Burntsystems was created in 1995 to answer the call of the “burnt” feeling trying to satisfy the “system” or tirelessly trying to conform to an ever changing pop culture. Born Heidelberg West Germany to a Norwegian Mother and his father an Army Chopper pilot from Bronx NYC brought the turn of the century European techno industrial, his sister’s disco back in the late 70’s and that sampler from Radio shack got on layaway when he was a young American at just 11 years old together to present day. (Thanks to his Dad who rocked out every night on an acoustic guitar-singing Nitty Gritty, classic 50’s bands and his own Rockabilly originals) A Norwegian uncle playing piano and singing his head off in every summer from ages 1-10. Candlelit reel to reel listening of his quite famous Grandfathers Norwegian Opera. His Mom’s choir practice live from ages 0-33. Christian V was destined to become a singer/songwriter.

You name it. Midi programming & sampling began while stationed in Bavaria under the careful tutelage of Bob Bozak (A music Theory professor in the same Army unit) under band name “Burnt Republic” taught to sequence the difficult lead synthesizer lines, so Christian could concentrate on the singing, lyrical placement and grooving with the lead guitarist. Multi track recording and mastering via cassette and eventually ADAT, then on his own utilizing many of the past and current DAW’s both MAC & PC. The drums; when the session drummer would not show. Bass, when the bass player exited the service and then on his own for over a decade upon completion of his Army term. Whereupon, Christian V.
