Welcome

A brief overview of my projects

Force of Music

Released in 1993 at Audio Works.
Some details: Part 6 was written 1991 for a media-presentation. When i lost a sound that was used in Part 7, the music improved even more. The dark, allmost imploding your speakers intro of Part 10 was made by a simple blow into the microphone. A bit altering and the sound changed into engines of a huge space vessel.

Waves in the Sky

Released in 1994 at Cue Records.
the Force of Music inspired me to compose more music! So within 9 months i had enough material to record a double album. This was no option for me so i had to select the best parts for this second album. I didn't change the worktitles on this one.

Blue Team

Released in 1996 at Groove Unlimited
I had this idea to create a story. The album was mented to support this story. So i wrote a short scenario of wich every track telling a part of the story.
Thanks to Jean-Paul van Engelen for the mixing and mastering.

To be released (2019?)
This album has a few memories written into pieces of music...
To remember the loss of loved ones, but also honoring the influence of the past

A BackStory

Music has always been an important part of my life. Starting with an electric organ at my parents home by playing melodies that i heard on the radio. I started to create my own music when i got my first synthesizer in 1985. In time when more devices entered my room i started to play music with some friends.

  • The first opportunity to compose music for others came from a company in Almere back in 1991. They were making a presentation (with 9 slide projectors) for the province Flevoland and they needed original music. It was the first time for me to compose music on this scale and on location, and for the company the first time to work with a musician.
  • In 1992 a new era of music started for me. I worked together for and with other musicians on several dance and pop projects.
  • In 1993 I published my first album: "the Force of Music" at the label Audio Works.
  • My second album "Waves in the Sky" (1994) was published at the label Cue Records.
  • Late 1994 I joined the symphonic rockband Salisbury as a keyboardplayer. This way i could develop myself more into a live performer. The band broke up shortly after we recorded our demo tape "the Next".
  • When i played this 3D game Marathon (Bungie) i came up with the idea to record a concept album, an albm with a story behind it. All the tracks on the album are a part of the story. This the Blue Team album was released in 1996 by Cue Records, with help from Jean-Paul van Engelen for mixing and mastering. Shortly after the release they organised a concert at "de Landing" (Eindhoven) where Jean-Paul and i gave our first live perfomance.
  • 2002 was the year to get back after a break into the music. I worked on a score for a movie called Iskariot.
  • 2017-18 found my way back to music, starting to stretch my imagination and my fingers...
  • 2019 the 4th album is at a final stage. Some tuning and tweaking need to be done, but it is almost ready
