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…
Today, after a day downtown, we wwnt to the grave. Nadine had got a cat you could paint yourself – and, yay! – what talent she has! Rainbow ears and green glitterish. So beautiful an well done! After putting the cat and lightning a candle in it, she made a smiley out of autumn leaves. Tomorrow, going home. A very nice weekend to have Nadine here! I love you so much!
A Day Of Life and Death – And Learning To Find A Home In Your Alienation | #MikaTheHero #MikaTheAngel
Waking up to meet a very very very very very challenging day. Going to bed and feeling that life goes on. And on. And on! I love life! So be it! To grasp the content and nature of this day – right now, I can not. Check @akrogirl stories on an app focused on instant life sharing, some hours ahead. Making alot of remixes of an Alien Emoji felt like a great Lullaby Meditation. The crescendo of the remixes made, was finalized by Nadine, big sister to #MikaTheAngel … and yes, he is now flowing in #TheOtherworld … ….the One…
