  • New studio desk

    After removing my tonsils, I’ve had to do as little as possile and relax as part of my recovery. Today I could not resist building a new desk for my studio. Procrastinate no more! I had a couple of IKEA night tables which I put some wheels on, bought an old coffee table and some…

  • New member in the family

    Korg MS-20 mini, you’re great! Welcome to my studio. Here it’s connected through Electro Harmonix Micro Synthesizer and Moogerfooger Low Pass filter. Rumble and joy – oh boy, it’s fat!

    It’s starting to look like a decent studio. There’s been a lot of work lately, which has had to be prioritized over my studio. Spring cleaning soon!
