These are the albums I've
released over the years (a few unserious ones was excluded),
listed by release date in
ascending order. Some are available on
several streaming services.
While waiting on vocals for
another Detached Ignorance album, I used my inspiration to
create some brand new songs. When the waiting started to get
boring, I changed perspective and made this album my top
priority over the whole year of 2020. I call it my "2020 baby".
It was a fresh feeling to work with songs while they still feel
relevant (all songs except one are written in 2020). When 2020
was about to end, I was 99% done with the album. I wanted to fix
the general sound of some parts but lost my mixing/mastering
inspiration so I lay the project on ice. Then I got Covid-19 and
didn't touch my studio for a long period of time. Now I release
it knowing that it probably still have some parts that could
sound better, but it's still OK. I guess that releasing
something that feels important to myself will always come with a
melancholic feeling of never being entirely satisfied. And this
album feels much more important than most albums I've released
recently. Thanks to Salah Fatah who sang parts of the choir in
Finn Fem Fel
This is one of the least
important albums I've made in a while.
It's like a "breather" of pure playfulness between more serious
projects and it's not as polished and tinkered with as the
latest Gammis album or the coming Detached Ignorance release.
The only boundaries I've given for the KondensKungen albums is
that all tracks must be made with samples starting on the same
letter and that there's no lyrics even if there's choirs
sometimes. Here all tracks are made with samples on the letter
"F". The title of the album "Finn Fem Fel" means: "Find Five
Faults", but I'm sure that you can find several more. I'm still
happy with the results though, given the short amount of time
I've worked with the individual tracks. Big thanks to all that
played with me in the album: My brother "Klåpfinger", my kids
"Sibbe" and "Struten" and last but not least, a big thank you to
my friend "Zigge" for his contribution.
I think it was in 2016 when I
was visiting Dronten with my kids. We tried to record songs like
we always did together "back in the day" (before we each got our
own families). It turned out to be a bit more difficult to get
stuff done this time around. I traveled back from our visit
without any musical proof of being there. Then it took some
years and Dronten showed me that he had done some work on some
of the songs we recorded back then. Finally, in 2020 - I think -
we decided to finalize a few of the songs that were laying
around. Meanwhile, I have been trying to get Dronten to record
some vocals for one of my other projects. Because of that we
decided that he would be the one in charge of this "GG Livet"
album. The result was that the songs that made it into the album
was the ones that are mostly made by Dronten. The arrangements
and composing is mostly his and I play a more layed back role..
for once :). I did however, mix and master
the songs. Big creds to Zigge who helped us with the guitar
solos in a few of the songs.
In 2017 I started to play
around with one of my older songs one night (it was the song
"Den Grå Musen"). The result turned out pretty good and so I
decided to make a whole album with techno remixes of old songs.
The Idea lay on ice for a few years while I worked on other
projects, but it has constantly popped up in my mind. Looking up
what techno really sounds like I later decided to call it EDM (Electric Dance Music) instead.
EDM seems to have a wider span of sound and I hope that all
agree that these remixes can be counted into that genre.
Remixing these songs gave me a kind of relaxing feeling. When
the original already have been released it gives me a bigger
space of playing around with new ideas. It doesn't matter if all
of the original texts and parts of the song gets included. So
it's been a really fun ride trying to get these remixes to this
final state. It's not my most serious release, the album art may
be my witness, but I'm still proud of the outcome. Big thanks to
my daughter who lifts the vocals on "Svalan" to another level.
Konspirationsteorier i Bollhavet
Take the pure happiness of just
pressing record and go, combined with a large number of remakes
of the final mix and you'll get this album. It's definitely not
the best workflow to remake the mix over and over after
listening to different sources, but I'm happy with the results.
The mixes have different feelings to them but they are not to
separate for my taste. It's always a joy for me when my kids
want to participate in my songs, so big thanks to Ester
"Struten" Ovekrans and Séur "Sibbe" Ovekrans.
