Creating his own blend of minimal, soundscape-laden atmospheric electronics in Hasselt, Belgium.

One of the true greats of ambient electronica sometimes reminiscent of Sun Electric on the live album.

Just discovered this artist, and I am very impressed with the breadth of his sonic work.
The best way I can describe this mans work is "Ambient tone poems".

Each track seems to have been produced with great care and attention.

Highly recommended to people who enjoy contemplative, meditative and exspansive ambient electronic music.
