Radio Bongo Manifesto:

On Approach
• Music is about discovering things hitherto unheard.
• By all means be experimental, but let the listener be part of the experiment.
• Compose about obscure things but don’t compose obscurely.

On Description
• You need to set things very thoroughly in time and place unless you have good reasons (not to).
• A sense of place distinguishes a piece of music. It may be a distillation of different places. There must be a very good reason for not describing place.
• You sometimes need to magnify something, describe it amply in a roundabout way. And in the process you discover something.

On Detail
• Oddities are interesting.
• Songs need details that will anchor themselves in your mind.

On Style
• Every song taken by itself should mean something.
• Making music should not create the impression that the composer is trying to be ‘poetic’.

On Revision
• Don’t revise too much or it turns into patchwork.
• Lots of things resolve themselves just by being in the drawer a while.
• Don’t listen to anyone. Not us, either. It’s fatal.

-----------------------------------------------------

A personal note from the artist himself:
A few years ago I saw a documentary about the audio trickery employed in WW2. I was totally flabbergasted and soon absorbed anything I could find on the subject. Artists and scientists alike cooked up incredible situations to fool the German army. Inflatable tanks and trucks stacked with speakers projecting recordings of an imaginary reality were used to deceive and deviate the opponent. This odd scenario influenced me profoundly and drove me towards composing music that related these feelings. The project only collected dust inside my head until President Bongo heard of it and encouraged me to finish. I hope you will enjoy these tracks as much as I enjoyed making them.

Yours truly,
Sveinbjörn Bjarki
