I've been asked to provide the music and soundtrack for a new podcast being launched by a friend of mine, so I've been doing a fair amount of atmospheric post-rock stuff lately. Having fun overdubbing feedback and suchlike, which Malin really doesn't appreciate at all, so I have to do all my recording while she's out. These are a couple of samples - the second one in particular I'm quite pleased with.

Aww, thanks! That's good to hear - GSYBE! are of the touchstones for the sort of thing I'm aiming for. :smile: These pieces  are very simple, mainly because they've been put together for a fairly  specific purpose. I've got a few more complex things sketched out very roughly that would take it a bit heavier, towards Cult of Luna territory, but I'm going to have to work on those with a bassist and drummer - there are limits to what I can achieve on my own kneeling in front of an amplifier in my living room, surrounded by cables and FX pedals...

This is really cool! What kind of podcast are we talking about here?
Capital is dead labor, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labor, and lives the more, the more labor it sucks.

It's scifi/nerd culture thing, from a Norwegian perspective. I can't give any more info right now, partly because I haven't heard any of it yet and partly because I've been asked not to for the time being (it's not a big secret or anything, I think he just doesn't want to talk about it until it's actually ready to launch). Sounds like it could be interesting, though, and not just because I massively appreciate being asked to do the music for them.


I've got a bunch of different musical projects and suchlike going on at the moment, which is doing me the world of good - I've got a couple of people who I jam with semi-regularly just for the fun of it, I'm doing the post-rock/ambient instrumental stuff largely on my own for the time being, and I've got two other friends I'm working with for a couple of different studio projects, one of whom I'm also working up a live repertoire with, aiming to start playing around town in front of actual audiences some time in the early summer. So, I'm keeping myself busy, and working for/with other people gives me the necessary impetus to keep me from getting too lazy.

We should totally get together and play sometime. It's been far too long since I saw you anyway - we should probably take this away from the forum, though :-)

Sounds good!
