“PYRAMIDS ON THE MOON” NOW ON PATREON
August 29, 2022, 3:30 pm
Filed under: News, Release

A 50-year old electrician has a midlife crisis and starts making ambient music. A group of people in Berlin uses sound to induce the release of DMT in the brain in order to travel between dimensions, and a character named ∆EON walks the streets of London while rebelling against the digitally connected society they live in, as part of the “DisCon” activist movement. 

“Pyramids On The Moon – a multi-dimensional autobiography” is a work in progress, where the main body of work is a story about life and music in three parts, each describing an alternative timeline to the author’s own, where the three main “characters” create and release their music under the artist names WAVE∞FORM, MENTAL OVERDRIVE and N∆EON TE∆RDROPS respectively.

Although the three different versions of the author’s personalities exist in parallel universes, they are still somehow connected, and each one encounter different “portals” through which they become aware of the others, without necessarily understanding that these are other versions of themselves.

Through the process of storytelling, “Pyramids On The Moon” allows for exploring questions around identity and authenticity, both on a personal and professional level, and by shifting through the different modes of character the author can use the freedom of not having to be “oneself” to open up for new forms of musical expression.

The text has so far been posted chapter by chapter on the project website, www.pyramidsonthemoon.com, and the musical output of the three artist can be found at the project’s own page on bandcamp.com

Some of the music has also been made available as official releases through the label Love OD Communications, and a series of NFT’s connected to the project has been dropped at objkt.com

You can now support the further development of the story and its connected music by becoming a patron at patreon.com.

WAVE∞FORM – UPON THESE WAVES I SLEEP
April 5, 2022, 10:05 am
Filed under: News, Release

WAVE∞FORM’s debut album “Waveform01” was released through LOVE OD COMMUNICATIONS in 2020, and the follow-up album UPON THESE WAVES I SLEEP is now ready for release.

The tracks on this new album, like most of the material emerging from the project PYRAMIDS ON THE MOON, were inspired by the subject matter of Per Martinsen’s artistic research project THE SEARCH FOR RESONANCE – a three year research project at UiT – The Arctic University of Tromsø that culminated in an exhibition in November 2021.

The exhibition contained a series of installation works, including the “wavemassage” room, where members of the public could lie down on a massage bench connected to a powerful transducer, and have their entire body physically shook by parts of the WAVE∞FORM material that is to be found on this new album.

The new material also explores alternative tuning systems and sometimes leans on music theory sourced from an intense research period looking at everything from sound healing to sonic levitation and ideas of sound as the very origin of the physical universe.

UPON THESE WAVES I SLEEP will be released on all digital platforms on April 29th 2022. The album will also be available on cassette and CD-R through the LOVE OD Bandcamp store.

The album will also be previewed in a special concert at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Høvikodden on Sunday April 24th. More info and tickets here: https://www.hok.no/en/events/wave-form

01: LIFE AFTER DEATH

PYRAMIDS ON THE MOON

A message from Per Martinsen/Mental Overdrive: Dear friends and followers. Firstly I would like to apologise for the recent low activity on this page. The reason is that I’ve been busy working on a new project called “Pyramids On The Moon”. The project has been dubbed “a multi-dimensional autobiography”, and consist of stories about my own life as imagined in three alternative timelines. Coincidentally, all these three versions of myself make music, and also quite coincidentally, one of them makes the music of Mental Overdrive. The output of the other two is of a slightly different form and shape, but hopefully you might still find it interesting if you’ve been following my output over the last three decades. If this sounds like it’s worth checking out, you can take a look at the new project’s Bandcamp page. In addition to the music, the story itself will also be posted in episodes of what I’ve called a “sonic novel”. The first episode is already up on the page. There’s more to come, so follow the page if you’d like to get updated. Thanks for your time! (Illustration by Lasse Marhaug)
