having a lot of idle time. I can't think of a better way to use
that time than for creativity,
and BAM is the ideal place to try out and capture creative ideas.
So, come on over and
get going. We're open for business and offer a 20% "Corona"discount

Peart is no longer with us - Farewell to a King!
strange how you anticipate a new year with optimism and curiosity,
only to find it
beginning in the worst possible way. Leaning the news of Neil
Peart succumbing to
brain cancer was a punch in the gut. I wasn't even aware he was
ill, and it took me a
fair amount of time to realise that he was really gone. How could
As easy as it is to feel sorry for yourself losing a lifelong
idol, a companion, musically
and lyrically, through confusing teenage years, and an inspiration
all the way til today,
I have even more trouble dealing with the incredibly unfair share
of pain, loss and
suffering that Neil was handed. It's just heartbreaking. I also
feel very strongly for his
bandmates Alex and Geddy who built and shared their whole lives
I can't even begin to imagine their sense of loss.
My deepest sympathy goes out to Neils family.
and Rush will be sorely missed, but their music lives on and will
continue to marvel
and inspire new listeners and old fans alike. With so much accomplished
documented, there's a fantastic treasure of songs, videos and
books to visit and revisit.

you Neil Peart for everything!

Yellow Lounge and Sweden Top 100!
week of contrast indeed. Thursday 10th of January, O-Baren/Sturehof
hosted the first ever Yellow Lounge session in Sweden. It also
was the first session ever to be webcasted live worldwide. The
Yellow Lounge is a concept created by Deutsche Grammophon to promote
classical music in new settings such as clubs, in order to reach
a new and possibly younger audience.
Anticipation with eveyone involved was of course high and we did
not get dissapointed. World class british voilinist Daniel Hope
together with legendary italian composer Ludovico Einaudi delivered
a fantastic 2-set show with supporting members of the Royal Philharmonic
Orchestra. Mixing over the headphones, while providing 2 live
mixes for the venue is of course far from ideal. but appart from
some interference in the wireless talkback mic, it turned out
quite nice. You can watch the show here
As a contrast I found out that
Sweden Rock Magazine just published their new issue with the list
of Swedens top 100 rockbands based on a readers poll. Included
with the magazine was also the split CD single with no 1 and 2
in the poll, Candlemass and Entombed, that I recorded at the end
of 2012 were they perform one song from each other. Scrolling
down the complete list I was happy to find that I have worked
with no less than 11 of the bands there, not least the top 3,
Candlemass, Entombed and Europe. You can see the complete list
On the list I have worked with the following bands in the studio
and/or for liverecording

year, new gear!
happy new year to all friends out there!
2012 ended in an unusually
intense way. In parallell to designing and installing the multi-purpose
sound system for Taverna Brillo, a brand new sister restaurant
to Sturehof/O-Baren and Riche also at Stureplan downtown Stockholm,
I recorded Candlemass and Entombed for a single to be included
with a new issue of Sweden Rock Magazine.
In mid-October I had a very entertaining and inspiring 2-day
tracking sessions with Alan Atkisson, an american singer/songwriter
living nearby me. We first met over 10 years ago and Alan has
over the years built up a collection of great songs, just waiting
to be recorded. We started out in small scale a year or so ago,
and it's just getting better. On this occassion I had called in
my friends Mats Nilsson on bass and Micke Ajax on drums, and the
session came out fantastic. The plan is to finalize the project
before summer. Earlier in the fall I had the pleasure of mixing
5 songs from the Band of Horses show at O-Baren in September for
Sony/Spotify. After getting the bands blessing for the final mixes,
the songs were made available as "The Spotify Sessions",
so check it out, they came out pretty nice.
At Christmas I felt I had well earned some new toys, and so I
decided to enter the "500-format" for API's lunchbox.
I got myself a pair of Lindell 7X compressors, 2 PEX Pultec style
eq's. I also was curious about Elysia and their Xpressor stereo
comp and the Nvelope. I got an API 6B lunchbox with room for one
of the two Elysia units, but after trying them out I think I'll
keep them both as they sound and feel fantastic. There's something
about good quality outboards that just can't be duplicated in
a plug (did I say that?). The PEX eq's haven't landed in the studio
yet, but if they're as good as the 7X's, I know I'll love them.
Something tells me 2013 is going to be good.....
September 24th, 2012
At the very beginning of summer,
I had the pleasure of attending the Candlemass releaseparty on
June 5th at Debaser Slussen, Stockholm. I was honoured by Leif
and the rest of the band with a rare and beautiful vinyl version
of "Psalms for the Dead" for my work recording the album.
It is said to be their last and it was a thrill to be part of
it and to contribute to it's apparent success in whatever way
I could. I didn't get to see them perform that evening as I was
doing livesound for Jake Samuel of he Poodles, who happend to
have his releaseparty at O-Baren that very same night. In any
case it was
a good start of the summer.
started with a bang. Loads of work both in the studio, and at
O-Baren. On September 10th, we were happy to see 3 of the guys
from the Band of Horses here for a promotional visit. For me,
that meant doing live sound for them at the Spotify head office
in the morning, and a fantastic showcase at O-Baren the same evening.
Their new album "Mirage Rock" is fantastic, so check
'em out if you havenät heard them. Really nice and easy going
guys on top of that!
the studio I've been doing some work with legendary guitar blues
man Mats Ronander during the summer, and which I hope to do soon
again. I also recorded the rhytm tracks for a full album of progressive
rock by the Schelander brothers which came out real nice. I also
recorded a contribution to the swedish Eurovision contest by the
band Captain Blackbeard, and some vocals for writer/producer Natanael.
April 20th, 2012
I'm proud to announce the introduction
of YMF, short for Your Music Factory. This is a new project aimed
at writing and producing original music for marketing, media,
events and artists alike. YMF is a collaboration between me and
and Mats Nilsson, an old friend and fellow musician. We once played
together in Boxer (with Matti Alfonzetti, Antonio Saluena and
Jocke Uddling) as well as in other constallations. Mats is a formidable
bass player and a seasoned arranger and producer. Currently we're
working on our first project with a top client. Check out the
background of YMF at www.ymf.se

