I cannot even remember the last time I updated this website. It has been really, really quite for me music wise for the past few years. Other things have taken up so much time it is weird even thinking about it. As those things come to an end, I find myself somewhat drawn to music again. It is really weird looking at my old lyrics and realising that I cannot even remember the melody that went with it. Perhaps I will pick it up again. Then again - perhaps not.

More than half a year has passed, but at least I have something for those who have waited for an update. A long time ago, I wrote a song to a friend of mine whose husband died, and now, I have made a very quick and quite bad recording of it. Still, it is something, so if you want to check it out, click on the "Music" tab where you can download it.

It has been more than two years since I last updated, which is a good indication I guess that nothing has happened. At some point I lost inspiration and from then, I went inactive and stopped making music.
So what caused me to write again? Well, I am currently doing a lot of live shoutcasting for a computer game, and through there, some people found my website and started listening to my music. I got some nice feedback, too, and because of that, I felt I should write an update.
Well. I don't know when and if I am going to do more music. I need inspiration. I need someone to work with. If I find that, then we will see what happens next. I have uploaded a few more old songs though, as a thank you to those who visited the site. And maybe, just maybe, I might record something new - if I can only get my sound to work properly on my computer...
Oh, and I have created my own LiveJournal for less musical musings. If you want to visit it, you can check it out here.

Finally, things are happening here. I just bought hosting for KidArctica.com and here I am, using my domain for the first time. Last night I made a database as well for the news postings, and I implemented some asp code into the news page so that updating is much easier. Later, I will make a web interface so that I can update from anywhere. Musically, I haven't done all that much lately, but things will hopefully change this summer. In July, I should be off to Horten to record some songs, and I will stop by in Oslo to work some more with the guy from Vadsø. Until then, I'll just do what I've always done, play at home and make some new songs every now and then, while trying to figure out which songs to record.

Things may be happening, then again, that's the general situation - "may". A friend of mine got to this website, downloaded a few songs, burnt one of them and listened to it for hours. Later, he offered me to pay half of the costs of releasing a single or an EP (of course, assuming it won't be too expensive). While I don't really want to be "in debt" to anyone, the thought is of course tempting, and I'm starting to look into prices and opportunities. Besides, I'm thinking arrangements and songs. Hopefully, this will get to something and not just fade away like everything else.

My good friend Kristian has redesigned my Kid Arctica website. The result is really good. I've been really busy lately, so I haven't done a lot musically for a while. I've got a lot of ideas for electronic music in my head, but I can't get them out. Yet. Other than that, I added the lyrics to the newest songs.

It seems like the updates come in batches. Well, here is another batch. My musical life has come back to life. The main reason is probably the fact that a very good friend of mine, Nicholas, taught me how to record music and mix it roughly on my own computer. Since then, I have recorded several of my newer songs. Links to them can be found in the Music section. I have got some nice feedback from people I know and people I don't know that much, and I appreciate that a lot.

It has been a good while since I did anything to this website. I haven't done all that much, though. A while ago I answered an ad where this band wanted a vocalist, and I went to one rehearsal with them. Since then, I haven't heard anything. It doesn't really matter that much though, because well, I still sort of want to play my own music. I've written a few more songs since my last entry, and I've also got a few more song ideas. Other than that, CrushdBug entered me on mp3.com, so if you want to hear the song "Better Than This", you should go there. The song is a very poppy, but well, that's the way Crushd mixed it.

Yesterday I got a touch of inspiration and so this website saw the light of day. After a period with high musical activity, it is kind of slowing down to normal again. Still, I'm glad to see lines of lyrics just falling into my head every now and then. I recently wrote some lullabyish lyrics called "Little Brother". Karianne Berg is currently working on a melody. She will get to Bergen May 16 and then we'll see. I am also working on another tune, found a chorus line and so I'm trying to work out a verse. The working title of this song is "In This World".
