Soloproject of Jørgen Treen, superproducer behind numerous norwegian topselling artists.
After years of hard production work he decided to finally concentrate on his own music and finishing the longtime work with his debut album.
Smalltown Supersound heard 2 tracks of his pre-production recordings, and was blown away! The label signed a deal right away.
Træen went and stayed in London for six months where he produced his selftiteled debut album. The album became a masterpiece. Out of the wildest chaos of sounds and rythms, Jørgen has created a pop album. Very uncompromising pop though. But even though his soundworld may sound chaotic, it is also very structured, detailed and complex. Træen has managed to turn chaos into beauty. With his fantastic production skills and his arsenal of machines, he has created an organic and warm sound, and a soundworld all of his own.
'Sir Dupermann' is a mastodon of an album; mindblowing, different, timeless and truly orginal.
Træen`s rich and diverse sound is a result of his involvement with lots of different projects and scenes, both as a producer and as an artist. He has worked with everything from harsh noise, contemporary music and grim black metal to pure pop and electronic music.
The album mixes elements from Cornelius`s and Plaid`s electropop, Fennesz` and Jim O`Rourke`s abstract electronics, the European free-jazz tradition of Derek Bailey and Evan Parker, sound effects from cartoons and movies, Aphex Twin, Lou Reed`s Metal Machine Music, the avantgarde sound of Karlheinz Stockhausen and John Cage, Q-Berts turntableism, Luc Ferrari`s musique concrete, Kid 606s electronic punk, Merzbow`s digital noise and the micro/click-scene around Mille Plateaux. Everything performed with the unpretentious attitude of punk rock.
