Origami Gurk is an Origami Republika subunit consisiting of Thomas Holme A288, Aleksander Tronstad A289, Elise Marie Adamsrød A 297, and me as A333 (these are all Origami agent numbers).
The project started out as a Seidmen and Elise session called The Age of Reason that is/was to be released on TRASS! anarchives via Ambolthue Records.
We have made a few live apperances and appeared on a few compilations. We have an entry at the or_ site here.
"They explore the states of art, music and mind-over-mountains that has so much in common with Senegalese noise-psykedelia, the Pippa Holstein Schoool Of Sonosemantics and the hailstorm of shoegazer-rock that came out of the Nidaros area through the tribalism of among others Motorpsycho and Mrs. Hippi. (...) The Gurks cross-fertilise the true spirit of the 'cross-the-sea brotherhood of man with the toe-numbing traditional Topy astroturf. No vitriolic vesper can hide the fact."
- Tore Honoré Bøe, Avademic Music from Kolbotn/Nidaros entry at the or_ socio-philantropic UN archive
"An absurd kind of Velvet Underground-like thing, where the artists were sporting rabbit ears."
