Rome Web Awards

February 23, 2015

Hey, hot on the trail of the Academy Awards I received a bit of pleasantly surprising news this morning. Turns out me and Jerry Kokich‘s track They Call Me Super7even off the ‘They Call Me Superseven’ OST soundtrack has been nominated in the Best Song category of the 2015 Rome Web Awards! Pretty neat.

Now, the announcements were made between February 20th – 22nd, and if my understanding from what I read on the official website is correct, the winners will be announced in September this year. Please keep your fingers crossed and give the track a spin on Bandcamp below.

EDIT: Received an update. The award ceremony will be broadcast on April 17th – 19th.

Well, first off, Happy New Year! And did I have a great start or what? I am thrilled to announce that my horror OST-influenced project Videogram is joining Euro label Cineploit‘s roster.

Home of such great artists such as Orgasmo Sonore and Oscillotron, to name just a few, I couldn’t be more excited about joining this label and I am looking forward to getting to work on the second album!

Ginger

December 19, 2014

So, I was recently – or make that yesterday – contacted by UK-based director Geoffrey Taylor who expressed interest in using my old track Ginger for his upcoming documentary about red-haired people and the Redhead Days festival in Breda, Holland.

Geoff’s previous effort Close looks damn great, and having been the official selection of the Encounters Film Festival and the London Film Festival to name just a few, I am more than happy to see this old song being used in his work. I am very excited by this turn of events and can’t wait to see the finished results!

Originally recorded in a quickie demo session back in 2011 – I did drums, bass, guitars, the whole lot! – the track had a quickie 24-bit yesterday evening and will be available via Spotify, iTunes etc. very soon. In the meantime check it out on SoundCloud.

EDIT: If you’ve got Spotify you can give the track a spin here.

Pure Melvin

November 12, 2014

What’s up with the bad vibes, man? Well, after having experienced more than my fair share of shit going through a rough patch – don’t ask – I decided to vent with the all-new synth punk/garage wave project Pure Melvin. For those expecting something similar to Videogram or Call Me Greenhorn this couldn’t be further from it as it is aggressive, dark and kinda punk rock in its delivery.

Teaming up with Aussie musician Jamie Coghill, who’s handling the rhythm department, we’re currently in the midst of working out tracks for what’ll either end up as an album or an EP. This is more spontaneous than my previous projects and we’re making an effort not to overproduce or overthink anything. Just blast it out, keep the energy intact and maintain the freshness of each idea.

It’s too early to tell if this is a one-off kinda thing or something I’ll return to, but make sure to check out Officer Friendly rough mix on SoundCloud and give us a “like” on Facebook here. More tunage coming soon!

EDIT: Just finished up another track tonight and decided to post it on SoundCloud, so make sure to give Clone Factory a spin as well!

2077: Raiders of the Apocalypse

November 4, 2014

So, yesterday saw the premiere of Videogram‘s video for 2077: Raiders of the Apocalypse on YouTube, released to coincide with the limited edition 7″ lathe cut version available via Facebook only.

The video – that’ll also see a physical release later on this year – was created using footage from the 1975 post-apocalyptic oddity A Boy and His Dog starring Don Johnson and one of my first efforts working with Adobe Premiere.

The 7″ is pretty much a vinyl collector’s wet dream and I really went out of my way to make it, well, kinda insane, ha ha ha. These babies are custom made by hand on square see-through plastic and comes with a 7″x7″ sticker instead of a sleeve. These are extremely limited and you can get yours here. Give it a spin on SoundCloud.

Pumpkin Guts 2

October 28, 2014

Check it out: Just in time for Halloween UK label Graveyard Calling releases their second installment in the freebie compilation series Pumpkin Guts. Featuring all sorts of horror-inspired sounds, this 26-track album offers everything from “hellish horrorpunk, sinister synthwave, demonic dubstep and devilish disco” – including Walpurgisnacht off my first Videogram album. Get it here.

Ungawa!

October 22, 2014

Well, since Hammond has given me his permission to share it, I figure I’d post it here as well. Teaming up with Aussie musician The Jimmy C here’s the new theme for his Beyond The Playlist interview show: Ungawa!

Don’t ask me where the heck I got that title from, but I figure it kinda fit. The track turned out great, Hammond’s satisfied and the track will premiere in December, so make sure to stream it online here. While on the subject, my interview:

Camp Blood

October 1, 2014

October’s here and I’m pretty stoked to announce the release of Videogram‘s Halloween track Camp Blood. Created as a “nudge nudge, wink wink” to the fellow horror fans, it’s a tribute to the iconic Friday the 13th series and sort of a mix of the disco theme of Part 3 and Michael Jackson‘s Thriller (or at least that’s what I’ve been told).

Available via my Bandcamp along with iTunes and Amazon, there’s more streaming services coming later this month. Make sure to check it out and the video (using footage from Indonesian knockoff Srigala) below.

Shadows of Prey

September 26, 2014

Check out the debut episode of Austrian director John Brito‘s web series Shadows of Prey that premiered online today! I had a sneak peek roughly a week ago and think this turned out pretty cool – especially considering this is a 100% no budget affair!

I love the title animation that really sets a nice tone, and with the music I produced being used for the end titles I sure have no reason to complain. So give it a peek and help spread the word!

EDIT: Read more about the series on John’s blog here.

Lunchmeat!

August 5, 2014

lunchmeat

…as weird as it is for an old punker to admit, VIDEOGRAM is sort of a concept album… Head on over to Lunchmeat VHS Fanzine to read the all-new interview I did, covering the origins of the album, what’s coming in the near future and a pretty damn fine review of the album as a whole.

Sellergren has masterfully captured the most iconic aural tropes of Italian horror scoring, pushed them through his own personal filter, and melded them with an unmistakable and eerie 80s synth-driven scope of sounds to concoct what may just be the most powerful piece of electronic scoring to hit the horror community this year.

Read it here and check out the official page on Facebook here.
