Emotion Vertigo

Bora York

We awake in the silence

The four and half years of writing the album Emotion Vertigo were far from a smooth process for us. I was in a seemingly endless creative funk, and considered the idea of calling it quits on the project entirely. There was a turning point when I stepped back and realized I had let worries and insecurities of what Bora York “should or shouldn’t look like” take priority.

This process of ups and downs led to the creation of a collection of songs spanning an entire spectrum of emotion, thus giving the album title, Emotion Vertigo, its place. It was a passionate step back to what it’s all about - the music.

Minneapolis, Minnesota
"Elska" means love. "Von" means hope. Love and hope. A dream of conveying these two things through sound, and a passion for music is what led to the birth of Elskavon, the instrumental project of Minneapolis-based composer and producer Chris Bartels, who also writes music as Blurstem, and with his wife Rebekah as Bora York.

Early ambient sketches were crafted as early as 2007, often created in his bedroom on late nights. But it was not until the early fall of 2012 that the project became a focused reality. Bartels was in the midst of his final semester of music college, and in between classes, ended up writing and recording a full length album in the matter of a few weeks. It was a passionate pursuit that drove the inception of Elskavon’s debut Movements In Season.

Containing three less songs than Movements In Season yet nearly the same length as a whole, Elskavon's second album Release, exercises a bit more open space, minimalism, and droning techniques.

2014’s Reveal came a year later. It is the first Elskavon album that introduces drums and percussion, and touches on a more ethereal post-rock style, while still behind an ambient wash.

After three years since the last album, Skylight, Bartels' 4th LP, was released in January of 2018, garnering positive reviews from around the ambient and modern classical community.
