Release date 10 June 2000



ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE FROM JUNE 2000

I'm 23 years old, male, and Symptoms is my debut album. It is a solo project, all songs are written
and performed by me alone. It is bedroom music, that is, I've composed and recorded everything
on my desktop PC. My studio setup couldn't possibly be smaller. I'm using a slightly defective
digital soundcard costing some 100 pounds, a guitar and a guitar amp. I don't even have my own
sampler or sample source, all sounds used have been collected from various sources throughout
the years.

I am sorry to say my musical preferences are hopelessly alternative mainstream. My main musical
inspirations are Bowie, Nine Inch Nails, Labradford, The Cure. Other influences include early
Leonard Cohen, Sonic Youth, Duran Duran, Metallica, Radiohead even, Siamese Dream by
Smashing Pumpkins, My Bloody Valentine, Angelo Badalamenti, basically things hard, noisy or
beautiful, preferably all at once.

This isn't a manifesto, but facts are boring.

I think, though I am not sure, that I've tried to make a very personal album. My music is possibly
the best description of who I am there is. I've always connected with music that was, to me at
least, highly personal, and somehow it makes sense I would try to do the same with my own
music. This accounts for the expressive nature of my music, but is of course not the only aspect...

Reviews

Proof positive that it's ideas that matter, 23 year old Klaus Ammitzbøll, holed up in his bedroom
somewhere with a bare minimum of resources, has managed to craft a quite stunning album.
