Eternal Words is the debut album from Tomas Nordmark, an experimental Swedish composer, sound artist, and designer living and working in London.

Nordmark was educated at the University of Linko?ping in Sweden where he studied Audio Culture and Contemporary Art.

His compositions and works have been featured in short films, theatre plays and in exhibitions.

The slow and evolving phase-shifting compositions on "Eternal Words" are based on the same principle used by the American minimalists (specifically Terry Riley and Steve Reich), while the melodic textures are based on ancient Scandinavian music and sacred hymns - a tonality far from the downtown NYC avant garde.

With this juxtaposition "Eternal Words" builds a forward-looking electronic soundscape, escaping the repetitive loop of contemporary time without imposing any specific stylistic dogma.
