Different process

During a recent talk with my friend David, also known as IOK-1, he mentioned that he has around 150 plays a week on his SoundCloud. I don’t know how many I have, but it’s far from that much. Then again, I don’t really post much stuff other than experiments and excerpts. Partly it’s because I […]

A new toy

A few days ago I bought a used Roland SPD-6. I’m mainly gonna use it for triggering sounds, but for the time being I don’t have the cable I need. So here’s some random play on it.

Music From Escalators, update 1: Editing the sources.

As mentioned in the first post about the project, the total length of the sounds is 2:51 hours. But that included a bunch of unwanted sounds. Now, after some heavy editing, the total length is down to 2:07 hours. Below you can hear an example of the unwanted sound, and also a brief sample of […]

Music From Escalators, an introduction.

Armed with my Edirol R-09 and two JrF contact mics I spent 2011 recording all of Uppsala’s public escalators. I ended up with 29 files with a size of 1,68 GB, and a total of 2:51 hours, but that also includes sounds that came from handling the mics and walking from escalator to escalator. During […]

Summarizing 2011

Another year, and another time to summarize what I’ve done, just like I did in 2009 and 2010. One album, five EP’s and one gig. So compared to the past two years I haven’t been that creative. Or well, I haven’t released as much. The first release was the recording of my gig in Gävle, […]

On the cover

A short while ago I was contacted by a journalist from Upsala Nya Tidning, they were going to ask a bunch of local music acts about their favorite covers. And they wanted me to participate. My list is as follows: Marilyn Manson – Sweet dreams (are made of this) (Eurythmics) Frida Snell – Bullet with […]

Poster boy

Long time, no post. Well, here’s some news. On November 8th I’ll be curating (read: organizing) Brus. I’ve hooked up the acts, and on Monday I’ll have a meeting with a guy about stuff I need to know/fix. And here’s the poster I made for the evening. It took me about two hours, while watching […]

Walk and walk and walk

Another day, another recording session. Took the bus to IKEA, recorded their three escalators, then onward to Bolandcity where they had removed the escalator I saw some months ago and really wanted to record. They did have a new escalator but it wasn’t making too many interesting sounds, still – it needed to be recorded. […]

It keeps on escalating

It was time for another escalator recording session so I went to Gränby köpcentrum. There were more escalators than I remembered, but then again, I haven’t been there for over a year. I don’t really have much to tell, because everything went fine. Except for a H&M person telling me I had to ask their […]
