his own avatar to deal with various persons and surrounding environment. I think he was misunderstood by the vast majority until the very end, but he was such a good soul. Rest in peace Pushwagner».
