    As a musician he plays with sounds and vibrations, mainly the piano and the voice, but also with other acoustic and ethnic instruments.

     

    During his youth he wrote lyrics and music, genre singer-songwriter, and from the turn of the century he uses sounds instead of words, like speaking in tongues or glossolalia.

    He creates a safe moment of listening and a safe space, so he raises a meditative, calm and peaceful mood. Your thoughts, emotions and memories pass by. His music addresses all your senses, so quietly you get back to yourself. Afterwards you feel reborn and you go on with new insights.

    From early on he learned to play the piano en the guitar at home. At the age of 14, he took his father's guitar to his room to play intensively and to compose.

    He felt attracted to the lower sounds, so he lent a bass guitar from a neighbor to explore that instrument. In 2007 he bought himself a double bass, the king of the bowed instruments.

    The soprano recorder, which he learned to play in school at the age of 9, sounded too high and too sharp for him. At the age of 15 he discovered the tenor recorder, which is bigger and sounds low and gentle.

    He felt his self-made hand drum too shallow, so he made a bigger host drum, which sounds much lower. You feel those low vibrations trembling into your belly. That's a natural way to stay grounded in the here and now.

    His first harmonica was a gift for his 18th birthday, together with a holder to play the guitar or the piano at the same time.

    Later on he added some ethnic instruments like mouth harps, a blowing horn and a conch or blowing shell, some self-made ones like the didgeridoo, the native American flute, the chain of walnut-shells and he makes rhythms on wood with sticks.

    For the Piano Solo-performances he combines the piano with vocals. His compositions are musical sound-stories. The repetitive and minimalist style is meditative to dream away as a listener.

    With the acoustic and ethnic instruments he gives Relax Concerts. You surrender totally to the music; read: the variety of sounds and vibrations from the diverse instruments.

    .

    Our body contains more than half water. Sound travels faster through water than through the air, so we feel more vibrations than we hear them. You relax very well, while your thoughts, emotions and memories are passing by. The subtle vibrations give you an inner massage, you float in a bath of sounds. After the performance you return out of the deep relaxation and you feel reborn with new insights.

    Athens-Retreat 2018

    Mon 29 October - Sat 3 November

    I am what I feel

     

    The land of Goddess Athena, the city of Athens, will reveal us all the ancient knowledge and wisdom that we all carry within. Come with us to the “navel of the earth” as Zeus named Delphi, and experience high vibrational moments opening up completely to the earth and sky. Allow your inner “Oracle” to give you whatever information you need for your evolvement.

     

     

    A retreat is a period of several days of mental separation for a subtle introspection

    Music and Yoga blend well to achieve your mission in your life.

    Feel your dream to live it !

     

     

    Let yourself dive into your deepest oceans with the guidance of Poseidon. Connect with all the sensations of your body with the sacred practice of Yoga and Music ceremonies. A trip back to your “navel” a journey of concentration and connection with what you feel and who you really are.
