Köttets lust – Teater C

Just nu spelar vi föreställningen ”Köttets Lust” av Teater C på Köttinspektionen i Uppsala. Det är jag på sax och flöjt, Emil Ingmar på piano och dragspel samt Michael Näslund på gitarr, bas och sång!

”Premiärkvällen innehåller så vitt skilda uttryck som elegant stepp, poetiska prosamonologer, sjuttiotalsschlagers med ironi, högklassig mim, vemodiga visor, vild jitterbugg och blues.”
”Ingen vet hur kvällen kommer att gestalta sig, inte ens de medverkande.”
”I förställningskonceptet ingår också att ingen av de tio planerade föreställningarna kommer att vara den andra lik, att gästartisterna kommer att växla .”

Efter att ha hållit på med ljudteknik sedan jag var i förskolan så funderade jag ett tag på att pensionera mig, men har nu bestämt mig för att satsa på det, jag har ju ändå grejerna.I alla fall på uthyrning!

Så jag håller nu på att gå igenom alla sladdar, mixerbord, högtalare, monitorer, slutsteg mm för att se till att allting är i bra skick och i bra ordning samt se över var jag behöver investera i.

Så behöver ni hyra ljudutrustning med eller utan ljudtekniker, hör av er!


Uppsala Musikklasser

I am happy to announce that this fiscal year I am starting to teach at Uppsala Musikklasser, leading one of their orchestras.

Uppsala Musikklasser is a high school with music ”profile” and very good reputation. I am very excited about this opportunity and more so since me myself spent my high school years in this school.

Oskar Forsberg

Uppsala Summerchestra 2016

So finally I have contemplated enough to be able to share this summers events.

With 25 young musicians divided into 2 orchestras with 3 weeks each, we did 40 gigs in total. With some interest in media as well as a huge number of applicants I think it is not too brave to say that it has been a success!

And the music! Each and every member of the two bands have performed flawlessly and way beyond my expectations and their previous level. I am so happy to have been leading these young musicians.

Flute Night

So tonight, as a part of the Swedish Flutefestival I performed a set of jazz flute together with Emil Ingmar, Daniel Forsberg & Daniel Olsson in the ”Uppsala Jazz Group”. Might not sound that strange, but I think it is the first time I’ve performed as a solo artist without my saxophone. I actually brought the saxophone with me on stage in case I would feel too lost, but the band performed beautifully and it was fun to play! I got a lot of positive comments afterwards, but I’ve got no idea weather they where right or not.

After me there was the Finnish flute goddess Annika Gummerus-Putkinen performing with the same rhythm section, which was very nice! After that there was Janne Bengtson and Anders Åstrand playing some songs too! So it was a full night 🙂

The three guys in Caius Cat back together

We where finally re-united the whole group of three guys of Caius Cat in Alicante and Elche in south of Spain last week!

The same day we arrived we did some rehearsing and a gig at the Jazz Bar in Alicante Villavieja 6. That was huge fun and felt great to be back together! Next day we spent the whole day in the studio, what a great place to be and really pleasant engineers working with us. Pedro was interviewed for a Spanish Jazz Radio station, keeping updated how and where you could hear it.

On Saturday we played at a big concert hall in Elche with great sound engineer and light engineer and aweseome staff! Super acoustics, it is really fun to play in concert halls from time to time although I prefer the intimacy of clubs. After that had a great night out with some really cool guys and girls!

Sunday morning then was the last gig at a music school where they have concerts from time to time. I was really honored when a couple came to that show, they told me afterwards that they had been to the concert the night before but wanted to come and see us again while they had the chance.


Sax Encounters

The ”newly” started project Sax Encounters is bringing me a lot of joy and happiness lately!

We have started to find a shape and form of the music and getting the sound together. At first when starting with the sax quartet I thought the gig opportunities would be few and that the audience would be pretty scarce. But when you start getting into improvisation, listening to Brass bands, Balkan bands, other great sax quartets such as SaxShop we’ve been getting new ideas. And after making a few concerts where the crowds have been plentiful and super excited I am not having any doubts about this anymore!

We now have a pretty big repertoire of classical music, jazz, traditional jazz (ragtime and new orleans) and party songs. This band is awesome for parties, background music, concerts and big venues all the same thanks to a very varied program and highly skilled musicians!

In the band we’ve got:

Bo Frick – Soprano Sax

Nicklas Dahlin – Alto Sax

Roger Nordling – Tenor Sax

Oskar Forsberg – Baryton Sax


And further down the line we will see some doubles and maybe even some guests!

Feel free to like our facebook page and share and you know the drill!


Best regards



Music Power Maffia

One of my young students have a project called Music Power Maffia, which is young musicians playing and working for charity causes. I am very impressed with the way Wilhelm is running this and it is going to be exciting seeing the future of this project which I am somehow a part of.

Check it out here:


The music syndicate MPM was founded in 2014 by the Swedish saxophonist Wilhelm Fredlund, on his 13th birthday. All young artists in the project work individually or in groups to bring joy and support with the power of music to young and old who live an exposed life in the borderland.
MPM provides help organizations with contributions collected through the artists gigs, concerts and similar events. We cooperate among others with Barncancerfonden who fight childhood cancer and ensures that affected children, youths and their families get the care and support they need. The vision is to exterminate childhood cancer. Learn more about the Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation through the link below.

MPM works from basic values to provide entertainment, beneficence, equality and gender equality. For us it means that we oppose any form of racism, sexism, homophobia and bullying. Our mission is to achieve a powerful musical imprint in the name of solidarity.All participating artists are contributing with valuable efforts to comply with the MPM’s mission and vision.

All saints day concert (allahelgonaafton)

Me and my dad have been booked a long time for the concert we did tonight in Danmarks kyrka outside of Uppsala.

We’ve been working a lot past week with the material. We picked and choosed some of our favorite songs, both of our own and from idols such as Zawinul, Pastorious, Shorter and Lars Gullin. We’ve been going through every song meticulously thinking and testing out all the little details as well as the big sound. It’s been a very fun and rewarding process, and one that unfortunately is not possible to do in most projects because of lack of time and budget, we did how ever put the time into it this time.

Today I started getting nervous though, by the idea of playing overly complex fusion songs, mixed up with some blues and gospel songs in a Church on a big church day with synthesizers and an audience compound of the regular church visitors, and maybe one or two of our friends.

I really loved playing this concert, the full sound and acoustics of a medieval church (it is 700years old!) was amazing to feel and I think we both did a good job and went in there well prepared. I had no idea what the audience was feeling about it though, even afterwards I was skeptical. However, I have never in my life received so many messages and emails from peoples thanking me for a show as tonight. I feel really happy that we managed to get our music and emotions across and that it touched so many peoples, this have been amazing!

Thank you!

Caius Cat Trio

Young Swedish-Spanish-Swiss jazz trio Caius Cat Trio launch their self-titled debut album, packed with their unique, imaginative music, which tends to let traditions of jazz break new ground. Oskar Forsberg is the inspired tenor saxophonist from Sweden, schooled in the playing of Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane, who challenges his roots in experiments with novel harmonic and improvisational soundscapes. Spanish bass player Pedro Martinez Maestre, located in Switzerland, secures the groove and provides this airy trio with the requisite harmonic energy usually called for by the piano or guitar. Finally, Swiss drummer Raphael Nick showcases his versatility as an expressive and intuitive musician, setting the framework for the exciting sound of the trio. As a special treat, Caius Cat Trio introduces the skillful Swedish jazz pianist Gunnar Åkerhielm on a couple of tracks. This group presents some exhilirating music, constantly with one foot in the past, and the other in the future.
