I am a guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and composer. My work covers a broad spectrum of styles, instruments and live-electronics. Based in Malmö/Copenhagen my main work is within the groups Lur, Faela, Nuaia, Helt Off and The Madmans Moustache. I also compose, record and perform live-music for theatre, contemporary dance, circus and performence art.

2017


During a year I´ve been working on a solo set with synths, live electronics and midi-controlled light bulbs and 2017 I´m open for booking requests.

Music in between lush soundscapes, cinematic harmonies and heavy rhythmic structures.



I´m in the middle of music making and sound designing for SAVN. Premiere in Copenhagen 15/11!

LUR are really happy to present our music in “Svea Rikes Lag” at Teater 23 in Malmoe!

A little glimpse from our China tour with LUR earlier this year:

 


Written about the Faela album “Por el Mundo” I recorded and produced:  

“Hela skivan är oerhört detaljrik och välproducerad, med ett myller av slagverk, snygga trombonriff, baktaktsgitarrer, klaviaturer och förstås Hugo Coronels röst längst fram. Lyssningsvärt!”

– Rasmus Klockljung, Lira, 2016

 


Rehearsals from Albin & Mika!
