Also in Minimal 3 one can find residues of my first musical impressions, mainly jazz and pop music from the fifties and sixties besides some classical music. Those impressions are later of course flooded, eroded and weathered by the elements of other music from the 20th and 21h century with all his experiments and state – of – the – art improvements.
But still those roots work like a kind of gravity on with my musical ideas and explorations circle about.
Minimal 3 is dedicated to DUO NIHZ Sanna van Elst ( Recorder ) and Bobby Rootveld ( Guitar).
