Recently I was attending Web Visions in Barcelona – for some inspiration and a heads up with what is happening in web design, UX, tech etc. One of the speakers was Matt Haughey (Slack) who gave some good advice on how to keep up with your side projects. His tip was to keep a regimen and do something once a day. It doesn’t have to take that long and it doesn’t have to be great. So here is my version of that. I will try to breathe some life into my blog again by posting stuff at least once a day, starting today. I will write about my music process, design, tech and other things I think is fun and important. Just short posts and not too advanced. If somebody is interested I might even fire up the comments field again. Had to close it down a while ago since it was only accumulating spam.
Check out this little techno track I just recorded from my modular synthesizer. It’s a work in progress obviously.
Some stuff have been added to my studio and some has been sold. I’ve added more things to my modular and I recently got a great tape delay emulator called Strymon El Capistan. Check out the updated list on my studio page.
Time is a precious commodity. When you spend too much of it procrastinating on social media, instead of creating music and other stuff, you just have to do something about it. I’ve already ended my place at Ello and will end my Twitter account in a day or two. If I could I would end Facebook as well, but you know how it is.. They got us all by the balls..
Nowadays I’m really into making sounds and music on my modular synthesizer. This is a track I put together live in just three hours. It’s called Abyss and it’s pretty dark, with an organic feel to it. Actually it’s my first ambient tune in many, many years. Check it out and don’t forget to tell all your friends about it. 😉
Of course I’m also on Facebook, Twitter and so forth. Here’s a little list of the most common sites I’m active on:
Yes I have a page on Bandcamp. There’s not much there yet except my latest official EP releases Rework 1 and 2. Check it out and buy my music if like like to support me. I will hopefully add some more releases there in the future.
Some techno I put together with my modular. Enjoy!
I noticed I haven’t written much here for the last couple of months so here is a little update about whats going on with my music. Well, first of all it seems that I am really doing a third full length album. So far I have five finished songs for it and seeds for 2-3 more.
I don’t have any record deal but all those things are kind of in the future, as I don’t know when I will have finished enough tracks to call it a full lengther. If I don’t get a deal with a really good company I will probably just release it myself and sell it on my Bandcamp page et cetera. Yes I have a Bandcamp page now, but I’m not really doing much to promote it or the rest of my music. That’s something I actually should be better at again.
The studio is in a constant flux. Sometimes new things are brought in, while older are sold off. Here is a recent picture of me, sitting where I feel the most comfortable. In the center of the studio.
