about

A limited album (only 500 copies) recorded at home in the high north of the Netherlands. OSTARA arised from a unique cooperation with minco eggersman who had an important role in the realisation of it.

Some reviews on OSTARA:

CALEIDOSCOOP:
'Dreamy ambient songs that moves the senses. A masterly jewel to cherish deeply'

MOUSIQUE:
'Ostara is quiet, almost aesthetic. All in all an excellent album'

VOLKSKRANT:
'Spectaculair ambient release as the songs aren't the meandering rivers running through cold soundscapes but perfectly laid-down songs of two to three minutes' (**** )

A CLOSER LISTEN:
'The songs develop swiftly by design, displaying their careful construction. Ostara exudes an early morning peace, a gentle awakening of eyes and earth'

WRITTEN IN MUSIC:
'I would swear this is a ECM release.. music to escape real life for a moment'
