Title Published Genre Picture
I Still Love you



In April 2024 Dave (Sprout) posted a song "I still Love You". I loved the melody and it stayed in my head for weeks and I kept on going back to listen to it.
Finally I asked Dave for permission to make a cover version which he accepted. Here is the result.

Music and Lyrics: Sprout

Punk Moments



It is time for a little style change. You may think "He forgot to take his pill" when you hear this.

Years ago I wrote a song called Moments That Matter as a request from my wife for a work event. And later I made a version for my own work place. The lyrics were sort of corporate BS. So I also made a punk version just for fun. It was never published because I did not know how to make distorted guitar sound right. I have since learned. Power chords! That is the secret.

I had a lot of fun making this including the horrible picture of me as an angry old punk. I hope you get the humor. And as Billy Joel sang - "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me".

I'd better take my pill now

Circle Dance (Acoustic Orchestra)



Genre this time is folk music with a Nordic sound and feel. A folky tune that would be great to grab each other in the hands and dance in a large circle. Like I experienced people doing in Barcelona when they dance the Sardana.

You should also check out the new synth/acoustic 2024 version

Circle Dance 2024



Genre this time is folk music with a Nordic sound and feel. I use a mix of traditional instruments, synth, and voice. The rhythm is slow (75 bpm) and strong but without heavy drum beating. A folky tune that would be great to grab each other in the hands and dance in a large circle. Like I experienced people doing in Barcelona when they dance the Sardana.

I originally published this in 2013. In 2024 I created two versions. This one is a completely new version with better instruments and better mixing and mastering.

You should also check out the acoustic version

Spring 2024



Back in 2015 on iCompositions JCLeonard and I did a collaboration. He posted a beautiful track for open collab. A classical style piece with a lovely simple progression and nice harmonies and decorations by a piano and bells. When I heard it, a melody started forming in my head and I knew I had to record it.

The thing with open collabs is that it is always a patch work and choice of instruments and the chords, the harmonization, may not fit the melody perfectly. I always wanted to redo the harmonization and write a chord progression that fit the melody better and also to arrange the orchestra and remove elements that never really fit my melody.

So here is Spring in a 2024 version, completely rewritten and rearranged.

So here it is. A slow elegant piece that describes the wonderful spring that we are in the middle of. My favourite time of the year.

Time (vocal version)



I have earlier posted an instrumental version of this song and I always promissed myself that I would write lyrics for it.

I take a long time to write lyrics. Especially this song took time because I had a clear idea what I wanted to say in the song and it was difficult to find the right words. But here it is.

A piece with huge orchestration. One of those that took quite some time to make. Originally made in 2019. I remixed it and replaced some sound libraries in 2023. And in 2024 I added the lyrics and recorded it. The voice is Kevin from Synth V.

Where To Find Me



Where to Find Me

Night At The Lake



This piece tells the story of walking around a lake in the forest in the middle of the night. We hear the animals. Then the early morning begins and finally the sunrise in its glory.

The night piece is a string instrument and flute. Then as the twilight begins the main theme is played on piano and as at the sunrise we hear the full orchestra.

I hope you enjoy the trip

Sophisticated Hoods



A new song written by Stan Loh. Stan sings, plays guitar, and also provided a drum track. I added two additional guitars, acoustic double bass, a synth based on vocal sample, and some percussion. And I mixed the result.

The Joys Of Life



Stan writes:
A reflective song about love life. Kenneth Lavrsen developed, arranged, and did all the instruments in this wonderful backing.

Hymn of Peace 2023



This is a new version of a song I posted in 2012. A simple song with simple melody, simple chords, and a simple message. I always wanted to repost this song one day with actual lyrics. The occation is that we need peace right now more than ever. Voices are a mix of AI voices and my own voice.

Rhône



Rhône is a song I have been working on since 2014. It started as a chord progression and a theme which is still in the final version. What took time was to arrange it and add additional themes so that the song got the variations and development that makes it worth listening to.

Rhône is one of the main rivers in France and Diane and I love to visit the wine districts along the river and drive around in the French Alps

The Perfect Couple



The Perfect Couple. That is Diane and I naturally. This song started by making some fun chord progression with several key changes. And then I bought Synthesizer V - a fantastic vocal synth software. And as I played with it making rubbish lyrics, the whole thing ended up with this result. Some background. When I do not make music, I automate things in our house. The geek! And the suitcase story goes back 10 years where Diane had been travelling and she woke in the middle of a nightmare where she dreamt that she had lost her suitcase. At the same time I played with music in Garageband on my iPad and the very first primitive song I did was called "Where is my suitcase?" which I never published. I hope you have as much fun listening to this as I had making it. The singers are Synth V voices Solaria and Kevin

Idea



It started as a musical idea.
And it ended with a lot more ideas
And the title became Idea

The Night



It has been a year since I released a song.
This has been worked on for a long time and what started as a Banjo country inspired song ended up as an upbeat synth instrumental

Everyday Hero



Everyday Hero was composed with a dear friend and colleague in mind. A special one that put his own health at risk to help me when I needed help. A friend that waited for me in a hospital waiting room till 4 AM in the morning.

Thank you, my everyday hero. You know who you are

Charming



Charming is the working name of this song. It ended up as a complete mess of genres and there is no story behind it. So charming it is. It starts jazzy and ends up as a 4 to the floor banger.

Tapas Tapas Tapas



This track is inspired by Spanish music. It starts with an Andalusian cadence but then develops all over the place.
When Diane and I were in Sevilla (Andalusia, Spain) in 2003 we heard the restaurant waiters calling for the tourists passing by shouting "Tapas, Tapas, Tapas".
And yes we love tapas and we had a lot of tapas.

The Little Things



This is an instrument slow tempo pop song. The title is the work title I started with. The little thing in life that matters.
