About Me

For more music, see also bit.ly/BaoBouMusic
========================
I realised that I am first and foremost a creator. Everything else is subordinate to this. I love picking up a guitar or drums or keyboard, and creating something. This is the basis of all my tracks here.

The engineering/mixing/mastering is not my favorite bit, and you will hear that in my tracks. Looperman and the great community has helped me enormously in understanding these topics, but I'm still such a beginner. It's also a frustrating process to me, and it sometimes wears me out.

I started in 2018 calling my music "sketches" because I realised they were unfinished, and incomplete in many ways. Now in 2022 I try to get closer to the full painting, but the truth is, if I concentrate on better sketches, I might well be a better "artist". I will try to improve, as a player, as a maker, and yes, as a producer.
And that process will never be finished, I think.

Thank you for helping me on that road!

My Music Sounds Like

I hope I sound like... Me, really. And that can be almost anything, from Rock to Latin to EDM to funk and back to blues.

I realise I still sound like... A bit of a mess, but I'm learning. Have any tips, questions or comments?

In My Other Life I ...

...work 12 hours a day. Unfortunately, this sometimes cuts into my music time, but then again, somebody has to pay for all the gear ;)
