I come from a family where my grandfather, father and uncles where making music in a marching band. Raised with music all around me I started playing my fathers "Melodica Alto" and shortly my first keyboard, the famous "Casio SK1". During my time working as a volunteer at the Astronomical Observatory in Rijswijk I played in the synthesizer band "Floating Spheres".
I started writing more and more music of my own with the keyboards I bought over the years. All connected to my Atari ST 1024 computer running Cubase by Steinberg. Loads of tapes I filled with songs and instrumental landscapes.
Later I converted some of these tapes to the cd's "Collection" and "Dreams".
After meeting Jan Knetsch, I joined his band "Lekker Belangijk" as a sound engineer. Later I started to play in the band as keyboard player. We had a great time performing at bars and in clubhouses. It is great to make music with others, you develop your own style, but learn so much quicker. Making music together gives an enormous boost of energy. in 2010 I left the band that transformed to a Brit pop band with the name The Netz. Not that I did not enjoy playing together, but some of my priorities changed.
The music connection I had with Jan and his brother Marco while playing in the band did decide us to bundle our differences and creativity to start the music company KSK Productions. With KSK Productions we are creating a lot of music for very different projects; musical songs and music, children songs, holiday songs, music for documentary and video or music for games. It is really great to hear your music in a performance or a broadcasting of a documentary or soap. Cubase is still at the heart of my home studio.
Together with Pearce Music Services and Peuteren.nl we started in 2011 a special project, Melodies from the Heart, to create music and songs to help parents and loved ones with there grief when a young child has died.
My music is created in my project studio. The music is most of the time created in the box, so a good computer setup and the right acoustics will do the trick.
And many more...
