Frosta Batteri is a collaboration between Erik Strandh and John Torebo-Gregorius. For the past 15 years both musicians have performed together, with Erik on bass and John on the drums, oftentimes as backup to support a fellow musician's personal project. The artists' adventurous experimentation with an array of synthesizers and samples typically results in non-linear, experimental compositions with almost no discernible structure. Both share a keen interest in videogames, science fiction and longfully await a future world socialist federation... preferably while eating pizza.
A multi-talented musician, Erik primarily plays the bass. Currently on staff as a coder, he also serves as the main composer and sound designer for Southend Interactive. Among other projects, he is responsible for music and sound design for the Xperia Play game "Desert Winds." He contributed with his accordion skills on the ilomilo soundtrack on music tracks "Jelly Moonlight," "Music school" and "Maple Syrup."
For “Songs We Heard In ilomilo,” Frosta Batteri contributed a warm, colorful and swinging samba rendition of "March of the ilomilos," using a rich blend of live instruments, percussion and tasteful electronic treatment.
