I'm Marnix from Holland, living in Zwolle (that's near to you GeeJee, are you going to the conservatorium in Zwolle by any chance?). I studied art and photography and graduated from the art academy in Utrecht in 1995. Been working in photography and publishing till this day. But..synthesizer based music is my first love. It goes back to the first time I heard oxygene as a 7 year old: very new and very exciting. Years later I realized I was really a fan by wanting all his records, and, ultimately, go to his concerts. Jarre also inspired me to want synthesizers of my own, because of the imaginative powers he could extract from them. He was very good at that. Also given the fact that even on this site there is still debate on what equipment he used to do the things he did/does. Anyway, I was inspired, and I bought synths and made music. And I'm glad that this forum is what it is; a relaxed place to meet synth and /or jarre fans.
And if you made that happen Geejee, thank you very much:-)
