On September 27, I will play a duo concert with laptop musician Per-Anders Nilsson at Brötz in Gothenburg. The concert starts at 8 pm.
I have played with Per-Anders on numerous occasions. In May 2005 we did a small tour in California (read more about the tour here). He is a versatile musician with a great interest in using the laptop as an instrument - that is to really <emplay</em> the laptop. Consequnetly he has developed techniques to allow him to do exactly that.
