April: The new album 'Wonderful Beyond' has been mastered and oh
boy, it sounds great!!! This album took one year to grow and the
mastering really brought it all together. I'm so happy! Now I
will focus on the artwork again.
Mastering is set at the end of April. Headspin Records is
going to release the new Astral Son album on vinyl!!! Release
March Astral Son IV almost ready for mastering. Started painting
a possible artwork... Let's see if I can get this thing on
Oh, here's an live electronic music event...I'm going to play
some as well...
February 2018. Still going strong. Much has happened inside the
studio. I acquired some new gear and build wooden cases to
integrate them in the studio. It all looks very nice now and it
works fantastic. For electric guitar I finally have a mega
pedalboard that serves all my needs. It took me many years to
gather all the effects. New to the family is a looping device.
For live sequencing and synth twiddling I now have a perfect
minimal set which includes the Moog Sub Phatty, a Reon Driftbox,
Nord Lead Rack and two sequencers. That's a lot of knobs and
possibilities! I have to think about this live set because I
will need it on the 16th of June, later this year in Groningen.
I made recordings of jamsessions that I did in the studio.
Synths, sequences, organs and some guitar. Mostly simple
recordings, some with overdubs. I am sorting them out and maybe
I will release some of it.
Furthermore I am still working on the new Astral Son album. It
has been taking shape over a year. Slowly, slowly it is nearing
Son of Ohm was nominated for the
Schallwelle award 2017!!

May 2017: I'm in the
process of making a new Astral Son Album. I may have a couple of
surprises, more about that later!
an incredible year it has been!! I am thankful for the many
opportunities it has given me! First the Silver Moon CD was
released at Sulatron Records. That gave Astral Son a real boost.
I completed the Astral Son Trilogy by releasing Mind's Eye on CD
(Sulatron) and vinyl (Headspin). What an incredible ride it has
been making those three albums in my little studio. And watching
them grow in the big outside-world. People connecting to the
music, radio, reviews and interviews
in printed magazines... With Mind's Eye I sure didn't make it
easy on listeners, haha!! But it had to be done. After Turn on,
Tune in there had to be a Drop out, right? Now I'm free to make
whatever new music I please.
A special mighty Thank You to Dave&Lulu at Sulatron and Clio at
Headspin Records for getting the music out in this world!! You
are the positive people!!
The Magic Buzz is getting stronger, my friends!
Love, Music and Yoga! Do it!!
Mind's Eye did very well. I'm so happy everything went smooth
before the end of the year!! There were so many difficulties
during production and it wasn't sure if the vinyl could be
released in 2016. But it did!!!
The album is included in some 'Best of 2016' lists and
I'm very proud of that!
Alongside some of the albums that I got myself this year like
Kikagaku Moyo, Constantine and Sun Dial. Great!!!! This means
recognition for the work I do. Also recognition among fellow
Inside the studio I also made some changes. I got myself a Moog
Synthesizer, at last!!! This autumn I made an electronic album
and it will be released somewhere next year. Unfortunately my PC
broke down so I have to get a new one, which means no money for
mastering. So be Patient for the new Son of Ohm album. It is
different, but if you dig the electronic sound of the seventies
you'll love it.
I'm full of ideas and inspiration so I can't wait to get back to
the studio again!!! See you somewhere in 2017!
