Little Tour of Big Australia

Heading to Australia next week! To celebrate I’m releasing a new album (90 minute cassette) that heads down the foggy C64 and 808 ambient electro road. Really happy with this one! They’re quite limited, but if you’re quick I’ll put you on the list to get one if there’s any left after the tour. Use electronic mail.

(The green poster design by Minusbaby. The cassette designed by iLKke. The Square Sounds video made by cTrix I think?)

So — quite happy to be playing with some great artists in good ol’ Oz. Check this out:

March 14: Noise Floor, Sydney w/ MeltUnit, Hedonist, Rob Joyner, NITROX, and more

March 15: Hotel Metro, Adelaide w/ little-scale and Tim Koch.

March 16: Soundpond, Adelaide + stream. Live C64-improv in radio and stream. More info.

Appearance at Aaron Swartz / Piratbyrån screenings


These two movies are screening today on the 21st of October. The first one about the American activist Aaron Swartz who in his fight for internet freedom ran out of steam and ended his own life. The other movie is by Geraldine Juárez and portrays the Bureau for Piracy’s wild kopimi style. After these, I will do a little gig or a talk, or both. We’ll see.

The event is organized by Doc Lounge Göteborg and happens at Bengans. More info here.

Live @ Superbyte

This weekend is going to be good. Don’t miss out! I’ve requested lines and naked boys from the Keff (the VJ), and will also have a special dancer for my show. As for the music, it’s probably going to be mostly Amiga electro/funk/cheese and C64 acid, with a touch of wobble bobble boom boom.

I’m also announcing a new release at this party. More about that later..

Live at Snel Hest & FARM

This Friday I’m performing at the opening for Snel Hest at Bar10 in Göteborg. Also a livecoded rave performance by Yaxu / Algorave, and Dataklubben. Snel Hest is an exhibition at Alingsås Konsthall with people from F.A.T, James Cauty from KLF, Raquel Meyers, and others. Geraldine Juárez put it all together, so better not miss this one! I’m included in Geraldin’e piece Porr i Skogen, and also a little bit in Raquel’s teletext piece.

The day after I will do an improvised C64-set for the party after the FARM workshop (Functional Art, Music, Modeling and Design). It’s at 3:e Våningen and starts at 8, with all performances more or less related to live coding. Yeah!

Live Coding in Gothenburg, 8 April

Friktion features live programmed music by me, Simon Mattisson and Niklas Sjösvärd (also known to chip-people as Sm0hm and Zabutom respectively). The venue is Atalante.

I will start the C-64 and jam from scratch, like I’ve done a couple of times lately. I use the defMON-tracker, so I expect live coding purists will throw rotten kiwis at me.
