Songs of Love (and Decay)

A couple of months ago I started a project in a new direction: writing songs for vocalist Evelien van den Broek. Culminating in a recording session last week at STEIM's studio 1, where we recorded three of the five songs. It was totally mindblowing to hear these very personal songs come to live in the hands of such a versatile singer. After the bulk of the vocal recordings was done we had fun recording handclaps and overdubs. Aside from finishing the two remaining songs, there is the big task of mixing the recordings. But what a great job!

Electronic Extravaganza

The Electronic Extravaganza took over Splendor on Thursday Feb 11. Every room packed with cables, computers and DIY electronics. A great evening. I performed a last-minute duo percussion set with tap-dancer Marije Nie and a set with Felipe Ignacio Noriega: live sampling vs live coding. Many thanks to the organizers from Monotak and STEIM!

David Bowie

My three favorite David Bowie songs. When his albums happened I was on another planet, until 1.Outside came along. Totally loved that one. Then nothing until about 2 years ago, when I decided to take on a Bowie project, (re)listening key albums (which is about any of them) and reading about it. Getting inspired by his way of working, his studio techniques. For example the Keypex use on Diamond Dogs, which is now part of my live setup. I feel lucky having bought and loved Blackstar before he died, so I could listen to it without the whole tragedy and weight of his death.
