“Anything Goes As Long As It Is Outrageous”

My youngest brother all of a sudden appeared yesterday with a blank cardboard and tried to convince us that this was some sort of art piece.

We of course played along with his trolling and praised the work since we feel very strongly that it would do well over at Tate Modern or any other contemporary art gallery.

Since the surface was left blank it inspired me to quote one of my own lyrics, so I have now ironically turned this artwork into my own, displaying how an art piece can become a multi-art-concept by belonging to several individuals simultaneously, who’s interpretation of possibility might clash, reflecting the vulnerability of existence and natural tension contained within individualistic interpretation and expression.

The blank, empty surface was declared a work of art by my brother, my black and white photo of it can also be perceived as art, so me writing on it digitally now shows how one idea can turn to three.

Now it certainly belongs among the classics.

On the 20th of this month Norway’s equivalence of BBC aired a great program focusing on female guitar players! It was awesome to receive nationwide radio play for my metal & classical music!Β Hear The Interview Here!

I’m happy that I was asked about online haters & bullies, since this gave me the opportunity to highlight that I’ve seen other female guitar players complain about this as well. In short it means that you don’t stand alone if you are in the receiving end of putrid hatred as a woman playing the guitar. If you are self-critical and take what you are doing very seriously it is especially important to remember that hatred can come your way just because of your gender, because people don’t like your face, or your hair, or your outfit, or whatever; I know of course that there are people out there who complain about sexism when there is none and play the gender card just because; this is a pity because real sexism does exists and it should be addressed so that other women will know that they do not stand alone! Once again I am aware that this is a multifaceted issue … I just don’t want creative females to feel unwelcome or to be chased away from unleashing their musical creativity upon the world!

Thanks again to those of you out there who support what I do! I really appreciate it! πŸ™‚

 

Finally.

The loose threads will not be loose for much longer.

I look forward to releasing my 3rd body of work and I think that this will finally give people a full impression of who I am and what I can do as an artist!

I cannot wait! πŸ™‚ I feel very encouraged by the fantastic feedback that I’ve received so far! Now the challenge is to get people to hear about it & spread the word!

For those who’ve followed me since 2008 you might remember my very 1st music video & version of “Battle For The Mind,” in addition to my 1st version of “If The Dead Ones Could Talk.”

The sound and style changed drastically from those two 1st demos to my first Demo EP “State of The Union” in 2009, and my rock’n’roll changed and evolved further with my
“Battle For The Mind” Demo released in 2010.

There’s been a constant musical evolution first within heavy metal and then with the classical music, while there were other musical directions & ideas brewing in the background!

If anyone had told me back in 2005 that I would have ended up shredding violin virtuoso pieces on a 7 string guitar, while learning how to sing “Queen Of The Night,” in addition to changing my genres and alternating between songwriting styles, I would never have believed them! Not at all! Yet here I am.

I cannot believe how artistically and technically adventurous the choice of music turned out to be!

If I could turn back time I would still have pursued music, because I knew back then that if I had not, then I would have been haunted for the rest of my life by “what if?”

I had no idea that I had it in me to be a virtuoso. I started late. I was just going to write songs and be an artistic spirit.

Yet now I find myself here:

Who knows what the future might hold in store for me, but I hope that this is just the beginning. I have too much unreleased music and ideas that I want to put out there!

Thanks a lot to those of you who’ve supported my work! Please keep on doing it! πŸ™‚

Thank you!
