Arnfinn Killingtveit seems like a Multi-artist with main background from music and sound art. Works with sonic expressions ranging from noise, improvisation and field recordings, to tranquil ambient and more beat oriented electronic music. He has frequented the musical underground scene for many years under different names, most active in recent years with projects like TARFIELD and Swamps Up Nostrils. For live performances he mostly applies self-produced software as well as self-built electro-acoustic instruments and analog noise-gadgets, and have made instruments out of anything from alpine skiing helmets to fleshlights. A. Has also worked with technical and aesthetic advice in connection with other peoples art projects. He has a master in Music technology from NTNU in 2009 focusing on algorithmic composition. He appear as one of the organizer of ”Klubb Kanin”, the ”Støy På Landet” festival, ”Lydeksperimentklubben” and the concert series ”Utfordring”, as well as producer in Trondheim Matchmaking 2009 and the Meta.Morf Biennale 2010. He also ran the very marginal music label “Krakilsk” for some years, putting out 50 releases of Cdr´s printed in his own bedroom, of artists from around the world. He likes trees in a non-sexual fashion and enjoys transgressive thinking in general.
