From Stockholm, specializing in amplified objects and electronics in improvised and electro-acoustic music.
Experimental musical instrument builder, text-sound-composer, sound poet and piano technician, arranger, writer and debater.
He makes his own contact microphones, sound sculptures, sound installations, sound environments, performance art and has lectures, makes pedagogical projects and workshops.
He sees himself as the ancient traditional do-it-yourself kind of musician. His materials are usually cheap, his methods transparent, and he is inspired by the direct touch of the hands on materials and the strange poetic appeal of found objects.
Using things not normally associated with sound or music, he explores the microcosm of the smallest sounds, amplifying them into the audible range, usually without any electronic treatments. A performance becomes like an improvised puppet play or a dance of junk and he hopes to inspire people to create their own poor man's utopia out of almost nothing.
Through untraditional acoustics as well as traditional crafts and the basics of sound technology, he unfolds a miniature world, where knowledge, skill, inspiration and surprise can meet and develop together.
In his attitude a skeptic and surrealist, not an artist, although his cv lists collaborations with about 600 other artists from 33 countries on 400+ venues in 27 countries.
He is mostly active in the association for radical and experimental art, Fylkingen (he was chairman 2002-2004 and again 2009-2010), at the Electronic Music Studio, in the association Vetenskap och Folkbildning and the Surrealist Group in Stockholm.
