Ulf's Pan World on the Web
- Ulf started running WWWeb pages about Pan, out of Stockholm, early in 1995. This he called: The Pan Page - a Forum for the Steel Pan Instrument.
On it, he had reference to some of his research material about pan. Using open questions on his site, and through email, Ulf began to collect and include world-wide information about pan tuners, pan manufacturers, steelbands, pan news groups; and linked his site to anyone who had anything to say about pan.
Having produced and edited the digitised copy himself; in July 1995 Ulf placed the internet-ready version of his book Steel Pan Tuning, paper published in 1992, on his WWWeb site.
As Ulf took up his position as Webmaster at the Karolinska Institute [of Medicine] Library; he moved his entire WWWeb site at the end of 1996; and renovated it during the spring of 1997, to cope with the added influx of information, and to streamline the look of the pages.
In mid 2002, The Pan Page disconcertingly disappeared from the web. Ulf had changed his server and was applying some further visual and technical changes to his general pages. By the end of October 2002, Ulf was back on the web, running from a service called the Swedish Stockholm Music Museum. With a new look, and providing that quintessential quality service expected by the world Pan public at large, Ulf's World Forum for Pan, was back on-line.
Around early December 2004 Ulf moved his website once again, this time to the Hot Pans web.
- Ulf's The Pan Page has now grown to become the definitive Forum for Pan on the WWWeb.
- His book Steel Pan Tuning dedicated to
the rhythmic people of Trinidad and Tobago and their master tuners is now the starters text-book of the genre, and is located at:
