Long story short
Judging by Maarten Rischen’s portfolio it seems he has been on a personal crusade against the Dutch neo-calvinistic attitude, by profiling himself in an ever-expanding multitude of shapes and forms in the musical and artistic field.
But it's a profound curiosity in - and untamable drive to explore – all possible means of genuine expression a man can have in his short life, that made him frantically bounce around from one instrument to the other, from smelly punk rock stages to the grandeur of the modern dance theatre, and everything in between.

In the far, far east of Holland (which is actually really close to the far, far west) Maarten, along with some fellow minded musicians, created the ideal place for all kinds of music production. Not confined to the traditional studio set-up of a control room and recording booth with thick layers of glass in between, it’s more of an open playground with all kinds of instruments readily set up for recording. Thus, when inspiration hits, there is no need for endless tweaking. Next to the options for analogue and digital recording of ‘real’ instruments, the studio is equipped with all the softsynths and MIDI options required for any imaginable contemporary production.
