Biography of Brainvoyager: artist & radio host
The Name Brainvoyager
Welcome to Electronic Music of Brainvoyager! It is great to see you stopping by. This website officially went online on 24 September 2013. First, let me introduce myself briefly in this biography of Brainvoyager.
My real name is Jos Verboven, but artistically I go by Brainvoyager. I’m a Dutch creator of cosmic and ambient electronic music and I live in The Netherlands. Spelled as ‘Brain Voyager’, this name appeared in 1985 as album title of the 7th album of Robert Schroeder, a German electronic musician. This name covers exactly what Brainvoyager’s music stands for: a voyage within the listener’s brain, thus turning him or her into a real brainvoyager. My music is best described as a mixture of contemporary rhythms and hypnotic electronic ambiences, inspired by the model of retro Berlin School.
You are kindly invited to discover how great these voyages can be. For listening to my tracks you may check the galleries under ‘Galleries’ in the main menu. You have the choice to listen to and watch the tracks on YouTube or, if you prefer a better sound quality, you can listen to the tracks on Soundcloud.
Electronic music has been a big musical passion for me for almost 35 years now, however, the first 33 years were spent as a listener. My biggest influences come from Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Robert Schroeder & Steve Roach, but I like trance music as well, and I’m not unfamiliar with the music of the likes of Armin van Buuren either. I have put some links to their official websites under ‘Links/Other Artists’ in the main menu so that you can check their websites.
