The long journey

Completed and released on CD

This project reflects a future where man has develop the possibility to travel to other stars. But not without misstakes...

"The long journey" is influenced by the astronomer/philosopher/author Peter Nilsons (1937-1998). And also by Harry Martinsons space poem "Anaria".

Luther

Completed and released on CD

"Luther" is a new project where I try to musically interpret the historical person.

 

Luther ended up in a tough confrontation with his church. He reacted strongly to the greed and corruption that ruled the people in fear of hellfire and also the institution variety of penal methods. He longed for a direct contact with God and that people could have that relationship without the wall who took charge for the contact with God.

 

I hope no one takes offense, it's not my idea of hurting someone's faith. The project is an interpretation of what is historically documented. I have visited the Vatican City and recently Wartburg, where Luther translated the New Testament,. And it has been the inspiration for this.

Briefly: memories from the beginning.....

My father is a musician and there for we had alot of music instruments in my parental home. He wanted me to become a violin player, but my favorite was the electric organ. So i guess it started there.

When I heard the reccord Oxygene with Jean Michel Jarre for the first time something happennd inside me. It was like open new doors for me and I knew that i had to have synthesizers. But synthesizers are very expensive things for a teenager. I was a student and I didn't have that money so the music store became my second home. I remember when I finally could afford it, and when I had equipment at home - A day I'll never forget

 

Towards the Stars: An article about the composer

Johan Tronestam:

Influenced by the early synth masters, such as Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis and Tangerine Dream, as well as the progressive rock of Pink Floyd and Yes, Tronestam draws sounds from his synths that sweep like plasma fields projecting from the Sun or shift like the light of fading suns. The effect is neither entirely naturalistic nor abstract, but instils the feeling of moving through four dimensions in proximity to almost nothing else.
