This weekend I’ve spent a few days on the Maglehemsfestival. This is a very small and intimate musicfestival located in the very beutiful “Österlen-area” on the southeastern coast of Sweden.
The festival focuses mostly on rock and pop music but also has a few electronic acts and even some poets and other art forms on the schedule.
On Saturday at 4 PM, I did my live-performance. This was the third time I performed at the festival but the first time I played in daylight.
It was a new experience playing my music in bright sunshine and 25 ° C. This brought a different kind of audience and mood than playing as the closing act in the middle of the night that I’ve done the other years.
But because it was so sunny and bright, I could not use the visual projections that I had created for this live set. I think this miscalculation unfortunately resulted in that the show lost a dimension.
But I’m satisfied with the musical part of the show and feel that it would be fun to work on with it and make it sound even bigger and deeper.
And it would be intresting to do some more live apperances with it in the future,
where I also includes the visual effects.
All the sounds in the set is made of many different field-recordings that I have recorded and later processed using the computer and some analog effects to create this “sinuswave sounding drones”.
