Everybody Happy On A Sunny Day

Sorry, this is not a spectacular composition, it’s just a funny honky tonk tune, I think, and if it makes one person smile or one child dance it’s been worth the little effort it took me to put it here. I called it “Everybody Happy On…

Sevilla Joy

The joy that I felt after booking a family trip to the historic city of Sevilla, Spain, lead to this tune. Thanks to MuseScore, I can easily write it down and share it with you, without the need for myself to make a perfect rendition. Computer output…

Water Tower

My grandpa was born next to a water tower, so that’s where the name of this new tune comes from. Did you know we have a water tower in Holland that looks like the ancient Irish round towers built near monasteries like Glendalough? And here’s…

Over 5000 Years

This new tune was named after my guess of the time when there will be just a few human languages left in the world. As human contact gets easier, more and more people speak the a few common languages. Let’s not worry too much about how the world looks…

Our Brain Down The Drain

Sometimes I just forget why I gave a tune a certain name. This tune is one like that. Maybe it had to do with the recent neo-Nazi dumb-asses that exposed themselves too often in the news last week. In this case it might be best I forget…

Lamma Bada Yatathana – Trad Syrian

Trad Syrian? Yep. No joke, no typo. To be prepared for a warm welcome of the many Syrian refugees that find shelter here, I wanted to learn a little more about Syria and there’s no better way than to dive into a country’s trad music. I haven’t played…

Nick Cave’s Mercy Seat in a piano loop

In August 2013 after hearing Nick Cave’s awesome song “The Mercy Seat” I spontaneously jumped behind the piano and tried to reproduce the chorus tune, which lead to this video. Because I have no ambition for piano work, but still like to save and share my…

Where Did She Go?

Here’s another tune I wrote. By the first time that I saved the tune and had to make up a name, I was wondering where my wife was, so that’s how I got to this title. Well, it sometimes happens.  🙂  Please feel free to learn the…

In Kerry You Can

Here’s a nearly forgotten tune I made in November. What I did forget is why I chose this name, but I liked it, so I kept it. I took the photo on the morning after the best music night I ever had on Dingle, October 2015. It’s…

Dance For The Chocolate King

This new happy tune could well make you dance, like we saw today in the Ukrainian parliament. Well, that wasn’t a dance actually. Oleh Barna, a puppet of the Chocolate King, lifted Prime Minister Yatsenyuk from the podium during his speech. The Chocolate King is the nickname of President Petro Poroshenko….
