‘‘If you can’t say it with words, try it with music’’

Flemish musician ( born 1976 ) from Ghent ( Belgium ), living and home- composing on Funen, Denmark.

I have been playing music in the last 22 years.
My instruments are guitar, bass, piano, harmonium, kokles ( Latvian harp), garmon og bajan( Russian squeezebox og accordeon), blues harp, saxophone, drums and pshina.

I am an autodidact musician. I mostly improvise, so I can only replay my music ‘roughly’ the same way…

I bought my first digital piano in 2009, one year after a dramatic workaccident with traumatic consequences her in Denmark.

I started my first recordings in Audacity on a very cheap ( free) old computer with XP OS and 40 Gb harddisk with small RAM in the dark winter of 2012. So I have quite recently begun analog recording with my digital piano Roland F-110.

Since that time I realized that composing relaxing filmmusic was both a way to express myself and a solution to come over the multi-crisis in my life.

Nowadays I use my own music to cure my body which was affected of that traumatic experience back in 2008. Composing music kept me strong and helped me to find a way out.

Music can be someone’s own private natural painkiller…

All the sounds I have her on soundcloud are electronically recorded works in progress and most of dem not finished or mastered yet… but I can tell that my improvised works are inspired creations of the moment in which I am composing…

The mixing happens instantly by myself while composing my music and all the pictures I use are made by my own camera…

The final mastering of my music will be done by my friend and soundengineer Jan Harries (SIDwave), whom is an expert in electronic sound.

I have always dreamt of making filmmusic one day as a profession and I really hope that day will come…

Collaborations or small cinematic projects are welcome!

Enjoy my music!
