Closing The Books Of 2019 – The Worst Year Of My Life | #MikaTheHero #MikaTheAngel #NadineTheHeroine #HOPEFUL2020

This year we lost our little love boy Mika. The worst that can happen in your life, happened. Losing your kid. At the same time we touched heaven in February, when he was declared well from the heart deficit he suffered from. So, all in all, he was well for a few months of his four year long life, our #MikaTheHero! We who are still here, we are still being there for each other, and I will continue to be the best father I can be for Nadine! Family and friends, I love you. Let the Love Force live strong…

A Master Class In Film Sound By Olle Tholén From Crazy Pictures | #Sound #Film #Retrospective

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.

Depeche Mode Bar 2019! | #DMBAR2019 #NEMCOM #Retrospective

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!

Recording Pomodoro Mixes At Coffice | #Music #aBreathing #aFlow #aPulsation #Retrospective

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!

The New Headstone | #MikaTheAngel

Yesterday it came into place – our family headstone. I had a strong peak in sorrow pain today. Getting so manifested … We are satisfied with the stone. Pink/black/grey tiger stripey, made of what is called Hallandia. Two bronze birds – one looking down, one looking up. Minimalist text. ABRAHAMSSON. Mika.

Ending A Yoga Studio | #Yoga #Retrospective

In my journey of recovery and rehab, I have much to thank Kundalini Yoga, and NKYC, the center in Norrköping. As a token of gratitude, I helped them out when they were closing their center in Norrköping, in order to focus only on their main one in Söderköping. A quite painful moment, since I remember much of Mika being there as well, playing around, during my work trial/work training year 2017/2018. Thank you Jan and Kathleen, and good luck with the future direction and development!
