2017 eh? Hoping to get some tunes out the door; I have no idea what though... like always I have no plans, I just fire up my synths and see where they take me!
New this year is some more orchestral libraries.. I have noooo idea how to write for an orchestra, but I refuse to let that stop me 😀
I love to collab!

Thanks for visiting some of my songs!
Thanks for listening to "Sliver of Sunshine" - yea, exactly what I said to Liz... Rough Demo? lolololol. 😀
Thanks Kristian and congrats on making it to 14! Im 4 songs away with limited time.
Hey, thanks for the comments! I'm glad you're enjoying my crazy attempt at turning Westworld into a musical. It's SO FREAKING DIFFICULT. I'm killing myself. I guess it's the non-linear nature of the show that makes it so difficult to convert it to something on stage.
Hey man! Thanks for all the comments. I'm not a drummer, but I'm pretty good at laying down midi drums. Addictive Drums 2 is my weapon of choice. Sittin' there in a midi editor squintin' my eyes for like a half an hour.
Hey kristian! Thanks for the comments. The game series in question was Half-Life, it's soundtracks have awesome synth and ambient stuff.
And the mnet tag, it's an abreviation of muusikoiden.net, a finnish music forum. There are many participants from that forum so we decided to have our own tag for us to find the songs more easily 😁
Throw it my way, but I can't make promises, Kristian. I'm kinda in and out of hospital a fair amount over the next couple of weeks. 😞
But I'll definitely give it my best shot! 😀
Yay! Kristian! 🙌
I've been a bit slow dropping in to say "hi" this year. 😿
Thank you for scaring yourself with my grumpy old git video! 😂
Good sir, if you start anything in the key of Em, I will drop some words on it for "Mana Jones"!
Going to make the bridge about Deckard Cain... 'cause he's got the 411 on this ancient stuff.
Thanks for checking out my sounds. You are definitely making it happen. Your range is limitless, especially with these collaborations!
Looks like you're all about the collabs so far this year!
I just read your comment on Negasi's dungeon crawl song.
We should create a song called "Mana Jones"...
"Be with you in a moment
I'll fight full throttle
Spells a'comin' up after I
Drink this blue bottle"
Yes!!! I'm not really pushing for the full 14 this year, but I'd love to collab with you. I'll have some free time at the start of next week. Do you mind getting in touch via e-mail? Send me any ideas you're tossing around! firstname.lastname@example.org
Thx for comments on Jimmy´s back in town. Godt å høre hva du sier.
Haven't forgotten!!! Just been damn busy! Will e-mail after the weekend!
Thanks so much for dropping by and leaving such a lovely comment!
Wow... and to think that I have the utmist resoect for your work!
How do you propose we guve it a go?
Kristian I've played with Animoog on the iPad, but I hate the recording interface. The synth in "Go On" is from some Reason patch I downloaded years ago. I can look it up if you're curious but it was just part of some massive library of sounds, and I liked it.
Takk Kristian for oppløftende kommentar! Lykke til videre du også!
Thank you for your warm comment Kristian. I'm still at early stages of adding instrumentation so just settled on my piano sound. I'll be delighted to collaborate with you if you hear anything in a piece. Please kindly let me know. It is always amazing to collaborate with you. Thank you again for your support.
Hi Kristian... just sent you an email with a link to some ideas!
Alright, but I must warn you - I've been sick for the past few days and so my voice, will and creativity might be compromised. I resolve to press forward.
"Do I play guitar?" I mean, I can bang out some chords, so... kinda? 😉
Thank's, I don't play the drums, Erik Zachariassen or as most people know him EZ Drummer did the job. He is very patient, obedient and is always punctual for recording sessions. It's a Roland SH1000 that doubles the guitar.
Thanks for your awesome comments! I'm so glad I also found someone on FAWM who is as nuts about Westworld as I am!
