Brainvoyager
 

INTRODUCTION

My real name is Jos Verboven, but artistically I go by Brainvoyager. I’m a Dutch creator of cosmic and ambient electronic music and I live in The Netherlands. Spelled as ‘Brain Voyager’, this name appeared in 1985 as album title of the 7th album of Robert Schroeder, a German electronic musician. This name covers exactly what Brainvoyager’s music stands for: a voyage within the listener’s brain, thus turning him or her into a real brainvoyager. My music is best described as a mixture of contemporary rhythms and hypnotic electronic ambiences, inspired by the model of retro Berlin School.

I run my own website Electronic Music of Brainvoyager.

You are kindly invited to visit my website and to discover how great these voyages can be. For listening to my tracks you may check the galleries under ‘Galleries’ in the main menu. You have the choice to listen to and watch the tracks on YouTube or, if you prefer a better sound quality, you can can listen to the tracks on Soundcloud.

INFLUENCES

Electronic music has been a big musical passion for me for almost 35 years now, however, the first 33 years were spent as a listener. My biggest influences come from Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Robert Schroeder & Steve Roach, but I like trance music as well, and I’m not unfamiliar with the music of the likes of Armin van Buuren either. I have put some links to their official websites under ‘Links/Other Artists’ in the main menu so that you can check their websites.

SOME KIND REQUESTS

You can share your thoughts under ‘News & Blog’ in the main menu; I will do the same. Feel free to comment on any post you want and as much as you want. However, the section ‘News & Blog’ is configured as a blog rather than a forum. If you would like to share something about electronic music that you would like to see in a dedicated thread rather than adding your contribution to an existing posting, just send me a ticket and I will create the thread for you. Tickets can be sent using the contact form under ‘Contact’ in the main menu.
