Tap - March 2014

I don’t think I’ve ever made something like this as a reaction to such a huge life changing event before. I didn’t want to do drafts, it’s not a perfect piece of art it’s far from it, but it played out exactly as I wanted first time.

It’s not a true tribute to my father-in-law, because that would be full of Rolling Stones and life affirming tracks that make you want to dance (I'll make this one soon). This is a tribute to loss, hence the name Tap (Norwegian for Loss). I’ll never accurately portray my feeling of loss this week through a mix, but it’s as close as I can get and it’s honest. More honest than I can speak.

I took the cover photo a couple of days after the news, on a walk around the lake near my wife’s family home in Jessheim, Norway. I uploaded it to Instagram with the caption ‘No Diving’. That’s not quite right though.

Tor-Jahn would have dove.
