My music on The History Channel

The History Channel UK has used my music quite a lot lately. You can now hear my music in the following programmes on The History Channel:

THE MASTER: Samurai Sword Master
The samurai were the members of the military class, the Japanese warriors. Their importance and influence grew during the Heian Period (794-1185) when the powerful landowners hired them for the protection of their properties.

THE MASTER: Master Of Castles
Famed architect James of St George perfected the art of castle building. Military experts and architectural historians analyse what made these castles so formidable.

And also; MASTER Gun Maker - for which I can't find any further details.


Napster made me rich!

I found this a bit funny, so I thought I'd post it. :-) I regularly get royalty statements from PRS (Performance Rights Society) for some small sums of performance/broadcast royalties when my music has been used in TV programmes or played in public places, etc.

I got this statement today, which inlcluded a payment of £0.01 from Napster. I'm rich!! :-) This is the proof that Napster really is great for musicians.

The only downside is... with me living in Norway and being in a high tax-class, half of the money goes to paying tax. :-) -- which leaves me with the stunning amount of £0.005 to spend.
