I have been able to find out what I really really want to do myself, trying out ideas that I haven't been able to do before because you don't have to compromise when you work by yourself.
Sometimes I think I should get another job, and do this only for its own purpose. It's important to separate creative expression from making money.
When I start to write and record a track, I always think about where it is supposed to take place, what kind of room that is, and what kind of atmosphere it should have. Also how it should be performed, and by what kind of musicians or vocalists. I work in a very theatrically minded sort of way.
I live a bit outside of Stockholm and I almost never go into town. I can live anywhere, I think.

Music has the potential and the capability to create something much bigger... it has the capability to be completely free, to do anything. And I think you limit that idea when you put yourself in front of it, in a way.
I have mostly software synthesizers and software drum machines. I'm very lazy. I don't really like to plug in a lot of equipment and external boxes and everything.
