February update
Recording of a fifth album is in full swing. The concept for the new music is to focus on acoustic guitar, acoustic drums and electro mechanical organ. This combination is giving the album a very 70ies feel, and I actually like that. This is a departure - or perhaps a deroute - from the electronic style that have dominated my previous works.

I'm currently focusing on eleven songs, but it's still too early to judge which of them will make it all the way through the process. My attitude towards the tracks changes from day to day; the track I disliked yesterday, I'm excited by today and vice versa. For example there's this track that I'd decided to throw away, because I thought it was below par and didn't fit the rest of the tracks. I decided to check the mix one last time, and then I changed the drums, put some distortion on the bass and added the stringmachine from duch Eminent 310 organ to the corus. The result is that this track, currently known as 'Paraffin', is my favourite...

I don't have a title for the album yet, but the working title is 'Her Secret Garden'. However this will probably change. So far the only album I've done where the working title became the actual title is 'Constructions'. 'Anyway' had several working titles from 'Roads' to 'Archipellago'. So you never know.

I'm hoping to get the recordings done by the end of spring. After that comes mixing... Might this be a summer release? Probably not, as it always takes longer than expected to do an album...
