Making Music... is creating thoughts.

"Oude" liefde roest niet

last update 4/9/21

Het Covid-19 virus heeft op 1 januari 2021 the deathstroke toegebracht aan het full-time Webdesign en Fotografie gebeuren. De opdrachten lagen nagenoeg allemaal in de Horeca. Tja….it happens, maar aan de andere kant heeft dat weer oude, verroeste en afgesloten deuren geopend. Overigens….Webdesign en Fotografie opdrachten zijn nog wel mogelijk voor particulieren.

Oude liefde roest niet….Bloed kruipt waar het niet gaan kan en zo werd de deur naar de muziek weer geopend. Hoe het zich zal gaan ontwikkelen….geen idee. dat is iets wat je nooit weet in de MusicBizz maar aan de andere kant…. I don’t mind as long as I can make music..

Biography

At an early age I started taking piano and guitar lessons, but quite quickly became more and more interested in composing my own music. After quitting the guitar I spent most of the time at composing for keyboards.  

Got my experience as a keyboardplayer in the local band Intro Quint and I formed my first bands named ‘Phosphorus’ and ‘Black Monday’, but it kept in a sort of play for fun status and after a while I wanted more and was looking for  a more professional oriented thing….

With a newformed band ‘FRIDGE’ (Schwarz – Vocals, Groeneveld  – Bass, Velasquez – Guitar, Streitwolf – Drums and myself as a keyboardplayer) we managed to set up a songlist in about two weeks and were asked as a supporting act for the wellknown band ‘Q65’ on the Scarborough Fair Music Festival in 1984 in the NCC (Nederlands Congresgebouw) in the Hague.

I noticed that I needed to know more about harmony, chords and musical theory to get deeper in composing songs, so I took  piano lessons in Amsterdam by Allert Troost ( former guitarist of ‘Solution’ as  well as piano and session musician) who teached me more about the deeper meaning of different musical styles as Jazz, Blues & Rock, recording techniques as well as the Great composers Chopin and the complicated theory of ‘Schonberg’.

I was invited by a sexy looking lady, who pretended to be a singer and had big plans to form a super band. There was an audition where various musicians were invited. Unfortunately, this lady’s words were greater than her singing talent and it came to nothing.

During that audition I met guitarist “Adje” who eventually became a lifelong friend in addition to being a fellow musician. Together we played in several local bands from The Hague to Amsterdam. When one day with Adje strolling through Amsterdam we suddenly met the great Curtis Knight who lived on the Keizersgracht at that time. Curtis Knight, better known as lead singer / guitarist of Curtis Knight & the Squires’ in the 1960s. The band in which Jimi Hendrix also played as a guitarist.

With Curtis, I had some  memorable meetings that I’ll never forget, where he talked about the times with Jimi and when he gave Jimi Hendrix his first electrical guitar. Curtis and me worked on some musical ideas for new songs, but sadly enough it never developed. Curtis got very ill and died of Cancer. I still remember his last performance on a Blues Festival in Scharredijke. His big smile, his feathered hat and the lovely spaghetti prepared by his girlfriend are one of the many fond memories.

I took private singing lessons at a singing school in Amsterdam for about a year and became interested in Styles as Trance, Ambient, Chill Out, Dream House and New Age.Was inspired by ATB, Robert Miles, Underworld and Moby. Meanwhile in the nineties I wrote some New Age songs that were also played at the radio stations Oibibio Radio and New Dance Radio. Next to that I composed Tranzone I and II for a Club in the Hague and released Erotic Music for Adults, inspired by “Enigma”.  Because of not being completely satisfied with the quality of the things I recorded, I started with building my own recording studio and and became more and more interested inthe process of audio engineering.

I released my music on the Internet, the new medium at that time. Got a contract at Peoplesound UK and Vitaminic UK where I released Tranzone I and Tranzone II on a mini album named “Principles of Lust”  Next to that, I started recording my second album “The Project” with Erotic Moods, DreamHouse, Trance, Experimental and Ambient songs.
