A little animation and song made for a Valentine’s Day thing in the FreddeGredde chatroom.

We had a little thing in the chatroom, where we all got a randomly chosen valentine to do something nice for today! I got MariLu and made this video. :) I have barely finished any animations in my whole life, but I had a blast working with this. So fun to animate, seriously! (And it only took two days. Plus an entire night not sleeping. It could be smoother and more detailed, but yeah. It wasn’t a serious thing.)

Now I’m thinking of starting some bigger animation project, as soon as my album is finished and released. (Currently waiting for the drummer to record his parts.)

Wow, a year has passed already, but it feels like a month or two. Either way, I have to tell you that my projects (new album and a classical medley) will be delayed a few months, because life is life and stuff happens.

I figured I could share a bit of information though, and let you know that I’m totally alive. (I’ve seen some stupid rumors online..)

So, here’s a first draft for the album cover:
Brighter Skies cover draft
The track listing will be as follows:
1. Welcome the Bright Skies (5:45)
2. The Autotelic Self (11:04)
3. Your Life (2:59)
4. This Fragile Existence (5:49)
5. The Tower (8:20)
6. Shining (4:01)
7. Ocean Mind (18:24)

Basically, it’s a progressive rock album, not gonna lie! Plenty of crazy ideas, odd time signatures, heavy contrasts, everything I personally like with music. :)
But it’s not gonna be for everyone. That’s why I’ll also release The Classical Medley around the same time, which will be more in line with what most expect from me! And it’s my most ambitious medley yet, and hopefully the best.
I’d say it’s likely they’ll both be released around.. early March. (Edit: Make that May… New edit: Make that June! Final edit: Wooo, July 14th it is!)

So yeah, please look forward to that, and have some happy holidays!

Happy holidays and such!

I’ve decided not to post any new updates or videos until my next album is finished. So, don’t expect to see anything new from me until late 2013 or so.

Until then, take care!

(I will still be hanging around in the chatroom though, if you want to talk.)

A music video for an original song by Toxic Melons, with vocals performed by me.

This is the clown video I mentioned a few months ago! This English musician, Paul, asked me if I was interested in recording vocals for one of his songs, and since I liked the demo, I said yes. I also filmed some video footage of myself dressed as a clown, not really knowing what the final result would be. But now I finally know! :D

So yeah, this is really Paul’s project (and the video is edited by an Ed Stockham), but I’m featured in it, so, I hope you’ll like it!

In case you didn’t know why I haven’t posted anything new in several months now, it’s because I’ve gone back to studying, again! Just the subjects Swedish and English, but it’s enough to keep me busy..

I have finished my parts for the next “big” video though, but I’m waiting for a bunch of animators to finish their parts. I’m having some trouble even getting in touch with them now, so I don’t know how far they’ve come. But I doubt it will be up this month. So, possibly November! I also plan to make something Christmasy this year, but we’ll see.

Finally, that clown video is supposedly finished soon, so I expect an October release. I’ve only contributed with vocals, guitar and some video to that project though, so I’m not too involved with it. Will be interesting to see the final results!

What more could I say.. Well, I’ve added some sheet music and more tabs to my tabs section. There’s actually a nice guy named Erik who has offered to write down sheet music for my songs if anyone is interested, so tell me if you want any specific song!
