Malmberget Mixtape is a collection of music and soundscapes originally made for the documentary film Malmberget (The Home and The Cavity) by Per Bifrost and Alexander Rynéus.
All sounds heard are manipulated and arranged field recordings from and around Malmberget made during the recording of the documentary. Malmberget Mixtape containts sounds used in the film, but also sounds that was made for the film but never used.
The mixtape should not be seen as a documentary itself, but maybe instead as an abstraction and manipulation of places and situations in the documentary – but also an artistic and personal exploration of the sounds from field recordings.
Eventually the recording was released as a cassette on the cassette label Kronfonika, in an edition of 12 with artwork illustrated by artist Magnus Lenneskog.
