"WHEN I WAS A KID, I WAS HOURS OLD WORKING ON
NEW MELODIES.
I LOVE IT!"

".... I already found out you can hold a violin like that.
Pling plong like a guitar.
What! Wow, really cool!"

"INCREDIBLE, BUT REALLY TRUE....

 

A Unique story

 

When I was a kid, I spent hours making melodies. delicious! On the street, in the park, at school, at home. Well, not really. Moments of dreaming away and making music on feeling. Create your own harmonies. like The Sun itself. But yes, you suddenly have to do all sorts of things. You know, you know. 'This is how it should be' and 'this is how you do things' ..... Neatly in the stride. "Pay attention, huh? Yes I can see, you're dreaming," said a primary school teacher. ". You look way too much out the window, Bart. Why don't you come over here and finish your sums? Stay in tune. Otherwise, nothing will end up with you. And you know it!",

 

I do it my way

 

I've always been looking for space, for freedom. Discovering how the world works. When I was a kid, I could entertain myself for hours. Draw and play with lego. Usually without an example. or just stare at falling snow for hours. Singing where you could echo. in the bathroom of course, in large buildings, at stations. In churches, even when there were no people. The sounds are created in space. Especially in stairwells you have cool reverberation. Even where I once lived. I've always done that. Improvise on the spot. No invented rackets, just find out what that sounds like. Really enjoy!

 

It started with the violin once.


Seven years of playing the violin at a very young age. Etudes and classical music of sheet playing. I just did, but I didn't really like it. And somehow I really didn't see any future music in that either. It was a little flattened with that. Studying a lot in this way really felt like being drilled. Not romantic like that. Okay, we'll see. For seven years I played the violin, with a short trip to the viola, because I was already a big guest with big hands. Actually way too big for a soprano violin.

 

From violin to guitar


Before I started my seven-year violin studies I discovered
That you can hold a violin like that. Plíng plóng, like a guitar.
What! Wow, really cool! That's when I knew what magic was. No one knew about my plans, of course. Much later in life, I picked up the guitar from my treasury.


The discovery of Exotic sounds


In addition to the guitar, I later discovered the exotic sounds with the didgeridoo and the djembé, which I also feel very attracted to. I recognized The Shaman in myself.  However, the guitar was never far away from me. That's why I chose my passion 10 years ago. To playamy Spanish guitar. Along with my voice. An enchanting combination!


Enjoy!
