sirenia-videoinnspilling Serbia 082

When I started this blog, I was looking for my harddisc where ALL my old pictures were saved. I wanted to find them and share some of them with you all. On that harddisc I had pictures from all my travels  and everything from my life before 2011. But it is gone. Totally gone. I really don’t understand where it is. The only thing I can think of is that my two year old son has thrown it out with the garbage! I have been almost crazy trying to find it:( But I gave up. But then a miracle happened. I found some old CD Roms, and fortunately I had saved some of my pictures of them;) I found all the pictures from my Sirenia period:) But I lost all the pictures from when I lived in Norway and pictures from my trip to Thailand etc:(

I want to share some unseen behind the scene photos with you and tell you the story behind. I had a feeling of joy and happines, when I looked at the old pictures. The picture above is from Serbia in 2006 where Sirenia were recording music videos to the tracks: My Minds Eye and The Other Side. It is behind the scenes, where you can see me (Monika Pedersen) concentrating a lot on the video shoot with the song: My Minds Eye. (Watch the video here: My Minds Eye). Everything was recorded in blue screen, so we didn’t have anything else in the room. It was really funny to make the videos, and I remember that I felt like it was the easiest thing in the world. The picture below is also from Serbia recording the video to My Minds Eye.

Before GraspopThe picture above is from Graspop 2007 just 15 minutes before we went to the stage with Sirenia. I was getting my voice warmed up. I was very nervous but also very very happy and excited. Just two years before I was visiting Graspop as an audience. Living in tents with my friends. I remember standing there in front of the stage listening to music and thinking : I want that. I want to be on that stage. Whatever it takes. And my biggest dream came through. 2 years after I was here on the stage in front of 10.000 people. Wow. With Lynn

This picture also have a funny story. It was from Metal Female Voices fest in Belgium in 2007 with a girl called Linn. I didn’t know her, but she bought a painting from me. I was travelling with a big painting in the plain etc the whole way to Belgium so she could have it after the concert. So we met and had a chat and a photo and she got her painting:)

  1. It is an amazing feeling finding those lost moments of the past and reminiscing on the good and happy times.

  2. I adore when you speak in time spent in Sirenia. And at the same time it is sad. Music – life. I hope you never will leave from a scene, and you will create the project soon, and this project will be the cool project 😀 It will eclipse everything, will be magnificent, it will be best of all that you did ever 😀 And we won’t worry because of last good times. Because you can make something cool in the present 😀 I believe in you, Monica 😀

  3. Yes it is. And sometimes we forget to think about them. Pictures help a lot to remember:)
