When the past arises

It is a solemn moment for me knowing that three of my earlier releases are available again after a long period of absence from the music market, re-mastered and with extensive album notes.

You know, being constantly filled with music 24/7, a new release is in many ways a major personal relief. The music is now internationally available and has the potential to meet those people that still are not aware of this music's existence. This is interesting and fascinating to an artist and composer, but a bit demanding for me as business man, since I only would like to deliver pieces of sheet music or albums out of the window at home, and someone else picked it up. But the world is not like that.

Many of the tracks on ABOUT MY GRANDFATHER were written while being out in nature. If you have this music on your headset while walking in nature, I wonder if you will be able to hear this? Because of the many melodic and dramatic compositions on this album, the music is also used in movies. Read the album notes here, and see if this orchestral music album belongs in your collection.

Sometimes episodes of joy or despair get manifested on piece of paper. On SEASONS OF LIFE, several works from my teenage years are present. I have just as close relationship to my first work as to my last. Time is just a relative factor; perhaps we all in reality grow younger? You can read more about the content of this chamber music album here. If you are into flute, violin or piano music - or if you just wish to take a chance to meet an unknown world of organic music and life philosophy, then perhaps this album might become a future treasure? Among others, you will find the enchanting Waltz of the Queen Op.4a No.1, the piano piece that end all movies in the Symbiophonies series, on this album.

On PICTURES BEFORE AN EXHIBITION, I used a synthesizer and a computer, not only to write down what I was hearing (or sometimes dreaming), but also to perform the works myself on the recording. I consider myself to be a perfectionist, and being able to have full control over the audible expression feels just right. If you enjoy the many possibilities of synthesizers or the imaginative world of film music, and if you at the same time are a bit open to new soundscapes where instruments perform in ways that actually are impossible in real life, then this album might right down your alley. Read the album notes here. 

Well, time goes on, and there is much in this life I wish to do. Whatever happens, I am happy that the three new re-releases have arisen from the past and from now on can live their own life out there in the big, wild world.

I cannot promise that the music will appeal to your subjective taste, but I can promise honest musical journeys provided by The FJB Fingerprint. You'll find the albums on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify - yes everywhere where digital albums are for sale.

Take care - and thank you for the attention!

Best wishes from
