About me

Welcome at my website,

I'm an independent electronic and dance music maker from Heemskerk, the Netherlands, producing music with FL Studio 11. In 2013 i released my first album Odeceixe reunion. It contains 15 tracks varying from melodic electronic to (technical) dance music (electro, house, trance oriented). After this album i released several single tracks. My music is available at common download and streaming portals.

Besides producing my own beats i'm a demowriter for Tone2. Tone2 is an independent brand which develops high-end quality audio applications like ElectraX, Electra 2, Firebird, Saurus, Gladiator 2, Rayblaster, Nemesis and FX.

My love for music was born a long time ago and will sure be influenced by all the different music styles I've heard over the past decades. My roots in Electronic Music go back to the mid seventies, when i followed the pioneers of that time. In the early eighties i owned a few synthesizers like Korg MS-20, Poly-800, Yamaha CS10, AN1X, TG55 sampler and build my own modular synthesizer system.

Equipment and software were very expensive in those days so i build some of my own gear, a modular system based on the Elektor Formant Synthesizer with the CEM chipset (3310, 3320, 3330, 3340) and some FX like delays/reverbs based on the SAD1024 chip. I spend lots of hours above the soldering iron, the 741 chip amplifier never lacked.

My favorite artists of that time were Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Klaus Schulze, Jean Michel Jarre, Michael Garrison, Vangelis, Kitaro, Tomita, Peru ( Rob Papen ) and later music from Enya, Clannad, Enigma and many others music genres. I think one of the first synthesizer sounds i can remember is the chorus of 'My friend the wind' from Demis Roussos (1973) and who can't remember Popcorn (1972), Robert Moog, the sounds of the ARP 2600, Korg MS-20, PPG Wave and E-mu Emulator synths/samplers. I sold my CS-10 and MS-20 long ago, the only synths i still have are the Yamaha AN1X, Yamaha TG55 and my own build modular system. Beside electronic music i also love many other genres, one of my first vinyl records was 'Rock and Roll Animal' from Lou Reed, followed by albums of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, etc. I frequently played with friends with equipment like Korg Poly-6, Lambda, Roland Juno 106, Yamaha DX7, Solina strings, samplers, sequencers, FX, etc. all the stuff you now find as Vintage VST's.

My first encounter with Electronic Dance Music was through the Magik mix compilations from Tiesto released on Black Hole Recordings in the 90s. So i got in touch with music of Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Johan Gielen, Delerium, ATB, Gareth Emery and many others.

Thanks for visiting,

Ron

Odeceixe reunion

















Single: The hunt for the banana salesman

128 BPM G 5:10 min. Dance/Electronic/House

Track born from a few demos, i made for Tone2's Electra2 synth. The trackname came by coincidence, it should have something to do with bananas, i already had chosen the banana artwork. I remembered a funny trackname 'Drunken Mozart in the desert' at the solo album Stuntman from Edgar Froese (Tangerine Dream). So this one came up.

Single: Twin Summits

132 BPM C 5:05 min. Dance/Electronic

Techno dance track born from a demo, i made for Tone2 Nemesis. The Karakoram Highway, Valley of Silence (Western CWM), Khumbu icefall, seracs, carabiners, Gori Chen, Gimmigela Chuli (the twin peaks), Carstensz pyramid, the Seven Summits, K2, Eiger North face, Everest Base camp, Sherpa guides, Himalayas, to name just a few places and terms from the mountaineering world. I have read many books about mountain climbing with great admiration. Mountaineers like Ronald Naar, Edmond Öfner, Katja Staartjes, Hans van der Meulen, Wilco van Rooijen, Joe Simpson, Reinhold Messner and others took me along on their adventures as if i was there. I'm not a mountaineer myself, but I feel always happy to be there (the panoramic views, hiking and snowboarding). So, for this track i wanted a title related to mountaineering and called it 'Twin Summits', a combination of the Seven Summits and Twin Peaks like the Gimmigela Chuli, a mountain in the Himalayas with one peak in Nepal and it's subpeak (sister's peak) in India. Picture taken in Hopfgarten, Austria.

Single: Mi amor de amor loco

128 BPM A 4:34 min. Dance/Electronic

'Mi amor de amor loco' which means as much as 'I love the crazy love', is the title of my latest track. The main theme of this track is the ElectraX sample 'All this love' from singer, songwriter and producer Carol Hahn which i had used in one of my Tone2 demos for the Rompler soundset. 'Amor loco' (Louco Amor in Portuguese) is the name of a TV soap series (telenovela) i watched in the eighties, when i was on holiday in Odeceixe, Portugal. We used to diner every evening in a little restaurant in Praya de Odeceixe, where owner Joao cooked chicken piri piri for us on his half sawn barrel. Waiting for the food, enjoying our beers, we were having fun and watching the funny soap 'Amor Loco' on a small TV. An old sauce pan was used as an antenna. Picture taken somewhere between Petra and Anaxos, Lesbos. Greece. It is a drawing on a caravan that I found on a deserted and overgrown campsite.

