Late 70´s: Started right out with experimental music, first instrument.. the tape recorder. Band - Uncle Ian

Early 80's: Got Acoustic guitar, stuck a pickup on it, bought synths... learned a guitar scale, Big into electronic music Tang dream / Hawkwind / Caberet Voltaire /Throbbing Gristle - Band - Uncle Ian, got into Eno 2 tape machine looping.

Late 80´s: Industrial /Indie. Band - Cranes / Eardrum

Early 90's: Toured the world and beyond, spent years in studios, famous for 15 mins. Getting into Computers for techno Bands Cranes /Eardrum

Late 90´s: The Noise scene, Black metal influences (had moved to Norway) pure electronics + digital looping using multiple hold pedals, later Vortex. Band - God.com

Early 00's: The Looping obsession. Got Repeater then EDP. Band, solo music only.

Late 00's: More looping, More EDP's, now with  more improv with other musicians, more noise, more post effects. Solo, + many many Improv units
