BANDS

 

DUMHETEN

dumheten-cover

Dumheten is a swedish band that are just as stupid as you are. Just as petty, just as narrowminded, just as naive, just as human. Dumheten (stupidity) celebrate our humanity, and everything that makes us human. Even though it might sound dumb, or maybe just because it does; we like to be stupid, and we like it when you are too.

Dumheten starts out in free, improvised music, but quickly moves on into a sound closer to popmusic. With trombone, sax, vocals and piano, the music is full of air and hopes, whispers and dreams. Sometimes it’s stupid and sometimes it’s not, but it’s always from the heart, and it’s always very human.

 

Dumheten are: Cornelia Arvidsson – Vocals, Joel Lindblom – Trombone, Erika Lindholm – Saxophone, Erik Slättberg – Piano

ERIK SLÄTTBERG – SEARCHING FOR HOME

My own solo piano album, where I explore the boundaries between jazz, pop and classical music. A personal portrait, mostly with my own compositions. Listen to it on Spotify.

 

HELLO OCEAN

In Hello Ocean the styles pop and singer/songwriter blends together, with influences from country and blues. The Duo have found an expression combining both a raw nerve and high musicianship. Hello Ocean was founded in spring 2017 and are at the moment in the phase of recording their first album. With songs about the small and the big, love and sorrow, and the inner and outer world, the music rarely leaves someone untouched. Look for updates on our Facebook page!

SLÄTTBERG TRIO

Together with Martin Bohman (Bass) and Max Häggberg (Drums) we play contemporary jazz. Original music with both the compositions and the improvisation in focus. Style-bending, open-minded music, combined with a traditional jazz piano trio line up. A very fresh project! No music out so far. Here’s a little preview so far, more stuff coming and info coming up later.

Clips of other music i’m playing on. Most of it own compositions, unless other is not noted by title.

BIO

”One of the greatest things I think one can experience is to be part of growing process of another human being. Music is a great way to grow – not just in your musicianship but also as a human being”

erik-uce05

I was born in the west coast of Sweden in 1989. I started playing guitar at the age of thirteen, but realized years later that piano was really my true calling. The great control over harmony, to fill up and to have an instrument so connected to composition made piano a simple choice. After many years of practice and ten years of music study I now live outside Örebro in Sweden, working as a piano teacher and musician.

As a musician, it doesn’t matter that much what kind of music I play as long as I like it. Although in my case this often end up in finding new ways combining styles into new ways. Improvising lies close to my heart and what i do often end up to be a mix jazz, pop and classical music, although as a musician I work with a lot of different stuff.

Music is with me in all aspects of my live. Sometimes it’s beautiful, sometimes it is funny, introspective, calm, wierd, groovy, dark, pleasant or in any other way interesting. For me, music as a language – a language where I have the ability to communicate that which might not always be expressible in words. Which makes it a pretty cool language I think. And maybe necessary in a time where the human world of thought seem to control everything.

Both as a musician and as a teacher I found that most of the joy lies in being a part of the journeys of other human beings, and to contribute to their growth. Through this I grow myself, and become better at what I do. I have a large interest to teach – both myself and others.
