Occupying a most tangible presence in my everyday ideas, light and light conditions is to me a pleasant connector to virtually any number of phenomena. It is meant to fill a meaning in relation to the music, to be the vague title on an otherwise unwritten page. Strange Light Music was made deliberately slow to test the patience and curiosity of the listener. It is an EP in songs, an album in playing time. After many years of demo-making, it is my first record of progressive pop. Released on March 7, 2014 on my own label bearing the same name. Cover art: “Gryning III” by Emma Lindström
