« boerd » (pronounced bored) is the alias of swedish musician/producer Bård Ericson.
Bård started out making chiptunes around the age of 15 (in 2006), and after a few years in the netlabel chipscene, he began experimenting with other styles of electronic music. Since 2011 he has released five EPs and three albums as « boerd », and have developed a quite unique sound – a melodic and dreamy mix between ambient, techno and downtempo, often using acoustic samples of piano, guitar and voice that he records himself.
Bård has played his electronic music live in Sweden, Norway, France, Italy, Netherlands and Finland, and has shared the stage with artists like Bonobo, Owl Vision, Dubmood, Goto80 and many more.
Bård has also studied classical music at the Royal Music College of Stockholm, and is working professionally as a double bass player in different symphony orchestras and opera houses in Sweden.
