Andreas Tilliander, Sweden's click-electronica star! Nominated for a Swedish Grammy Award for the second year in a row.

»they say that to be a good poet, the first thing you should do is to stop sleeping at night. and the same should apply for music, when the music is of the kind andreas tilliander makes: poetic in the sense that every sound, every part, is there for a reason. andreas tilliander’s name has, in the last two years, gone from complete oblivion to become almost synonymous with the so called ‘clicks & cuts’ movement that has blossomed in the last few years. t he attention came with the album ‘ljud’, which gained reputation far beyond the narrowest electronic music circles. the interest for his music has never been greater.« (source:

aka. Stefan Thor. A new and upcoming star on the electronica scene.
So far has he released one album, the highly acclaimed "misspass" CD on mitek, wich recently was ranked number 2 in the german magazine de:bugs "best of 2002" chart.
Earlier in 2002 he also became artist of the month in the same magazine.

Folie's music is harmonic but not sweet, with clever beats and funky baselines he is creating unique pieces, always delicate and shifting. (source:

BeatLight is a visual instrument. It is designed for making real-time video in perfect synchronization with live electronic music.
It is not, as many video effects systems, a composite engine for prerecorded or live video streams. Instead all visuals are rendered in real-time from programmatically generated or designed 3-d models and images.

The Smart Seminar Day is the first public appearance of the BeatLight visual instrument, currently in its second iteration prototype.

The participants in the BeatLight project are:
Jesper Kouthoofd, experimental film director Jens Rudberg, game developer
Bengt Sjölén, indepenent game technology researcher