This is a remix album that
celebrates my most creative days back in 2001. At that time, I
would often make a whole song (or two) from scratch almost every
day. I have always been especially productive during last couple
of months of each year and 2001 was no exception. Some of the
originals have been used in a few low profile games during the
years which makes them some of my most known creations. I only
hope that the people who enjoyed them in 2001 also enjoy these
remixes. I saved my favored track for last.
This album is a deep and depressing thing. It contains some of the anguish and sadness I've needed to express over the years 2011 to 2018. Instead of putting one or two of these songs into an album and then mix it with lighter content, I got talked into piling them together like this by my wife Jessica. ;) Big thanks to Ahnna Gutler who sings choir on track 2 and main song on track 3. Thanks also to Björn Hagman and Henrik Petersén for good insights on the production.
Glitterbengt was Here
Released by the alias "Detached Ignorance" in 2019.
The songs were written in 1998 - 2018. Mostly recorded in 2018.
Genre: Rock, Pop, Metal.
Theme: I digged up some "relics" from my old vault. As I continue to try and separate my coming albums from each other, I had to come up with a new alias. The "Detached Ignorance" name is a play on words, being some kind of polar opposite of the word: "Mutual Edification", which was the name of the band that first tried to release one of the main songs in this album. A few songs were former unfinished projects, others were made in FT2 or impulsetracker several years ago. The only thing these songs got in common is that the lyrics is written in english and that I've always wanted to do them justice. Perhaps I did, atleast with some tracks. I worked a lot with the mastering part of this album.
Ett Steg i Rät Vinkel
As the pressure of several
unfinished projects weighted down on me I decided to just forget
all struggles and just create for a while. Two months later I
was finished with these songs. They are all made with samples
and plugins on the letter "R" in my instrument library, a fun
framework to work within. As I have loads of projects ongoing
with different kinds of vocals I made this entirely
instrumental. In a sense it's like going back to my roots doing
this kind of album. I'm expecting to release more albums with
"KondensKungen" in the future, using other letters.
These are some random songs that I've made over the years for no particular reason. I've not considered many of them worthy of an album until I tried remastering them in 2018. The result of my newly acquired mastering skills left them in a more album ready state and it feels good to finally gather them together like this.
Remastered and released in 2018.
Songs written and recorded 2009.
Genre: Hard rock, Ballad, Hip Hop.
Theme: Characters from the children's book.
A discontinued project from 2009. After a flat mixdown remaster in 2018 I thought it deserved to finally get released. Songs are inspired by the children's book "Moroten Oskar" which I released back in 2009.
The earliest song in this album
was made when my oldest kid was only two years old. She wanted
to help me creating a song which resulted in "Gud som haver", a
remix of a song she sang in preschool. Over the years my kids
have grown more and more interested in creating music - like
their dad. All these songs were made on their initiative, a few
even have pre-written lyrics. But only a few. :) Created with:
Ester O. & Séur O.
Addicted to Power
Released in 2017.
So, I tried to remake an old tracker tune in logic. A month later I had this album finished. There are six new songs and eight remixes of old songs from back in the day. Track 9, Eternity remade, was originally recorded in FT2 in 1997 but I arranged it on my synthesizer years before making it one of my first musical arrangements, ever.
This project started with me
listening to old dictaphone recordings from around 2010-2013. I
tried to implement my ideas into Logic and found it easier then
expected. I created this album over the summer. It's one of my
more serious attempts. Featuring: Ester O, Johannes A.
& Séur O.
Trallpunk i tårtbitar
Released in 2016.
Genre: Punk rock.
In a creative surge in 2016 I involved my brother in my current project. He had just bought a MAC to be able to open Logic files and suddenly they were flowing back and forth at a fast pace via our mutual dropbox. Some songs got the way I expected them to, some got totally different. It was a really cool experience to share songs in their early state and leave so much creative freedom in my brothers hands. Most songs got happy even though the lyrics may hold criticism a la punk. Recorded with: Johannes A.
