Where Music Comes From

Last week was so busy that I didn’t manage to take the time and sit down to write a blog post. It was my first week back after much needed two weeks off. Apart from getting back into a fresh period of reading (particular highlights being Yuval Noah Harari’s “Sapiens” and Jonas Hassen Khemiri’s “Montecore”)… Continue reading Where Music Comes From

Radio Silence

It’s been more than three weeks since my last blog post and so much has happened. The past two weeks have mostly been spent working with this year’s instalment of Berwaldhallen’s annual Baltic Sea Festival. I have also wrapped up the power metal project as well as made great progress on a project I have… Continue reading Radio Silence

Visca la música!

What an exciting trip I had last weekend! My first (hopefully not my last!) concert as a substitute member of Ensemble Villancico was fantastic experience. Unadulterated delight from beginning to end, at least discounting the heat and humidity. I am fortunate enough to get to perform together with lovely and talented musicians on regular occasions.… Continue reading Visca la música!

To be frank, I am… Continue reading Pride and Joy

Masters of the House

Last week turned out quite different from what I had imagined. A not insignificant amount of time was spent applying the first coat of paint on new paneling for my house. Emma and I were invited to a wedding party on Saturday, but on Wednesday the remainder of our week was turned on its head… Continue reading Masters of the House

Christmas in June

Being a freelancer means, among other things, not necessarily taking vacations when most people do. Vacation time is whenever you decide it is, or at least when it is possible to take some time off. This summer will be a busy and strenuous one, not only with plenty of musical work but also a great… Continue reading Christmas in June
