Emmy Award nomination!

It's with great excitement and joy that I can announce that me and my colleagues have been nominated for an Emmy Award 2017 for the sound work we've done on the LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures TV-series! 

The first season has been broadcasted worldwide on DisneyXD during the past few months, and the series has been nominated in 4 categories in total. We've been working very hard and know that people on all levels in this big project has done the same - script writers, producers, animators etc... Big thanks to WilFilm, Lucasfilm and LEGO - it's truly a pleasure working with designing sound worlds and creating foley to complement high quality animation work of this kind, and me and my colleagues are very excited to be on the forefront of what we love doing.

INFO & PREVIEWS: 'Vesterhavet (Extended)' and 'Kaskelot: Reissue + Remixes'

I'm happy to once and for all officially confirm that both these albums will get released on January 31st, 2017 on Home Normal (CD+digital). For those of you who hasn't followed me throughout the years, I can tell you it's been a long ride back and forth for both albums and I'm very excited to finally be able to properly share them with you all.

The original release of 'Kaskelot' sold out back in 2011 and has been long out of print. Now it's been remastered and comes with 7 beautiful and unique remixes made by Jordan Sauer (Segue), Steve Pacheco, Simon Bainton, Porya Hatami, Chihei Hatakeyama, Jason Corder (offthesky) and Chris Herbert.

After self-releasing 'Vesterhavet' almost a year ago, I doubted the fact that it would get a physical release at all. However, for this new and extended version, I decided to remaster it and added a new track (Vesterhavet 6), and the digital version comes with an additional track - a beautiful remix by Warmth (who runs the excellent Archives label).

This is all happening because of Ian Hawgood, a patient man who has been such an amazing supporter of my work since day one. I'm very grateful that he continuously offers to release my music on his wonderful label. And in a sense, it now feels like these two releases has finally ended up where they should be.

For those of you who already bought the original version of 'Vesterhavet' from my Bandcamp, I will try to fix so that you get the new digital version for free. Expect an email during January.

'5 am' - Limited edition 3" CDr

'5 am' is now available now in the store.

"This piece is based on a field recording I made at dawn in the garden of the house where I grew up. My parents still live there, and once in a while when I go back I'm reminded of my teenage years and how I sometimes, after coming home from friends or parties at 5 or 6 in the morning, used to lay down in the grass just drifting off - reflecting, contemplating, listening to the emptiness, the distant freeway, the wind and the birds, before falling asleep. Those moments really stuck with me. 

After being asked to participate in the Tiny Portrait series, I decided to have a go at recreating, or interpreting that state of mind sonically the way I remember it, making this one of my most personal audio compositions to date."
