Depicted In Glass

The other day I recorded a wine glass, you know the tone you get from rubbing the edge of a the glass. It sounded cool so I tried throwing some effects on it and auto-tuning it to different notes. I then loaded the different notes in to a sampler and just like that I had a new weird sounding instrument with two full octaves. Oh, the magic of computer technology.
Anyway, my new wine-glass instrument gave me inspiration for a new song, so here it is:

Thank’s to Mats Ödahl for playing the double bass for me. The rest is performed by my-self.

Hope you enjoy!

Hipster Slayer – In Space (live @ Fäboda)

Indie-rock band Hipster Slayer recently recorded a live video of their song “In space” out by the beautiful Finnish archipelago at Fäboda in Jakobstad, to which I did the audio recording. It’s a really great band with a wonderful song worth checking out, and I’m really impressed with the filming and video editing. Have a look:

“Swan Song” – New EP by Porcelain Moon

Porcelain Moon EP “Swan Song” (2013)

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.

You can order the album from Univocal Music’s webshop:

The webshop only handles orders within Finland but if you want to order outside of Finland, just send an e-mail to niklas@univocalmusic.com.

Here are some samples from the EP:

Lucy in the sky with diamonds

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!
