Alexander Bard

Alexander Bard is a Swedish cyberphilosopher, music producer and highly sought-after international speaker. Along with media theorist, Jan Söderqvist, he is co-author of the globally successful The Futurica Trilogy – a series of three books which have been translated into over 20 languages.

Alexander Bard has given lectures on the philosophical, sociological and economic implications of the internet revolution since the late 1990s. Throughout his career, he has been a fundamental force in creating the Swedish music export sensation – making Sweden the world’s biggest per capita music exporter – and promoting a deeper understanding of the full dramatic effects of the information technology revolution (Sweden being the home of The Pirate movement, SoundCloud and Spotify).

»a highly successful international career as a songwriter and record producer«

Bard and Söderqvist’s latest book Syntheism: Creating God in the Internet Age set out to construct a completely new metaphysical system for the digital age, covering everything from the inner existential truths of the new physics to the radical utopian potential of participatory culture.

Alexander Bard studied Economic Geography at The Stockholm School of Economics in the 1980s while building a highly successful international career as a songwriter and record producer. In 1992 he co-founded Stockholm Records, which quickly achieved global success with bands like The Cardigans, A-Teens, and Bard’s own Army of Lovers, before being sold to Universal Music.

Even though he has claimed to be too busy with cyberphilosophy and political and spiritual activism to find the time for any more songwriting, Bard achieved No. 1 hit records in Europe, Asia and North America as recently as 2013. For several years he was also in the Swedish jury for the television show Idol.
