24. February 1976 – 8. February 2011
It’s always very sad when somebody your age dies. Today I found out that Bjössi died the night before.
I met him for the first time @ the Aldrei fór ég Suður festival last year. We talked about remixing Sigur Rós, Ronald equipment and promoting Weirdcore on my blog.
The last performance of Biogen I experienced was @ Airwaves last year @ the fantastic venue Tjarnarbio.
An Icelandic music pioneer passed away…
Biogen about Ajax (together with DJ Thor) in the documentary “Electronica Reykjavik“:
Bob Cluness wrote some nice words on his blog
Iceland Music Export (IMX) interviewed him last year about the Weirdcore project.
Here are some videos I shot last year:
On stage @ Aldrei fór ég Suður
In the swimming pool
With Mugison on Mugiphone
With the Synchronised Swimmers of Davíð Þór
Recently I posted about his career on my Icelandic Music Museum blog.
On Facebook he gave a reaction; he had some troubles with my name.
