New music – cover of Breakfast in America

So here’s a cover of Breakfast in America – I recorded, mixed and mastered this in one day. This is punk, completely alien to the original except its the same chords and words. I think its fun, I hope you like it.

My 5th album, Something’s Missing, is available everywhere!

My 5th full release, Something’s Missing, is now available on most streaming and purchase services. This has taken a little over a year mostly thanks to waiting for my yearly bonus to pay for the release. The music ranges pretty widely from classical to progressive rock to somewhat metal and even some sound collage work. […]

Stayin’ Alive – It’s not just for disco anymore

Stayin’ Alive – It’s not just for disco anymore

I’m a member of a group of musicians that are working to get better at mixing and mastering. And we’ve started doing some cover projects. I’m not big on doing covers – licensing is a mess and I’d rather spend time composing than dealing with legal stuff. The latest project is Stayin’ Alive by the […]

King Tut exhibit

King Tut exhibit

We visited the Los Angeles Science Center to see the King Tut exhibit. The exhibit was really nice – lighting made photography possible, and the texts were very informative. It was really crowded and it was possible to get close to all the objects I wanted to see. As usual I took a lot of […]

Palazzo Strozzi and heading home

As usual we got out late and headed to the Palazzo Strozzi. We had lunch at their cafe which we really liked (I had a burger, Aviva a salad – we needed a break from Italian food). Then we took in the show “Il Cinquecentro a Firenze” which highlighted artwork from the 1500s in Florence. […]
