William Johansson (born January 21 1988) is a Swedish artist & composer. He mostly creates music in the minimalist & synth genre.

Music career

He started out as a solo pianist in 1994 (only 6 years old) playing at different events and later he started to take piano lessons. Later he became a part of Super Synth Farmacia, a group which made songs on computers and toy keyboards, later in 2002 they disbanded. He was also a member in a music collective called Borlange All-Stars. In 2006 Borlange All-Stars disbanded because they couldn't find anything more to express through their music. Also William's interest in his alter ego, DJ WeeJay, came to an end in 2005 so he retired the character. In 2008 he released his new soloalbum called "Reality After Midnight", after working with it for almost 1 year.

ywnthkrawft

In 2005 Willam decided to create the band Sywnthkrawft together with Gustav Jacobsson, Viktor Jacobsson and Daniel Thyberg (who later left the group). Between 2005 and 2007, they released three albums and three singles.

Although their inital sound was ambient inspired, Sywnthkrawft soon switched to a more instrumental synthpop influenced sound. They gained some success with the single, "The Photographer's Exceptional Pictures for Body and Mind". On 8 March 2007, it debuted on #1 on the Swedish chart Dalatoppen and held its position for 7 weeks. Their last album, "Goodbye, Spaceblade (Re-recorded)", were released only weeks before they embarked on a hiatus even though a new album (SK3 - The Space Musical) were in production and planned for a 2008 release.

While never formally breaking up, after "Goodbye, Spaceblade (Re-recorded)", William decided to concentrate on his solo project. As time went by William increasingly dismissed the possibility of reforming the band, since the three remaining members don't talk with each other any more. [cite news
