GGR BETONG @ Not Quite

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.





What a weekend

On the 7th of May MIMTABU played my tactile score ITAPÅNE at Cinnober in Gothenburg.

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.

Unconcious archives @ SLG

This week I went to London to play a show at the South London Gallery organized by Unconscious Archives  (Sally Golding).

Together with the excellent sonic performers Jean-François Laporte and Billy Roisz.

A great big thanks to all involved making it such a great evening in the name of noise.

This past weekend  GEIGER and SVAVEL co-produced SVAVELs noisefest RÖSET in the woods of Småland in Sweden.

I had the luxury to play twice during this weekend.

On Friday with my own project and on Saturday in the noise-orchestra GGR Betong.

Below is the sound from my gig:

Torpåkra Ljudstation


Once again asked back to Torpåkra Ljudstation to play. Last time I was there with the Vril as a work in progress (which granted it will probably always be) but this year I came back with “big sister” to do it properly.

New Vril and new gig coming up

On Saturday the 29/3 I will be playing at the release concert of Henrik Rylanders new album “Object Subject to Change”

New burlcore material to be premiered on this night.
