Tingsek – Something to live for – is a documentary about the willful soul musician Magnus Tingsek, directed by the Swedish actor Patrik Karlson,
We meet Magnus during months of change. A move to another studio, in an already long list of studios, and preparations and rehearsals for a musical challenge and childhood dream: a collaboration with Vindla String Quartet and keyboardist Måns Mernsten. All wrapped in lots of music from two sold out concert nights at the venue Klaffbron in Malmö, Sweden.

”-Between rehearsals, moving and studio building Magnus speaks candidly about the choices and sacrifices he has done to be able ”do his own thing” without the involvement of too much commercial forces” says director Patrik Karlson
This is a story of an, in many aspects, uncompromising man and his career choices. Choices that may seem odd in a time when the road to fame more often go through different reality show competitions.

Tingsek released his first solo album in 2005 and has since released four more albums. He has a big fan base in Sweden, but it also stretches out all over Europe and to the rest of the world. He is frequently hired for collaborative writing with many of Swedens most famous artists and also as a producer.
In 2007 he was voted Swedens sexiest man by Elle Magazine.