Fergusson & Michael Kiwanuka
2 days in a row we had great
artists from the U.K. visiting Stockholm and O-Baren. First, on
February 1st, British X-Factor artist Rebecca Fergusson did a
great showcase. The day after, Michael Kiwanuka hosted an intimate
and soulfull showcase. Of course the joint was packed and no one
left untouched by this new and very charismatic singer. Mr Kiwanuka
also attended Skavlans talk show broadcasted the day after.
January 10th, 2012
back in business!
After a well earned vacation
during the holidays, I'm back in the office for a fresh 2012.
If I thought the White Flame sessions where intense, the 2 weeks
with Masters of Doom, Candlemass put them to shame. But, we pulled
it off! I just spoke to Mr Laney who's mixing it, and he's nearly
done. And, he's extremely happy about it and how it sounds on
the way in, making his job all the more fun and easy. I think
I'll sneak over for a preview, or rahter, prehear. In any case,
it was a lot of fun as always with these guys and whish them all
the best for this their final escpade.
Mr Lowe in the vocal booth, dooming!
November 15th, 2011
The session with White Flame
was an intense and fun 12 days. Reports has it that the album
is now mixed and mastered, and I'm of course eager to check out
the result. A second collection of songs from Candlemass has also
been tracked as part of their preparations for the new album up
for recording at BAM early December. At O-Baren I've also tracked
some live gigs for Universal as well as Librah and Gustaf Törling
September 18th, 2011
recording, and some mixing!
2011 has really seen a boost
in business at BAM. If it's due to the recent installation of
a SSL AWS900 console I'm not sure, but it is indeed inspiring.
Presently I'm finishing projects with Doghouse and Blackshine,
both full album productions. Also mixing for the USSR some really
nice popsongs for a new client. Last weekend I did some pre-production
recording for Doom legends Candlemass as a preparation for their
new album to be recorded by the end of this year. Also, a couple
of weeks ago, Ian Haugland of Europe came by and naild 5 tracks
for a new, secret project. This was the first in a series of projects
in collaboration with producer Chris Laney, soon to be followed
by Finnish band White Flame. The recording of their album begins
on September 26th.
I've also made some new additions to the hardware arsenal such
as a couple of Beyer M-160's, AKG 271 mkII headphones and a new
headphone amp. I also found a vintage tube for my Rode NTK LDC,
a 1963 Valvo/Phillips tube that should sound really sweet!
Ian Hauland letting it out at BAM!

BD/DVD no 1 in Swedish sales chart!
Just got the news that the
new Europe live-BD/DVD reached no 1 in the Swedish sales chart,
taking over first position from AC/DC "Live at River Plate",
and before names like Foo Fighters and Bruce Springsteen. Nice!

