Biography of Brainvoyager
Artist & radio host
Welcome to Electronic Music of Brainvoyager!
It is great to see you stopping by. This website officially went online on 24 September 2013. First of all, let me briefly introduce myself 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 the German electronic musician Robert Schroeder. This name covers exactly what Brainvoyager’s music stands for. It is music that tries to invoke voyages within the listener’s brain, thus turning him or her into a real brain voyager.
Hence, 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 can listen to and watch my tracks on YouTube while listening on SoundCloud provides a better sound quality.
Electronic music has been a big musical passion for me for more than 40 years. However, the first 38 years were spent as a listener. My biggest influences come from Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Robert Schroeder & Steve Roach. Finally, I like trance music as well. So, I’m not unfamiliar with the music of the likes of Armin van Buuren either. In addition, I have put some links to their official websites under ‘Links/Other Artists’ in the main menu so that you can check their websites. As a result, my music is best described as a mixture of contemporary rhythms and hypnotic electronic ambiences, inspired by the model of retro Berlin School.
The Music Store
If you like my productions, you could consider to support me by purchasing my music. Maybe you would like to look around in this website’s store? If so, click ‘Music Store’ in the main menu. Or just click here. But maybe you prefer buying the music from Bandcamp? If so, then click here.
Enjoy & share!
It would be great seeing Electronic Music of Brainvoyager become an interactive meeting place for electronic music enthusiasts. Therefore, this website doesn’t want to limit itself to a certain style or genre. Both the sections ‘News & Blog’ and ‘Reviews’ should be helpful to achieve this goal since there are lots of things to discover there.
So, if you like what you see and what you hear, I would hugely appreciate it if you could put a link to this website on your own website and/or share this website on your social media. You can add me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter as well. Bookmarking this website is also a very good idea.

Radio show “Electronic Fusion”
Radio station “West Star Radio” from the UK
In August 2015 the UK based radio station West Star Radio asked me if I would like to do a weekly radio show. I said “Yes” and we agreed upon me doing a weekly radio show dedicated solely to electronic music of various styles. That’s how radio show “Electronic Fusion” of Brainvoyager was born. The very first episode was broadcast on 18 September 2015.
I decided to leave West Star Radio in the midst of August 2020 due to their ongoing technical issues at that time. At the moment of my leaving these issues were still unresolved and they had resulted in a lengthy downtime of radio show “Electronic Fusion” of three months. The station did not seem very active in resolving its issues, as they kept me completely ignorant during the months of the show’s downtime. That’s why I felt it was eventually inevitable for me to leave West Star Radio.
