Norwegian drummer, electronic musician, composer, and producer.
Evensen is a specialist in improvised modern jazz music combined with electro elements. He is adept in working with acoustic samples/recordings and mixing them together on an electro palette. He is always experimenting within a wonderland where different genres cross over – where jazz meets ambient, and electronica – creating spacious and dramatic soundscapes of profound intensity.
Although well versed in many styles and genres Evensen’s solo album Still you. You still here (2010) is a quintessential example of the core of his work, consisting purely of percussion and electronics. Released on the Berlin based platform FONORUM, it was the world’s very first net-album. www.stillyou-youstillhere.com
