People´s Temple - New Single, Dec. 2011



Somewhere in 2009 I got high on the percussion music of American streetmusician Moondog. I quit my band and decided to start making pop-songs, using only my voice, birds and random drums.
(geiger interview:

The work resulted in a frontpage for Danish newspaper, Politiken and a show at one month prior to the album release.

The project grew in new directions and I suddenly felt that I was capturing some hidden mating-language from deep inside a jungle. (politiken interview:

”I decided to bomb the band routine, go solo and pretend that I was some kind of bird. Much like the Vogelkop Bowerbird as seen in BBC´s Earth Series. A little fella building a mating-hall out of sticks, branches, flowers and half-dead ladybirds” - was how I put it out in an interview with L.A. based magazine BWatt in July 2011.

October 2011 I released a new single: "Shining Gold Shining Bright" A song closer to the sound experienced at my recent live shows.

December 2011 I release another single named "People´s Temple". Once again a new approach to my songwriting.
