2020 was a year of exploring sound by approaching music which ended up in a release of the acoustic, experimental and ambient album Able to Land by MISOK (duo with Leif Jordansson).

During the spring 2021 I am preparing a sculptural graphic score and sounds installation that will be played and exhibited in May 2021 at Lokstallet in Strömstad, Sweden. I will also work on a cooperation together with the poet David Vikgren where sound art meets poetry.
