Not all men wants to be free … or play jazz

Philosopher Alexander Bard, whose ideas on syntheism I have written about before here, has been quite vocal in what he sees as the dark underbelly of the #metoo campaign. Bard promises to further elaborate and address drives in the internet age and the need for human archetypes in his & Jan Söderqvist’s forthcoming book; Digital Libido. In a conversation (in Swedish) with Katerina Janousch (Swedish … Continue reading Not all men wants to be free … or play jazz

The problem with Men

The metoo hashtash is delivering a deafening blow to humanity online as we speak. Pretty much every single sister, daughter, mother, grandma and friend tweets or facebooks it. #metoo speaks of one thing in particular: toxic masculinity. What that means is that men are cultured into and taught how to be men in a way that is devastating to socities all around the world. When … Continue reading The problem with Men

The problem with Women

The problem with women are the same as the problem with men. We tend to see these as helpful categories. And perhaps sometimes they are? What we typically do when we speak about women or men is a short-cut that embodies a lot of different things. The problem is that in meeting other people the projection of what a ‘woman really is’ (or what a ‘man really is’) often overcodes and … Continue reading The problem with Women

Lyrics & Interpretations: Age Well

My collaboration ”Age Well” with Ten Walls has apparently taken off this summer. Toffler festival even used it for their official promo this summer, although they cut out the first row of the lyrics. I suppose ”then kill yourself” isn’t exactly getting people in the party spirit. However, what the lyrics are saying is of course not that you really should kill yourself. Rather, it … Continue reading Lyrics & Interpretations: Age Well

Lyrics & Interpretations: Distain

Sometimes when I write music I do it from a place of consciousness; trying to express something over a predetermined theme. When I wrote these lyrics for Anton and Rafael, I didn’t however. It was a sort of flow that started with expressing thoughts on cognition, drives and sufferings which are universal, that we all (or at least most of us) experience. And in the … Continue reading Lyrics & Interpretations: Distain

The Critic & The Creative

Over the last few days I’ve been involved in a heated argument in the burner community about a specific art project on a specific participatory festival. It has been years since I got into a match of to-ing and fro-ing opinions back and forth like this, and for good reason. At least if the reason is that you actually think that heated discussions will actually … Continue reading The Critic & The Creative

The Forest Interface: What happened in the forest

This last weekend, 35 burners decended upon Stora Kinäs Gård, smack in the middle of the deep forests of Östergötland. For 48 hours, there was a lot of different things going on; cuddles, genuine conversations, a jam stage, electronica yoga, bathing in the lake, a lot of brilliant dj:s and live acts – among them the premieer of Saagan’s (aka Andreas Saag) live set that has … Continue reading The Forest Interface: What happened in the forest

Lyrics & Interpretations: How We Think About Us

This is a track I wrote together with Luke Harney aka Typesun some time ago. Now it’s resurfacing in the advent of the British election in a new acoustic version, performed by Typesun and Romaine Smith on goosebump inducing vocals! Check it out, and see follow the lyrics below if you want. (No interpretation offered this time, except the message that Luke wants Brits to ponder: Turn … Continue reading Lyrics & Interpretations: How We Think About Us

Lyrics & Interpretations: Age Old Pain

  Oh, so lone, I’m feeling old and broken Feel like I’ve told all my stories to anyone caring enough to listen Must I, do I really have to try another time to fill my life with meaning, purposeful expressions It’s absurd in just one lifetime to pull off this puzzle I’ve accumulated failures for millennia   So throw me a parade, hurray, I have found the age … Continue reading Lyrics & Interpretations: Age Old Pain
