It’s been ten years since I returned to music. I’m not really into anniversaries, but after these ten years I had the feeling that I had to make something tangible. And that has now become the ‘A Quiet Place’ CD. Thirty six minutes total in digipack with my paintings as artwork.
During the ongoing Covid-19 lockdown I have been extremely lucky to have not been too adversely affected by the restrictions, so I’ve been able to continue working on various self-generated projects including new paintings and a second revised edition of ZWAMVLOK (Mycelium). Is it a book? Well yes, it does look like a book.
There are letters, drawings, words, sentences, quotes, collages, lines, paintings, linocuts & pictures. Maybe it’s more of a collage, a 30-page graphic improvisation. This edition of ZWAMVLOK was for sale until February 1, 2021.
Under Prickling Stars is part of the 20×20 Project. Initiative of Neil Stringfellow (aka Audio Obscura). Twenty artists were asked to submit an album of sound, each album to have 20 tracks, each track to be 20 seconds long. No more, no less. Releases coming every 20 days from 20th January 2020.

Theo and I have worked on countless music projects over the past 40 years. I have learned a lot from his stubborn and headstrong views and methods of recording and mixing music. His influence on my soundscapes is immense.
I will remember Theo with great respect for the rest of my life.
