Protect your Ears – PLEASE READ

Here I am looking all cool (or trying to) a couple of nights ago on stage in Barcelona. After that concert I had ringing in my ears for 36 hours. I am always very protective of my hearing, and I have managed to maintain it very well despite being around studios and stages ever since…


Change of Perspective

There is nothing in the whole world I love more than playing guitar. I often have to set an alarm while playing so as not to forget to eat or sleep. I never run out of ideas with the instrument and I never get used to it, no matter how many hours I spend on…


New Concert – Sala Monasterio, Barcelona

  Andre and his band will play a free concert this Thursday, Sept 28 at the famed Sala Monasterio in Barcelona, playing a shorter set, but still filled with songs from all his albums. Show starts at 10pm, so get there early! You will also get a chance to meet some of the coolest band…


Demos

As some of you know, I have been using my 4 track cassette deck exclusively to demo my next project. In a time of nostalgia and hipster sensibilities, you might think I’ve been reminiscing about my first steps into music production and decided to go back to my roots.

Cassini

It’s strange to feel sadness for what is, strictly speaking, not very different from a refrigerator or any other appliance. And yet, following Cassini’s descent into Saturn and its ultimate demise has indeed made me sad. I know there will be more missions (and even better machines that will send sharper pictures), but I will…


The Secret Project

Ever since becoming able to produce and release my own music about 10 years ago, I have been toying with the idea of writing and releasing copious amounts of material on a regular schedule. Something like a musical journal, where maybe I could release a song a week or something along those lines. There is…


YouTube

I’ve been noticing a lot of creative people abandoning or at least putting YouTube to the side in the last few months, and I’m glad they are taking their time to create content and abandoning the unhealthy pressures of always putting themselves out there. But it does come to a point where you must ask…


My Failure

I’m sure you have all been waiting for the promised account of one of my latest failures. If you haven’t read my previous post on Failure, please go check it out. This is a great example of an endeavor that has indeed failed (so far) to achieve the level of impact I was hoping for,…


Failure

Failure and rejection are common occurrences in a musician’s life. I quite often get emails by aspiring musicians who feel dejected by the seemingly endless row of disappointments they have been accumulating. I will share one or two of my failings in a future post, but for now I want to give a little advice…
