More than two weeks off. Of reasons. I did an inventory on dates to fill in with retrospective blogging. I want every day of the year reflected in retrospect, where I did not do the Lullaby Blogging. There is something special with daily blogging. A journal, leaving memories where they are. Fragments of life, where the little can express much. Image and text. And also an exercise in writing, creating, discipline and focus! I need it! So, with that said – beginning tomorrow! Aiming to cover all the gaps before closing the book of 2019 – the most Lovely and…
At ProNova, Norrköping. Beautiful! Earlier that morning we also attended the Lucia celebration at Nektarinen, Mika’s pre-school.
Theme: Digitization and Society. Some years back I was one of the co-founders of TEDxNorrkoping.
In our kitchen.
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!
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.
