My main passion is writing music and playing guitars.

I write original music under my own name or do covers or mashups and post them on my YouTube channel and on music services (for larger projects), or on my Instagram, and here on the blog, for short clips.

Other musical activities

In the late 90ies, I had a prog-rock band, Gray Eclipse. Songs from that time are on SoundCloud.

I sometimes write and record with my former Gray Eclipse bandmate under the name Six Thousand Miles.
