Herman's boyhood infatuation of classical music has prominantly formed the foundation of his present musicality. Subsequently his fascination for "dance" led him into DJ'ing in clubs and local pirate radio stations, where he noticed the incessant evolution and metamorphosis of " dance " and experimental music. Yet, he didn't want to remain a passive onlooker and aspired to formulate his individual sound, by mean of acquiring synths and samplers. His objective was to combine his musical passion and esoteric ideology which resulted in an obscure and macabre but rhythmic and atmospheric sound. This project required an appropriate moniker, which could integrate and mirror all those constituents.
When wandering in Mexico he uncovered local mythology and found his alter ego: " Ah Cama-Sotz ", named after a giant bat which used his extremely elongated sharp claws to decapitate his victims. In the mid-eighties he recorded his first tracks, which were given airplay on a controversial Antwerp local radio station, " radio centraal ", 106.7 FM. While on the air he attracted the attention of an electronic/ritual band called " Hybryds " which resulted into a ritual-ambient project/recording for the Antwerp zoo: " Soundtrack voor het aquarium " (project by hybryds and vidna obmana). When listening to ah cama-sotz' recordings you will ascertain his mephystological values interpolated with rhythmical-ritual ambience and accentuated with industrial vibes.
Ah Cama-Sotz will transport your subconscious in a mythical universe where his alter ego " Ah Cama-Sotz " haunts the night and proliferates anxiety amidst every living creature. Ah Cama-Sotz' music reflects the epitome of mankind's mis(t)ery and (in)humanity.
