bass guitar

I started playing classical guitar at the age of 7 which I did for about 10 years until I took up an interest in jazz and improvised music and switched to the electric guitar. Soon though I found myself playing bass in all kinds of bands simply because there weren't many bassplayers around in my small hometown. In 1999 I moved to Amsterdam to study bass at the conservatory. The year 2002 I spent in Brussels studying with Michel HatziGeorgiou of AKA Moon. Apart from playing bass in Brown vs Brown, my interest goes out to composing and free-improvised settings. Currently I compose and do sound-design for choreographer Inari Salmivaara, am part of the N-collective, and play with Dirk Bruinsma in the Friendly Boys; a structured-free-improv duo. Other people I have played with are Morten J. Olsen, Anders Hana, Wilbert the Joode, Wolter Wierbos, and Koen Nutters.
