#TJUVSTART

The year started out with recording and mixing the sound for the first #tjuvstart video at the Flekkefjord kultursenter.


 The culture center opens this coming fall, and we are a group of volunteers that have created a series of videos to promote the coming center and to raise money in the process. so far 10 videos have been released I have recorded and mixed the sound on Ingrid Frøsland, Frisk Bris, Playboys, Bente Torgersen, Thale Log Skage and Myrulls videos.  you can watch them all here.

Here is the video we did with my daughter Thale and I:

Parallell with the Joe Rusi project, I was involved in writing and recording for the new reidar Larsen album, 3 of my song made it to the album and I play guitar on most of the tracks. The album is mainly recorded at Rediar Larsens studio in stavanger, but I also did the guitars for  the songs I wrote at my home studio. Producer for the album was Sverre Erik Henriksen. The Album was called "blåtonar fra bakrommet"  ( bluenotes from the backroom) and was released  in september. 

we did som nice gigs this summer with  Kongsberg Jazz festival as the pinnacle, The ad hoc project "Norwegian blues Caravan" did 2 gigs this summer, witch was great fun. NBC was Reidar Larsen and his band with Vidar Busk, Dr. Bekken, Hungry John, Daniel Eriksen and Rita Engedalen.
