Yeah about that

Born in 1983
First saw drumsticks in 1988
Became a vegetarian shortly afterwards
Studied music at Codarts, Rotterdam from 2002-2007

Toured all over Europe with FINK in 2017, and will continue to do so in 2018
Has a big love for vintage instruments and gritty sounding drummy things
Has a big love for glitchy electronic happenings
Has a big love for combining the latter by looping and sampling sounds and screwing them up with Ableton Live
Likes recording, playing live music, and favorite colors
Used to be in a band called Woost
Is in a band called WEVAL, which sampled a lot of the aforementioned band's vocals
That is so meta!
Has been playing with EEFJE DE VISSER for a while. Visser in Dutch means fisher, and contrary to popular belief, this does not influence the music whatsoever
Currently is also making music with the likes of SOFIE LETITRE, ELLA, HET UNIVERSUMPJE, RUBEN HEIN

Has (had) fun working with music production enthousiasts such as Flood, Tchad Blake, Liam Howe, Stew Jackson, Simon Akkermans, Ferdy v/d Singel, Reyn Ouwehand, David Hoogerheide, Fin Greenall, Martijn Groeneveld

Can be found teaching music at the HERMAN BROOD ACADEMIE and occasionally at the AMSTERDAM CONSERVATORY

Video

Looping, electronic stuff

Here I make a cymbal loop using the overhead mics, which both run through a Soundtoys Crystalizer plugin to try and mimic some of the reversed effect that's on the album
Fooling around with altering pitch of live drums - using Ableton Live, Soundtoys Primal Tap and a Leap Motion controller to change the pitch and freeze the delay
Combining some live sample and audio looping here.
A little re-creation of an intro we'd play at live shows. Making it a little different every night, I'd sample some small percussion or whatever was within reach and sounded nice, and then run it through a bunch of plugins

Recording

Much like everyone, I have the ability to capture sound in my own little studio!
I like to record drums, so get in touch if you would like some on a song. I have some nifty mics and oh boy, some mic stands too.
Contact me for info: . Below are some examples, some more will follow.

Drums recorded by me / production and mix: Mathias Janmaat and Tjeerd Bomhof
Excerpt from a song I did for Belker. Devil-Loc Deluxe working wonders
