2004 celebrates the 20th anniversary of vidnaObmana. These past 20 years signified vidnaObmana as one of the most wilful independent exprimental artists around. He recorded more than 35 CD albums, whether solo or in collaboration, of music that explored the abrasive side of electronic composition, the freeform landscapes of the isolationist ambient aesthetic, the structured interactivity of Fourth World soundscapes, international music traditions and post-classical experimentations. VidnaObmana's anthology 1984 - 2004 release marks this celebration and covers vidna's oeuvre from 1984 up till 2004. For the first ever, this anthology links vidnaObmana's most succesful ambient period with his most obscure earlier phase. A period in his career that vidnaObmana refused to recognize up till a year ago when he realized that his experimental and noise phase created the foundation for what he has produced up till now. 12 selections which range in style from ambient music in the vein of River of Appearance and his ambient Trilogy to harsh noise electronics from the early 80's. An unique and provocative document confirming vidnaObmana's essential position in the field of electronic and modern experimental music. This CD, the first in a series of anthologies also stands for the birth of vidnaObmana's own label Ikon (This first release is in alliance with Projekt). The circle is complete and a new path lies ahead.
