ABOUT

I have been playing and writing music all my life. Most of my earliest memories involve music. Music has become a broad mindset and approach across mulitple disciplines, including building instruments, modifying and enhancing recording-gear and building my own studio. I have been a music teacher in a school setting in my native Sweden, and a rock musician on tour.

I started out as a drummer, later adding guitar, bass and keyboards. I studied at Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, where I began recording and producing in studios around Hollywood. I have to thank Evan Frankfort of Wouldwork Sound and Bryan Davis at Hollywood Sound for sharing their knowledge, inspiration and gear.

I specialize in arranging, recording and producing your songs in any style of your choice.

I will give your songs a professional sound, fully produced and mastered with broadcast quality and ready for duplications.

The studio runs a Digi 003 rack with a Digimax LT optical extension for 16 channels of simultaneous tracking with ProTools 10 into a Mac Pro.
Dual 20" monitors facilitate open edit and mix windows.
For flat near-field monitoring I use active Truth B2031A's with switching capability to a more scooped Pioneer CS-G303.
Four-channel headphone system; Powerplay Pro-xl.
My outboard rack has a pair of original VCQ6's, RNC 1773.
For high-quality ribbon microphones I'm using a Steven Sank modded Behringer 1953, Art Pro MPA and a Magnecord three channel tube pre.
All different flavors.
