Alexander Rishaug aka RUDOW is a Norwegian soundartist, contemporary composer and techno-musician who operates in the borderlands between the art and music-scene. He is educated at the Art Academy in Trondheim, and is currently a PhD. Scholar at the Art Academy in Tromsø.
Alexander makes dark dub-techno inspired by vast landscapes, shut-down industrial facilities and brutalistic architecture. At Insomnia 2019 he will present a mixture of laid-back ambient, cold electronica and danceable tracks.
Rudows first album was released on the Berlin-based label Freakout Cult in 2017, a label run by DJ Fett Burger and Jayda G. In 2018 he released Lost Tape, a remix album, where his music was remixed by the legends of Norwegian club music like Mind over Midi, Ost & Kjex og Center of the Universe, and local Tromsø heroes like Mental Overdrive og Charlotte Bendiks.
Rishaug has a long track record as an electronic musician of the more explorative kind. His debut was released on Smalltown Supersound in 2002, a mainstay in Norwegian electronic music with artists like Lindstrøm, Bjørn Torske, Nene Cherry og Kim Hiorthøy. He has toured all over the world; Japan, USA, Europe and in Scandinavia.
