The Periskop music work

Periskop is a solo music project by Danish electronic music producer Danny Kreutzfeldt. It was started in 2003 as one of many monikers used in the 00s by Danny Kreutzfeldt to release and perform different styles of electronic music. From dark ambient through deep industrial/dubby techno to experimental sound design, speedcore and harshnoise.

Most output of Danny Kreutzfeldt was produced in periods of hyperproductivity from 2001 to 2008 with the first production efforts dating back to early teenage-hood in the mid-90s. Contemporary Periskop releases are still predominantly based on remade or modified tracks from this body of work.

From 2002 until 2008 Danny Kreutzfeldt performed concerts extensively under various guises. In 2007 and 2008, numerous solo laptop performances were given as Periskop at various venues and festivals, which featured no interaction between laptop and performer, and obvious playback of sound files in Winamp.

Most projects and collaborations of Danny Kreutzfeldt were discontinued in 2008, leaving Periskop as the only semi-active solo project going forward. From 2007 to 2012 the Periskop project was in an experimental phase, where the Periskop website was turned into a platform for ongoing rule-based online releases.

A Beat Magazine interview from 2011 comments on this transition.

In early 2012 a deal was signed with Uhrlaut Records and work began on Periskop – 40, a forty album release on LP+USB with solo material by Danny Kreutzfeldt from 1999-2012. It was released by Uhrlaut Records and Periskop.cc in May 2013 and is the longest release in the history of Danish music. All +32 hours of music was also offered as a free 3.1GB mp3 download.

The LP album of Periskop – 40 features vocal contributions from Sofie Nielsen of Tone and Emil Brahe of SOL as well as orchestral work by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra.

In July 2015 Kabalion Records released Periskop – Immerse on 3xLP, CD and digital. A full-length with deep pulsating dark ambient originally from 2000-2008 but remodeled to fit the various formats and with remastered sound.

In August and October 2016, Kabalion released two four-track EPs on vinyl/digital:
Periskop – North with deep dark ambient techno originally from 2004-2008 with remakes in 2015 and remastered sound.
Periskop – Thrust with deep and gritty pounding techno originally from 2006 but altered for this release and with remastered sound.

At the moment Periskop is not an active live act, but Danny Kreutzfeldt is performing as DJ from time to time under his own name or as Periskop. He is also currently affiliated with the Danish doom metal band SOL.