Europe live up for release!
On June 15th the recently recorded
concert from legendary London venue Shepherds Bush is up for release
on BlueRay and DVD. Also included is a concert recorded at Hovet,
Stockholm Christmas 2009. Both recording where made by BAM as
well as mixing of the Stockholm concert. Both concerts includes
most of the classics together with new material fron the recent
"Last look at Eden" album.
Shepherds Bush, London, U.K.
At the studio both new and old clients enjoy the sound and ergonomics
of the newly installed SSL console. Recently Krux, a sideproject
of Candlemass leader Leif Edling, laid down the basic tracks for
a new album. The band were especially impressed with the drumsound
captured downstairs @ BAM. The project will now proceed in various
project studios and is to be finished at the end of the summer.
Dog House, a Stockholm band, made a "live in the studio"
recording of some 8 songs recently. The method, which I encourage
all true rockbands to employ, combines the advantages of top notch
studio sound with a familiar "rehearsal" approach to
the session, thus avoiding a lot of the pressure that may present
itself when the red light is on. With the guitar cabinets in the
iso boths upstars, and the bass lined for later re-amping, this
4 man band where recorded with drums both close miked and with
a Glyn Johns setup, as well as a M/S combo for a maximum of options
when mixing. Some overdubbs such as final lead, backing vocals
and guitar solos were added. Again the SSL console shines in combination
with the rest of the setup.
Also in the pipeline, some songs from the USSR up for mixing.
Both clients from the past and some new voices and names.
April 28th, 2011
At last! After months of installation
and re-design, the new studio setup was finally ready for action
sometime in March. The big news is a Solid State Logic AWS900+SE
console, bought and shipped from England just before Christmas.
This is of course a major upgrade to the studio regarding sheer
audio quality, but also ergonomically and not least, a great inspiration.
A great studio just got even better! As soon as everything was up
and running, I started mixing and recording. First the finishing
touch on a forthcoming Live-DVD release with Europe, then an EP
project with Greasy Saddles, and also the over-dubbing and mixing
of the earlier recorded album with Blackshine. Some other livemixes
have also been done. All I can say is, wow! Every aspect of the
desk is amazing and with the recent version 4 software, I don't
miss anything. To complete the studio upgrade an Eventide Eclipse,
a Sony R7 and D7 and a Mohog MoFET76 was installed. The Motu system
got a second HD192 interface for audio in and out of the AWS900.
I also got a very nice clock generator from Black Lion Audio of
With the release of Pro Tools 9, I had to add that to the arsenal.
Originally a hard core Logic user from way back in the days of Ataris
and Creator/Notator (back in the dark middle ages), I made the switch
to Nuendo some years ago when I lost interest in Apple computers
for various reasons and never really looked to Pro Tools since its
inability to run on non-Digidesign hardware. With that out of the
way with version 9, I must admit Pro Tools integrates in a fantastic
way with the AWS900 with on-screen control even over routing and
plug-ins, in a way Nuendo doesn't come close to. However, from a
pure DAW standpoint I'm perfectly
happy with version 5 of Nuendo and still
consider it "King of the hill". I'll propably end
up using both depending on the situation and the good thing is I'm
now compatible with the majority of DAWs.
I've updated the homepage with some new pictures, but if you're
curious to stop by for a coffe and a peak, just let me know.
Last but not least. As an introduction to BAM Version 2.0 I'm still
using the prices from 2009 on the "BAM
Version 2.0 offer" pricelist. So, if you have a recording
project and want to treat yourself to an absolute top-notch studio
at a bargain price, what are you waiting for?
August 3rd, 2010
After the summer I'm starting
up with a new DAW. Nuendo 5 was released at the beginning of the
summer, and with some additional hardware changes to my system,
as well as switching to Windows 7 (64-bit), I hope to reach a
new level of performance and stability. In working with projects
for DVD-release with 5.1 sound mixed to picture, Nuendo has proved
superiour to any other DAW I've used. Swithing to a 64-bit OS
meant replacing my grapic card and some other components, but
seem well worth the effort with an expanded RAM (8gb). But, as
always with computers, I keep my fingers crossed.

