Composer of instrumental music, with a preference for longer, progressive and complexely arranged pieces with lots of instruments.
Have played guitar for 30+ years, but I am probably a slightly odd type of guitarist. Not particularily interested in the guitar genre, not too keen on listening to long solos, etc. I don't enjoy playing for people - a party-killer, in short.
However, leave me alone with this wonderful tool (or the keyboard, which I play too), and I will start experimenting with it, searching for something to develop.
Strongly interested in classical music and anything remotely related to that. I want to construct music with a similar structure and complexity, although with other instruments, and in my own way...
During 2010-2013, I worked on a suite of related pieces, GUITARS PLAYED BY DS, with every sound played on the electric guitar. A major undertaking, and (all-in-all) 45+ minutes long, all complexely related and released in five segments.
During 2014-early 2015, the main focus was on an 'epic', the LONG INSTRUMENTAL, a progressive work with lots of different instruments and sounds, restless and complex. Recorded dark evenings, nights, and early mornings ... Some sections stand on their own feets and can represent the longer work: QUARANTINE, MYSTERY, and FANFARE. The 2014-2015 recordings also resulted in two shorter pieces: CAMBRIAN EXPLOSION and CLUSTER OF WARNINGS, the latter being among my personal favorites.
During 2015 I initiated a suite played on classical guitars - GUITAR STRUCTURES. It is a series of slowly changing ideas, a weave of melodies and harmony, the first section already out. The 2nd is almost completed, but I let it rest (not entirely satisfied with it yet).
I played guitars on Tolubai's wonderful ambient piece 'MEMORIES' (August 2015).
EARTHSHINE came out in January 2016; a darker and slightly dissonant progressive piece.
SILENCE out 1st July 2016 - collab with TOLUBAI.
IGNITION out in September (with TOLUBAI).
LET THERE BE LIGHT out 22th Sept 2016, with PuppyWolf.
20/11-2016: The OORT CLOUD PROJECT I-IX. An 18+ minutes long progressive synth-based instrumental, with lots of short guitar phrases integrated; related to the track Ignition. Took a year to record, a massive piece, based on variations on 2 themes from the first two minutes.
ONGOING: Apart from the 2nd Structure, also lots of segments in the DAW right now .. One set of recordings will become 'TheBestOfTwoWorlds", a longer progressive piece, with plenty of instruments.
