Hej!

My name is Set Hallström, I am a 1980 born half-Swiss, half-Swedish humanoid. I spent my formative years in Sweden but moved to Switzerland when I was 7 years old and later to Spain at 25 to work as a free-lance graphic designer, music producer and recording engineer in the thriving scene of Electronic music of Barcelona. These moves helped me to develop my interest for different languages, and today I speak five fluently. I have a broad and genuine interest for people and this, combined with my well-developed communication skills, gives me the perfect tools to work with in social environments. My schooling at École Cantonale d’Art du Vallais (Swiss Art-school, today known as EDHEA) and my experiences as free-lance graphic designer have given me deep knowledge of several tools for printed- / digital-publications, such as the complete Adobe products suit, several CMS systems including the codes and the mechanisms behind these digital-platforms.

When I am not working, I spend most of my time editing video, wiring my synthesizers, streaming audio from my IceCast2 instance, writing music, poetry, animating or experimenting with my own Ubuntu servers. Free Open Source Software and DIY advocate, I have also been volunteering as Project-Leader for the multimedia flavor of the Operating System “Ubuntu” (UbuntuStudio.org) and am the initiator of the non-profit digital record-label and artist-management foundation Basspistol.com
