BJOOKS is the boutique publishing company started and run by author, designer, and musician Kim Bjørn after the success of his first international book, PUSH TURN MOVE in 2017.
Following his passion for design, music, technology, and people, Kim created PATCH & TWEAK in 2018 with Chris Meyer, and this book soon got the label "bible of modular synthesis." The foreword is written by Suzanne Ciani.
Latest in 2019 is "PEDAL CRUSH - Stompbox effects for creative music making" a 376-page tome which Kim created together with Scott Harper, known from his Knobs_demos YouTube channel, and with a foreword by Steve Vai.
Kim teamed up with brand manager Lars Juhl from early on, and together, the dynamic Danish duo has solid backgrounds in design, publishing, sales and music creation with decades of experience. Together with freelancers and collaborators, the team follow their passion for making beautiful, highly usable, and tangible products in a digital world.
Bjooks is often at music tech events around the world, ranging from NAMM, Superbooth, Synthplex, Moogfest, Synthfest, Loop, Soundmit, and Listen Festival, to modular festivals in Japan, and everything in-between.
The mission of BJOOKS is to create even more exciting titles about music technology, artists, and makers to document, inspire and explore the world of music creation.
