Amethystium CD discography Norwegian composer/producer Oystein Ramfjord's Amethystium is an adventure in modern electronic music (of the non-dance variety). Much in the vein of the Orb and Enigma, ISABLISS strides the divisions between new age meditation, ambient dreaminess, and pop/rock grooves. Unlike some other electronica projects, Amethystium is also slightly more based in rock (i.e., the occasional sweeping guitar solo or steady pulsing rhythm). But the dreamy, surreal ISABLISS ultimately lives up to the wordplay in its title. Chauffeur EP CD Sleepthief

Amethystium albums Aphelion is the point where a planet or any celestial body is furthest from the sun. While this must be pretty dark place, Amethystium breathes light into the shadows. Amethystium is Oystein Ramfjord, a Norwegian composer who shapes elements of electronica and darkwave, evoking classic Tangerine Dream and Kitaro. This is the follow-up album to ODONATA, Ramfjord's acclaimed debut. Voices figure prominently into each song's construction. Often ethereal and wordless, these sound forms give a great depth and haunting quality to the music, while the only discernible lyrics are found on "Autumn Interlude." Amidst pitch shifting and electronic squall, guest vocalist Joyelle Brandt soars, recalling the powerful collaboration between Sarah McLachlan and Delirium. Gregorian inflections are found on "Shadow to Light" and "Exultation." The Indian-themed "Garden of Sakuntala" is driven by the tightly stretched skins of a tabla. "Elvensong" features the cello of Synove Flobak. With a gem cutter's precision, Ramfjord integrates a dizzying array of sonic embellishments into epic meditations. One-Way Sales/Non-Returnable Amethystium: Oystein Ramfjord. Additional personnel: Martha Krossbakken, Joyelle Brandt, John Yannis Fyssas (vocals); Synove Flobak (cello).

Amethystium music CDs This is the debut album from Amethystium which received a groundswell of support from online listeners, to the tune of a half million downloads before its official release. The album is attributed to Oystein Ramfjord, a composer from Norway who makes ambient electronic music full of mystifying sounds. The opening song, "Opaque," begins with an incredible underwater sonar pulse that makes way for passages of Indian vocals that are very reminiscent of Deep Forest. In fact, most songs employ well-crafted samples of ethnic music from disparate regions. These are held together by a steady synth percussion and sweeping vocals. The speaker phasing on "Enchantment" is particularly effective when listeners are wearing headphones, allowing the rich drones and sparkling tabla patterns to become multi-dimensional. "Arcane Voices" uses Gregorian sounding chants cloaked in danceable rhythms. The intriguing packaging has no information about the sound sources or participants, opting instead for a silver dragonfly. Meticulously cobbled together, Amethystium's montage transports the listener to evolving sonic realms. Amethystium: Oystein Ramjford.

Amethystium songs Amethystium, the recording moniker for keyboardist/composer Oystein Ramfjord, makes lavish, sweeping, New Age music by combining ethereal synth effects with pulsing beats and majestic themes. EVERMIND stays true to the Amethystium formula--the music here is like the soundtrack to some as-yet-unmade film of fantasy and adventure. Expansive imaginary landscapes unfold on EVERMIND, pulling the listener through dark locations that might be geographical ("Shadowlands") or psychological ("Reverie"). Guitarist Helge Krabye and vocalists Lee Nisbet and Martha Krossbakken join Ramfjord, but Ramfjord himself generates the bulk of the sound sculptures. His pulsing bass keys, interlocking melody lines, and synth effects (that recall everything from flutes to strings to the cries of birds) all coalesce with rolling rhythms and a strongly meditative atmosphere for an appealing, deep listening experience.
