In Amsterdam (home base), he is gigging around performing material from his latest CD “The signs are everywhere” in which he introduces his Midi guitar playing and multilayered system, where different instruments sounds,(using a midi guitar convertor) can be recorded in real time and played at the same time on the principal of accumulating musical phrases in a loop device.
A new approach to the “One man band”concept.
