About Me

MEET Johan

Johan Tronestam is a composer who lives on the Åland Islands in the Baltic Sea.

He has a passion in creating instrumental synth music of different shapes. The work takes place in his own studio. Before his great interest in instrumental electronic music he played keyboard in various rock and pop groups, which has been very beneficial for the range in his musical creations.

 

Johan also has experience of studio work and many years as a sound engineer on concerts, from club gigs to concerts with thousands of spectators. He had some important sound technician assignments, where for example a royalty has inaugurated an exhibition and on one occasion where a concert was performed for a president.

As of today he has completed nine albums. 6 CD albums and 4 digital. He has received two scholarships from the Government of Åland for releasing music on CD.

 

The old school of electronic music, progressive rock and experimental music have been a great influence in making his music.

 

Johan has managed to create a musical style as recognizable as his own.

The long journey - Completed and released on CD

This project reflects a future where man has develop the possibility to travel to other stars. But not without misstakes...

"The long journey" is influenced by the astronomer/philosopher/author Peter Nilsons (1937-1998). And also by Harry Martinsons space poem "Anaria".

Luther

"Luther" is a new project where he try to musically interpret the historical person.

Luther ended up in a tough confrontation with his church. He reacted strongly to the greed and corruption that ruled the people in fear of hellfire and also the institution variety of penal methods. He longed for a direct contact with God and that people could have that relationship without the wall who took charge for the contact with God.

I hope no one takes offense, it's not my idea of hurting someone's faith. The project is an interpretation of what is historically documented. I have visited the Vatican City and recently Wartburg, where Luther translated the New Testament,. And it has been the inspiration for this.
