Bits and Pieces is on Spotify!
In August this year I made my very own Demo CD, and called it Bits and Pieces. Last month, my darling elder brother called me and told me to have a look at a website he'd found. I have to admit, it took some persuading... but I signed up, and have allowed "them" to distribute my CD all over the interwebs. Or in other words, Bits and Pieces is now available to listen to on Spotify - as shown by the picture above - and available for download on Itunes, Deezer, Amazon MP3 and Go
Mon Livre Rouge - it's all on YouTube!
So here it is - the third and final movement of Mon Livre Rouge! Since this week all the video edits of Mon Livre Rouge are up for the close scrutiny of... well, anyone, really! The solo piano piece, composed by Jannum Kruidhof, was finished in October 2014 and recorded in the very same month. The artists responsible for making it happen are of course the aforementioned composer, plus the incomparable sound engineer Sara Theofilova, aided and abetted by fabulous cameraman Jel
Mon Livre Rouge - First Movement Online
I got the audio file of this recording last week. The video followed this weekend. And I have to say, I'm pretty stunned.

But it's something else to actually see it. So yeah, pretty pleased with myself right now. Since I've already told you lot all about the actual recording day, I'll now regale you with the story of me m
Recording "Mon Livre Rouge", by Jannum Kruidhof
A proper recording of a new piece is always something very desirable. Therefore Jannum, the composer and instigator of Walking the Wire, and I figured that since I knew “Mon Livre Rouge” anyway, we might as well try and put together a fancy recording at The Hague Conservatoire – I mean, where else is one to find a pretty Steinway D to play? We'd planned to do it last week Wednesday. And then I got the chicken pox. Apparently, I never had them. I'm still not exactly sure who i
Recording session at Artichoque Recording
It was about half a year ago that I really realized that the most recent audio recording I had of myself was from 2011; almost three years old. At that time, I had already been toying around with the idea of having a website. However, if I were to get a website, I'd have to put some audio files on it, too, and three year old recordings would simply not suit that purpose. So I set out to find a nice recording studio where I could record at least a few tracks but preferably a b
