My music story is a journey into the unknown. Without any support, and often even contrary to my surroundings, I grew into this passion for the beauty of sound and rhythm. The Drama of the Gifted Child (Alice Miller) was my drama. I had to fight for my art, and to stand my man for doing what I really liked, persistently refusing to do what others liked. It was a hard journey at times, and I got to learn about the cruelty of ordinary man.
My recording story started in 1994 when I first began to record my inspirations. While I have had classical piano training, it did not capture my passion for music; instead I began to improvise from early age. And it was with a technique I call ‘spontaneous composing’ that I eventually came out as a musician.
I did not compose most of my music in the sense of using a composing technique for setting chords, harmonies and musical texture in each other. Instead I simply improvised; what for the jazz musician is the most natural way of making music can be applied to classical, new age and relaxation music as well. That it’s possible, my music shows it better than any other I ever found.
My July 2017 Improvisations came spontaneously, as a gift from heaven! After years of studying baroque music, especially J.S. Bach, improvising on jazz, blues and free-style harmonies feels like all chains have been raptured and the freedom to dream musically has been achieved.
