Profile Information

About me:
Multi-instrumentalist from the Netherlands. My first steps into the world of music were my father's classical records and recorder lessons (some sort of fipple-flute). Later on, as a teen, I widened my musical world with rock, grunge and metal. Bands like Soundgarden and other riff-based bands made me conscious of the power of simple melodies played over repeated rhythmical patterns and their use of "unusual" scales mesmerised me. Later on a friend of mine brought me in contact with folk and traditional music, which seemed a natural development to me.

My aim is to make music that stands in a long tradition, influenced by the almost forgotten music and nature of northwestern Europe.

When composing, I usually try to catch the spirit of the old folktales of my home region, the southeastern parts of the Netherlands, where until the beginning of the 20st century, stories were told about dwarfs and other odd people living on the edge of society - literally, in their heather-sod homes.
As a band we are:
D.B.Lolaq (aka Peter Janssen, but what's in a name?)
Instruments:
assorted flutes & whistles, fretless mandolin, guitar, bull-roarer, percussion, digital effects.
Influences:
Hedningarna, Garmarna, pre-medieval music, Vladiswar Nadishana (hearing him play brought me to playing the overtone flute), Sedayne, Betula Pendula, even a little bit of heavy metal (Soundgarden, Sepultura), Miles Davis (especially his modal period).

And for the non-musical things that inspire me: Nature - even in a crowded country like the Netherlands you can always stumble across a wild boar or deer (if you know where to look for them)- people (I always wonder why people act and react the way they do), philosophy; medieval philosophy in particular.