Gammis & Dronten had just
recorded the "Pite Sessions" album and I got afraid that all the
songs we had made between finalizing the "Kramgoa Stjärtlåtar"
album and the recent one would be forgotten if we didn't gather
them up in a album. So this is kind of a "leftover" gathering
from a few recording sessions over the years of 2007 - 2013. But
then again, what could be considered NOT to be "leftovers" when
it comes to G&D? Recorded with: David G. Featuring: Gabriel
G, Johannes A, Jona H. & Noomie G.
Released in 2015.
Genre: Pop, Rock.
While the band "Mutual edification" had tried (and by my standards - failed) to record a album at this studio once before, this album is my first true album recorded at professional studio (using Peter Gabriels old mixing table). This time it was only me and David G. that took the trip up to Piteå. We had a nice weekend. Recorded with David G. & Jona H. Mixed by Jona H.
After an emotional discharge
with the album "DGM" it was time for something more lightweight.
I came up with the idea to make a tribute album to the game
Counter-Strike while (again) playing it way to much. While I was
more at ease this time around, I would sometimes find myself
singing about the events in the game. There are
"highlight"-videos for every song on my youtube page. I'm
especially happy with the videos I made for my three special
teammates: Deewey, Eliar & Jolias.
DGM (Den Grå Musen)(Den Grå Musen)
Released in 2013.
Genre: Rock, Pop, Hard rock.
Theme: Childhood memories, Relatives.
youtube link (with full texted lyrics)
This project started in theory at the eventful Christmas of 2012. I felt the need to process the relationships I had with my family and relatives, as well as my whole childhood, in the best way possible - namely by cover it in music. Needless to say, many of the songs are of high emotional value to me, and it took me more mental strength to finish this album then most others. Featuring: Ester O. & Johannes A.
While devoured by other parts
of life, my recording activity had almost taken a full halt
during the 2007-2012 period. I got married, had my first child
and made a few career switches. I did, however, still create a
lot even if I didn't have the time to record it properly. This
album is an attempt on making a audio story for children. I had
just become a dad and wanted to add my daughter in my passion
for creating audio. I didn't continue with more storytelling
audio after this but I'm still happy that I finished the album.
Featuring: Ester O.
Released in 2010.
Genre: Acoustic, Troubadour, Pop.
It had been years since "Gammis & Dronten" met to compose music. We drank some beer and took it slow (mostly producing things that I don't share :)). This time there was mostly one song that really made a impression on us, namely "Semester". Dronten decided to release a EP, the full length album would come years later. Recorded with: David G.
Rör mig nu
During a visit at my friend
David G's a neighbor of his suddenly committed suicide. We took
some time to reflect about life and paused the ongoing "Gammis
& Dronten" recordings. Instead we recorded this humble 7
track disc. The emotional aspect is strongly present. Recorded
with: David G.
Released in 2006.
Songs from 2004 - 2006.
Alternative album name: Untitled.
Genre: Pop, Rock, Metal.
Recorded on three or four different setups located at different locations during 2004 to 2006. The sound quality may vary as much at the genres. This album has only one constant to all the songs: They were recorded just for fun! Recorded with: David "Dronten" G. Featuring: Johannes A, Martin & Roland G. A.
It was (still) the summer of
2005. I was working at a farm, planting lettuce and harvesting
tomatoes and cucumber. While I was working I came up with a lot
of new rock melodies, so I started to record them with my
dictaphone. I decided to keep a tight theme to the new project,
it turned out to be my old gaming experiences. I used my new
acoustic guitar to make it sound a bit cleaner then the albums
made months earlier. Featuring: Henrik E. & Jessica Å.
Tribute to Highway
Released in 2005.
Genre: Hard Rock, Grunge, Metal.
Theme: All of the songs made for Highway.
In the eventful summer of 2005 I moved my little studio to my friend Henrik P's home after finishing "Anksjön" at my mothers place. Me and Henrik worked together to sum up all songs we had made for our old rock band "Highway". I had already remade some of the songs with Swedish text on the "Grötvåg" album, now we (finally, after years of temporary versions) recorded them as they were meant to sound. Created with: Henrik P.
