Dein Messer

Dein Messer is the german part of a forthcoming EP where lyrics with the same content will be performed in different languages in different songs. Enjoy the song in headphones to experience the binaural effects.

Dein Messer
in meinem Rücken
Dein Messer
in meinem Bauch
Dein Messer
für mein Glück
und deine Wohlstand auch

Was machst du?
Was machst du mit deinem Messer?
Was machst du?
Mit deinem kleinen scharfen Messer?

Ich fürchte für was du willst mit deinem Messer machen.
Einhundertachtzig Tage Leiden. Soll ich weinen oder lachen?

Musst du es?
Musst du es in mich stecken?
Musst du es
so tief in mich stecken?

Meine Gefühle sind widersprüchlich und komplex
Es ist zu meinem eigenen Besten wenn du es in mich steckst.

Din kniv

Din kniv is the Swedish sketch version of a song which might be translated to Spanish in the future. It is part of an upcoming EP where the same lyrics will be translated to different languages and become different songs.

Vad ska du göra?
Vad ska du göra med din kniv?
Vad ska DU göra?
Med din lilla vassa kniv?

Jag är rädd
för det du vill
göra med din kniv.
Men jag vet
att du vill göra DET
med din kniv.
84 stygn, 180 dygn.
För att du stack in den i mig.

Vill du sticka in den?
Sticka in den i mig?
Måste du sticka in den
i MIG?
Det är för mitt eget bästa
när du sticker in den i mig.

Jag är innerligt tacksam
för att du stack in den så djupt i mig.
Nu är jag hel.
I alla fall nästan.
80 % hel.
resten död.
Efter att du stack kniven i min rygg.
Inte på väg att gå sönder.
Inte på väg att dö

FM/PM

Song created in Reason Recon (the development testing environment for Reason). All synthesizer sounds comes from the self developed TZ1X, processed through Reason effects.

Frequency Modulation and Phase Modulation
have been proven mathematically to be the same thing
when it comes to sound synthesis.
There is one important difference though;
the explanation of Frequency Modulation contains several integrals,
while the explanation of Phase Modulation
makes perfect sense.

What is hate?

In May 2020, I missed my Yamaha TX81Z to such a large extent that I even considered connecting it as an external MIDI device in Reason. I felt that the amount of work (about 5 minutes) for this was overwhelming and started to search for Reason Rack Extension clones of the synth instead. One was promising, but lacked som details, so I decided to program my own rack extension. It started to sound really good a year later and now, another six months later, it’s pretty free from bugs. The synth is most famous for the bass sound C15 Lately Bass, which was used in several dance classics from the 90:s. What is hate? is a parody of one of these. To sing with two vocal cords feels a bit done, so I try to avoid it.

Several TZ1X original presets are used: Lately bass, Heavy metal, Funky pick, Dynomite EP. There is also a rolling sound. These sounds are presented after the song. Reason stood for drums, strings, reverb and delay

What is hate?
Baby, don’t kiss me
Don’t hug me
Again

Baby, just hurt me, convert me
in pain
What is hate?
Yeah

No, I don’t know why you should care
I give you my hate, when you’re not there
So what is left is just wrong.
Gimme your middle finger

What is hate?
Oh baby, don’t hug me
Please judge me
Again

What is hate?
Oh baby, just hurt me
avert me
Again

Whoa, whoa, oh
Whoa, whoa, oh

I think I know, what I should do
Just write it down, then it’s up to you
I know we’re two, just me and you
I can go on

What is hate?
Oh baby, just hurt me
Avert me
Again

What is hate?
Oh baby, don’t hug me
Don’t kiss me
Again

Whoa, whoa, oh
Whoa, whoa, oh

What is hate?
What is hate?
What is hate?
Oh baby, convert me
pervert me
Again

Don’t hug me
Don’t snuggle with me

I want to bother, your violent brother
This is his knife, his time
When we are together, he’ll beat me forever
Is it hate?

What is hate?
Oh baby, please hurt me
Convert me
in pain

What is hate?
Oh baby, don’t hug me
Don’t kiss me
again
Yeah, yeah

Whoa, whoa, oh
Whoa, whoa, oh

What is hate?
Oh baby, please hurt me
Torment me
Again

What is hate?
Oh baby, don’t hug me
Don’t kiss me
Ever again

Oh baby, just hurt me
Please hurt me
like before

Oh baby, just hurt me
Please hurt me
More and more
What is hate?

Såga ner en tuja

It started as a rolling bass line and a traditional drum pattern. As a placeholder name the song was named Såga ner en tuja (sawing down a thuja), which then was transformed to four less traditional drum patterns. Some of the drums were replaced and the original bass line was removed.

Requiem

A rather danceable version. V2.1.
Before you can sample the latin choirs you have to create and record them. V1.2.

A bunch of composers have taken the lyrics for the catholic death mass and created master pieces. This is Johan Jernstedt’s Requiem, also featuring Anna Lena and Alexandra (classic version).

(Parts of the traditional Roman Catholic Requiem)

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine;
et lux perpetua luceat eis.

Te decet hymnus, Deus, in Sion,
et tibi reddetur votum in Ierusalem.
Exaudi orationem meam;
ad te omnis caro veniet.

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine;
et lux perpetuam luceat eis. Domine!

Dies irae, dies illa
solvet saeclum in favilla,
teste David cum Sibylla.
Quantus tremor est futurus,
quando iudex est venturus,
cuncta stricte discussurus?
Tuba mirum spargens sonum,
per sepulchra regionum,
coget omnes ante thronum.
Mors stupebit et natura,
cum resurget creatura,
iudicanti responsura.

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine;
et lux perpetuam luceat eis. Domine!

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi:
dona eis requiem.
Agnus Dei,
dona eis requiem sempiternam.

Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine, cum sanctis
tuis in aeternam: quia pius es.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine;
et lux perpetua luceat eis. Domine!

Metoprolol dreams

My dreams are not really nightmares,
but they are
uncomfortable.
I keep running out of time,
not getting in time to
appointments or quite often
the toilet.

Another recurring dream
is that
I have forgotten to take my pills.
