Close to the essence

Changes! Who doesn’t know about it? Well, one thing is for sure: I’m really close to a big change. Big change in my life really. The good news: you will hear all about it via the Ambient.Zone, sooner or later.  The reason there’s a bit of delay publishing new shows right now …  yes, I know. Sorry, this has to do with the current situation.

To offer you a sneak peek: I’m leaving Rotterdam. Leaving this place after 14 years. And where do I go? A place far away from Rotterdam but very close to the essence of my life. Let me post more about it in January/February. I will have more details by then, when things flow into the next phase: the actual planning and realization.

NEW release: Atlantic Treasure

I’m really excited to tell you about what’s coming ….

AT_wide_1280

After many years I’ve grabbed the DAT tapes and digitized tracks from the earlier Atlantic Treasure album, to take them to my lab and do something amazing with them. Some material has been in the archives for 22 years (!) After listening to all the tracks and adding a new track, something magical happened in the studio: the story came back to life again! Suddenly I was experiencing all the pieces at a very intense level, went through an inspiring mastering process, got even more excited as I could hear a growing spectrum of frequencies, deep dynamics, well balanced melodies that started to convince me very strongly about what the Atlantic Treasure is all about …..

Thoughts: what is this place?

Rotterdam, march 25th 10:12AM – Looking through the window….. it’s deep dark grey, it’s rainy, it’s March, it’s the one that comes after February, it’s more or less the same. Perhaps for most Dutch people it is nothing special and even ‘typical Dutch’ weather. I can tell you: I’ll never get used to this view honestly, I’m more the type of guy that gets his energy from the sun, making plans for the day, activities outside, combined with a few things that will be done inside. This is also known as Freedom. Hmm, what did I just mention here?
