ABOUT
Romvelope logo

   



Bjørn Hatleskog is a London-based artist/producer who records music under the moniker Romvelope. His work is located somewhere between electro-acoustic music and sound sculptural bricolage. It explores the nature of feedback loops, noise and interference and their application via mechanical automation. These ideas are examined through the construction of modular robotic devices which are combined to form generative sound installations. These installations are in turn used as the basis for musical compositions. Since 2002 he has also been managing a small record label called Adaadat.
