Biography

Umeå, Sweden

Kammarheit is a project from Umeå, Sweden, founded by Pär Boström, who is also behind the project Cities Last Broadcast. Kammarheit’s music paints lush soundscapes that are ominous, beautiful, and breathtaking, with industrial and experimental noises. Currently signed to the label Cyclic Law.

Kammarheit started in early 2000 after a field recording session in an abandoned factory. Inspired by the atmosphere of that special place the first album “Shockwork” was recorded that very same night and this marked the beginning of one of Dark Ambient’s most respected act. The awe felt from these first field recoding ventures translated into a concise sonic vision. Over the course of the next 2 years, five more albums were to be recorded. These were not initially intended for official release, but created as a sleeping aid for Pär’s then incessant insomnia. With time these works were spread to close friends and contacts as very limited CD-R editions and have since been long sought after items. Remastered version of these six releases (carefully so, to keep the original intentions and atmosphere) were released as a box set by Cyclic Law in 2015.

Official albums:
Asleep and Well Hidden (2003)
The Starwheel (2005)

Previously unofficial and private works on tape and CD, which in 2015 were re-released as a 6CD box set through Cyclic Law:
Shockwork (2000)

    So not only is a new album coming in May, we also are getting a 6CD box release with all his earliest material in March. This is already a fucking legendary year for dark ambient!

    It's not a swedish word. It seems to be a made up word, a mix between swedish and german. "Chamberness" would be the translation into english as you stated, but I guess only Boström himself knows why he chose this name for the project.

    What's the English translation? Kammarheit is Swedish for what? Something like Chamberness - to be like a chamber? Open, dark, empty?

    Два последних альбома (уже выпущенных лейблом Cyclic Law) очень удачны, в отличие от выпущенных самиздатом.

    The Starwheel is such a floating deep experience. I see green together with pitch black. Must be the time of the year in the north, and how the woods look like when it rains.The Starwheel is a beautiful, calming, deep and infinite experience.
