I am happy to be featured on this playlist.
“Summer Forest” (2009) featured on yet another compilation album.
Seascape has its origin from the debut album Fairytales (1998). It was the last track on the album and included a “hidden/secret track”, 30 sec after its end.
On this 2021 version, the hidden track is removed, no more secrets!
The track has also got som sonic treatment and a 2021 “makeover”.
If you want to know what the 1998 secret was, put on the last track on Fairytales.
I am very happy to present the cover for the upcoming single FLOW, to be released on May 21. Visual artist Olaug V. Welde is the creator of the wonderful image, that she very kindly let me use.
“Through The Dark” is taken from Christian Weldes 2015 album, Illuminate.
The track features Norwegian jazz player Ole Jacob Hystad on tenor saxophone.
The industry standard master format, the DAT-tape is no longer in use. I still have lots of ideas and sketches in this format, so I will spend the weekend and the following days to transfer these to the computer as audio files.
Hopefully some forgotten gems might turn into full production in the future. It is always fun to listen to ones old ideas, some as far as back as 1993. Some of these files are already on albums like Fairytales..
Tech nerd alert:
The optical ins of the Edirol UA-25 audio card captures the digital audio from the Sony 57 ES DAT player, kindly borrowed to me by Vegar Pedersen. Some trial and error with cables and sample rates and we are in motion!
In 2015 Pink Floyd backing singer Durga McBroom was featured as singer on two tracks on my Illuminate album. The title single and the song When Night Falls.
