Tape Discography

Tape were formed in 2000 by brothers Andreas and Johan Berthling together with Tomas Hallonsten.

Their first recording Opera came out in 2002, the second – Milieu in 2003, both released on Häpna.

Tape completed short tours in Europe, the US and Japan, during this period.

In August 2005, Staalplaat released a live CD of Tape in their “Mort Aux Vaches” series.

Andreas Berthling has made records with electronic music under his own name on labels such as
Staalplaat, Fällt, Anechoic and Mitek. He plays with the groups Frontroom Ensemble and Feed and is also active as sound engineer.

Tomas Hallonsten´s sheer musicality and ability to play several instruments has led him to perform and record with a lot of different Swedish artists.

Outside of Tape, Johan Berthling works mostly as a double bassplayer with musicians like Sten Sandell, Raymond Strid and Mats Gustafsson. He has worked with Swedish artists such as Nicolai Dunger, Stina Nordenstam, Goran Kajfes among others.

Tape – Luminarium (2008)

Tape – Luminarium (May 2008)

“Dreaming the same dreams, not knowing of each other. Invoking old times at new places, side by side, not knowing of each other. Longing for yearning; light of dawn and midday sun. A world which lets itself be sensed, not known; the first light of your rosy-fingered youth; birches and concrete, touch and go.

The new album by Swedish group Tape is a luminarium of sound where past and present merge at the speed of light.”

Tape is the trio of Andreas Berthling, Johan Berthling and Tomas Hallonsten from Stockholm, Sweden. This is their fourth album and it was recorded in their Summa studio in Stockholm.

no pass
