Progressive Biography

I was born in 1988. I'm a young man who studies Music Therapy in Nijmegen, Holland. I live in a the basement of a student-home. I play electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass and drums. Besides progressive music and music in general I'm also interested in: mental healthcare, world politics (ethics, conspiracies, etc.) and playing & composing music.

Some of my favorite albums (one album per band):

Magma - Live '75
VdGG - Pawn Hearts
King Crimson - Court of the Crimson King
Jan Dukes de Grey - Mice and Rats in the Loft
Comus - First Utterance
Kahn - Space Shanty
Kayak - The Last Encore
Focus - Ship of Memories
Camel - Mirage
Gentle Giant - Acquiring the Taste
Pink Floyd - Atom Heart Mother
Iron Maiden - Live After Death
The Soft Machine - Third
PFM - Photos of Ghosts
Banco - Banco
Osanna - Palepoli
Can - Soundtracks
Grobschnitt - Rockpommel's Land
SBB - Pamiec
United States of America - st
Roy Harper - Folkjokeopus
Spirogyra - St. Radigunds
Pearls Before Swine - Balaklava

Focus (symphonic, classical influenced, jazz-rock), Kayak (symphonic, song-writing), Supersister (Canterbury), Finch (heavy, technical symphonic), Alquin (jazz-rock influenced), Group 1850 (space-rock), Earth & Fire (symphonic).
