And here's number three. To get some interesting movement in the slow intro was the big challenge here. I¨m not used to writing slow stuff.Continue

And here's the second movement. The movements of this quartet are much more connected than in my previous quartets. But that will not be noticed until the third movement. Continue

"I like it, but the high strings seem to get lost in this recording. Is this a rendering from notation software or a DAW? There has to be a way to bring out the violins. Or maybe you're a cellist and biased! ;D"

Hi Lennart,

thank you for listening to my music and for your kind words. I'm glad you like what I do. I've been told I remind people of David Sylvian before but I've never heard him. I should check him out. I'm really enjoying your music at the moment. Really unique and captivating. Keep up the great work! :)

Take care,

Hi Lennart, thanks for your kind feedback. I like your music too!

Hey Lennart,


I appreciate your comments.  Walking Nights and Christ He Loves You are some of my favorite of yours.  I think you would find much inspiration from Michael Talbot.  Celestial Ballet was written to describe the majestic nature of the world we live on and the insignificance of us compared to the One who created.  Many blessings and continued growth in your writing.

Hi Lennart,

Thank you for the nice comment!  Regarding how I learned arranging, I wish I had a good answer.  I don't even know if I "know" arranging, but I'm glad somebody out there thinks so.  :)  But honestly, I really don't know how to answer that question.  I did study a bit of theory, but for the most part I guess I compose by "feel", for better or for worse.  Like everyone here, I'm sure, I've listened to a lot of music, so that has certainly helped internalize a lot of common musical concepts.  I do wish I could study more about music theory, arranging, and orchestration, but there never seems to be enough time.  But I try to learn where I can.

I've listened to your music and it sounds quite good.  So for what it's worth, I think your hard work is paying off.

Welcome to the forum!

Thank you Lennart. Yes the EP Think Again and the single Petwhac is available on iTunes, here's the link-

We are in the process of recording new tracks which may be added at a later date.

Good luck to you.

Thanks man! :) I loved "Pigs of the farm" and "Walking Nights"! The latter was very soothing indeed. The former was awesome! :D It sounded like one of the happier Blackmores Night songs! :) Kudos!

A logical step

Posted on January 2, 2012 at 11:00am 0 Comments

I have moved from Grageband to Logic Pro 9 and I expect it to make a huge impact on my music. Now I have really professional equipment and NO EXCUSES! Right now I'm in the process of programming my own sounds on all the great synths. I will then remaster some old stuff and start working on new songs. I'm having fun! I'll be back as soon as I have something to show : )

Two new songs

Posted on November 10, 2011 at 5:41pm 0 Comments

I've added two new songs in my player. A piece for harpsichord and trumpet, called "Fly by Faith" and a piece for a bouncy of synths and a oboe, called "The Warmth of Your Smile". Go check them out!

What is your favorite genre or style of music?
Baroque and classical. Mainly Mozart and Jean Phillipe Ramaeu

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I started out writing electronic songs, in the eighties, and have later moved into orchestral stuff. Today I work with Sibelius and Logic Pro X. I also use a variety of iPad apps. Melody is central in my compositions. For me breaking with the old school is not about writing avant-garde stuff, but about using a modern tone language with old school techniques. And with modern tone language I mean mixing in rock, pop and folk music influences.
