About LAPLACES DEMON ELECTRONICA: The ideas behind the making of this music aroseafter I had installed encyclopedia software on my son Truls' computer. While trying out the programI discovered a button that randomly picked out words from the encyclopedia. After a fewkeystrokes on "random", the term "Laplaces Demon" appeared. I read the article, which I foundincredibly captivating. This, to me, completely bizarre idea of Pierre Simon de LaPlace got methinking of music as particles in motion. My music would thus be predetermined, in waiting fora higher "hypothetical" intellect. The movements that are now created in the air when my musicis being played through different speakers in different locations have thereby been calculated along time ago, regardless of how complex it is or how many layers it contains? When composingthis music I embarked on a fantastic journey and for some reason the inspiration didn't cease;I felt that I with ease could create a substantial amount of materials towards the making of thisrecord. LAPLACES DEMON ELECTRONICA contains 21 tracks that are tied together in onesingle flow, with 84 bpm and root note E in common. I felt early on that it had to be a completelyelectronic album since the flow of current that occurs in all electronic devices, circuits and processorswhen I work with various forms of crackling, noise, pulses, drones and feedback seemedlike something that should be completely impossible to predict. A way to cheat LAPLACE.
