CONCERT FOR GHOSTS MEDIA COVERAGE - APRIL 28 2021
Newspaper Fyens Stiftstidende and Swedish music mag Zero Magazine have been kind enough to write about our concert for ghosts which is to take place at venue Magasinet in downtown Odense May 1, midnight. You can read the article from Fyens Stiftstidende here and the one from Zero Magazine here. The articles are in Danish and Swedish respectively.
CONCERT FOR GHOSTS MAY 01 - APRIL 18 2021
Might there be any chance of doing concerts these days of Corona, safe ones, that is? Yes, it is entirely possible: provided the audience is already dead. May 01, midnight, will see me perform a concert open only to ghosts at Odense venue Magasinet which, like so many other venues and theatres, has its share of ghost stories. The living will have to wait just a little yet for live shows. There should be a few advantages to being dead, after all, and with my background in goth culture it only seems fair I should do a little something for the dead. I have picked songs from my repertoire to fit the occasion and for the show I will be flanked on stage by musicians Marie Makaber and Olivia Obskur, both on extra vocals and synthesizers. I myself will handle vocals, synthesizers and the Commodore 64. Furthermore, there will be neon lights and laser beams - a little effort is in order when planning to rouse the dead and naturally the three of us will perform a spiritualist seance right before the concert. The performance will be filmed and it is the intention at a later stage to present video material from the concert online so that the fittingly curious can study what exactly is or is not caught on camera.
The concert is for the dead only and is dedicated to James Randi who died last year. We hit stage midnight.
RENDEZ-VOUS IV LIVE VIDEO HITS 10.000 VIEWS - APRIL 06 2021
My live video from Tribute Decadence 2019 in Copenhagen, our encore, a synthwave rendition of Jean Michel Jarre's Rendez-Vous IV, has reached more than 10.000 views according to YouTube. The musicians for that concert were Marie Makaber who plays synth on this piece plus Sofia Sadist on bass. I'm handling a couple of synths and the Commodore 64 myself - back in the day numerous computer games on that platform would feature 8-bit versions of classic Jean Michel Jarre tracks. You can find the video in the Video Section of this site and also on YouTube.
CONCERT VIDEOS UPLOADED - FEBRUARY 15 2021
I have uploaded two live videos from our Halloween concert at CoronaGolem last year when we were able to perform during the pandemic, albeit with audience restrictions. I'm flanked on stage by trusty Marie Makaber on synth and extra vocals plus Olivia Obskur, performing here for the first time with us, also on synth and extra vocals. The songs in question are Twice A Screen Removed and Ghost In The Machine. The videos can be found in the Video Section of this site and are also up on YouTube - just visit my channel.
GALLERY UPDATED - JANUARY 05 2021
I have updated the gallery on the site with pictures from various concerts of mine during the years 2019 and 2020. You will of course find them in the Gallery Section here, surprise-surprise.
