— So, eight years ago, a little wonderboy was born. And now, he’s gone. Our little wonderboy! How you survive such stuff? Don’t ask. We just do. I’ve restored my power to create and joy of life. But when the pain hits, it hits like hell. Not staying that long as it used to. And memories of joy can be restored. With melancholy. Yes, reaching far in the tough work called “sorrow”. In my multi-traumatic life, surviving PTSD and living with back and forth with anxiety to levels of the unbearable sometimes, I have fully returned to pursue and…
Pomodoro Mix Set Published – Featured On Pod Channel Norrtull Radio | #aBreathing #aFlow #aPulsation
I got featured with a mix on the Pod station Norrtull Radio, linked from image. Pomodoro Mix Set – NOV 2019 by #aBreathing / #aFlow / #aPulsation. A Pomodoro Mix is a mix of 25 minutes, supporting a work focus method called the Pomodoro Technique. Pick one task, and accomplish that in 25 minutes. Read more at https://francescocirillo.com/pages/pomodoro-technique. Here is a mix with three separate Pomodoro Mixes mixed with a short pause in between. Work – listen to one – take a break of five minutes by hitting the pause button after every mix! The mix can be used in…
Yesterday I saw one about Motown. And today 10cc. Great stuff!
One installation of Norrköping Light Festival captured by Karin, when out on a short walk. Feeling much sadness. TV day.
Began this morning with listening to the first album of 2020 – with Laleh: “Postcards”. Mika had his favourite song, with Laleh – “Bara få va mig själv”. So, a good way to start my musical year!
Attended a lecture by Olle Tholén, sound designer and film maker, from the film making collective Crazy Pictures here in Norrköping. Truly interesting for a sound and music nerd like me! Taking away a bit of the magic from experiencing the film, “The Unthinkable”/”Den Blomstertid Nu Kommer”, with the behind-the-scenes/production notes.
The annual Depeche Mode Bar by NEMCOM! Taking over Broadway Café, and playing DM all night! Three sets, one ambient/chill, one pure orthodox chronological, and a fictious live performance, mixing live recordings from live albums! We also played a re-run of Joakim Hedström’s “Complete Broadway Mix”, a mashup of 25 minutes made live 2011 at that year’s DMBAR. Very high spirit, and a marathon DJ set of seven hours! Love!
As a means to point to a future direction, I was having a try-out, to record three 25-minute mixes at place in Coffice, Norrköping. A music-for-productivity concept, where you take tasks and divide them into expected 25 minute chunks, time-boxing, and let the music set tempo, focus and energy to your working. Three modes and energies, represented by three out of five artist aliases – #aBreathing (chill/ambient), #aFlow (lounge/deep/dub) and #aPulsation (driving beats/techno). To be published in time!
Our Guardian Cat On-Top-Our-Herd-Hierarchy Soto (born/register name Pinkalicius’ Pralin, Holy Birman) turns five years today! Two photo stories getting Soto in a Nutshell! First – drinking water. Then! What moves? Another cat! Bam! Gone into the dark! Who is in the Kitchen? Next, also from bedtime – literally! When I’ve done my teeth brushing and other go-to-bed preparations, entering bedroom. Soto with a sharp eye on me! Then – when we have found to be still and calm for a while. Enter middle! But leaning on Mother Karin, since Birmans usually lean on loyalty towards one in the first place….
A day of rest. Only productive thing done.

On May 28, 2015, at 10.19CEST, Mika Hans William Abrahamsson, came from ‘there’, to ‘here’, at Skåne University Hospital, Lund, the Maternal Clinic, Delivery Ward, Caesarean Operation Room. From #AnotherWorld, to #ThisWorld. On Aug 1, 2019, at 11.34CEST, he went from ‘here’ to ‘there’, at Vrinnevi Hospital Intensive Care Unit, Norrköping. From #ThisWorld to #TheOtherWorld. What happened in between ‘then’ and ‘now’, is not possible to grasp in a short mix description on this platform. Music that came to ‘me’ beyond Aug 1, 2019, and up until October 10, 2019, are now flown together in one story – hereby numbered…
