But perhaps Lundsten's most distinguishing characteristic is his deep love for fantasy and the human imagination, both of which are enshrined in his famous home studio, Andromeda. Housed in the pink 19th century castle where he's lived for decades, Andromeda is a peerless creative space that Lundsten has made into a parallel world. Inside, amidst psychedelic wallpapers and countless odes to Swedish folklore, are dozens of synths and other instruments, many of them homemade and deeply unconventional. (One responds directly to the user's emotional state.)
Until recently, Andromeda was open to anyone who applied for a visa (applicants were asked how many times they've been reincarnated, and lengths of stay ranged from one nanosecond to one year), but now the studio has been donated to Music Development And Heritage Sweden. On the last day it was open to the public, RA's photographer got inside with his camera.
