I have written and released three music records since 2016, all available on Spotify. They contain experimental-but-catchy tunes that circle around ideas of masculinity and martyrdom, community, conflict reportage, compromise and idealism, love between men, shame, loneliness, diplomacy, magic and queer intimacy. They came into being from my long standing, critically artistic engagement with the Danish Armed Forces. I am interested in using music within the context of contemporary art, to hint towards a moment after purely discoursive and deconstructive methodologies. Dissatisfied with strictly conceptual and/or relational practices, I aim towards building a regenerative praxis in which dirty, passionate bodies collides with the superiority of the intellectually academic.
