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 […]

The real 50 Shades of Grey

I just made this. Relevant: Jasper Fforde.

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]
