The exhibiton Soul Tattoo part I

Welcome to the exhibition Soul Tattoo.

There’s an online gallery on this adress:

And this is the trailer for the exhibition:


Sound design for the film SOUL TATTOO

Some pictures from the my studio that I share with artist Susanne Hedman. It’s basically a small office space for preproduction, writing and printing photograhs, so it isn’t that easy to record sound in there. To be able to make foley and sound effects for the film Soul Tattoo (2014), me and Alex Holm had to set up a sound studio.

In the smaller room one of the microphones under some textile (used as pop filter). Alex is working with some sound editing.


Tibetan singing bowl used for the sound in the film.


A very short video from the concert Rain that shows some of the videos projected during the rehearsals. I worked with this videos for a few weeks. It was difficult to film rain but I’m quite pleased with the results.                                                                                     (There’s no sound in the video).

First picture from the film The soul is a tree

I’m making a trailer for a short film called The soul is a tree. Don’t confuse it with the exhibition The soul is a tree which will start the 17th of September in Vasa, Finland. But since the theme is the same in the exhibition as in the film I choose to use the same title for both. The film will hopefully evolve into a longer project, but films cost money to make so lets see what happens with this one. Financing is every filmmakers nightmare! No money no film. Let’s hope for the best this time.

I will upload more pictures later. Click for larger view.Actress: Carla Fri.
