This account is for my music and for my music only. I make electronic music. I use MixCraft 6 as my Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). My favorite VST-plugins are the Absynth 5 and Wollo Voyager sythesizers. For lucid dreaming I use PsyBox. For polish I use FabFilter Pro and Thrillseeker. My favorite piano is the excellent Pianissimo by Acoustica. For jazz trumpet I use Miles Tone. I use loops, pella's and one-shots from LooperMan and ccMixter. My favorite loopmakers for house and dance are the incredible people from FutureLoops. I play Gibson Les Paul electric guitar wired into the CPU using GearBox by Line6 for effects or the Boss ME-25 I also use for live-concerts with Bastardi di Blues (I love the wah-pedal). I think Brian Eno is one of the most erudite, intelligent, fascinating (and quietly, delightfully batshit crazy) people in the music industry for the best part of 45 years. I love this: 'I’m an anti-musician. I don’t think the craft of music is relevant to the art of music'. And this: 'I wanted to make something you could slip in and out of. You could pay attention or you could choose not to be distracted by it if you wanted to do something while it was on. I can’t read with a pop record playing, or with most classical records. They’re not intended to leave that part of the mind free – my mind, anyway'. I agree with Eno when he says: 'I think generally playing live is a crap idea. So much of stage work is the presentation of personality, and I’ve never been interested in that'. That's why, I guess, I don't have a 'stage personality', I'm too busy with my guitar and the sounds it makes. I think Eno's 'An Ending (Ascent)' is the most beautiful single ambient-recording ever. I think Moby's 'Hotel' is an essential album ('Snowball' is breathtaking). I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm still very fond of Enigma's first album. I believe that without '1983 (A Merman I Should Turn To Be) by Jimi Hendrix I would not be writing these lines, nor would I be making soundscapes. Finally but most importantly: I love collaborating with other musicians on my projects. I have worked with singer Phil Bee (formerly King Mo), Hans Clevers a.ka. STAX (saxophone) and Sandro Marinoni (saxophone - jazz Frames Italy). I plan to do more with them and with others. I'll close with this one, also from Eno: 'Music will always be a part of my life. I love music and I don’t care how many units I sell'.
