About Me

Raised with classical music I started playing the violin at 6 years old. Two years later I started playing the piano too. However, after 8 years I had the stupid idea that playing classical music was not so cool Then I quit...

At the age of 18 I bought my first (and last) synthesizer, a Roland D5. Together with a small drum computer (Dr rythm by Boss) and a sequenser (Alesis MMT8) I tried my first steps in electronic music. But again, after only 3 years, I got tired of it all and quit again...

Only to have the fire relighted in 2011 when a new colleague introduced me to softsynths and DAWs. Since then I am addicted and this time it feels like it's here to stay :-).

Keys, violin and a bit of classical guitar. Just started taking saxophone lessons.