Robert Karl-Oskar Broberg on SVT!
The last days of April I was
called in to record veteran entertainer Robert Broberg who was
doing 2 shows in Stockholm. Turning 70 this year and with some
50 years as a performer, Robban is an icon to the swedish audience.
The show at Cirkus was captured in HD before an euforic crowd,
and SVT (Swedish Television) soon decided to take part in the
celebration by broadcasting the result on july 10th in both HD
and standard resolution. The reviews were very positive and a
DVD with additional material is planned for release.
March 16th, 2010
in the studio!
Thanks to the marvels of internet
and e-bay, I managed to aquire some long sought after hardware
additions my studio arsenal. First, a Motu 308 interface (which
is no longer manufactured) with all digital connections for hooking
up those digital outboards I use as external plug-ins in Nuendo
during mixdown. Then, the Holy Graal, a Yamaha D-5000 digital
delay. By many considered the best DDL ever made. Had to have
November 18th, 2009
New Candlemass DVD/CD finished!
Just the other day I delivered
the final mixes for the new Candlemass live-DVD/CD
recorded on June 4th at Sweden Rock Festival. The concert will
be released both on CD and on a DVD including a bonus concert
recorded in Greece in October. The band has really settled in
with the new singer, Robert Lowe, and they sound re-born with
a lot of energy and some really good new material. Always a pleasure
working with these gentlemen and the mixes came out fatter and
heavier than ever. Both the band and myself are very happy with
the result. Check www.candlemass.se
for release dates.

goes UAD-2 !
Being a user of Universal Audio
hardware for some years with my 2-610 pre-amp, and software since
the very first days of the UAD-1, I recently upgraded my DSP capacity
with the new UAD-2
Quad. This monster DSP card with processing power equivalent
of 10!!! UAD-1 cards, makes it possible for me to emulate a complete
SSL-4000 desk complete with classic SSL stereo buss compression,
or if you prefer a NEVE 88RS. For the past few years I've relied
on the UAD 1176, LA-3 and Neve eq's for all my mixing work. With
the UAD-2 Quad I can now add such goodies as the Fatso and EMT-250,
modeled after golden units resulting in the best emulations available
today. Of course, no matter how good an emulation is it can never
really capture the feel of riding a fullblown SSL desk, but the
way the industry looks today, few would pay that bill. So, focusing
on the sheer audio side of the matter, UAD gets you very, very
close to the real thing for a fraction of the price. Check it
I also recently invested in a Waves Maxx BCL for my livework at
O-Baren. Excellent DA-conversion, and the compressor and limiter
is just the ticket for getting the right punch and still keep
the soundlevel legal.
Lately I've recorded Vindictiv and Jorn at a Metalfest at Tyrol
in Stockholm. I'll probably be mixing some of the material too.
At O-Baren I've recorded Roger Rönning at the release gig
for his new CD. I also recorded Katharina Nuttall, also at her
CD release. In the studio I'm finshing up with Candlemass (for
this time), making the 5.1 for their Sweden Rock DVD.
September 21st, 2009
DVD out now!
The DVD version of the previously
on CD released recording from Nalen, Stockolm, is now out. I'm
proud and happy to say it made 3rd place in the swedish chart,
only beaten by the great MJ! Europe is also recieving a lot of
aclaim for their new studio album, "Last
look at Eden". Congrats guys!
Lately I've been working with bands such as Blackshine and Serafin
in the studio, and also mixing for a couple of russian artists.
I'm currently in the finishing process of a new DVD with Candlemass
captured at their performance at Sweden Rock Festival earlier

mixes Glas Vegas!
At last a long overdue update
of this homepage. The second half of my 2008 was spent rebuilding
and exapning the Bauman family residence, hence the silence on
the news departement. Of course this doesn't mean nothing happend,
on the contrary. During the fall, the CD version of Europe's "Live
at Nalen - Almost unplugged" was released, and the guys even
made a beautiful, orange limited vinyl edition of it. Nice!
I also spent quite a lot of time in the studio with the guys from
Amazing Bryatollah Ferrarys", recording their first album
at BAM. Now we're nearly done, and the result is very interesting.
You can hear some previous recordings on their homepage.
Finally, I've been fortunate to get to work with yet another big
international name. On November 4 th, James and Rab Allan from
the much acclaimed scottish group Glas Vegas did an acoustic apperance
at O-Baren. I recorded and mixed the gig for Daniel Höglund
at swedish Sony BMG, and now (March 9 th) the result is released
as an EP on Spotify. Check it out!
June 26th, 2008
Live @ Nalen DVD finished!
intense work during the spring and early summer, I finally finished
mixing the sound for the forthcoming DVD with Europe, recorded
on January 26th this year. A slightly different presentation of
this classic rock act that I'm sure will please a lot of hardcore
fans as well as those not familiar with the band. The concert
features a string quartet, a lot of acoustic guitars and a very
enthusiastic crowd at the legendary Stockholm venue Nalen. Most
of the hits from the old days are there, together with a fine
selection of covers that has made an impact on the band over the
years, and of course some of the more recent Europe material.
All presented in a little more mellow and laid back manner, but
still with great intensity and soul. A true joy to work with,
both musically and socially (the guys all being really nice).
The mix will be mastered by Henrik Jonsson at Masters of Audio,
Stockholm early July, and the DVD is due for release this fall.
Now I'm off to vacation, see ya!

