SVARTE GREINER is the one man project of Erik K. Skodvin (one half of the duo Deaf Center and the man behind the Miasmah label). While the duo creates dusty grey soundscapes in a surrealistic world of sounds not far from that of David Lynch/Angelo Badalamenti, Svarte Greiner explores a darker, more mysterious, and disturbed universe. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Earth, Volcano the Bear, David Darling, and Deathprod, his output is draped in Lynchian mysticism and horror film cinematics.
Since his release of his debut album Knive in 2006, he has released a series of 12”s, cassettes and limited edition releases, as well as a full-length follow-up CD Kappe. Spring 2010 will see a new album on Digitalis called Penpals Forever, based on his earlier cassette releases. Erik toured with Fever Ray as opening act during their first ever tour last year.
