MNEMOSYNE PRODUCTIONS was established in Norway 2003 by founders Heidi S. Tveitan/Starofash and Vegard Tveitan/Ihsahn as an extension to their work in the music industry. This label is mainly an outlet for their own musical collaborations. The founders have more than 10 years of experience as recording artists (Emperor, Ihsahn, Peccatum, Starofash and TSS), and have recorded and produced most of their recent work at their creative playground; SYMPHONIQUE STUDIO. At present, they are also working with selected tasks in film and web scoring.
IHSAHN comes from Notodden, Norway, where he at the age of 13 started playing in what developed into one of the world’s most influential black metal bands, EMPEROR. At only 17 he recorded and performed “In the Nightside Eclipse”, which has been many times over voted one of the top metal albums of all time. Since then, IHSAHN has divided his time between the metal and progressive/avant-garde worlds in projects like EMPEROR, IHSAHN, HOU SHALT SUFFER, PECCATUM and HARDINGROCK.
With IHSAHN’s ongoing solo project he has released five albums, and been playing festivals and stages around Europe, US, India and Japan. In addition to his work as a musician, he is together with partner Heidi S. Tveitan running Mnemosyne Productions and Mnemosyne Studios.
Behind the name STAROFASH is the Norwegian songwriter and producer Heidi Solberg Tveitan. Situated in the wonderful and dark woods of Telemark, she writes music, lyrics and captures moments on her camera. She is also a music producer and manager at Mnemosyne Productions.
Musically STAROFASH is dealing inside experimental pop/rock soundscapes, and over constantly changing sonic sceneries, the compelling melody is often the leading thread from beginning to end.
