Back in 1986, I got my first analog, well, partially analog, synthesizer: a Roland Juno-106. Using an Atari 800XL and a music composing software, I began to compose and produce electronic music similar to Berlin School artists like Tangerine Dream, Chris Franke and Edgar Froese as well as other European artists like Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis. My music is a mixture of lush synthesizer pads, hard-beat sequences and strong melodies that create an atmosphere in which the listener's imagination is set free.
Over the years, from 1986 till 1994, albums "Projects I" till "Projects V" have been produced. During the course of 1991, together with a friend, I had formed "The Omega Project", an Electronic/New Wave band that produced songs and lyrics, which were sung by a female singer with a beautiful voice. Of this venture, a debut album was produced with the band name. After a stop-period of five years, from 1994 till 1999, in which I had attended other ventures, I had completely turned my home studio into a virtual one, whereas everything is done within the realms of the computer and dumped almost all my outboard gear.
The album "Solar Voyages" marks my return to music composition and production to be followed by "Retrospective", a look-back at past projects and music, assembling the very best from those works, re-doing them to fit the new times both from a personal aspect as well as a production one. Then followed the next studio album named "Nibiru". This album depicts the story of the believed-to-exist 10th planet of our solar system in which, according to ancient mythologies, reside a race called Annunaki. Ancient stories of extra-terrestrial visits of that race can be found in many ancient culture's stories. The album is an atmospherical one with mood that shifts from dark ambient to tribal rhythms. Nibiru sold well, was well received by online resellers as well as radio playlist owners.
During the course of 2004, a new project emerged titled "ambience", and was released on early 2005 and is attributed with up-tempo and energetic rhythm section as well as strong sequencers and structures. In 2005-2006, the studio album "blind vision" saw the light of day and was a natural advancement after "ambience", showcasing similar melodies and ambient space as its predecessor.
The studio album "atmosphere", which was released in 2006, took a different path than the previous two albums. '70 era melodies and structures dominate this release, using phasing and flanging effects as well as a plethora of vintage equipment.
Following ‘atmosphere’ is synergos. For this album I had built two devices. The first is a recreation of the Commodore C64 SID chip synthesizer while the second is a midi step sequencer, which was running the entire length of the album, nearly 40 minutes with all accompanying parts and some help from the computer.
Starting in the early days of 2008, I ventured deeper into the realm of do-it-yourself instrument building and initiated a project to built my own modular synthesizer. For this I had to put music making aside and devote my spare time to researching electronics, browsing forums for other professionals as well as ordering the required parts from various sources.
FInally by 2009 I found some free time from my modular synthesizer work to create ‘darklight’, an almost %100 analog album largely based on my newly built modular synthesizer. ‘darklight’ marks my full move to analog synthesizer music creation, fusing ’70 style analog music with modern concepts and sound to create a landscape that is fresh and new, yet provides that warm ’70 feeling.
