I'm one of the very privileged people who for 30 years have been living from my creativity on a daily basis. I've learned the skills and tools of effective storytelling, world building and marketing through commercial use with the one primary goal, to sell as much stuff as possible. Now it is time to put this skill to new use and create stories and inspiration for the near future. Stories that potential can change the way our children and grandchildren live and act. Stories that try to capture this amazing moment in human evolution where we actually have the individual chance to change the way we use technology and pass on this planet we are so incredibly lucky to experience. Start living like we are an active part of it all instead of acting like this place is a 5-star resort where we are on an all-inclusive well deserved vacation and somebody else will take out the trash. Our great grandchildren will look back at this period, the way we look at the dark ages. They won't know us personally but they will see the results of our choices. "The things you DON'T do in live echoes in eternity. Stop making echoes and start making value for the future. Consider the future as your most important client. This client won't pay you with money but with an invaluable purpose of your life and creativity.
My first project on this journey is REBEL NATURE. A full-blown IP in development across multiple media platforms including app games, VR experiences, music, museum and science projects as well as a live action feature film “Waveborn” set in a near-future world where technology and nature has joined forces and humanity has become the endangered species…
REBEL NATURE sets out to be the first fully sustainable story universe where all activities are build around new sustainable solutions such as new innovative material to replace plastic, new ways to interact with the audience and rethinking the way we do merchandise and why.
We are a small group of dedicated professionals working to bring this to life and we are currently seeking funding and partners so if you want to be a part of a new purpose we are ready to talk. All collaborations are of interest as long as the future is the client.
Please share and comment. We are in constant beta and always ready to listen.

Here in the early 21th century the human civilisation is at a crucial point in time where we have the knowledge and technology to shape our future and make life on earth better for all. But at the same time the danger of not thinking ahead and go for short-term solutions and selfish greed is more present than ever. We have to take the concept of love and compassion and build it into every piece of technology we create.The mix between epic themes, storytelling and big emotions have always been the trademark of Cryoshell and from the very beginning back in 2006 Cryoshell has found inspiration in the clash between nature and technology. The robot on the beach in the early Bionicle legend is a good example and a good beginning. We humans have invented thinking machines and a world wide web connecting it all, but what influence will we have on the future of these creations. The coming album “Next to Machines” is inspired by this epic point in time where we cross over to the age of thinking and conscious machines.Now the message of “Nature boy” and “Nature girl” gets extremely relevant and what we teach the machines will be the key to survival. Love might be the most amazing invention and most important human survival skill.

Dear Cryoshell supporters, both the loyal fans from back in 2006 when the whole thing started and hopefully a growing number of new followers that will discover the band for the first time now.
We are extremely happy to finally start bringing out something new and this single is a very special song that has it's own history.
10 years ago "Gravity Hurts" was heard for the first time. Now a decade later "tension is rising" and this is the first time Christine has recorded the tune. The orchestration is a dream come true. To have a full Symphonic orchestra perform this tune truly shows off the filmic qualities of Cryoshell's music. A great collaboration between Budapest Art Orchestra, Mikkel Maltha and Peter Due arranging and Jacob Hansen mixing and off cause Christine on this demanding and emotional vocal.
We think this is the perfect way to kick off the next phase of Cryoshell. The sound of the band is evolving but the epic themes and big emotions are intact. You will soon hear more examples of what Cryoshell sound like in 2018 and both electronic and acoustic sounds will blend into the next album, "Next to Machines". The plan is to release a full album some time this spring and even issue a limited vinyl edition. Cryoshell merchandise is also on the drawing board and you will be the first to know when and how to get closer to the truth and to the band.
We are reissuing all the old Cryoshell material and this time on our own label. All material will be available on all digital platforms in the future. This is a new beginning and if you measure the warmup period we are more than ready for action. We are a independent company and all efforts are self financed so every download and play counts. Thanks for your support.
We can't wait to bring you the next single and hopefully it will launch within weeks. Something will also hit Youtube in a short while so as we have said many times "stay tuned"
