Photo: Lollapalooza. Opening the main stage at Lollapalooza Argentina 2018 with Jakob Ogawa. You can see me playing the bass to the right. Chance The Rapper, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals and Red Hot Chilli Peppers also performed at the same stage that day. The concert got broadcasted live on Argentinean TV and radio.

For many years I toured around the world as a musician. I performed at several and toured with bands all around Europe and South America. As a bassist I’ve been lucky to performed with many great artists at spectacular venues.

Live recording from Acephale, Colgne on December 16th, 2017.

I eventually gave up touring to live a more healthy life. Today I’m more settled in the city of Oslo, working on my own music. In fact I’ve never produced more music than now. Quitting touring resulted in a more introspect and intimate approach to music. I would start recording small pieces on the old piano at my parents house to my iPad and combine it with electronic elements.

Starting in Christmas of 2019 I decided to publish one work of music every week on my SoundCloud page. If you don’t wanna miss out go follow me over there!

I’m also active as a music journalist, writing for both Norwegian and International publications. To learn about my experience in writing about music, visit the Writing tab or check out my blog posts on music.

In my music I enjoy combining electronic and acoustic elements.

I’ve also made music for use in motion pictures:

In 2020 I did a collaboration with the poet Runa Aa. Skjeldal. She wrote a poem and sent it over to me. I read the poem and composed a piece inspired by the poem. I then sent it back to Runa and then she did put this video together. A fun little collaboration.

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.
