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 […]

Inspired by intoxication

You know that thin line between perfectly buzzed and drunk? The line that is rare and rather difficult to balance on? Thanks to cheap whiskey and ginger ale I managed to stand right on it while I was playing at Uppsala Konsert & Kongress as Reversed Obesity in 2009. Thanks to the alcohol I wasn’t […]

Finding friends through remixes

Some time in 2007 I as usual went into a local music store and headed straight for their “demo shelf”. It was more or less a daily routine for me, always hoping to find a new demo by a local group/artist. And that very day I found something special, namely Geld‘s first and only demo; […]

Different approaches to noise

You’re your own worst critic, or you should be, and back in 2006 when I first started out making horrible (in a bad way) noise, I wasn’t. I uploaded everything I did, and rarely looked back at what I did. In way it was a good thing, but generally I’d say that it was a […]

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 […]

Summarizing 2010

The year is about to end so why not do like last year; summarize what has happened. One album, six EP’s, one split, one compilation, one gig and of course a brand new label. A lot less than last year, but still a productive year. It all started in January with the digital release of […]

Woah, a post with stuff in it.

I know, I know. I haven’t updated this for over a month. There’s really no good reason, except that I’ve been lazy. But isn’t that a good enough reason? No? Fine. In the middle of September I played at Uppsala Konsert & Kongress; it went very well. Except for an odd sound that I assume […]

Maybe I was wrong

As I’ve previously mentioned, HÃ¥kan Lidbo was commissioned to create a vuvuzela track by Swedish Radio. And I thought it would sound like generic electronica, but it actually doesn’t. That said, I personally don’t think the track itself is exciting. It’s rather bland and it could’ve been any track if it weren’t for the new-found […]

Artwork, tattoo and cable.

First things first, earlier today I dropped off the YOTD artwork at the printer’s, I’ll be getting it on Friday, so YOTD should be out early next week. I also went by my favorite tattoo studio with some 20 pictures on a USB memory, and he thought they looked like fun. So in the end […]
