So before tracks get taken into nice studios with amazing musicians, input from producers/arrangers/and anyone else they have to start somewhere. Here are my original bedroom demos of some songs from Hi-C and the new album for a bit of fun
A few tracks from the new unreleased album! Recorded in Norway with some exciting help from HP Gundersen, Mette Mathiesen (drummer for Jeff Lynne of ELO fame), Jonas Lei Theis, Jonas Raabe, and Jeron Gundersen.
Your bio references your peripatetic pursuits....(just a Google away)....LAX, Berlin, maybe in transit over a canvas-topped flat-bed truck laden with frozen cod, headed for a Whaler parked at a Norwegian fyord, perched for a crossing to the Lofoten, Islands....I just have no idea what you're calling home plate now. I am impressed by yer impressions.
Your music, finely crafted. your work shows a fusion of analogue and synthetic sources. I heartily approve of your decisions, and hope this finds you with much wind in your sails, wherever you are.
Light Perpetual fall upon you!

Happy New Year from Catalina Island at the Avalon Casino (complete with live big band and swing dancers on the ball room and a ton of balloons dropped on the head at midnight).
An image I was able to pick up along with the story of where it came from. In 1975 my Mother bought a Calendar by Milton Glasser of images he created in honor of his friend Herman Hesse. She framed a few of the images, this one above I inherited. Happily this will go on the wall in my new flat in Oslo, along with the original 1975 calendar that I found.
There are large chimes here and a fire pit to sit around in the evenings while sipping wine and listening to the beautiful music they make. A very relaxing place.
If you recognize this location then you are one of the few humans on this earth to have had the good fortune to visit such a magical place.
A Rubiks cube! This is my favorite kind of puzzle, I love it, I adore it, and all of it's brothers and cousins. There are lots of different types of puzzles, in fact if you look in wikipedia there are roughly 17 classifications but Rubiks has it's own category.
There is something very satisfying to me about a rubiks
cube and other off shoots of twisty puzzles like the Pyraminx,
And my all time favorite: the square one (pictured above).
Each of these puzzles vary in difficulty and number of algorithms to solve. What they all have in common though is a set of principles and sets of rules that must be
identified to solve them.
Other puzzles, for me, are slightly
less satisfying. Puzzles like Disentanglement Puzzles, or Interlocking puzzles just don't seem to do it for me. I suppose it's because the process is far more straight forward, putting pieces together in the right order or tilting angles at the right time and pulling or just fidgeting about. I still enjoy them very much but I feel a totally different part of my brain being used (or teased) when I work on twisty puzzles rather than these.
