Mixing and mastering of my upcoming CD / LP
Anders Bergcrantz was recently named the world’s best jazz trumpeter of 2015 by renowned jazz historian Arnaldo De’Soteiro in Los Angeles, United States. His next CD will be released under his own record label, Vanguard Music Boulevard, which over the years has released several highly respected and award-winning productions.

There is a large measure of telepathic music-making and interaction among the musicians.
Courses in musical performance related to The Royal Academy’s of Music project Live Musical Heritage
Most music, even fantastic gems, is left un-played, and is thus unknown to both musicians and audiences. This is particularly true of our Swedish music. The Royal Academy of Music’s unique initiative “Live Musical Heritage” aims to make available the hidden treasures of significant Swedish art music which today is very difficult to obtain and which is often in a deplorable physical condition (decaying paper, fading ink, etc.). This has meant that older Swedish music is not common today, bordering on non-existent, in the live repertoire in Sweden. Malmö Academy of Music is now planning as part of the subject Musical Performance to offer both a basic and an advanced course.
A phonogram production of Fanny Gunnarsson Quartet’s second record
The Fanny Gunnarsson Quartet is a Malmo band, whose personal and thoughtful texts link jazz and pop. Since the start in 2013 the band has released one record, “Same Eyes as You”, produced by the Swedish pianist Jan Lundgren. The record was well received among critics. Now it’s time for number two. Malmö-based Havtorn Records is meant to act as the record company and the recording will be made at Sunnanå Studios. The new music is composed for the Fanny Gunnarsson Quartet. Original music is a great way to renew a genre, in this case the jazz genre. This is done by drawing on influences from pop, film music and classical music with much experimentation.
Music at Ribbingsberg

Ribbingsberg is a venue for music and art with performances of high artistic level with space for great variation as well artistic imagination and playfulness, and where the participation of local artists is prioritised. The events are aimed at a mixed audience. Refreshments are served during the concerts which offer an opportunity for socializing with the artists themselves. The event is now opening up to a larger element of amateur participation and collaboration that are very inspiring and rewarding for everyone involved.
Language beyond language
Language beyond language is an investigative project as an audience version. It is a project about the music in the dialogue and about the dialogue in the music. By creating an interdisciplinary meeting in an experimental context where representatives from music, the visual arts, and literature join in with the audience to actively discuss and experiment with project ideas we hope to generate a new understanding and curiosity about communication between people as an artistic resource, and thereby strengthen and provide good examples of the role of artistic skills in social development.
The Malmö Academy of Music / Anna Cronberg
ET EXSPECTO (And I wait) is the name of a co-production between the Malmö Academy of Music wind and percussion instruments, and the Karlskrona Navy Brass Band. Together they form a symphonic orchestra of some 60 musicians, which allows for a repertoire that is very seldom performed because of its grand orchestral size. The aim is to offer an opportunity to thousands of concert-goers to listen to the rarely played works for grand brass bands: Olivier Messiaen: Et Exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum and Hector Berlioz: Grande Symphonie funebre et triomphale.
Dead Duck Industries AB/Daniel Hansson
Orchestral music at a professional level is a great source of joy, development and recreation. Unfortunately, it requires extensive resources that only major cities can provide. The region’s orchestras have limited capacity to tour in the provinces. There is, therefore, a lack of role models for young musicians and applications to the School of Culture’s orchestral instrument courses is declining. This pilot project aims to explore opportunities for smaller towns to develop orchestral art locally but with a regional platform, in collaboration with the municipal music schools.
Unheard of yesteryear
Swedish art music from the 17th century and onwards is largely forgotten and is today a hidden treasure, even for those who work professionally with music. By performing these unknown Swedish works we spread knowledge of our cultural history, and its links to Europe. By alternating musical works with interesting ideas from contemporary society, the audience receives a broader perspective and therefore a greater understanding and experience of the music.
