From Inhibition by School of Comparative Irrelevance
Andre Drage Kvartett is a jazz-rock quartet, playing music that alludes to 70-ies progressive rock, from Jimi Hendrix to King Crimson. Thundering grooves and boundless guitar solos that'll make your blood boil and simultaneously satisfy your nerdy desire for odd time signatures! The band consists of Andre Drage (drums), Håkon Nybø (bass), Espen Skretteberg (guitar) and Håvard Gressum Antonsen (keys).

School of Comparative Irrelevance is a pseudonym under which I sporadically publish some of my solo works, particularly those relating to ambience, noise and electroacoustic music. I am intrigued by the idea of nearly static, repetitive drones, where the only sound that can eventually be heard is that of a very subtle progression. The songs of From Inhibition were all "derived" from the same source material – consisting of only piano recordings, as heard in the first track, From Inhibitions. The first three derivative tracks were made by myself, and the following four were derived by my pal, Sohnified.

Franics Beaufort Trio plays freely improvised music, drawing upon elements of jazz, ambient and avant grade. Though the result often eschews traditional, musical structure; melodies and subtle grooves are seldom too far away. The trio consists of Hilde Marie Holsen (trumpet and electronics), Håkon Nybø (bass) and Andre Drage (drums).

Avernus by SVK
KU_(N/A) is a duo consisting of Claus Sohn Andersen and Håkon Nybø. We make semi-improvised noise and ambient music, using laptops along with any and all kinds of sound sources.  KU is about exploring music technology and making near-soporific drones with just a modest dose of dissonance and unpredictability. Stream some of our music right here, visit us on facebook or go to our bandcamp page for more content.

These Modular Clippings are a set of pre-made modules for sketching synth-voices, or cutting down time by recycling often-used snippets of Max-code. Place the contents of the zip archive in the clippings folder (found within the patches folder of your Max 6 directory) in order to make the clippings available through the paste from context menu. The patches are ready to use with pattrstorage, which makes it very easy and fast to lay out new synth voices, save presets and also build polyphony through a few quick steps.

77_GS is a granular synthesizer which generates sound by breaking down source samples into tiny "sound grains", and then processing each grain separately before putting them back together. I've used this instrument in a number of contexts -- listen to the track Bell Tree for example.

The Tell-Tale Heart (2012) is a short film based on Edgar Allan Poe's short story of the same name. The featured soundtrack explores the borderline between noise and music, and aims to convey the mental derangement of the protagonist through an ambiguous use of sound, employing concepts from electroacoustic music and musique concrète in a filmatic context – such as using sound transformations to cross the divide between diegetic and non-diegetic sound.

Mannen i natten (2009) is a short film about a young man who wakes up from a daze in the middle of a street, with no recollection of the events that brought him there.

The film was written and directed by Tobias Asplin, and created by media production students at NTNU, Trondheim. Music is written and performed by Håkon Nybø.

[Me]
I am Håkon Nybø, a norwegian musician and sound designer. I made this site to showcase some musical and multimedia projects that I am – or have been – involved in. In addition to the projects listed here I’m working professionally as a sound designer and recording engineer at a voiceover studio, doing (primarily) radio and TV commercial work. I've studied at the music conservatory of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), and finished my master's degree in music technology in 2012. My thesis was entitled "Electroacoustic film sound", and combines my interests in electroacoustic composition and sound design for film. I am currently located in Oslo, Norway and on the lookout for sound design work and new musical collaborations. Feel free to contact me!
