Electronics

Music

& More

 
 

Electronics is one of my main interests and because of that I have created a lot of projects that involve electronics and somtimes also software. Because now a days most things can be done easily with microcontrollers and they need software before they can do anything. Luckely I am a software developer for my profession so that is no problem.

Latest project added to the site.

Dec 2009/Jan 2010

building my own x0xb0x

During the christmas holidays I began with the assembly of my own x0xb0x, a Roland TB-303 rebuild, which is a bassline synthesizer (search for it on google or youtube)
After months of looking at this project I finaly found a way of getting all the parts easily, so that I could start building it right away.
That said it still was a huge project which took me a couple of weeks to get finished and working as it should be.
I still have to make a full report about this project so this is it for now.

Another big interest of me is music.
Back in '92 I discovered the House music scene and ever since this has kept my interest. I have been through a lot of genres falling under the term House, ranging from club, mellow, trance, hardtrance, hardcore, techno, tribal, tech house, progressive and what more they all might be called.
I sometimes find it difficult to explain exactly what it is about this music, but what I have noticed through the years is that you have to have a certain feeling for this music, just as with classical music you love it or you hate it.

At a later stage I started buying records because there was almost no other way of listerning to this music, except for waiting for compilation/mix CD's. When the collection grew I attempted to mix them together my self.
Now I try to put up a new mix for each month.

Now a days I listen a lot to FriskyRadio and the show Transitions by John Digweed on Kiss100

 
 
 

Of course there are also things that can not be put under the other two categories. They come here.
