– My focus in life is the same as it has always has been: Trying new things.

In my early teens my art history teacher introduced me to the ideal of the uomo universale. At that point, it felt like I had found my calling. Or, it had found me. Since the ideal is impossible to achive, I’m always motivated to go futher.

My curiousity has led to a variety of experiences. I’ve made award winning animated short films, toured the world as a musician and worked with art mediation for a variety of institutions.

Since 2019 my professional focus has been writing. I currently hold a position as writer and critic for KUNST, the leading Nordic art magazine. I also serve as beehype’s Norwegian correspondante and as a board member for Paragone. I occationally do freelance work for publications such as GAFFA and Ballade.

Interview with Klaus Mäkelä

It was by coincident that I first came to meet Klaus Mäkelä. The conversation moved smoothly when we met on a plane from Helsinki to Oslo. When I asked the conductor whether he would be interested in doing an Interview, he was positive. So here I am, entering the main hall of Oslo Concert hall through a secret door, witnessing a rehearsal.

Orchestrated: Electronica

In 2011 British electronica group Nero made their first grand masterpiece. Although the work got dubbed as the “dubstep symphony”, the work features a big variation in genres. Although the work is not to be called a proper symphony, as it’s no long than 18 minutes, Nero managed to fit alot into this piece.
