Entangled released on Avian 2019

ALBUM of the month (August) in MIXMAG with a review – 9/10

“This is powerful and sublime”

 REVIEW Resident Advisor – 4.1/5  https://www.residentadvisor.net/reviews/23938

“Experimental techno at its most forceful and refined.”

“It’s an immersive piece of music from one of contemporary techno’s most adventurous producers.

It’s her most varied release so far, and apart from her contribution to a split EP on Paula Temple’s Noise Manifesto it includes her most open embrace of conventional techno. There are tracks that distill perfectly the sound of her live sets at their most approachable and kinetic. “Palacelike Timescale Of Black” and “Levitation” combine twitchy, excitable rhythms with dub techno haze and drones. It’s a rare example of Ryberg allowing dance music sensibilities to overshadow her experimental tendencies, and it sounds great.

Beneath the album’s harsh noise and unrelenting tension is a refined and carefully considered approach. “Trispider” is Ryberg at her most terrifying and unhinged. But the subdued, gorgeous ambience of tracks like “The Presence_Eurydike” shows an ability to use silence and empty space just as effectively as noise and claustrophobia. One of the impressive things about AFTRYK, her first solo release, was the way Ryberg sustained tension, never letting it break or subside. A keen sense of pacing and progression allows her to do this. Here she applies this same skill to ambient works and more melodic tracks like “Magnetic Force,” introducing restraint and sensitivity without compromising on drama.”

“…Ryberg doesn’t need to rely on volume and bass vibration to elicit physical response. At different points Entangled manages to be hair-raising, punishing and caressing.”

Cutterhead OST released on Endless Process 2019 - won for Best Music at Premier's Plan Film Festival and Carl Prize. Nominated Robert Award and The Camille Awards 2021 (decided in February)

SOLFALD released on Noise Manifesto 2018


“….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.”

Resident Advisor  https://www.residentadvisor.net/reviews/22732

“……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.”
