Scenario was formed in December
–96 by Peter who had played along with Roger in various
bands with different types of music. They ended up in
a group who would be playing 99% instrumental music.
When that group later split up, Peter and Roger had
no intention to quit playing and they were quite sure
about what type of music they wanted to explore. So
to be able to realize their projects, some recruitments
had to be made. Peter remembered guitarist Ville from
earlier years and thought that his musical interests
would fit the band, so a phone-call was made and luckily
he wasn’t engaged in any orchestras for the moment.
The forthcoming collaboration turned out in some exciting
arrangements, containing drums, bass, guitars and keyboards.
But to get all the pieces together the band realised
that some kind of vocal ingredients would be nice, and
believe it or not a fourth member came out from a clear
blue sky: Johan, who had been searching for musicians
for his own projects as he had just moved to the city.
Shortly after he had met up with the band, they found
themselves mixed up in a huge project that would result
in their first album “Alter ego”. The record was released
in -99 and was a thematic story about an individuals
“ups and downs” witch the title gives a hint about.
The record got a few really nice reviews and even sold
a number of copies. The quartet began quite shortly
after “Alter ego” to build on a bit smaller project:
”Rise and take part”, a CD that would contain four tracks,
and even some background vocals by Peter and Ville.
“Rise and take part” was released in -00. Unfortunately,
after the “Rise”-album, Johan had to leave the band
as he moved to another city. The remaining power-trio
has after that been writing some new material and has
also looked at some older tunes. Nowadays the band uses
sequencer to play keyboard-patterns, allot more then
they did before, and it lifts the sound notably. Scenario
is also talking about testing a new singer.
– drums, acoustic/electronic percussion and background
I started playing drums at the age of 8, and then
studied drums for about fifteen years. When I was fourteen
I joined my first band and we were playing both covers
and our own material. After a few years I became more
interested in symphonic rock and formed a band in –89,
the rest is under the history
section. When I had started drumschool I also took
part in some brass orchestra sessions and some percussion
ensembles, and I picked up some techniques that are
very useful in today’s projects.
The drumkit I use is Tama except for
the snaredrums. The main snare is a thin handmade one,
and the other deeper snare is Pearl. I
also use a Roland octapad and a soundunit
along with it, witch often comes in handy in this type
of music. My cymbals are Paiste and the
sticks I use are Regal.
My influences are Neil Peart and Rush’s music. I
also listen to Mick Tucker (Sweet) and Bill Bruford.
