New forum 


Posted at 13:22


i've just created a new Forum where you can start topics about anything (well, almost). i'll be writing a bit there now to get it started, but i still barely know how it works hehehe.....

forum.jcschutz.net

it's mainly because i want to have the opportunity to have more direct contact with those of you who wish. if you write there, i will reply. it's as simple as that....

so far i've been writing about the coming cd C'EST LA VIE, but there will of course be more in the near future. i'm also trying to change the default layout, because it's very ugly right now.

forum.jcschutz.net

anyone can comment, but to start new topics and stuff, you'll need to sign up for an account. of course it's free and it just takes a minute.

hope to see you there, and get to know a little more about you!

right now i added the background story to the CD cover of "Passion", with original images from the photo session, including the snow and ice in the background!

Another idea 


Posted at 02:12 under MUSIC, ART




here's another idea i've had for the album cover...... so far i'm sticking to the title "C'EST LA VIE", but it may still change. i'm kind of into black & white photos at the moment, so the cover may be completely in b/w.

Por favor 


Posted at 18:03 under MUSIC


while we all wait for my new cd to be finished i just want to share this song, "Por Favor" (Please) performed in the studio by the brasilian singer SIMONE. the song is written by Ivan Lins and Aldir Blanc, at first appearing to be simple. it's very effective and beautiful, and right now it makes my heart beat a little faster.

i really hope you like it!

Mixing 


Posted at 02:43 under MUSIC


the mixing is not completely done, so i will wait with posting the songs again. please enjoy these photos in the meantime, all taken during one of the days we were mixing, me and the highly talented mixing engineer Katarina Nilsson (who also was singing backing vocals on my BLISSA NOVA).

we also recorded a couple of minutes of video while we were mixing, and i have decided to add this to the documentary in the near future.


joy is important in work!

Photos 


Posted at 14:23 under MUSIC, OTHERS


we've started to mix my new album now, but i spent the past weekend relaxing, taking long walks with Timmy the dog by the Baltic Sea. i also got a bit red in the sun, because the last few days have been steaming hot with blue skies and pouring sun!

please enjoy these photos from the east coast of land:

All samples 


Posted at 03:45 under MUSIC


here are some new samples! please remember that the CD is not mixed yet, so this only shows roughly how it will be. all songs are included here, but not in any particular order.

#1
C'EST LA VIE

this is one of the four songs that will also be in english on the non-Swedish releases of the CD. this version has the piano part added.

#2
KAN VI HJLPA ATT VI LSKAR ATT DANSA
(We can't help it if we love to dance)

now complete with backing vocals (sung by Helena Soluna), and organ (played by Roman Andrn). i've also updated the drum tracks.

#3
JABUTICABA

now with nice backing vocals.


and here are the rest of the songs, but the samples are the same as before:

#4
SOM OM INGENTING HAR HNT
(As if it's never taken place)

this is one of the songs that will also be in english.

#5
DU DET R OKEJ
(Hey, it's gonna be okay)

this is one of the songs that will also be in english.

#6
SVAR
(Answer)


#7
HUR SKA MAN GLMMA
(How do you forget?)


#8
BALANS
(Equilibrium)


#9
ALLT HAR SIN TID
(Everything has its time)


#10
SKUGGOR
(Shadows)

previously called "Ett enda liv" (one life only). i've changed the lyrics a bit in the chorus, but you don't hear it in this version that is the old one.

#11
DET GR INGENTING - I GUESS IT'S OK
version in english =)

this is one of the four songs that will also be in english on the non-Swedish releases of the CD. it's the song i perform on the piano in the documentary.



oh yeah, same old advisory:

* vocals and some instruments are only Early Production Recordings and MAY CHANGE!
* this is only HALF-finished!
* several instruments are still missing!
* this is UN-mixed!
* this is only for you to follow the progress of the creation of my new album!
* this does not represent the sound quality of the album!

On its way 


Posted at 03:14 under MUSIC, ART


during the last weeks i've worked to finish the new CD, and i'll post some samples here tonight. but not of all the songs, as i'd planned, and promised - i'm sorry!

we'll soon begin the mixing, and i'll keep you updated. i'll try to post some photos as well from the process!

in the meanwhile, here's the first idea for the CD cover. please note, it's just my first spontaneous idea, and it may not at all look like this!

i still haven't decided if the title will be "BALANS" or "C'EST LA VIE"..... maybe "c'est la vie" fits more into the overall feeling of the album.

is it only me, or do i look like a young CHICO BUARQUE in this picture?!? i wish hahahaha

Ponto final 


Posted at 23:29 under MUSIC


i just have to show you this song, written and performed by a new friend of mine, VANESSA PINHEIRO.

she's from brasil, so this amazingly beautiful song is in portuguese.

i'm very happy that our paths have crossed!

VANESSA PINHEIRO - "Ponto Final"



=)

about the new samples from my new CD, i'll post all songs during this week... just have to put the finishing touch... we'll mix the album in the beginning of july, and i'll of course post new samples again after that, so you can hear the difference!

i think i'll name my third album "C'EST LA VIE", but i still have a couple of months to change my mind hehehe so we'll see!

=)
