This autumn I am finally recording my debut album as a saxophone player. For this project I have chosen to work with Jonas Nilsson on double base, Linus Lundquist on drums and with Mikael Wåhlin on piano. The album was recently recorded at Rombo, outside Örebro. 

The music for this album has been written during the last couple of years which have been the hardest overwhelming years in my life.  The music came to me when I was inspired. Basically I wrote this music when I felt truly happy and relaxed. To be able to make this album make me feel human again. When I work with it I forget all about my rare kidney disease, all about being stuck with dialysis four times a week, all about not being enough as a musician, all about loosing techniques, power, muscles, energy and practice time. During many years I've been working hard with many different projects together with other musicians. Groups playing original music in genres such as jazz, pop and music from the Balkan States and Brazil. Last spring I did a dialysis performance called: Wallée Signalerar that included electronics, movements, improvisation and dialysing live on stage during three hours, while playing along with the sounds from my dialysis machine. Now, it's time to do my own debut album. I am longing to share with you my inner melodies that came to me during my time as a musician in Sweden, Brazil, and at Cuba. Melodies that came to me when I was able to walk freely again in the forest during springtime after three months at hospital. Melodies that appeared when a close friends baby was born. Melodies that showed up on my way between two continents. 

My earlier projects have been financed by many years of doing concerts. However, this particular project is at the time more focused towards creating a high quality record than on making live gigs. Therefore I need a different source to finance this album. I will use the money from this campaign to pay the recording, the mastering and the actual printing of the album. If I receive more money I will use them to finance the rest of the costs which will include Kickstarter Fee, artwork, the mixing and gauge for the musicians. 

Working Schedule

29-30 September - Recording session at Rombo with the quartet. 

December - Done with the mixing and the mastering

January - Administration around the record, printing

10th of mars - Album release and release concert

Risks and challenges

The time schedule might have to be adjusted, depending on the outcome of this campaign and if I need more time in the after recording phases to make this project as good as I possibly can. No matter what, the album will most likely still be released during spring time 2019.
