Melodies In My Head

Music Project

Melodies in My Head is the new group of Thomas Burkhalter (anthropologist, AV artist, and founder of Norient) and music producer Daniel Jakob (Dubokaj, Dejot). Their debut album, «Joy Anger Doubt» (vinyl was released early 2024, digital release follows autumn 2024), takes us on a ride through joyful pop, hard-hitting club tracks, and experimental sonic landscapes.

The lyrics are drawn largely from ethnographic interviews conducted with artists and thinkers in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe over the past fifteen years. They bear witness to the diverse emotions people go through in turbulent times: hope, joy, ecstasy, depression, doubt, fear, trauma, and anger.
