What they say

They say silence is golden; John Cage claimed that silence doesn’t exist; Vader sang “the absence of noise does not mean silence”. Either way; I’ve been rather silent with regards to my music, even though plans have come and gone. Something went missing, something I can’t put my finger on. I have plenty of time […]

Will the music return?

It’s been a while since I posted something here, and even longer since I made any music. I’ve been thinking about my lack of music making quite a lot in the past few weeks, and I think I’ve realized what’s wrong… I’m unable to make the music I want to make because I don’t know […]

Summarizing 2012

It’s the last day of 2012 so I might as well look back and see what I’ve done through the year, just like I did in 2009, 2010 and 2011. One album, one compilation, three EP’s, one split and two gigs. One project sent to the grave, and another born. It was a very idle […]

Jumping on the 12-12-12 bandwagon

At first I thought of doing some very silly ideas for 12-12-12 but eventually decided against it. Instead I would write about and explain my silly ideas, but no matter how many times I rewrote the text it always ended up sounding way too pretentious. Finally I decided to make a 12-second track just for […]

The real 50 Shades of Grey

I just made this. Relevant: Jasper Fforde.

Introducing Dust

Not too long ago I started another project; its name is Dust, and because of its slow production process there won’t be many frequent updates. At the moment it’s at its second step and that will take at least three to four weeks, the third step will most likely take about half of that. The […]

I feel like I could…

Take on the world! It should come as no surprise that I’m a big fan of Day of the Tentacle. So it really made my day when the girl from UPS called and said that she had a package for me. The beauty above is what came in the package, and I’ve been waiting for […]

One of fifty

I recently got the killerpack of Bong-Ra‘s album Monolith. Click each image for a bigger version. The vinyl, or should I say vinyls. Sadly, they had been abused by the postal service. Inside the gatefold case was a poster. A toetag with some information on, including my name missing the J in Hjort. The toetag […]

Introducing Pipe Monotron Sessions

As of last week I have a new side/jam project, its title is Pipe Monotron Sessions. And the title says what it is, me smoking my pipe and playing with (one of) my Monotron (Delays). For the first session I used a pair of really old PC speakers to hear what I was playing, but […]

Live in May

I’ll be using the new love of my life; Korg Monotron Delay.
