Desembertoner and web site updates

Here is a video from 'Desembertoner', it's Martin and Tini and Magne performing 'Falling Slowly' by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova at Oslo Domkirke last Friday night:



How stunning is that? I'd never heard the song before, so I looked it up on Wikipedia. It has been covered quite a bit before, and I can see why, it's really beautiful:

I don't know you
but I want you
all the more for that
Words fall through me
always fool me
and I can't react

Games that never amount
to more than they're meant
will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat
and point it home
we've still got time
raise your hopeful voice
you have a choice
you've made it now

Falling slowly
eyes that know me
and I can't go back
Moods that take me
and erase me
and I'm painted black

You have suffered enough
and warred with yourself
it's time that you won

Take this sinking boat
and point it home
we've still got time
raise your hopeful voice
you have a choice
you've made it now

Falling slowly
sing your melody
I'll sing along

Falling slowly
sing your melody
I'll sing along

(from Metrolyrics, which can sometimes be off here and there)

According to a recent article, Magne and Martin Terefe are producing debut albums for Martin and Tini, both expected to be released in the coming months. I can't wait to hear what they've been working on, they both have such amazing talent.

Small update on the web site front: I've been working away behind the scenes, and even enlisted the help of some dedicated MF fans to help me fill in some gaps of information. The more I do, the more I add to the list of things that still need to be done. But it has been a fun process and I am really liking how it is coming along. It's an interesting project, the only problem is that I feel like it will never be ready to 'launch' because there is so much I haven't documented yet. It's always hard to show people a work in progress, but this archive is by definition a work in progress - must let go a little bit at some point, I suppose ;-)
