“….It’s really easy to throw around descriptors and themes like spatiality, intensity and physicality when it comes to electronic music, but few embody those things and take them to their extremes like SØS Gunver Ryberg…..”

“….Most of the EP continues to explore the more soundtrack-y aspects of Ryberg’s craft. There’s “Dispersion”, which channels a space opera feel with a rotating cast of morphing synth pulses, orchestral gleams and some tumbling glitch for good measure. There’s also a pair of pieces from Eurydike, each a sprawling, overwhelming mass of sound in their own way. “Op ad dybet” and “Lazayak” are the two brawnier, beats-oriented tunes seething with Ryberg’s flavour of futurist industrialism. The former unleashes an unpredictable barrage of kicks out for the 50-hit combo to spin you sideways, whilst the latter wields distortion to devastating returns.”

“….SØS Gunver Ryberg’s reputation as the kind of artist whose music compels you to hire a soundsystem to listen to it there and then.”

“Her talent for sound art is striking…”

“…Her pacing and skill at building suspense on SOLFALD makes your breath quicken, replicating the adrenalin that rises when something could be lurking around the corner in a game. The tension reaches a boiling point on “Op Ad Dybet,” where Ryberg shifts into full-throttle techno and the presence lurking in the shadows is more intense. Where Ryberg’s EP for Contort was focused on mighty percussive rhythms, SOLFALD is more varied, juxtaposing desolate experimental compositions with vigorous techno workouts.”

“……Denne vekselvirkning mellem energierne og strukturerne i de forskellige numre gør, at man som lytter spændt og opmærksomt holdes fast, idet man konstant bevæger sig mellem forskellige sinds- og kropstilstande. Med “SOLFALD” har SØS Gunver Ryberg skabt et kompromisløst og dragende værk, der manifesterer hende som en af de mest banebrydende og genretrodsende elektroniske komponister, vi har i Danmark.”
