Remember Homs

This tune I dedicate to the people from Homs, one of Syria’s ruined cities. I wrote it when the news came in that Homs was lost and back under control of Assad’s murderous clan. For what we know of the situation, they say there’s very little left of…

The Raging Feale

The Feale is the river that runs through the village of Abbeyfeale where I was last October to join the traditional singing festival and when this tune arose the river overflowed it’s banks, inundating the whole GAA field. It’s been a very wet weekend in…

Sugar Max

This tune sprung into my head while the news came in about Mark Zuckerberg’s new born Daughter Max and since “Zucker” is German for Sugar, I called the tune “Sugar Max”. I wish the girl a happy life, in spite of her enormous wealth, the spot…

Leny’s Travels

Impressed by the wanderlust of Leny, a supple old woman I met today, I named this new tune Leny’s Travels. Hope to see her home safe and sound from her next big adventure to the other side of the world. Please feel free to learn the tune and…

Old Hag In The Corn

Here’s another new tune I made the day before yesterday. I called it “Old Hag In The Corn”, because I had been struggling with a weird kind of poem in Dutch about an old hag in the corn, who didn’t like the choirs (choirs and corn translate…

Christian’s Bouncing Ball

Slow, fast or simply both? What version would you prefer? Let me know if you’re on Facebook.     What you hear are two completely different computer outputs. A slow one with a flute and an awesome church organ (never played that, but I’d love to) and…

Looking For A Room

New little tune called “Looking For A Room”, because that’s what we were doing yesterday for my son who wants to move to Amsterdam for a while. Got some great tips from friends that live and work or study there. Thanks! Still not there though,…

December Clouds

After a couple of nice time lapse videos of the November sunsets, December 2015 started surprisingly well. It was a dreadful rainy day all day until the hour of sunset. Shortly after 4 p.m. I went out with my camera, but I went back into my office,…

November Clouds

This month, November 2015, I made three time lapse video’s of the morphing clouds lit by the setting November sun and I gave them the titles ‘November Clouds part 1’ to 3. Because I’m also experimenting with MuseScore, I’m creating more and more tunes and selected some of those…

Opeens Was Het Voorgoed

Tribute song in Dutch to my dad for his birthday. I still miss him, although he died so many years ago. Quick home recording, June 2014.   Lyrics Ik moest je al vaak missenMaar opeens was het voorgoed‘t is niet bepaald sinds gisterenIk zie je nog zo…
