Disrupted Being is a Danish synthpop band, based in Copenhagen.
The members are Morten Kristensen (at the right) and Peter Wammen (at the left). They met back in 1988 in the local train, sitting opposite each other. Suddenly, Morten spotted a Depeche Mode badge on Peter’s coat. That got the talking started, and soon they became friends due to the shared love of New Wave and synthpop music, and the fact that both had recently acquired synths.
They have a deep love for both new and vintage analogue synths, but they also embrace all other sound-generating devices (electronic or not). Many fans of 80’s synth music will recognize inspiration in their music from both Jean Michel Jarre, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Kraftwerk, Simple Minds and Ultravox. In fact, one of Morten’s newly acquired synths is the ARP Odyssey, also known as a favorite of Ultravox’s Billy Currie.
Peter’s and Morten’s music project has been ongoing since they met, but life happens, and they have been doing a lot of different things privately and professionally that somehow blocked or stalled their musical ambitions.
However, Morten played in another Danish synthpop band called deZeption and has an ongoing, yet quiet at the moment joint-venture project called Globe World Receiver with Jesper Siberg from pioneering Danish-based synth band Scatterbrain. Morten actually played alongside the remaining members of Scatterbrain in the Tribute 2012 concert in central Copenhagen.
Now, Peter and Morten are back for real – as Disrupted Being. Reunited, revitalized and reborn. Their desire is to feed your mind and move your feet with a blend of old school synth and new romantic synth-based music with a contemporary feel and an undefinable, undeniable Disrupted Being twist.
