A song that felt so right in our dark times that we decided to release it on the first day of the 21st Climate Conference. And so much has happened in the world since we started recording. Thousands of refugees meeting closed boarders. Whole families having to sleep outside and then having to walk yet another day only to be turned down by the next boarder. Terrorists trying to rule the world by fear. No wonder we feel angry, scared and distressed. This song is about holding on to your dreams and wishes no matter what. See through the fear and capture a glimpse of hope.
Spending a lot of time in front of the computer reading bloggs. I’ve never been a bloggreader. I truley enjoy the feeling of papper between my fingers, but now it’s time to start spreading the word of a new band and a new song. In one week my new duo Jean Dark is releasing our first single “I will never let me down”.
And I will probably start reading musicbloggs more often…I quite enjoy some of them.
I spent 5 days in a studio all by myself. Loving every second. Learning Logic by recording all the ideas that have been spinning through my mind for the last two years or more. Finally, I got them out of my system so now there will hopefully be room for new fresh songs.
I’m keeping my promise to bring the camera almost every time I go out. Yesterday I brought it on a family outing. There are so many interesting and odd, funny things going on around you if you pay attention. Like that spot in Rosendals Garden where everything seemed to be a part of the grey colour scale except for one man in a yellow coat and his picnic. I had a great time, but my son got really fed up with me and my camera.
So I dared myself to try streetphotography. My favourite genre in the art of photographing. There’s an excitment in catching a moment. But it takes time to find those special moments and you need to take a lot of photos before you suddenly find that interesting moment. Or you’re simply one of those who can make it look interesting by how you compose a picture in the moment. I haven’t looked up the rules about taking photos of strangers in the street so I started of with a self-portrait and a dog…
WORK is such a negative sound. Work it! Go to work. I can’t I’m working. And all the good things happen when the work is done. After work drinks. Holidays. You have to work to make a living! Do I? What if I want to live to make it work? The work should be a natural flow in your existence. Something you were meant to do. Because that’s when you also grow in your skills without any hard effort. The development will be continuos and you will be great.
So from now on I will be doing what I love and what makes me grow, Work or hobby. There is no division.
I recently picked up an old activity. Photographing. I had the opportunity to buy a good camera (I only have an old analogue) for a good price. So now I’m out in the streets having fun with it while I’m on mothers-leave. I’ll be posting my favourites here as well as news on my music.
