Lot's of nice things

Read more...Lot's of nice things are happening at the moment! Today I received the notification that I have been granted a free stay at San Cataldo, in December. I have been there once before, 8 years ago; and it is the most inspiring and beautiful place to work and compose music. I am really looking forward to going again, this time to work on musc for Norbotten Big Band! :)

Announcing new Berlin-based group

Read more...

So I am starting out 2015 being pretty excited about a new group of mine. Yet to be named with a decent name! - it is a Berlin based chordless quartet, with the following fantastic musicians: Silke Eberhard on alto sax, Geoffroy de Masure on trombone, Roland Schneider on drums and myself. I am really enjoying writing music for this group and working it out with the band, and without making too many promises I think we will be recording and playing out live very soon. So stay tuned!! :)
