This project is about recording my 2nd album, Fri, with original guitar and lute music. It's about living the dream and shouting it out to the world.The music on the coming album echoes my change of lifestyle, from being a city-based office worker to become a freelance musician in the countryside.
Sometimes you feel that, although your basic needs in life are well cared for, something important is missing. So I decided to quit my job, and went all in for that something - which in my case meant more time for music, and more time in general - time to do more of the stuff you care about. Obviously, that also meant less money, so I had to make some conscious choices on expenses and how to live a simpler life, and it works out!
This call for funding is based on the desire to share my new tunes and the sensation of freedom that comes with making bold decisions and going your own way. The tunes are mostly done - at this stage they need final arrangements, recording, mixing and mastering. The funding will go unabridged towards studio hire, mixing, mastering and publishing. I have saved up NOK 20.000 to throw in myself, and need NOK 30.000 more to meet the goal. Make sure to watch the video for project sound and vision.
Thank you so much for being part of the project and making it successful!

Risks and challenges
Recording and producing an album is a creative adventure with stumble stones along the way. The biggest risk of this project is getting a brain-drought when arranging the tunes for final recording, and I won't record them unless I'm happy with their final guise. In that case, I will have to go to my major source of inspiration: Nature, and simply go trekking for a week or two to clean my mind canvas. This might delay the project accordingly, but I will do everything I can to make my recording deadline in september this year, and get the album released by November 1st.
I planned on launching the campaign earlier this spring, as I mention in the video, but life arranged for 10 weeks of teaching, enabling me to save up funds and lower the campaign funding goal accordingly. This is to let you know that, while delays may occur, I'm on the track and will finish.
Thank you so much!
