Peter with tape recorderIt seems my best play mate has always been the tape recorder, like in the early seventies when I spent most of my time together with this machine called Revox A77. As a twosome we turned out what for most of the time  sounded like  a rampage in outer space or at our best occasions more like a symbiosis of Tyrannosaurus  Rex, Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel.

In 1980 I was invited by Chilean singer/ songwriter/ radio reporter Juan Diego Spoerer to help him out with an album he was working on called Estaciones. It was my first meeting with a real studio and being a hundred percent taken in by this experience, I eventually decided to procure
some equipment and start a business of my own. In a few years the enterprise had flaunted where upon I concluded that it would perhaps be best to move it all to our home instead, which I eventually did. Then as the years passed I got involved in more and more projects, among which one was the recording of Fereidouhn Nadimi´s album In memory of Hafez. "Feri" who also became a sporadic member of In the labyrinth eventually moved back to his native country Iran where he now lives. Along with my old friends Stefan

Ottman (who is also part of the ITL gang) and Börje Nyberg, I started a trio at the end of the nineties called Herr Ur, meaning quite roughly Mr Rolex. We played almost exclusively our own material, generally on acoustic instruments. Then in 1998 yet another trio arose, this one called Kukkla. We aimed at combining ancient ethnic music with contemporary  instruments and  performed now and then at festivals of various kinds.
