now is the time to share more of my work than just the finished music! I have been hoarding sounds and collecting (and also been modifying) instruments all along. I have also been doing a lot of research about how to do various things in electronic music. To share some of that I will kick off the COUtorials january 2020. The COUtorials are monthly tutorials accompanied by sample packs of my instruments and collected or designed sounds. First out is one about meowing on synths:
Is this the twentieth full lenght album by Center of the Universe? Well we lost count! The Unknown album continues the bands move towards music for the dance floor; Ambient boogie, faux-oriental disco, electronic music as if it was not split to a thousand micro-genres.

The sleeve is a drawn by Espen Friberg
Center of the Universe is known for many as a remixer, and for uncountable performances in various localtions often other than music venues. The live show incorporates humorous multimedia and clarinette playing and soothing singing alongside live electronics.
