[aired] chasing an acting dream

Sandro Intervju from Oliver der Nederlanden on Vimeo.

Chasing Flight soundtracks an introspective interview with Swedish actor Sandro Khafor, shot by Oliver der Nederlanden and Magnus Lindkvist. Wish I knew Swedish, but the word for actor, skådespelare, is a sharp looking one.

drifting / spinning swedish chefs

Jonas Dahlbom and Pia Nilsson make up the Swedish chef duo of @fortheloveandfood. Dahlbom is a Swedish “Top Chef” and self-styled music enthusiast who plays Ace Frehely in a KISS tribute band called “Wicked Kisser” (as a rule, btw, Swedish heavy metal cover bands RULE).

The use my track Drifting Moon / Spinning Earth off Particle Theory (2014, freemusicarchive | bandcamp) to drive the video for their recipe of FLÄSKKÖTT, VITLÖK & SOJA (Pork w/ Garlic & Soy). It looks all caramelized and salty and sweet. All my fav modes, culinary and otherwise.

Dahlbom was Chef of the Year 1996 at the Swedish Championships in professional cooking and repped Sweden in the prestigious Bocuse d’Or 2005 World Championships in professional cooking, where he earned fourth place overall and won “Best fish dish.” He returned to the Bocuse D’Or this year as coach for Tommy Myllymäki, Sweden’s 2015 representative. He lives in Åre, Sweden, where he runs the restaurant “Dahlbom På Torget.” Soon, however, he is moving to Stockholm with his two kids and girlfriend “for new adventures.”

Dahlbom’s girlfriend, Pia Nilsson calls herself a “gypsy soul.” A former music student, she was born and raised in the small town of Linköping, Sweden. A 10-year veteran of the hospitality industry, she’s traveled the world as a part time model and bartender. In 2008, she found herself in Åre where she had spent many winters. In winter 2013/2014, she met Jonas and as she says, “fell head over heels in love with him. We share the same interest in the best things in life which [are] rock’n’roll, a tasty meal and being alive.”


kamikuma: remixes of The Know It Alls

kamikuma (natalia kamia), one my fav soundclouders, hails from Gothenburg, Sweden. “anything can be translated” says her profile, but let the mystery be for while and just absorb her work. she creates space within and around her sounds, which is a high calling, and results often in tracks that are as exhilarating as they can be challenging. she surprised me with remixes using my field recording of the bloomingdale’s flagship store on 59th street and lexington avenue in manhattan. the original field recording follows her notes below.

KAMIKUMA’S NOTES ON WINDOWSHOPPER:

Contemplating the machinery at a distance with a fascination of a voyeur.

I made two tracks – the first one is a hiphoplike cut and paste.This one is employing the natural groove of Zedkah’s track, with a mechanic beat at a low volume and panned away. It is more like a shopping reverie.
