Just finished these posters for a certain someone sharing my last name. It’s gonna be a blast! And it was a lot of fun to take some old illustration techniques into a new direction for this, making some meshes that looks like knees. And it’s always interesting to take the static design into animation (for social media), even if it’s very basic stuff. It tends to squeeze an extra portion of something out of you every time. Sorry, that might sound a little gross. It’s fun, is what I’m saying.
I just did a really fun interview with the swedish mag The Absorbe, complete with a big mixtape! The mix was recorded (in one take) in my apartment in Bergen, featuring Catty the cat amongst other stars. I put in lots of fun tracks from the local Bergen scene as well as some weird stuff, like the “water theme” from Super Mario on Nintendo 64. If you want more, there’s a bunch more music at the music section.

My largest resolution going forward is helping to make clubbing more into the safer space it’s supposed to be.
In my life, dance music clubs have been my no.1 “Safe Space”, where I go to be with other people in joy and artistic inspiration, where everyone’s friends, if only for the evening. Where any dance move is cool, where your only authority is the thunderous bass, and you check any grievance at the door.
I’ve whipped up a playlist for all of you people that will flip out the next time someone plays “Jingle Bells” in your general vicinity, but still has hope for a peaceful, joyous holiday season. Ho ho ho. Don’t murder anyone. Tell them to put this playlist on instead. IT HAS NO CHRISTMAS MUSIC. But it’s still jolly as balls.
I’ll be adding to it as the yuletide grown near, so subscribe now and worry not.
It was a cold Sunday in November when Lysgaard Leverer Episode 07 came out, you can tell your grandkids. The cover art is getting some “bleed-ins” from my other projects going on right now, you might notice an Inkal, which is from the Legend project.
In this episode we are checking out some new tracks from the following golden children:
Second Storey and Appleblim – Gimme 6
What’s Going On (Andy Caldwell’s Love Trumps Hate Remix)
S4U – One Key
Myra – hold-an
Mignon – 808 Dunk
Viers – Ichi ft. Yaeji (Vocal Edit) – Gitt ut på Godmode.
I just released two new songs, “Number Eight Forgets His Medication” and the B-side, “A Small Opening Behind Cell Block D”. Check them out! Links to everything below the video. Here’s something from the press release:
Lysgaard’s doesn’t explain what the titles “Number Eight Forgets His Medication” and “A Small Opening Behind Cell Block D” really means, but if his previous work is anything to go by, we are moving through an absurdist version of Detroit Techno territory. The release follows up this summer’s vinyl release of “Assemble EP”, which sold out on Juno records in two days. Thankfully, digital doesn’t sell out that easily.
The cover art is supplied by the eclectic Belgian/Spanish illustrator Gabri Molist, featuring a short comic based on the two songs.