recording/mix, song of the week on Chris Cornell site!
learned that "Billy Jean" from my recording and mix
of Chris Cornell's live performance at O-Baren, Stockholm, september
2006, was voted song of the week by Chris' fans on his site. You
can check it out here.
To my knowledge, the only other song released from that recording
is "Wide awake" on the "O-Baren 2006" promo-CD.
Hopefully there will be more songs from that magical night made
available to the fans in the future.
March 20th, 2008
in da' house!!
got a DTS Encoder to the studio. From now on I can offer not only
finalized DTS streams for DVD, but also DTS encoded 5.1 surround
CDs. This is an excellent alternative when you want to capture
the magic of a liveperformance in surround, but producing a full
blown DVD-production is not possible for various reasons. The
result is a CD containing a 44,1 khz/16 bit 5.1 mix, playable
in any home movie system. A good example of this if you want to
check it out is Bonnie Raitts "Road tested" available
on DTS Surround CD. Recommended for all surround suckers!

out our new, great rates for unsigned and Indie bands!
always loved working with new, talented, struggling, passionate
bands and artists. After playing in so many bands myself over
the years, I really know what it's like, the fun and the hard
work, and I still enjoy being a part of that although nowadays
on the other side of the glass. I'm also aware of the problem
many bands have financing their recordings, which often leads
to low cost and ultimately low quality solutions. Sadly, nowadays
the people who will listen to you promo material are not so forgiving
it comes to the quality of the recording itself, as they where
when I first started out. Today they're used to listening to full
blown productions from day one, and an inferior sounding presentation
might put you in the bin before you even got the chance. So, in
order to remedy that, Bauman Audio Media can now offer special
rates for unsigned and indie bands and artists. You get the pricelist

whishes for the new year!
really flies! A new year, and the prevoious one is suddenly history.
For my part it ended with a quiet, relaxing christmas and new
year holiday with the family. One of the last things that happend
in 2007 was an odd job. Via my friends at Independent Film Studios
I got the question if I would let filmproducer Fredrik Martin
use the BAM- studio as the setting for a TV-commercial for Unibet.
Not really knowing what I agreed to I said yes. So, on the 16th
the studio was invaded by photographers, actors, clients, electricians,
gaffers and others. Obviously the setting for the "story"
of the commercial was, yes, a recording studio, and since the
actors were supposed to sing and be recorded, I helped out with
that. A hectic day but fun, and both the day and the result turned
out quite well. The spot is presently running in a couple of different
versions on commercial TV in Sweden.
During the fall I spent time in the studio with Ryan Roxie and
his new swedish band, Happy Pill. Ryan has been playing with icons
like Alice Cooper and Slash for many years before moving to Stockholm
with his swedish wife and their kids. We started of with a recording
session, tracking 8 or so songs. We're now concentrating of 3
or 4 of those to be released during 2008. With Happy Pill I also
did a rare live appearance outside the O-Bar, when I did the PA-sound
for the band as they opened a show for The Poodles at Klubben,
Stockholm in december. You can check Happy Pill out at www.myspace.com/happypill07
and Ryan has his own site at www.roxie77.com.
There's also a definite possibility that the band will re-appear
at the O-Bar sometime before the summer. Great guy, great band
and great songs, check it out!
September 11th, 2007
On March 31st, Candlemass
summoned fans, ex-members and guest stars for a 20 year anniversary
at Klubben, Stockholm. The idea was to capture the event for a
unique DVD-release. Unfortunately, the audiorecording was destroyed
supposedly due to a harddrive failiure. As I was not involved
in the recording, I truly don't know what happend, only that the
only available sound recording was a 32 khz/12 bit stereo track
from one of the cameras. So, in august, Leif Edling called me
to see what could be done to salvage the project and secure the
release. Was it possible to extract a decent sound from this off
center, lo-fi track, and in the process create a virtual 5.1 version?
After a quick listening through, I told Leif "Yes, I think
it can be done. Don't expect miracles, but a decent, listenable
presentation". After some extensive processing involving
M/S encoding and processing the result was a definite improvement.
I'm happy to have helped secure the release of this once in a
the new HoS album is mixed, mastered and due for relese October
18th. The album is entitled "Retoxed". If you are in

