BWLM 2017: Skryvla

With all the busy things over the holidays I forgot to post this to the blog. But on the 22 of december my second contribution to BWLM 2017 was released by Lamour Records.

BWLM 2017: Generative #001 (Edit - A2)

If you haven't checked out this years "Because we love music" from Lamour it's time to do so over at:

Today I got the honour of getting a song in there! This song started as an experiment in Ableton Live with midi-effects that creates random outcomes from a single note. The notes are then processed with threshold values stopping some and letting others pass through. The remaining notes are then harmonically transposed to confirm to a set scale. The randomness has then been edited to a degree that they no longer appear random. Other instruments has since then been added. It's free to download. Hope you like it!

Along with the release comes a drawing made by the talented Gustaf Lord during my show at Ambient Morning at this years PUSH! Festival.

Upcoming shows!

This week I am playing a early show on Thursday as a part of the PUSH festival 2017 in Gävle. My show is part of a series of shows this week called "Ambient Morning" taking place at Gävle Stadsbibliotek at 9 in the morning! More info over at: or check out the event on Facebook.

And in October I will have the honour to open for Lomaria at the release show for their new cassette "Världen är vår". Very much loooking forward to this event that will take place on October 27:th in Stockholm. Check out the event at Facebook.

Upcoming release: Mesopic

Some time during the beginning of this year I will put out my second cassette release on Stålverk Records. This time it is a eight track album featuring, in some way, more beat-based songs. The album will be called "Mesopic" and contains some pretty old stuff (pre "Amass") that has been in the work for a long time but never finished until now. It will be a 30 minutes long cassette and for maximum symmetry it will of course feature 15 minutes on either side.

The tracklist will be as follow:

A1 - Lodestone
A2 - Kuddas Molnberg
A3 - Sparks
A4 - Event Data
B1 - The Ninth Son of the Hurricane
B2 - John Frum
B3 - Eulogy
B4 - Gentle Doomsayer

I´m really looking forward to getting this out there and hopefully it won't be too many months until it can happen. Just some (1) finishing touches, and committing to these, some more (2) adjustment and committing once more and then, repeat step (1) and (2) and then on to tape duplication and digital distribution!
