I began writing songs around the age of 11 when I got my first tiny Yamaha keyboard. I don't remember which model. Later I bought a Casio keyboard and then realized that if I should attempt at being a somewhat serious musician I would have to get a synthesizer. Therefore I purchased a Roland D-5 (probably one of the worst sounding synths of all time) and with my Atari computer the songwriting became more serious. In 1996 I bought a Roland XP-50 and a Korg M3R and around the year 2000 I gave up my Atari for the PC.
From 2001-2009 I used my PC and software synths but then went back to hardware. I didn't believe the hype at first but soon realised that old analogue synths sound fatter than software synths and are much more interesting. So thanks to Ebay and similar sites I've gotten hold of some classics including the Roland Juno 60, Roland JX-8P and the Korg Polysix.
The influencies for my composing has been many over the years. Since the age of 7 I've been very much into film scores and TV series themes and as time's gone by I've been listening to all kinds of music. The style in which I compose can be described as a crossover between synthpop, westcoast and sometimes film music. For me the sound and the harmonies along with strong melodies are the most important aspects of my work. The music has to be beautiful. I don't care that much for the groove or the lyrics of the songs even if I, of course, doesn't ignore that.
