Ex-ABLETON And TEENAGE ENGINEERING Employees Launch FOREVER 89 – Gear Gods
February 6, 2024 | by magnews24.com
Forever 89 is the new company founded by Rikard Jönsson, whose résumé includes the early days of Spotify and being Ableton’s sole Product Marketing Manager; and Svante Stadler, who has worked on everything from Teenage Engineering’s OP-1 to the Auxy’s iOS app.
Not much is known about the company at the moment aside from their love of late ’80s and early ’90s tech, and the two names behind it. It’s also unclear if this is going to be largely a software company, or if we’re going to be getting something like the OP-1 (and hopefully at a lower price point than the OP-1).
“The studio’s name pays tribute to the era of groundbreaking innovation that marked the late 1980s and early 1990s,” said Forever 89 of themselves. “It reflects the rapid transformation of the world during that time, characterized by milestones such as the emergence of the internet, groundbreaking successes in gene therapy, the widespread availability of GPS systems, the historic fall of the Berlin Wall, and numerous other significant events, all of which unfolded in the pivotal years around the shift from the ’80s to the ’90s.”
