Hi there, thank you for visiting my site! If you already clicked on some pages and/or posts, you probably noticed that this site is about music and music production.
In 1987, I was 11 years old, Santa gave me my first keyboard. It was a low budget Casio keyboard, but it had a very simple sequencer onboard which allowed you to record your own efforts. From that moment on I knew I wanted to create my own music and my dream was to have a recording studio….
This was my studio logo in ’88 🙂
Ten years later, I went to the Rotterdam Conservatory to study keyboards/music production. The first couple of years I was more into piano/keyboard playing than sequencing/studio technique (the main subjects), but after an chronical injury (focal dystonia), due to studying too long, I had to choose the latter.
Around that time, my neighbour, who was a radio reporter, asked me if I could write some background music for his reports. He said that it was difficult finding the right music for that, because most of the stock music they had was too bombastic, too noisy. I wrote a couple of tracks and he liked it. Since then I focus on making music for media and the resulting music library has been used often on Dutch national radio and TV, to this day.
