Ambient Online Vol 4

The compilation Ambient Online Vol 4 is finally available on Bandcamp!

With over 11 hours (!) of new ambient music of all genres it's an amazing collection. Some of the most interesting contemporary ambient artists have come together to realize this huge project. My own contribution is called Unconditional and is a collaboration with Wolves and Horses from Belgium. I hope you enjoy it. We are very proud that the album reached Bandcamp top 3 in ambient when it was released.

Ambient Online is a community for ambient musicians and producers started by S1gns of L1fe a few years ago. Not only a place for vibrant discussions, it also releases compilation albums and hosts a podcast. Link:

First Collab Ever

I just finished work on my first collaboration ever! I have teamed up with Wolves and Horses to craft a slow-moving piece for the album Ambient Online Vol 4, scheduled for release in a couple of weeks.

I have shied away from collaborations earlier as I was not very comfortable with sharing a musical creative process with someone else. I'm a quite slow worker and the process is very much a combination of pedantic attention to details at the wrong time and ad hoc experiments. I imagined this wouldn't work too well with some else involved. Well, it seems I was wrong. Christian Saint-Viteux and I had a very good time sending files back and fourth between Sweden and Belgium, and we are both quite proud of the result. But don't take our word for it. Listen for yourself - I will let you know when the album is available on Bandcamp.

In the meantime you can listen to the very fine ambient work of Wolves and Horses on Soundcloud:

He is currently working on a new album, and will soon release an EP with his beautiful ambient on the Norwegian label Us As Effigies. Highly recommended.

My new album has done very well since its release in December. Thank you all for your support. Please keep playing my songs on Spotify! It really helps me keeping the creative work going. And if you've got a friend who needs a moment of stillness, I would be very grateful if you share a link to my music:

New Album: The Lightest Touch

I'm very happy to announce that my third album is out now!

With sparse soundscapes and beautiful melodies it goes searching for the stillness within us. This is ambient music for daydreamers, with lightly treading pianos, occasional whispering strings mixed with the noises of the world.

"An incredibly beautiful and very tasty slice of ambient pie from one of my favourite Swedish composers, Ingemar Holmlid (aka Imi Fal)." Myristica (Mei-Ling Grey), musician, UK
"Outstanding. A real pearl." Moisés Daniel, Mangalyan Records, France
"This reflective and melancholic piece is one of the true beauties to be encountered on Soundcloud. Deserves to be in a guilded frame. Simple yet so enriching as it reaches out to an inner place. Lovely." Neil William Holland, writer, UK

Released on Record Union and available now on Bandcamp and Spotify, with iTunes and Amazon to follow soon.

Elskavon - Laekkandi

Here is a recent favorite of mine, Elskavon from Minneapolis. With his beautiful and melodious ambient music, he takes me places I have never been to before. Highly recommended!

In The Valley Of Fallen Giants

One of my favorite places here in my hometown Göteborg is the valley called White Anemone Valley (freely translated from Swedish "vitsippsdalen") right next to our botanical garden. Except that it's a very beautiful place, for ecological reasons they leave dead old trees standing, eventually falling over by themselves. With 40 meter trees lying on the ground, you realize what giants they are, and with a few of them together, it creates a very special atmosphere.

Review on Meadow Music

There is a review of a couple of my tracks over at Meadow Music, a blog about Swedish music:
On the two last [songs] “Hymn for the Waiting” and “Sonder” he has developed his soundscapes further; it feels more vivid and richer in images, beautiful like sparkling morning dew in the light of early dawn.

Drizzle & Sand (Ambient Online Vol. 3)

The third volume of Ambient Online Compilation is now available for download on Bandcamp! A massive world-spanning collection of truly beautiful and diverse ambient music from some of the most interesting ambient artists today, including Ascendant and Massergy.

My own contribution is this previously unreleased track called Drizzle & Sand, a slow piano-based piece moving through a coastal landscape of early autumn, daydreaming of a lost summer.

Order here:

Volume 2 was Bandcamp's top-selling ambient album for some time, and I believe this volume will be even better!

Ambient Online is an online community for makers and producers of ambient music, started by S1gns of L1fe (Ascendant). It's a place for exchange of ideas, collaboration, critique and, perhaps most importantly, a positive and constructive environment for creative workers.
