Gothenburg, Sweden based artist, Nana April Jun, is the alias of Christofer Lämgren, an art world renaissance man and editor at Swedish art magazine YKKY, as well as a noteworthy visual artist. Ontology of Noise is his debut recording, and it fits comfortably among his minimalist peers on the Touch label. The album explores manipulation of digital sources that create single-layered dark, static landscapes that have more in common with everyday sounds and atmospheres, than processed noises. But this could quite possibly be the statement Lämgren is trying to make. Ontology is the branch of metaphysics dealing with the nature of being, and these explorations in sound have an immense amount of commentary on our current states of being. The way we operate is constantly in a state of flux due to the advancements in technology that are made every year. We are constantly finding ways to imitate what we did once by hand with technology. Ontology of Noise is a valid representation of that, replacing the sounds that exist in our human nature with a digital illustration in its absolute purest form.
