I wanna spread the word about a really exciting project my friends over at Sagen Interactive in Sweden are working on, that will need YOUR help in order to become reality. Their idea is to create a platform for distributing digital art, such as games, music, film and cartoons, but unlike any other similar platforms the content is free for everybody to use. What people who wish to show their support can pay for is upcoming content, so instead of paying for things that are already made you can help financing exiting new content, which then will be free for consumtion. Awesome, isn’t it?
Now, this is just in short the general idea of what it’s all about, and you will find out lots more by checking out their presentation on Indiegogo, but in order to get this project done they will need financing through crowd-finding. So head over to Indiegogo and check out their presentation videos, and other information. If you wish to donate, it will be an amout of your own choosing, but keep in mind: this is for a very good cause. Let’s set art free, and instead of giving our money to big bad corporation dudes in fancy suits who will only punish you with more insane DRM’s we can make sure that in the future a reasonable salary can be given directly to the artists who create the art and make sure that the money you spend on digital art is money well spent.
I’m really happy to announce that finnish prog-rockers Porcelain Moon (a band I was previously a part of), have finally released the new EP “Swan Song”. The album contains four songs (a total of about 27 minutes) in, what I would call, a pretty classic but freshly interpreted progressive rock-style. The recordings goes back to a time when I was still playing in the band, so you will also hear my guitar-wailing on the album. I also took care of the mixing, co-writing and co-producing.
The Beatles has been a big part of my life for many years. I just love their sound, and the songs are fantastic. One day a while ago it just hit me, like a lightning bolt, how I probably would have produced “Lucy in the sky with diamonds” if I had written it. The sounds were all clear in my head, and this is what ended up in my recordings a few weeks later. Needless to say, I’m not trying to improve the song in anyway. The original Lucy in the sky with diamonds is a wonderful production, and this is just another interpretation.
I got some help by Robin Carlheim-Müller on the vocals and percussion, and Rickard Åsén on the drums. A big thank’s to you guys!
The following post regarding a survey-study for my university degree only conciders those who speaks or understand swedish, so I’m going to switch language now.
Hej alla. Jag håller på med mitt examensarbete på Högskolan Dalarna, och gör en undersökning om människors förhållande till musik, och hur man använder musiken i vardagliga sammanhang. Studien baserar sig på teorier och tidigare studier om hur människor reagerar på musik, både mentalt och fysiologiskt, och som grund använder jag mig av en enkätundersökning.
Därför vill jag be alla er att svara på min enkät som man kan hitta på adressen: https://survey.enalyzer.com/?pid=rpb7nas7
Det tar bara ett några minuter, och den är till för alla oberoende av bakgrund och ålder. Dela gärna med er av länken, jag vill försöka få in så många svar som möjligt.
I just finished my latest song “Hold on strong”, which is another of those home demo recordings I’m working on. Since I love orchestral sounds, I wanted to make a rock song with orchestral arrangements, and this is it.
I recorded the drums in my university’s studio, and thank’s to Robin Carlheim-Müller for the engineering. The rest is done in my apartment, which I think works pretty well despite the circumstances. It’s all about learning to work with what you have. Of course, since I don’t have access to a real string and brass orchestra, I’ve used sampled sounds on this one. Needless to say, it’s one of my biggest dreams to one day be able to work with a real orchestra. Maybe I’ll get there someday.
