Current work.

For some time I haven’t had the time to do any recording or composing, until my wife kindly asked for a song just for her, and I made this one:

All My Life (demo)

This, in turn, sparked a motivation for reviving an old album concept that I came up with in 2004, with the title “The Indescribable L”. In short it’s a declaration of love for my wife, in album form. Might sound clichéd or trite, but really isn’t. I’m soon finished with song number two, which is also the title track, and it alternates between 7/8 and 8/8 in the verses, so it’s not your regular pop song.

At the same time I’m still working on “Another Failure (1989)”, which is in continuation of the concept behind “Drawing Lines (1989)”, on which I rearranged and rerecorded songs I wrote as a 10 year old, in 1989. The second song on that one is a 9 minutes plus rollercoaster through genres, so that’s gonna be a pretty screwed up album too. Gotta love it.

I’m not sure which one of these albums will be finished first, but I’m hoping for “Another Failure (1989)” to be finished within the coming summer, and “The Indescribable L” within the year. If time permits.

That’s all for now, more news to come soon, and perhaps more songs as well.

Musical project for kids + release day.

The day before the official release of Drawing Lines (1989) I’m at home, spending the late evening burning 70 CD-Rs with music that my pupils have made. They’re aged 10-11 and we have been working for seven weeks, composing, recording, mixing and everything. There’s so much talent out there, that just needs to be discovered. That’s what I do (discover it), but I have no time to engage in anything beyond my work, my family and my own music. So I see all these talented kids, but can’t do anything else than to try to inspire them to dream big and become experts themselves.

Tomorrow is the big day for me. There’s nothing exciting happening, really, but I’ll probably try to send out a few messages and mails to friends and make the album available on my website. A digital release is not yet planned, but I’m trying to figure out a way to arrange it. Right now it seems that it will cost me more to create and release the album than I can dream of getting back. It’s worth it, though.
