Digitally distorted miniatures (2003)

Released by me on the Olé records label, initiated by Pieter Kock of O Tannenbaum fame. An album, more or less like Sprokkelkennis only with more guitar and vocals. Button up remix is made for the new Button Boss button maker of the Halfwithal, Nijmegen. Traveling emix is a remix of a Lee Scratch Perry track. The track Dinner is Ruined is an homage to the Canadian band fronted by Dale Morningstar.

Most of the tracks are pretty distorted, pitched, and speed up. The guitar tracks sound a little similar to John Frusciante’s Niandra Lades or Usually Just A T-shirt more-than-excellent album.

I found the album on Youtube, but it is also available of Spotify.

None (2002)

Recorded on 4-track tape with a microphone, guitar and a Casio sk-1. This is one of my most intimate lo-fi albums. It’s on Spotify

Wasting previous summertime (1998)

This is the first album that I released as a Cdr and demo-tape back in 1998. It’s song-based lo-fi music in the same line as Beck, Ween, and Smog.

On this album I had fun experimenting with loops and beats. The samples and loops in these recordings are made with a prepared record player. The echo effect on Racecars and Horses is created with two cassette players. Other instruments and sound effects I used are Spanish guitar, melodica, television, and I made beats with Propellerhead Rebirth.

All songs were written and recorded between 22th and 29th of Juli 1998 on a four-track cassette recorder and digitally remastered in the spring of 2000. The original master was lost and the audio is taken from a twenty year old CDR meaning the first track has some glitches. Other than that it is exactly how it sounded in 1998.

Produced by Bertin. Thanks to Jaap Schuurman and Rik Simon.
