Ögat is one of Gothenburg’s coziest little venues is fighting for its survival. Digital gigs are not really my thing, but tomorrow I will be part of this livestream to support them to pay the rent. Can’t live with yet another live venue disappearing from this city without first trying everything I can to not to let it happen. There will be an varité with a surreal touch. With a lot of fantastic artists from different genres.
Just press the link. Its free to go in and listen and if you have some extra money to spend please donate for the survival of the genuin Gothenburg live scen.
I´m am collabarating with Mika Satomi in the project Magtronics. Its an ongoing experiment with an e-textile costume and a body gesture music controller for the my new performance. Magtronics is an instrument and costume at the same time.
follow the progress in our blogg.
Here´s a video of trying out the Magtronics.
My first show with live audience since covid 19 took over the world got two really great reviews in the musicmagasin Undertoner (in Danish) and and Hymn (in Swedish)
“The most thrilling and groundbreaking musical artist we have seen all year, MAG is going to be making her glorious noise in all the right places in the next twelve months and will be the next chapter in Gothenburg’s bourgeoning underground scene to make an international impact and is further proof of the importance of places like Truckstop Alaska and their cultural powerhouse importance. An importance that serves as a notice to the pen pushers in local councils that city centres have to have a mixed use if they are to stay alive.
For every glass tower that gets constructed it’s well worth keeping the battered sheds of art and creativity next to them to add colour, life and a sound track and a magnetic pulse to the 21st century city centres. An artist like MAG adds more to Gothenburg’s story and to our lives than yet another overpriced flat. ”

A little bit late, but memories from the MAG summer tour are still burning inside me. So I want to shout out a big THANK YOU!
To all of you that came to my shows and gave back all that great energy. (Wow, so much good respons. I’m still flying.)To all great musician, who’s music I got the experience when we shared the evenings.-To all nice people I met during this journey that showed me your countries, your art, your music, your special food, your soldering trix, your toxic and edible plant skills and so much more.To all you heroes that fighting for a rich culture life that booked me and made this long tour possible. Its been inspiring in so many levels.
16 cities, 12 shows, 6 counties in 6 weeks. Total distance 10.210 km.
And yes it´s possible to tour in Europe with train. Just takes a little more effort but it definitely makes your arms stronger and we all need to do what we can, to stop the global warming. So come on everyone don´t be scared and take the challenge and you will experience the beautiful landscape of Europe through the window at the same time before its to late.
