I’m setting up the new saw blade rig, because tomorrow at 20:00 we will be performing with our noise ensemble GGR Betong at ATALANTE in Gothenburg, as the official GEIGER houseband at our festival April-fest.
Last year I did some sound for a documentary by Kristina Meiton called SHIFT. A four part documentary about the lives of workplaces and individuals and their values and thoughts connected to their idea of work and their own relation to their jobs.
On the 14th of May GGR BETONG played at the wonderful Not Quite in Fengersfors, Dalsland.
We got to play in the most fitting setting possible for a noise ensemble. Their huge smithy. Myself was situated up on a ladder with my electric burl by the smithys fireplace. This evening we where at full force, with these people joining me at the front line:
Sven Rånlund, Michael Idelhall, Åsa Nordgren, Barrie James Sutcliffe, Peller Bolander, Linus Andersson, Tony Blomdahl and Tomas Hulenvik (conductor for the evening). Our original conductor Fredric Bergström could not join us and we missed him greatly.
Set list: Pauline Oliveros – Bottoms Up, Lasse Marhaug – The Great Silence, Zbigniew Karkowski – Below the Demarcation and Anna Eriksson – Three minutes and ten seconds.
On the same night The Space Lady also performed.
Very grateful for their effort and professional attitude, because of that the piece really did meet my expectations and fulfilled my hopes about what it could communicate in the sence of being a different way of relaying an idea of sound to a performer through a score.
In the evening I did my short, but hopefully sweet, noise gig at Club MORRICONE at Sockerbruket in Gothenburg. Such a wonderful and nice place. I recommend everyone to go and experience the musical and friendly atmosphere.

Yesterday me and my drummer Hampus Öhman Frölund had our debut gig at Half-Night Label night. Half-Night which is a newly started label in Gothenburg will be releasing our music in the fall.
As Hampus could not join me, being a New Yorker and family man, so he sent me a tape recording and I played live to it.
It was a great night with great people!
