Good Moon Deer is the project of one Guðmundur Úlfarsson, a solo artist who makes a propulsive, glitchy, ever-evolving brand of improvised electronica. Live, and in his artwork and videos, the music is accompanied by slick visuals that hint at Guðmundur’s day job as one of the figures behind Icelandic design company Or Type, whose typefaces have been used in The New York Times and WIRE magazine.
Guðmundur applies a similarly crisp aesthetic to his sonic work, which is all about mechanical-sounding loops, neatly clipped samples and minimalistic sound collage. Pinning down his intentionally scattershot, ever-evolving sound in studio recordings has taken quite a while, but the debut album ‘Dot’ was worth the wait.
