A couple of weeks ago we started to record a new song and it turned out really good.
Past week not much else could be done but the mixing and pre-mastering of a couple of songs, which actually gave us an opportunity to get Nightwalker into the same feeling as the other songs on ”Fight for balance”.
So now we suddenly stand there with two songs to chose from as the next preview of the album.
Now I am a little boneheaded when it comes to releases, because I want to attach a video to the song to be released. Other opinions are, get the song out, it’s finished, screw the video. But I like the idea of adding a little ”footnote” to the song.
That’s why I am not comfortable with the previous release that we had to do because of the deadline.
So the little snag at the moment is, what song to release first?
”Life” would be a good idea because we’ve already started on the video. But the new one, ”Nightwalker” is a really good song in my ears and the video to that song would be a lot simpler.
As you realize I am only telling you this because it’s easier to reach a conclusion when you have to pull out your own reasoning in the open like this. So I’m not going to tell you what will be my conclusion, I’m not alone of the decision either.
We will make it a surprise.
A very beautiful friend of mine said something really memorable.
How can I be longing when I don’t know where I belong.
I hope she will be in a video soon.
See you square.

Today I would choose to be Mr. Smith. Today I could sit in that office with Morpheus and share my view of the world. Today I could see each and everyone of you as Neo, but today I would succeed in my mission.
Today I could win the war against, not only humans, but against the Timelords too. Today Yoda and Luke Skywalker would perish in the most shameful of ways, with no other force to handle but me. In fact even the big bang wouldn’t be allowed to bang, not without a written consent from me. Which I would deny.
Today I woke up with a headache, but now after a few mugs of coffee the only thing that could save you all is someone who is hiding in the neurons of my mind. Someone I always have a hard time forgetting whenever I get reminded of her.
Anyway, now I need to go. I’ve finished my breakfast and, as Churchill according to legend once said right before he died.
i’m bored of it all
I have been using a service called Streamzoo for a while. I used it to share pictures with people on twitter and Facebook, among others. Lately I’ve noticed a decay in my use of the service though. I really feel it unnecessary as Google+ have an excellent way of sharing photo AND video.
Only thing that is a bit of a drawback is that there are no easy connection to twitter and Facebook. That is also one of the problems when it comes to sharing the things i write on this blog. But as I have a lot more people following me on Google+ than on any other network It’s quite easy for me to chose what network I shall use.
If you are interested in sharing things that you create with people, there are so many advantages with Google+ that if I had to chose only one network, Google+ would be it.
Well maybe she is right, the woman who said to me that I should try myself what I write about in my song. Yes maybe I really should try, to ”Fly, now on wings of tomorrow”.
So why don’t we, people in general, try out our wings and see where they might carry us? Well maybe because of another thing that she said. Certain things that comes really easy for people to do, we forget to value them because they come so easy for us. Others who see what we do might feel it’s great that we can do it, because the can’t do it, but they have other skills. But if people never comment on the skills we have, then we will never really realize what it is that we can do. And people don’t say anything about what others do unless we give them a reason to.

When creating a new song, I think that finding new unusual sounds are just as important as the original idea. The sounds themselves bring out new ideas.
So at the moment I’m working on a song called ”Fly now”. And I admit that I’ve never felt that comfortable with it, although I’ve believed in the lyrics, harmonies and the melody, It wasn’t until I tried to use some ethnic instruments that the pieces fell in place.
Now I had to play the background in a way I hadn’t thought of before. Suddenly the intro for the song turned the song all around and now I sit there asking myself that stupid question, did I write this? But I do it with a smile on my face.
I know there are a lot of people saying that the best music are being created on a guitar or a piano. But I think it’s more important to keep an open mind and see what happens if you try something new. See where your imagination brings you on the journey through that undiscovered musical land.

I would really like to have the equipment to make a video like this.

I’m starting to believe that the only one fit to lead this planet into the future is already dead.
Now why do I say that?
When it comes to leading, I think it’s important to know limits. Not only the limits of society, but the limits of himself. The only one I know about who did that, wrote a very insightful quote about leading that I want to share with you know.
”It is a well-known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it… anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.”
Quote by Douglas Adams.

A picture of me posing as a dreamer
Imagine someone invents a time machine but immediately realizes it’s a real bad idea and travels back in time to stop it from happening. Then the time machine won’t be invented so he can’t go back in time to stop it from happening, thus the time machine still will be invented.
Thing is, this might become a perpetual loop. Then the question is, will everything else in the universe also keep on repeating or will it just be this isolated event?

Progress in the work of the next album is ongoing and it is really fun, in every meaning of the word fun. We are trying new ways, new ideas, at least new to us, when we are working with the songs of the album. And I guess that’s what makes it fun.
It’s also really fun too work with my brother again, it’s been a while. We both realize they we’ve both evolved in different directions musically, fun thing is that we also realize that we complete each other still. My brothers developed new ideas in his musical agenda and so have I. But so far we complete each other.
4 songs are getting close to being finished. But as we’ve talked about having ten songs on the album there are still a lot more work to be done.
Talk of making a singel followed up by a video have just started. But I truly hope that we decide to go for it.
Anyway, if we do, we will post it on YouTube and on ReverbNation. So you won’t be unaware of if and when we decide to do it.
Suggestion on the name of the album have so far stopped at ”Fight for balance”.
We think that will go fine together with the feeling of the album.
Thank’s for all your support.
