"I first met Ronald when he was dancing, on his own, on an empty dance floor, playing air percussion…"

Searching was self-recorded in Ronald’s living room on a 4-Track Tape Recorder in 1984.
The recordings symbolise his engagement to cross-over everything that was known to him musically at that time. Most importantly, all recordings reflect his personal way of searching; searching for his own characteristic sound. Rhythmical patterns meet well balanced distortion, shaping the music into a mirror of his character. He was part of several Dutch Latin and Jazz bands, including Cascada and Ritmo Natural. With the latter he performed at Holland’s North Sea Jazz Festival. At this point Ronald is 78 years old, playing music every day.
