Mengi April 7th


Reptilicus & Stereo Hypnosis in Mengi


Icelandic bands Reptilicus and Stereo Hypnosis appear for a rare occasion of electronic music in Mengi in the heart of Reykjavík. Waveshaper Television (from the producers of the 2014 hit independent film I Dream of Wires) will be shooting the concert as part of their upcoming profile of Reptilicus and Stereo Hypnosis.

Reptilicus, a collaboration of two Icelanders, Jóhann Eiríksson and Guðmundur I. Markússon, has stalked the fringes of the Icelandic musical landscape since 1988 and counts among the pioneers of electronic, industrial, and experimental music in Iceland. Taking its cue from the intricacies of industrial electronica, the creativity of krautrock, and Dada, Reptilicus have issued a number of releases on tape, vinyl, anti-vinyl and CD where experiments, noise, percussion, 8mm and wind instruments fuse in an electronic crucible. Currently, Reptilicus is preparing a complete re-issue of its works along with new material in collaboration with Canadian label Artoffact Records.

Stereo Hypnosis began its life in the remote island Flatey in 2006. Originally founded by father and son Óskar and Pan Thorarensen, joined by the composer Thorkell Atlason in 2014. The trio has developed an organic electronic sound, serene and downtempo, and to date released 6 albums. Stereo Hypnosis has toured both sides of the Atlantic in recent years and are currently working on various collaborative projects.

From the producers of the 2014 hit independant film I Dream of Wires, Waveshaper Television is an upcoming subscriber supported web-based video channel dedicated to preserving electronic music history as well as exploring new artists and developments in synthesizer technology.
