PERFORMS

 

I cannot imagine a life as a composer without performing. Nor can I imagine a life as a performer without composing. They are the perfect lovers, who continuously push eachother across new boundaries, while also reminding eachother of the simplest things.

Playing improvised music (first in/on the piano, now with live-electronics) has been an essential part of my artistic life for almost 20 years now. Some groups I am part of are collectief reFLEXible (with Thomas Olbrechts, alto saxophone, and Joachim Devillé, trumpet and FX) and Ministry of Bad Decisions (with Yaron Deutsch, e-guitar, and Brian Archinal, drums). Though I very much like the 'blind-date' situation that occurs so often in improvised music concerts, I also treasure some long-term relationships with specific musicians like Matthias Koole (e-guitar) and Peter Jacquemuyn (double bass).

Here are some online audio recordings of improvisations:
