post-retro indie-pop (PRIP)

I like making music because it is such a versatile hobby; writing, composing, playing, recording. It forces me to try to become better in a lot of fields; I would love to be able to play better guitar (and keyboard) so Iโ€™m still practicing. It also encourages me to read literature and poetry, and to closely listen to other music. And it opens the possibility to meet lovely new people like you (yes you!).

All my stuff:

new website:


if you like me to write music to you lyrics just let me know.

    Thanks for your comments on Picasso and Vermeer and Orion's Belt.
    Thanks for introducing me to Piet Mondrian. I was unfamiliar with him
    until now.

    Hi Rob! I'm SO sorry that I didn't find the time yet to thank you for your friendly comments which I liked a lot! Unfortunately I was ill and very busy afterwards.
    Thank you expecially for having the patience to listen to my "micro album" as a whole, You are right: My "Starman" was way too short, but the shortness was my way of criticizing that event and all this useless waste of money. You have to see it as a sort of "musical fart"!
    Thanks for listening anyway! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @klaus  Mar 14

    Thank you Rob for commenting Pink Turns to Red. Hope it didn't frighten you too much. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @marvsmooth  Mar 6

    Thank you for the kind words about โ€œTape Two Song 1โ€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    โ€œEtherealโ€ was wrongly titled, especially after I added that rhythm!

  • @wacha  Mar 5

  • @w1n  Feb 24

    Received the lyrics for the challenge, I'll get at it as soon as I get the music

  • @lenigmusx1  Feb 23

    Thank you for the comments on "The way you are". You must have gotten bumped out of my watchlist. Not sure how or why that happens but I have some listening to do.

  • @zecoop  Feb 23

    Appareciate all the listens... According to Jay, he might as well have been saying Can't you see the whale, because he just rolls with the lyrics that come to his mind and they don't mean anything, lol. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @theresaj  Feb 22

    Thanks for the well wishes Rob! I enjoyed your xmas album. I wrote a Seussian poem expressing a similar sentiment: Hope you have a happy Fawm 2018!

  • @ferry0123 Jan 31

    Misschien een nummer in 13/8 proberen te maken, is een maat die goed swingt. Verder veel Trial&error totdat iets leuks blijkt te ontstaan, ik vind het altijd mooi geluk een rol te laten spelenโ˜บ
