The album title is taken from a compilation on the legendary Sky Records, a label that has been an enduring source of inspiration for Bratten along with that of Klaus Schultze’s Innovative Communication. But rather than mimicking the work of these electronic luminaries, Picture Musicsees him forge his own path: one that uncovers beauty in the simplicities of everyday life.
Norwegian electronic artist André Bratten released his debut album Be A Man You Anton Prins Thomas’ Full Pupp label in 2013. He has since released three albums on Smalltown Supersound, and more recently produced Cracks, the acclaimed project from avant-garde saxophonist Benedik Giske. This month Bratten returns with fifth studio album Picture Music.
