Wingren has dedicated most of his life to studies in percussion and his career as a free-lance musician. His drive for expanding his knowledge has taken him to places of special musical interest like New York, Rio de Janeiro and Havana for in-depth studies. Though the folk music tradition always has been the starting point, the use of percussion in jazz and progressive electronica has been his focus the last couple of years. By widening his field of work in this direction a lot of new possibilities have opened up with the use of samplers, looping-techniques and computer based gear. The integration of new technology in acoustic music has resulted in Wingrens most ambitious project to date, Soundscape Orchestra which is a quintet playing futuristic electronic jazz based on productions in Ableton Live
