I’ve been renting a small room for a while now where I keep my drums, mostly for practicing, but I also find it really inspiring to experiment with recording. Even though the room is far away from ideal for the purpose and doesn’t sound good at all the challenge still keeps it interesting. The drums are cheap and the room still needs a lot of treatment but you work with what you’ve got.
So recently I wrote and recorded a new song to which I recorded the drums there and the rest – bass, acoustic and electric guitar – in my apartment.

Hope you enjoy it!

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:

Celestial Decay – QuantumX

I’ve recently been working as mixing-engineer and co-producer on the new album “QuantumX” by Swedish symphonic metal-band Celestial Decay, and as the album is pretty much done a teaser-video has been released on YouTube, with a cover of a pretty well-known old classic; Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart”. I’m really satisfied with the results and the album will be released on The Music Alliance later this year. I think we are all really excited for the release.

If you watch until the end there is also a medley of the other songs from the album.

“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:

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!
