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!

“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:

New song: Hold on strong

I just finished my latest song “Hold on strong”, which is another of those home demo recordings I’m working on. Since I love orchestral sounds, I wanted to make a rock song with orchestral arrangements, and this is it.

I recorded the drums in my university’s studio, and thank’s to Robin Carlheim-Müller for the engineering. The rest is done in my apartment, which I think works pretty well despite the circumstances. It’s all about learning to work with what you have. Of course, since I don’t have access to a real string and brass orchestra, I’ve used sampled sounds on this one. Needless to say, it’s one of my biggest dreams to one day be able to work with a real orchestra. Maybe I’ll get there someday.
Cheers!
