2019/20

2019 was the year when I more or less all the time had my hands in clay, lime, gravel,worked with wood, wool and rubber material building a house and a land with my family, that now contains goats to. It´s the year when many central perspectives of life changed, the future will be affected of this, for sure. At the same time Stories of Belonging was growing, as my CD that will be released om Tentakel Förlag in may -20. Sound as language, a sound art-material for schoolwill be released by the same publisher.I did a try to start a music/sound art-movement for Climate change and realized that time was limited, so was my power. But the idea are only on hold!
