I'm a producer/multi-instrumentalist/composer and live on the small island Texel in the Netherlands. I was born in Sao Paulo - Brasil, as oldest son of Dutch-Indonesian parents, who went back to the Netherlands when I was only three years old.
My main instrument is guitar, but I also play keyboards, drums, bass, percussion, e-bow, balaphon and use the computer with samples. I have my own label "Luny Music" and released 8 cd's (2 double-cd's), about 20 cdr's and soon release the new double-cd of The Universal Free Form Quartet.

RIP BUNNY, THANK YOU FOR A LIFE OF GREAT MUSIC

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN...

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
