About Alfred

    Why transforms

  • Acoustic and electric bassplayer, composer and arranger living in Gothenburg.
    Born October 20, 1986
    I started quite early to realize how important music was for me. It was an escape from reality and something to dream away into. I discovered the amazing feeling of being able to write my own music and how easy it actually was to create something out of a small idea. I remember how me and my friends as 7, 8-year-olds got together and with whatever was at hand, such as books and pencils, played and sang.
    When I was around 13-14 years old we took this interest to the next level and formed a rock band where I played the electric bass and sang. I wrote a lot of music for that band, but a lot of the music was also created from us jamming together in the rehearsal studio.
    Working with that band really got me to realize I wanted to be a musician – so that I could continue to explore this wonderful art form.

  • I play in several constellations, most of them are listed under the tab Groups.

    I also do freelance jobs in different contexts. I write and arrange music. For the most part, this is done for the bands I work in, but I also do custom orders for other contexts.
