Brilliant, overlooked Norwegian synthesist whose 1982 albums Two Faces and Der Prophet were right up there with the likes of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Michael Hoenig and the best of the Berlin school.

Two Faces, like his 1981 debut Inselmusik, was released on the German RP label, and because of its undoubted excellence, Der Prophet was then picked up by noted Norwegian label Uniton (who also released Mark Shreeve's seminal Thoughts Of War album).

Simple but very effective combinations of sweeping strings, warm pads, shimmering FX and soaring leadlines have made his work stand the test of time and I'm amazed this hasn't reached YT before now.

Composed, arranged, recorded, played and mixed by Rolf Trostel in RTR Sound Studio from Sept. 81 - Jan. 82.
