Bio

Back in the 1980s I bought my first transistor organ and started a recording project with my brother. We used everything we could get our hands on, like eighttrack tapes for drums and vacuumcleaners for noise. Slowly we bought more stuff and started writing more music-like sound.

In the ninetees we started collaborating with other people and put the band on stage. From then on I was part of multiple bands.

I loved recording and producing more than actually playing live, however, and in 2014 I quit all bands to record my first solo album Transit (https://project2014.bandcamp.com/releases).

My strength is to change and enhance existing ideas through arrangement and production, so I would love to participate in Kompoz collaborations.

More about me and my project (in Dutch) can be found on https://vanmelzen.com

Regards,

Raymond

A very good song I am honored to be a part of!

The first collaboration I made on Kompoz and it really got some of the finest members of this site! I'm really proud of this one.

Well, this one was fun to do! With the driving guitar of LilJoe6String, the magnificent bass of JeanRecovered and the perfect drums of OndjPayn. A tribute to Glenn Murdock.

This was a very nice collaboration with very nice people. It might also be the longest track available on Kompoz and certainly the only one sang in the Okotan language.

I loved adding B3 and mixing this track. It's so catchy that I won't be able to get it out of my head for months...

My first collaboration
Select
I fell for this song right away, because it somehow reminds me of Daevid Allen, Gong and other Canterbury scene related music.
