My music on a weird film from Brazil

A track that I had posted on my page at FREESOUND, that was called Koran Cats and Kids, has been used on this film by bagadefente in Brazil!!!

HURRAH, funny film too.. half the sound is from MY track, (including ominous out of tune piano, and pitch shift child, which I think is my step-granddaughter Lona) and the other half is a recording of a children´s toy… that actually we have too!! ha ha!!!


I´m pretty prolific now huh? This movie was shot late in 2007, and the music comes from last year sometime. The whole edit took about 2 hours, and most of that was colourising. I am very proud of it, I love to throw things together and see what magical things happen. In this case we start with various shots of show, including one timelapse shot where I went outside and dumped the camera on the car roof. Look closely and you can se the heat of the camera melt the snow, and “settle the camera”. There is footage shot on my tram ride to work, and it culminates in shots of the chrismas tree. So we can say that this film shows the last day before Christmas.

COLD – New film on You Tube

Here is a new film, Shot last Winter at Sognsvannen in Oslo. It starts slow with film of crows in a tree, then gets fast as we walk for 2 hours around the lake, then, after a long cold day, I relax at home. A typical Norwegian Winters Day. The Music is taken from my 2005 album Ear Nose and Throat, and is called “And” Available on CDR with lavishly printed grotesque sleeve from this sites very boutique, or from your friendly neighbourhood ITunes Store.

Nikolas makes his first film.

I have also uploaded the first film from my 2 and a half year old son. Everything was shot by him on a stills camera and I helped him make the photos into a movie.

THE BEAST, Now on YouTube

There is The Beast, a very scary horror film shot in Denmark. It is based on an experience I had while recording some audio on my new H4 recorder. I had heard the neighbour playing violin faintly from the next door Holiday Chalet (we were on holiday) and while recording I heard a rustling in the tres to my left… Suddenly there was a low growl and I ran… accidentally stopping the recording as I went. Heres the recording.
And here is the film.

Mise en Scene

An on the road documentary, or rockumentary if you will of one of the hardest working rock band of our time… Spinal Tap.. I mean “The Cranes”

I shot this during the short tour of Holland in 1991. It was kind of a warm-up tour for the big show at the Paradiso, which was recorded on a 24 track mobile and filmed for MTV. I then edited the gig footage that the TV company shot, and later put this together with Nick out of all my VHS and Super 8 stuff.

My god it was 20 years ago!
