Mårten Lärka Band has an open rehearsal Friday 12th of May 18.00 PM. For customizing the tracks in public before setting for the recording studio. 12 texts of the Swedish writer Stig Dagerman, who turns 100 years in 2023, are in the pipe.
The Swedish writer Stig Dagerman turns 100 years in 2023. Mårten Lärka is currently working on some adaptions, putting music to his timeless words. Stig Dagerman died in 1954 but his legacy lives on and his texts are more relevant than ever. More info will come very soon.
The french pop fanzine, VF Pop, recently published an issue of their magazine with focus on french pop music. In one of the articles, by the french artist Pierre Chandeze, Mårten Lärka suddenly shows up.
Pierre Chandeze explains: ”I wanted to draw Mårten Lärka because he’s not french but sing in french, then I thought of the song ”Robot” then thought of the Flaming Lips song about pink robots, then about Daft Punk 😂”
2022 was a horrible year to the world, even worse then the previous two. But on a personal level; in the name of making art, music, joy, love and freedom, it was terrific in many ways. The 20th anniversary, for celebrating my two decades as a solo act, at Hembygdsgården in Jättendal, was un unforgettable evening to be Mårten Lärka. With a great little help from my friends we suddenly hit the road again.
Several recordings finally saw their releases during the year. Not to forget mentioning the music video “Robot 22”, after five years in the vault.
I started mixing in a completely new music studio as well. I also commenced a collaboration with another music label, for the first time.
I aim to make 2023 the best I can for being something similar. It is no secret that the tape recorder is repaired and we are currently working again, with the recordings that stopped in April 2021.
All the best to all of you and a very Happy New Year!
