Thomas Sjöland's Music

latest update 2007-11-03

Incomplete "Opus list" including public performances (some pieces on-line)

A number of electronic tape pieces were produced at home during 1971-1974

I played electric bass in various experimental electric jazz groups during 1970-1975. Kursverksamheten vid Lunds Universitet had an annex in my home town Kristianstad and the people there as well as the teachers and headmaster at my various schools were most helpful.

Recorded performances with Pernilla Wallin (epi), Hans-Åke Ohlsson (gi), Jörgen Nilhamn (gi), Mats Rabe (dr), Thomas Sjöland (b) and Stefan Wistrand (sax) at

I moved to Stockholm in 1975.

A number of electronic tape pieces (analog and with computer control) 1975-1980 at EMS, for instance:

I then turned to setting up my own home studio with computers controlling simple MIDI synthesizers and drum machines (ABC80 and later Mac+, currently a 450 Mhz PC with a multichannel soundcard and some MIDI modules). 1980-now at my home (Out of Time Studios), resulting in for instance the following works:
