Dear Usher

Dear Usher,
some years ago I found an acapella of your song “Yeah!”. I heard so much harmonies in that vocal and I did a remix.

I daydreamed that you came to my apartment in Lund, Sweden, and we wrote music.
 When I listen to your records I hear such a strong connection to what I do musically.
Last year I wanted to prove to my friend, rapper Timbuktu, that I could take a sound that he hated, a sampling of the Shakuhachi flute, and turn it into a beat that he would headnod to. I actually fooled him into digging that sound. Then I heard it: This is the music I would love you to sing on.

Please do.

Best Regards
Voz Vibrante

Music and daydreams

As long as I have been doing music I have been daydreaming. When I was 13 I imagined that I met Nick Rhodes, the keyboard player in Duran Duran. He was so arty. I had seen pictures with him and a camera. I also wanted to try all art forms. I combed my hair just like him, as much as possible over the head.
As a grown up I have spent a lot of time doing beats, imagining my favorite vocalists singing over my music.
I might have a certain success as a musician but these daydream beats still lie around in my computer and none of the world’s finest singers has ever sung with that music.
So I decided to write open letters to my dream co-operators and putting the music out there. You will simply have to imagine the singers or rappers and enjoy the music as it is now.
When I told my friend Johanna about this project, she called me en handlingens drömmare, which is about the nicest review I ever got; A doer-dreamer. Only, I don’t always do what I dream. Maybe to write a letter is a good way of connection the doing with the dreaming? This is what I will explore with this blog.