Hey great to 'see' you! thanks for listening to my songs. i admire people who manage to comment so much in the first week besides from recording! i'm gonna listen to yours in a bit. i love incorporating orchestral bits into my songs. i wish i had a real live symphony as my backup band haha!
I'm getting to it, promise! But this week is gonna have a lot of packing and catching up on music biz stuff I couldn't do last week. Next week is for all the collabs!
Forgot to mention earlier: Since you now have a DSI in the house you should really check out Patch Morpher if you have an iPad. Really cool librarian and as the name implies, patch morpher. 😀
This is FAWM. Such a wonderful track. Beautiful.
Thank you for stopping by and listening to my song!! Yup, I recorded all the vocals 😀 I actually did it in a separate project, then added effects and overlays to it in the main project 😀
Of course! 😁
Thanks for listening, Viking dearest. Only dearest because you're the only Viking I know. But still... dearest! This year I'm definitely bringing the fire. Burn it all down; rise from the ashes.
I swear FAWM keeps removing people from my watchlist. You were definitely on it last year...
Yep, that's the minilogue - on song 2 as well. Probably will fall back into using some VSTs at some point but trying to use the minilogue wherever possible!
good to see you!
Hallooo!! Good luck this year!
On your marks... three minutes to kick off!
Hey Kristian, great to see you back. Have a good one 😀
I'll be checking out some stuff for sure!
Hey hey hey! Looking forward to your stuff this year as always 😀
Happy FAWM kristian! Let me know if you want to collab again this year!
Welcome back, KB, be visiting you soon.
Hey there, fellow nerd! Nice to see you again, too!
Hi there dear Kristian! Looking forward to hearing your orchestral tunes!
Yay! happy to see ya.
If we didn't collab we'd be breaking with tradition and worlds would end. I'm pretty sure that's a thing that would happen. But if you call me Valley Girl one more time I will smite you where you stand, Viking.
Kristian, Strike up the orchestra! Skal.
Another year another FAWM, have fun.
Thanks Kristian! Sorry to be breaking our collab streak...I'm considering a serious attempt at 50/90 in place of FAWM, if you could be tempted by a summer collab...
Anyway, have an awesome FAWM, and I shall be listening!
Fire up those synths! Can't wait to check out those orchestral sounds you're planning. 😀 Cheers to FAWM 2017!
You up for another collab or two this year?
PutterindPotzan Greataseeyaz 😀
Gonna keep an eye on you...! 😉
Hi kristian, thanks for your note on my soundboard! I'd be honored to do a collab with you!
Also hoping to be back with a vengeance, but know better than to promise anything after recent years. Having said that, a FAWM win would be nice this year - it's been a while!
Our work, in addition to being recognized by the Madison Area Music Awards, is huge among the porn spam community. That makes me happy.
In an unrelated note, I only just found out that Denmark is part of Scandinavia but Finland isn't. What the hell are you people doing over there, man!?!
Right on, and you have an even better one!
See the thing is, I'm kinda intimidated by you, which is why I've never watchlisted before. But this year I'm being brave. I ask only that you do at least 1 terrible song, to protect my ego.
Have an awesome FAWM, this is the best month of the year, right?
We'll expect your call. That tower has been somewhat troublesome ever since the accident with the trebuchet and boiling oil... 😂
Cannot wait... Your creations are inspiring. VERY much looking forward to hearing everything. 😀
Dude - pay that no never-mind! We're here and that's all that matters! FAWM!!!!
Welcome aboard, Viking heathen!!
Will this be the year we collab again?
Hello again Kristian, let's collaborate on something, I love every collaboration we had. Looking forward to hearing your new classical pieces.
Hi Kristian, can't wait to hear your new work.
I will see you, right? 😀
Kristian! I can't wait to hear the music that comes from you, this year. You've been such an inspiration. And, I am hoping very much we can collaborate together!
Hope you're around this year - always look forward to your tracks 😀
Hope you're in for 2017. I've somehow wandered into modular synth territory. My guitars are useless here.
Hope you're around again dude!
