a short biography
“Many moons ago I grew up in a musically rich environment, and it was quickly decided a proper instrument belonged to me. Whilst learning to play the guitar I drowned myself in a variety of artists and music styles. At home the audio system played Pink Floyd or Jean Michel Jarre, my syblings listened to Genesis and Synth pop and growing up i rebelled and listened to Metal and Industrial sounds, whilst vanquishing monsters in the games Doom and Quake or destroying the opposition of my all time favorite game; Red Alert. Soon i learned music oozed out of me. Rock bands conquered my mind and i started to explore own sounds. At the age of 16 I produced my own mix of metal and electronic music.
A proper education followed. I studied and graduated in Music Production (2006 - 2010) at Codarts, the Rotterdam Conservatoire. There I met an abundance of awesome musicians and soon my very first serious music project started; Sky Architect. As of today we released 4 full length progressive rock albums to much acclaim and play live around the globe. A career as a successful music producer and mixing engineer as well as a respected music teacher followed.
Synthesizer music always sticked with me and in the summer of 2017, I gave life to
s h a d o w s p a c e , the living embodiment of the electronic music composer in me. Soon I released three original synthwave tracks, the first of many more to come. The birth of s h a d o w s p a c e initiated the spark to follow the longtime ambition to make music for videogames.”
