two dedicated tracks:
05 Until we meet again (for Anton)
Anton was the father of my ex-wife, therefore my ex-father-in-law and
the grandfather of my son. He passed away on December 18, 2022 after a
long period of suffering. Many beautiful memories will remain, and he’s
in my heart forever, with love.
06: The final dawn (for Hans Moret)
Hans Moret was the host of a Dutch radio show playing electronic music.
Through the years we became more and more friendly and close with
eachother. During the last period of his life, Hans suffered from
pancreatic cancer. After he told me there was no hope anymore and he
would spend his remaining time in a hospice, I composed this track for
him in different versions and let him decide which version of it would
be on this album. Eighteen days later, on April 12 2022, Hans passed
away. The music was played at his funeral.
