Turkish Handdrums Kit (Darbuka)
Two darbukas, one tuned in E and one in A. Recorded with an RCA 77D and a Peluso 2247 thru a Retro instruments Powerstrip and a Revox c279 mixer. Multi layered with around 8 samples per cell.
Warm Tone Filtered Kit
Warm Tight Filtered Kit
Both kits were recorded with a Korg Monotribe directly into the hi-z input of my UAD Apollo interface. Some of the sounds are mixed with other, digital sounds. All sounds are multi layered. The lowest velocity triggers the most filtered lowpass sound, and the highest triggers unfiltered sound. Plug-ins used to create the samples include UAD Fatso and UAD Moog multimode filter.
The Warm Tone filtered kit focuses on tones rather than rhythm, but includes basic rhythm elements. The Warm Tight filtered kit is a more standard analog kit. Classical elements, but with a slightly different touch than an 808 or 909 kit.

Music for a video game made by Sandra Munter. It's played when you come to the last boss on a retro 8-bit stage. Arranged a little to show the variations and instrumentation. Made only with a gameboy and NI Battery 3. Unmastered.
Music for the short animated film "Benjamin's flowers". One other song for the film was recorded and mixed by me.
A take on NI:s slogan "The future of sound" perhaps? Made on one day like a fun little project. Unmastered.
Last summer we hung out at the beach a whole day and fooled around with bad quality high speed cameras and medium quality beer, and made a mock commercial. I've made the music, the editing and the graphic elements.
For my final exhibition at the royal college of fine arts in Stockholm I constructed half a room. It's like a 3-dimensional theremin, but instead of using the principles of heterodyning and capacitance, I used ultrasonic distance sensors to measure the proximity to any person (or mass) coming in to the room, then turning it into sound. The video shows a performance made by the help of dancer Lotta Melin on the opening day. After that, I refined the sound and the programming, so after a week I only used digital sine wave oscillators and had seemless transitions between notes. That way, it functioned/sounded much more like a theremin and if you were more people in the room, you could actually play chords and melodies if you were a bit structured. There were 18 sensors measuring distance and two webcams measuring colors and light and turning that into sound, too.