Single: The voices of Nibazy

128 BPM G 6:54 min. Trance with vocals of Tuvan throat singers

The voices of Nibazy is a trance track with ethnic sounds from tibet, violins and vocals of Tuvan throat singers. The art of Tuvan throat singing is a style in which one or more pitches sound simultaneously over a fundamental pitch, producing a unique sound, more information about Tuvan throat singing at Wikipedia and Alash. Alash ensemble is a trio of master throat singers (xöömeizhi) from Tuva (Tyva), a tiny republic in the heart of Central Asia. Tuva historically had nine kozhuuns (districts) named Tozhu, Salchak, Oyunnar, Khemchik, Khaasuut, Shalyk, Nibazy, Daa-van, Choodu and Beezi. The ancient art of throat singing (xöömei) developed among the nomadic herdsmen of this regions. Alash remains grounded in this tradition while expanding its musical vocabulary with new ideas from the West. Picture taken at my garden terrace, the mirror comes from Populonia, Golfo di Baratti, Toscane, Italy.

Single: The Stiltwalker

126 BPM G 5:28 min. Electronic/Deep House

The Stiltwalker is the name of this Chill/Deep House track. It's a sculpture made of paverpol. It's a gift from an artist i know that is handicapped by a rare muscle disease. Due to this disease she is'nt able to create sculptures anymore. Picture taken in Anaxos, Lesbos, Greece merged with a photo of the stiltwalker.

Single: A part i

128 BPM D# 6:24 min. Dance/Electronic

Dance track i made from an old Saurus demo, i made for Tone2. Picture taken in Gazi, Crete, Greece.

Single: Patrified

135 BPM A 6:05 min. Dance/Electronic/Trance

I just misspelled the trackname a little, patrified in stead of petrified, turned into stone. Picture taken at the largest petrified forest park in the world in Lesbos, Greece. The age of the petrified forest is estimated at 20.000.000 years.

Track 2: Banished souls

128 BPM C 5:39 min. Dance/Electronic/Pop

The title 'Banished Souls' i made up after visiting the former leper colony Spinalonga in the Gulf of Elounda, Crete, Greece. The island was subsequently used as a leper colony from 1903 to 1957. It is notable for being one of the last active leper colonies in Europe.

Track 3: No war No More NO

128 BPM A 6:57 min. Dance/Electronic/Hip Hop/Dubstep

This track was born after i tested the Tone2 ComplexDroids soundset for the ElectraX sampler. I combined it with some kids and other voice samples, a Hip-hop beat, some dubstep elements and used a chorus i made up in the early '80's and had always remembered. I think no explanation is necessary for the title, let the sounds of war disappear forever from this planet. Better use war money for the development of prosperity for every cosmopolitan and solving other global problems. The symbolic artwork, a sinking tank into the sea, is a combination of a sunset in Anaxos and an old tank i discovered in Gavathas at the Greek island of Lesbos.

Track 4: Into the gale force winds

115 BPM C 5:15 min. Electronic/Pop

Since my childhood I have been impressed by the power of nature. I live close to the sea, when it's storming you can find me at the beach with my camera into the gale force winds. Since 2001 i publish storm footage online at Stormfoto.nl.

Track 5: 14K4

128 BPM D# 5:38 min. Dance/Electronic/Electro

The track 14K4 was born from a demo i made for the Tone2 ElectraX sampler Chiptunes soundset. This set contains sounds of classic computer and games consoles and remembers me to the '80's (Commodore 64, Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Atari ST, etc.) At the image my first ZX Spectrum with MIDI interface in the early '80's (DAW's, VST's, laptops and internet were not yet born).

Track 7: Bashir's trip

Track 10: Under full sail to the Donkey Island

128 BPM D# 4:54 min. Dance/Electronic/Trance

Chrissi island is also called 'Donkey island'. It's a very small island in the amazing turquoise colored Libyan Sea, 15 kilometres south of Crete, Greece. I visited it a few years ago when i was composing this trancy track.

Track 11: The beauty of patience

120 BPM C 4:43 min. Electronic/Pop

For me the beauty of patience is that when you have to be patient for one thing, you can put positive energy in other things. The picture i made in the Southwest of Portugal at the surfers beach of Ponta Ruiva.

Track 12: Old boys on boards

130 BPM G 4:31 min. Dance/Electronic/Acid House

Besides making music and photography, one of my other passions is snowboarding. I started windsurfing at the age of 15 (and still do when the weather is tropical), snowboards were not even invented then. I started snowboarding around 12 years ago, i love to cruise the mountains and feel the freedom of this sport. Because we don't have Dutch mountains, i regularly visit the indoor slopes to snowboard with other (old) boys and girls. The oldest 'boy' i know is 74 (respect). Photo of 'me as the flying Dutchman' taken at Snowplanet by Martijn Holling.

Track 13: Moneverble

128 BPM A# 7:06 min. Dance/Electronic/House

It's sometimes funny how a track title is born. I saw the word 'Moneverble' in a product review of a Nitro Rook snowboard. One of the features of the board was that is was not super moneverble at low speed. Cause i did'nt know the meaning of this word, i searched at Google and only found 1 hit, to the article i was just reading. I think it's rather exceptional to get just 1 hit on a Google search, so a track title was born. Still don't know the meaning of the word. I made the picture of the pow trees in Neu-Astenberg, Germany.

Track 14: Spume

120 BPM D# 6:49 min. Electronic/Dream Pop

Dreamy rave track. Spume is another word for sea foam. Picture taken in IJmuiden, the Netherlands.

Track 15: Odeceixe reunion

128 BPM D 4:19 min. Electronic/Dream Pop

Odeceixe reunion is the title track of my album with the same name. Odeceixe is a little village at the Southwest coast of the Portugese Algarve. I visited the village and the beach of Odeceixe a few times in the eighties and recently after 25 years in 2011 (my reunion with Odeceixe, still as beautifull as 25 years ago). It was there i got the idea to make music again, after a long pause of not making music at all.
