I wrote a couple of pieces as a kid, when I was a nerdy guy who also played the piano.

Later, when I became a music student, I tried to arrange some jazz stuff, with not much luck. I didn't really know where to start.

But I had a really good harmony teacher at the conservatory who had found out the simple and essential part of writing, the same feeling I have when I sometimes draw, you get to a point where you simply take the pencil and do what you like to do, and even if the result is simple, it is what you wanted.

I hope you’ll enjoy this! It is also made with the intention of bringing people to music.

I like looking through passages, for instance open gates likes this one.

This is in Copenhagen, near the backside of the parliament.
