Odex
Odex

In the mid 90’s I recorded an album with a solo project that I called Odex. The whole idea behind Odex was to make music the way I’d like to make music, not the way it’s supposed to be done. Some tracks from this album can be found online in a compilation album called “Odex, […]

Saintpid Mastering
Saintpid Mastering

  I’ve been mastering as an hobbyist and some occasional professional projects for about 20 years. I always enjoyed the challenge working with just the stereo track and decided somewhere around 2010 that I’d like to spend the rest of my days bringing the best out of mixes. I started by taking Ian Sheperd’s excellent Home Mastering Masterclass […]

VST Visuals

I have been experimenting with producing visuals with the VST standard. The idea is to incorporate a interactive visual performance with our existing live setup without the need for an extra computer or software and get rid of annoying latency due to slow audio drivers. I’ve been testing my ideas at the club ‘Konspirationen’, Norbergfestival […]

Memo Cassette’s first album was all about real time composition. The concept was to conduct music by verbal communication, both live and in the studio. Often […]

Visual music
Visual music

Visual music was initially my rebellion against the term music. I questioned why music necessarily has to consist of sound. Ever since I worked with the animations to Sol Andersson ‘I Am Not Here’ I had the idea that there where rhythms and melodies in the images I worked with, I heard the pictures. I […]

Techno
Techno

Techno has been a big part of my life since the early 90s. I used to laugh at the simplicity of a bass drum marking every 4th and occasionally stop for 4, 8 or 16 bars to come back, this time accompanied by a closed Hi-Hat marking every 8th in back beat. Yes, that is […]

Pulka Punks
Pulka Punks

I’ve been spending almost every day in a studio since 1985 and made a lot of tracks that for different reasons never went public. I’m trying to solve this by letting a bunch of old socks inherit those tracks and release them as their own. They call themselves Pulka Punks and they release anything that […]

VST plugins

Sometimes you need plugins or functionality that you can’t find anywhere, my solution was to develop my own tools. I choose to develop in the VST format to be able to use them in all environments I work in. Burt is a basic mono one oscillator synth that shapes the waveforms with bit crushing and  distortion.
