Biography

Trondheim, Norway (1996 – present)

Since 1996 Northaunt is the project of Hærleif Langås, from Trondheim, Norway. With a special focus on remoteness, melancholy and introspective moods Northaunt combines traditional electronics with field recordings (mainly from nature in Norway), minimal acoustic melodies and samples from other cultural sources, such as the movies of Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman.

The Norwegian Hærleif Langås creates from drones, field recordings (mostly made on location in Norway) and minimalist piano and guitar melodic parts their ambient sound canvas, focusing on solitude, melancholy and introspection. The first two albums NORTHAUNT «The Ominous Silence» (2001) and «Barren Land» (2004) come to the Polish label Fluttering Dragon, but the relationship with Cyclic Law begins in 2002, when the project, as well as two other members of our tour takes participation in the above compilation manifesto «Nord Ambient Alliance». In 2006 NORTHAUNT publishes his third in the discography (except for a few splits with prolific atmospheric-ambient project from Germany VINTERRIKET) and the first album on Cyclic Law «Horizons» (2006). The latter work is somewhat different from the first two, the disc is clearly the more mature, both in terms of sound and in terms of composition.