House of Shakira album in the mix!
Well it's been a while,
sorry for that. The spring of 2007 presented a hectic work schedule,
aswell as a new addition to the Bauman family, putting "updating
the homepage" at the very end of a long "to do"
list. But now at last, while enjoying
some time of in the rainy (so
far) swedish summer, I had no more excuses.
Lately I've been working on the new House of Shakira album,
the groups 5th I believe.
Still there are a couple of songs left to work on, and of course
mastering which will be done by Claes Persson @ CRP sometime in
August. After some initial struggle the album is coming along
nicely, with some new sides of HoS on display. Some songs are
played and mixed more aggressively than ever before, but there
are also a few that will please the more conservative A&R
fan. A balanced mix to sum it up. Release is set for the fall
Through my work at O-Baren, I recently made some new and interesting
hopefully will result in some form of collaboration later this
summer. I'll keep you posted. In the mean time I wish you a nice
and relaxing summer, I'l try to have one at least.

Bauman goes PC again. New studio Super-DAW
After close to 2 years on the
Mac platform due to Apples aquisition of Emagic,
we're back where we started, on the PC. Since the development
of Logic as anticipated/feared took a new direction as a member
of the Apple family, it became
more and more clear that it was time for a change. Though a great
writing music, Logic, in my opinion doesn't quite cut it when
it comes to mixing,
and especially for 5.1 and mixing to picture. Being a Emagic user
for almost 15
years of course made a switch seem very painful and scary.
But, once familiarised with Nuendo 3, I was sold. Of course no
software is perfect,
and Nuendo sure has it's flaws (no sidechaning for instance),
but I think it's as close
as you get today especially in my favourite area, surround sound.
And, and I thought I'd never say this, I even think it sounds
better. More open and analog style somehow.
So, once the decision was taken, parts for a PC Super-DAW was
ordered. The result is a AMD Opteron Dual Dual rackmounted beast
with 4 Gb RAM and a tripple head Matrox Parphelia graphic card.
It's wotrh noting that with Nuendo, Bauman is fully compatible
with all professional DAW software on both the Apple and PC platform
via import of OMF and AAF. Cubase And Nuendo projects can of course
be opened directly in Nuendo, regardsless of original platform.
The G5? It served me well, but I had to let it go. Sold it to

Bauman receives prestigeous russian
After mixing material for a
sideproject by Lonya Goutkin, member of russian rockband Avtograph,
Bauman is now officially appointed "King of Russian Crazy
Rock". This was confirmed today over telephone by Mr Goutkin
directly from Moscow. As this is the russian rock scene equivalent
to the Nobel Prize in litterature, yours truly can't help but
to get all misty eyed. Also, Mr Goutkin euphorically and generously
offered to sponsor a new business card where this hard earned
title of course must be added.

Bauman records Chris Cornell live
Just the other day we had a
true legend visiting O-Baren. Chris Cornell stopped by for an
all acoustic solo performance, while in Europe on a promotion
tour for the new AudioSlave album, 'Revelations'. Apart from handling
the live audio at O-Baren as usual, I was requested by Sony/BMG
to make a recording of the event for radio broadcast on several
stations all over Scandinavia, aswell as for a video documentation
by MTV. Happy to oblige, I also to care of mixing the recording
during the same night so that it would be truly 'radio ready'
the following morning. That of course not being the best of circumstances
for the perfect mix, it still turned out pretty nice. A fine memory
of a really tough undertaking. Lots of fun and a very good performance
by an seemingly inspired Mr Cornell in front of a select audience
of 150 or so excited Stockholmians.

