They was formed in Tromsoe, Norway in 1986 with third member Geir Jenssen. After half a year of composing and recording demos in Nils' bedroom, they went on Interrail with demo tapes in their baggage. After being turned down by 4AD and other labels, they finally got a deal with Crammed Disques, and moved to Brussels. After Birds Of Passage, Geir left to concentrate on his house project Bleep, later Biosphere. Anneli and Nils now live in Oslo, and Geir has moved back to Tromsoe. Precussionist Andreas Eriksen is recruited as a third associated member, helping out on live shows. In 1992 they where choosen as official musicians for the 1994 Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer. They might make music and jingles for the olympics, but nothing is decided yet. They will play around the world in 93 on one-off shows as part of the 'official olympic artist' deal. Geir is currently working on music for a short film based on a short story by Knut Hamsun. He is playing one-off shows on various festivals, and will soon have a tour in Norway. He has recorded tracks enough for a new album, and is currently picking tracks and polishing them... Anneli has also had a small acting carreer in Norway. She played the lead in 'Sosken pa Guds jord' (Siblings on God's land) in 85 (?), had a small part in a film in 87 - 88, and had a leading role in Svarte Pantere (Black Panthers) in 92. The first two albums (and associated singles) was released under the name Bel Kanto in Norway of legal reasons. A norwegian choire already had the name Bel Canto. Bel Canto means 'beautiful song' in Italian... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LATEST INFO & RUMOURS - Bel Canto will start recording new material in the winter/spring 93, and the next album is planned for late autumn release. - Consolidated has remixed Shimmering Warm & Bright for a possible US release. - Biosphere will release a new album in the spring. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- UNRELEASED TRACKS Unreleased 1986 demo tracks include Flowerbeds, Seascape, What Then Once Said, Au Idea, Venus, Dressed For A Journey ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DISCOGRAPHY WHITE-OUT CONDITIONS LP 1987 Crammed Discs CRAM 057 BE CD 1987 Crammed Discs CRAMCD 057 BE CD 1988 Nettwerk/Crammed Discs W2-51 US/CA LP 1988 Crammed Discs/Tokuma 28CRL-3007 JA Blank Sheets / Dreaming Girl / Without You* / Capio / Agassiz / Kloeberdanz / White-Out Conditions / Baltic Ice-Breaker / Upland / Chadeinoi** * actually called Without Me, but a typo from Crammed renamed the track! ** extra track on CD re-issues.
