Discography

I’ve been playing music since 1990 and started recording as soon as other people could bear to listen to it. Over the years many recordings were made and some made it onto albums. For historical reasons, and to help my fading memory a complete discography is given below.


JK Groningen Noord

This album was released arround 1990. (Exact date unknown) It was in the good
old days of the cassette players. I was tenor in the Groningen North Youth Choir
and remastered a cassette with a number of our performances.

The Amaryllis Project

In the early days when i was learning to play the guitar more and more, i
recorded a cassette with the Amaryllis Project. All songs were handplayed
acoustic guitar tracks, recorded in a single flow. No digital mixing or
corrections. The mixing was done on a modified Sony tapedeck that i soldered
into a primitive 4 track recorder.

Lost in Static 19

Static 19 is the name of a project to bring the music of the Amarok Mailinglist members to the general public. It’s predecessor was called “Lost in Static 18”. This was a long and ambitious project, which lead to the creation of “Mike Oldfield Tribute CD”. However, the list members continued making beautiful music, which is now collected in a audio disc. As you can see in the tracklist, Mike Oldfield wrote almost all tracks, but they are played by list members, often in new, challenging arrangements. Some tracks are even taken a step further and are written by the members but have that unique Oldfield sound that makes us all a fan.
