I already made my first contact with electronic music in the late 70‘s. The more I listened to these fascinating sounds, the more I was convinced that this was the kind of music I would like to make myself. I bought my very first synthesizer in 1979. It was the monophonic casio vl-tone vl-1. One of those truly bizare products in musical history. My first real synth was a Roland U-220 module. I bought it in 1999 and started to self-educate keyboard-playing. During the years, I collected more and more equipment to set up my own studio. In 2004 I finally started to embrace the electronic ‘soundworld’ I had always dreamt of: project 'embrase' was born on the 9th of october 2004. Music with a strong emphasis on emotion and composition. Music that combines complex rich atmospheric soundpads, subtle rhythms, sparkling sequences and fresh melodies. 

have fun, enjoy listening and stay passionate!
