“My experience has given me the opportunity to tell stories with different forms of expression. I have written songs and made music videos, written scripts, directed and produced commercials, short stories and pilots. Being able to hold the creative responsibility for these art forms is a pleasure and a constant challenge. The trick is to make room for all artists in every element of the work while keeping the job together until the job is done. "
Already at the age of 14, Ove set foot in a music studio. That foot may still be there. With more than 20 years as a music producer, it is obvious that he uses his experiences and is responsible for the music in his own productions.
