Welcome to my website and webshop with more than 70 compositions
and arrangements available for percussion ensemble, chamber music for winds, 
marching percussion and solo repertoire.


It has been quiet on my website and socials
for some while now but this spring exciting news
will come Your way. 


On october 7 2023 a recording session took place
together with the highly skilled
percussion ensembles of K.O.H. Eijsden
under the baton of Henrico Stevens,
Gertrudis St. Geertruid directed by Roel Meessen 
and my own ensemble Concordia Obbicht.
6 concert pieces were recorded.
Including 4 brand new compositions!
It will summarize my style and variety
of music for percussion ensemble so far,
with special attention for a 'space-triptych'.
The mixing and mastering is complete and right now
i am preparing the new compositions and the première of
the album called EXTRA TERRA which will be 
available on various online music platforms, this website
and a as a limited edition on CD.
So be tuned this spring!
