Op.15 – The Oink Song

It is probably the most dadaistic, moronic piece I ever made ánd published (there are a lot of unpublished projects on my HD), but in my current flow of creativity, obviously triggered by the music apps that are on my new iPad, I made something with GarageBand that I think is not too bad. It […]

IPad Music

Last Christmas…I bought my iPad Retina. It took some time to decide about the platform, because actually I’m more into Android. But, iPad has some good MusicMaking possibilities, so I decided to spend that $300 more to buy my fourth screen 🙂 I’m now the proud owner of an Asus Notebook (6 years old, running […]

opus 14 – In Two Hours!

Actually in One Hour and thirty-two minutes; this was a quicky! Almost a year ago I finished my last piece. A year later there are a lot of unfinished projects on my Hard Disc, but none of them (well, maybe one – working title “Escher’s Dream”) will ever be finished. I wrote almost the same […]

Collaborative music making with Ohmstudio

From the Ohm Force newsletter: In 2000, a bunch of music geeks gathered around their computers, only to find themselves guided by a strange and mysterious power — the power of Ohm Force. It revealed to them the essence of audio processing which they used to create the now mythical Ohm plug-ins. But they had […]

Opus 12 – Mystic Land

Another Renoise project. This one was inspired by the Renoise Music Competition to make music for the RPG Immortal Empire. Especially the winning song, “Goddess of Fate” by Jacek Dojwa inspired me to write something melodic, instead of Just Some Noise. Well, it was quite easy to make the beginning, because I was extraordinarily inspired […]


While I was fully obsessed with Renoise this week, I had an hour spare time during my work last thursday and what else could I do as Making some Music? But: I only had the computer in my classroom at my disposal with FLStudio installed and only a few VST’s. The less the better, because […]

Opus 9 – Exceptional Synths

My opus 9 is inspired by Image Line’s Ogun synth, my newest addition to my VST collection. I tinkered with the sounds and made two chord patterns, one in A minor and one in C major. I also used the new synth Sawer, and some old friends, FLKeys, BooBass and Sytrus (for the guitar strumming […]


It took quite a long time for me to make a new piece of electronic music. Learning new programs (Renoise, Finale), and too busy with earning €€€ are the main reasons for the delay, but last week I felt it itching again, so turned back to FLStudio and started with a simple beat. Then I […]

Genesis – Just another untitled

This month’s issue of Computer Music is really awesome! The magazine is worth the money not only for the content, but – most of all – for the goodies. Every month a new piece of software, usually a VST plugin. This month it is the Genesis. It’s a beast.:-) Here you see it loaded in […]

Up and Down

My new piece. It’s called “Up and down” because first of all, after my eruption of inspiration, my inspiration went down and I had to struggle to finish my opus 6, which was built on a Rennaissance-like ostinato. Although I like my own Chord sequence, it was difficult to finish it, so I quit. I’m […]

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
    Martin Delaney – “Laptop Music”.
