Biography

Einóma is a collaboration between two Icelandic friends and studio partners, Bjarni and Steindór. Prior to the genesis of Einóma and their intriguing, mysterious strain of experimental electronica, Bjarni and Steindór initially collaborated on short films, writing scripts and playing with sound and camera techniques. As Bjarni and Steindor’s interest in film diminished, the duo began composing their own recordings somewhere between the experimental electronic music, that they say they had been listening to and the ambience that they had hoped to attain with their short films. The first year, almost everything they wrote was without beats - ambient pieces with a lot of vocal samples and distorted sounds.

Einoma’s subsequent experiments with rhythm prompted the release of their debut EP, Floating Point By Zero, via the frequently intriguing Icelandic label Uni:form.

A year later the pair singed to Vertical Form and released their debut album the same year. Undir feilnótum was a deeply atmospheric album, incorporating eight tracks and clocking in at 38 mins in length. Each cut firmly demonstrated their obsessive skill for programming, intricate sequencing and rhythmic construction providing a body of work consisting of varying themes, moods and tempo’s.

After having spent months meticulously sculpting new tracks, Milli Tónverka was released. The album´s title roughly translates to “Music that lies in-between” and indeed, Einóma does reach into the firmament and pull from their electronic husksan essence and soul of great weight and darkness. This is music created with the heart of high technology and the soul of a spirit world not usually seen with human eyes.
