about

"Fra en Vugge i Fjellet" - "from a cradle in the mountains" - is the second album of Norway's FEDRESPOR. It is the singular vision of sonic outdoorsman Varg Torden Saastad, from the outback of Telemark: an expression for nostalgia, the pain of rememberance, yet ever moving forward, draped in an air of timelessness.

The sounds and timbres resounding through "Fra en Vugge i Fjellet" are a melange of archaic and contemporary instruments: from the primitive percussion of birchwood and chestnuts to digital synthesizers via traditional Norwegian horns, drums, harps and lyres, all flowing together into a poetic whole. The harmonies and techniques of Fedrespor hark back to diverse sources such as the pastoral hymns of Popol Vuh and Mike Oldfield, the magnificent fjellsynth of Ildjarn-Nidhogg, and the sombre and yearning pomp of the Neofolk genre, converging in a unity imbued in rustic, frostencased swathes of dreamlike nostalgia.

The Janus-faced works of Fedrespor reminisce of the days of yore but also gazes forward, leading the project to higher grounds than your contemporary superficially Norse-themed ethno-ambient. "Fra en vugge i fjellet" is an evocative journey, not just through the northern wildernesses but into the forlorn wilderness of the heart and memories of humankind.

FEDRESPOR Norway

Fedrespor is a conduit for its creator’s grief from the loss of his brother. Such a loss is both a life and experiential altering experience, which lends to the title of this project’s first album: “Tid” (Time)

Fedrespor’s philosophy is tantamount; "Man is the impression of the past and the steps along eternity".

Both modern and ancient instruments are used to craft the soundscape.