Bauman produces liverecord for O-Baren/Sturehof
I'm very excited about the deal
just closed with my friends at O-Baren/Sturehof. Since
early 2006 I've recorded just about every liveact (that would
let me) at O-Baren down- town Stockholm. I always thought that
it was a shame with all this livemusic, and a lot of it really
good, just passing through without ever being documented. My suggestion
that we should record as much as possible and then compile a selection
of the very best performances of the past year on a CD, was recieved
with great enthusiasm by
the guys at the O-Bar/Sturehof, Juha, Lorentzo and Nicke. After
some dealin' and wheelin' with the people in charge, a deal was
closed just recently. Due for release in
the first quarter of 2007, a compliation CD will be released by
Sturehof. The record is for promotion only, and will be handed
out to regulars, journalists and others. With over
30 recorded concerts to choose from already, I'll continue to
record throughout 2006, and then a final selection will be made.
Bauman Audio Media is recording and mixing
all the concerts, while Sturehof handles the graphics and duplication
of the final master. Already we know this is going to be very
special record, and you'll probably want a copy.

Eagle-Eye Cherry lievalbum due for release
I just recieved word from Eagle-Eye
that the liverecord I mixed for him mix earlier this year is due
for release. The records contains songs from all of his fantastic
career, and was recorded on location on tour in Europe some years
ago, not by me though. The exact releasedate is not yet known to
me, but check out EEC's own website at www.eagleeyecherry.com

Dissection band leader found dead
I just learned that leader of
Black Metal band Dissection, Jon Nötveidt has been
found dead. Apparently he took his own life. Though I didn't
know Jon other than strictly professionally after recording
and mixing the bands reunion DVD, "Rebirth of Dissection",
it's always sad when a young person chooses death before life.

Chris Laney @ Bauman
Once again I've had the pleasure
of working with producer Chris Laney (Crash Diet etc), as he returned
to BAM for the recording of the drum tracks for upcoming Vanity
Blvd. Two days of hard work resulted in 10 songs for the bands
debut album. Chris now returns to his own, smaller studio for
additional recording and mix.

Bauman mixes Angelica
I've just had the pleasure of
Belarus Eurovision Songcontest representative in 2005 and big
star "over there". A song called Ya budu zhit
dlia tebia, or Im gonna live for you found
it's way to the Bauman facility. Co-written by
Leonid Goutkin/Vladimir Matetsky/Angelica Agurbash/Lilia Vinogradova
by Jocke Björklund, the song is aimed for the russian market.
A video has also been produced.

Bauman records Dissection again
Not long after finishing the
production of "The Rebirth of Dissection", it was time
new concert recording with the band. Announced as the bands last
concert in Europe,
"The Midsummer Massacre" at Johanesshovs Ice Stadium
in Stockholm on June 24th,
was captured by The Speed
Sled Team and producer Micke Sandberg. With a slightly
different line-up and some strong new material, the band delivered
a massive show with heavy pyro FX almost 3 years after the recording
of the "Rebirth"-DVD.

A 30-minute TV-version of the

producer Micke Sandberg, the show will be aired on SVT on June

After a week and a half of
hard work finishing the Dissection DVD, I've done some
studio work recording Patrik Svalander and his crew. I also recorded
and mixed three
songs for Leif Edling and a previous line-up of Candlemass. The
songs are part of an upcoming release by Sound

EFTI @ Bauman Audio Media!
Swedish film production company EFTI
uses the Bauman Audio Media studio facility for shooting sketches
with actor Peter Appelgren for the TV4 show "Världens
With props delivered by our neighbour Independent Film Studios,
the BAM facility came through as the perfect studio for smaller
Dissection DVD in the mix!
Finally the Dissection concert recorded in the fall of 2004 at
Arenan, Stockholm, is up for mix. This is an all Speed
Sled Production with Magnus Göthlund as Director. The
DVD is due for release later in 2006 on the Escapi Music label.
This is the first production with Nuendo 3 as the main music editing
and mixing software, and so far it seems to be a big leap forward
both in funcionality and
sound compared to Logic 7.
Dissection also took the opportunity to use the Bauman Audio Media
studio for the recording of the video for the new single Starless
Aeon, again with Magnus as Director, and Jim Heneghan cutting

The new website is up!
After a very busy second half of 2005, I finally got around to
doing something about the website. With expert help from Patrik
Svalander at Fusion
Design, the site is now online. For practical reasons, I decided
to only make an english version. Welcome to check it out, and
feel free to contact me with your opinions, questions, or maybe
for a studio tour.
