SURPRISE PERFORMANCE WITH ERIC VAN DER HEIJDEN

On April 30st, I have been joining Dutch musician of electronic music Eric van der Hijden with his performance at the Zeiss Planetarium in Bochum (Germany). Eric and I have been working on a special piece to honour Sylvia Sommerfeld (Schallwende e.V.), which we performed live at the venue. The so far unreleased piece is called “Colorful Fields of Summer”. Other musicians, who joined Eric were Ron Boots (keyboards), Frank Doritke (guitar) and Harold van der Heijden (drums). I personally had a great time performing, and the whole concert was well reveiced. More can be read at Stephan Schelle’s article at MusikZirkus-Magazin (navigate to ‘Konzerte”->”Chronologisch”.
