A sad day.. Another of my heroes has died. 🙁 I first became aware of Ronnie James Dio’s incredible voice and interesting lyrics when Holy Diver became a hit in Sweden – this was back in the year of our lord 1983. I found out he had been the singer in Black Sabbath and Rainbow previously to his solo carrier. After a while I had bought all those albums as well. Inho, Black Sabbath’s Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules are two of the best heavy metal albums ever released.
It took me 2-3 days to get everything working again but now finally my computer runs Windows 7. Everything seems to work, even my old Yamaha DSP Factory sound card. I opened up a couple of tracks I’m working on and Cakewalk Sonar seems to work including, almost, all the plugins. Now I can concentrate on making music again.
This is the first trailer for the new adaptation of a Philip K Dick short story. Exciting stuff but we have to wait until September for the release.
I’ve been waiting for the right time to update from Windows XP. When my old hard drive started to act funny the other day I saw this as a acute reason to get a new one and install Windows 7 in the process.
Why hasn’t this been done earlier? Well, I guess it’s a combination of lazyness and the fact that everything was still working well on XP.
I have some older hardware, like the Yamaha DSP Factory sound card, that wasn’t supported in Vista. Thus the long wait.
Anyway… So yesterday I installed Windows 7, the 64 bit version.. bad mistake. Afterwards I found out that I could only use my older hardware, and their 32 bit drivers, on the 32 bit version of Windows 7. So now I have to reinstall Windows 7 again – 32 bit version this time. Oh happy happy. I just want to make music…
This is a pre-version to what later would be released as “The black hole in my heart”. Check it out.
I have added a new page to Fogelberg.com where you can download some of my music – free of charge. Check it out!
Check out this amazing animation short by Andreas Hykades which is currently competing in the 6th NFB Short film online competition.
This was totally unexpected but my trance track “Mind your matter” has been licenced by Korean company Andamiro. It will be used in the new dance arcade machine Pump it up pro 2.
Here’s a video where the track is played. Fast forward to 1.52 to hear it.
The promos are out which means my remix will soon be released on Avangardia (AVA024). If you haven’t heard it already I’ve included it below, together with links to the original and the Re Dupre remix.
I’m starting to believe in the iPad as a new tool for electronic musicians and DJs. The Korg Electribe app looks really nice, although it would be cheaper to buy a real Electribe than an iPad in Sweden. Still I think we will see many cool music apps for the iPad in the near future.
