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.
