aux raus cd

Aux Raus is a band from Amsterdam. They mix electronics and guitar and an energetic crazy performance into a naive and original sound. “Grunge-Rave”…
Their new album “All Creeping Things Stopped Creeping” is out now with my hot doom .com on the cover.
You can listen to the album here.

Below is a video I made for them a few years ago. It’s the only music video I’ve done (so far):

Today many of my websites will be broadcasted for 24 hours on Art TV station Ikono. Their motto is “Television becomes beautiful”. Artworks are shown without any extra information, just the titles and the works themselves. It is an exhibition space in the form of a TV channel. You can see Ikono in these channels: ARABSAT (22 Arab countries), Etisalat channel 484 (UAE) & du channel 410 (Dubai).

How do you want to be remembered? :)

Sarah Curtis asks: How do you want to be remembered? :)

Hi Sarah, thank you for your question.

As hard as it is, I try not to think about what others think of me. I’ve been called an asshole many many times and I never liked it. I don’t think it’s very productive for me to worry about what others think of me, so I try not to. But I do worry, I do think about how I’m perceived. Am I fun to be around? Is my work interesting? Do I look OK?

However, I can honestly tell you,

I do not care at all how I’m remembered after I die.

I will not be there, it won’t affect me.

what do you consider the right size and resolution to view your digital work?

Just Quist asks: What do you consider the right size and resolution to view your digital work?

Hello Just, thank you for your question.

Some people are sensitive to words, others to music.
Some people like small screens, some people like museum scale projections.

There is no right size for my work. The point of making websites is to create flexible entities that adapt to very different contexts. Different screens, different sizes, different aspect ratios, different social climates. My websites are scalable, they are resolution independent and the compositions adapt themselves to any screen. There is no control. Ideally the works are everywhere, for anyone, at any time.
