Jonas D Aneheim (B: 1971)
Born and raised in Karlskoga, Jonas D Aneheim started early on to explore the nature of the musical universe. After various musical projects he left Sweden for advanced musical studies at Musicians Institute in Los Angeles CA. Once back in Sweden he teamed team up with Henrik N Björkk and Jouni Ulvtharm and formed the new MZ. 412. During that period he also started exploring the world of electronic ambient music as Sublime Musing (SM). The first and, so far, only SM album, “Symmetrical Sodomy” (1997), is an excellent showcase of his inherent creativity.
In 2002 he teamed up with Uppsala based scientist/artist K. Meizter and formed the duo Beyond Sensory Experience, BSE. With BSE they set out to find all-embracing correlations between numbers, life and music. The first stage of this search was concluded during 2003 with a trilogy series (Tortuna-Urmula-Ratan) released on Old Europa Café. He is also a member of the improv collective ODA where he delivers guitar art and feedback. All in all Jonas have more than 15 albums under his belt
