I have now also finished the Music Composition for Film and TV 1 and 2 courses. It was challenging and interesting and it really made me write some very different music from what I usually write…

We are now having the final recording sessions for my upcoming CD “Zen Guitar Songs”. We recorded a few pieces yesterday and today we are going to continue – the musicians are: me and Tom Forsman – guitars, Stefan “Kilju” Lindblom – bass and Stefan Brokvist – drums. It feels and sounds good and maybe this time I will really go out of songs ( that belong to this album, that is)? :-)

We are now planning two more studio sessions for my upcoming album “Zen Guitar Songs”. I have written a few more songs and I would like to include some of them in the album – the new songs are called “Innocent Mental Mood”, “Summer Pursuits”, “Blue Tango”, “Full Moon Celebration” and “Without Words”…

I just love the “Jazz Composition” course! It is a great idea to have to write a new song every week for 12 weeks – it might even become a ( bad) habit… :-D

I am now going to play material from my upcoming album “Zen Guitar Songs” live. You can hear this material on my gigs at Dux April 10, Glassbarshuset June 15, Music & Dance Festival July 26 and Picnic Jazz in Kaskinen July 27. In the band will be me and Tom Forsman – guitars, Kenneth Nordman or Stefan “Kilju” Lindblom – bass, Oskar Nilsson or Daniel Hjerppe – drums. It is going to be something special – spiritual and spectacular – do not miss it!

The songs for my upcoming album “Zen Guitar Songs” are now being mixed. I would like to have one more recording session, because I have a new song that belongs on the album. Otherwise, hopefully the album will be finished in a few weeks – stay tuned!

Tomorrow me and Minna are going to go to the summer cottage for a few days. It is going to be really nice to take a few days off – we have been working a bit too hard lately, as usual…
