PROJECTS


Music, architecture/design, and writing are all connected, it's all about telling stories. If we share stories, we create strong relationships.


PODCASTS is a natural way of telling stories for me, very close to composing music. Listen to some of them below. I always try to write a song in every episode, cause in this way the interviewed person becomes a co-creator of the podcast. My idea is to open peoples ears for different peoples passions. I try to make peoples share their passion, and through the story break down social barriers, and create a common ground for dialogues and understanding.


TINY HOUSES I've designed two innovative eco tiny houses the last few years. See the pictures below.


RESTORATION I've drawn a nice studio in an old farm building. See the pictures below


INNOVATION I've been a part of starting the Campus Bornholm Innovation Centre. Here we created a maker space and taught students and innovators methods and craftsmanship to reach their goals. At the annual "folkemøde" 2017, on Bornholm, I arranged the concept and was the moderator for the dialogues. Listen to one of the dialogues below, about innovation in the future. (In Danish)


CAMPUSARKEN is an innovative project I was building my teaching upon in a technical high school, in the subjects: design and technology. Here the project used innovative green technology to build a self-sustaining boat that could cross the oceans. Check out the poster below. (In Danish)


PILEGAARD is a project where we tried to rethink the frame for an old farm in Østermarie. And did a lot of concerts with my former band Eastmary (The video below, "What Is Broken" is shot in the workshop space and is about building up stuff again )


MUSIC FOR TELEVISION I've composed themes for the local TV-station, TV2 Bornholm(Ekko). I've also composed themes for the national Danish television DR (Forførende rum).


EASTMARY was my former band, and we wrote a lot of songs about change.


MIKKEL THOMAS is my artist name as a solo artist (Listen to my Danish song, "Fuld", below).


JAZZ IMPROVISATION is a way to tell stories on the spot, about any subject, listen below.

"En ode til kusk og hest". This is my first podcast, I made on Artlab, when I learned to produce podcasts (in Danish). But I've stuck to the concept of creating songs for the poscast, and there by making the interviewed person a co-creater og the podcast.

For me innovation is to set a goal, follow your guts, and dare to fail in between the goals you reach. Like a normal working day, for any artist.
