They managed to release three cassettes (Iets Anders Graag, Words From The Front and Secrets of a 3rd Dimension) and two short films (the Film and What is a chick without lipstick?). After they gradually lost interest, he embarked on a new adventure called Boy In Trouble, which was a collaborative project, open to ideas and work with other artists. Boy In Trouble released 2 CD's in the 90's (b.i.t. and Atmospherics) and they had some kind of reunion for a one off gig on December 23rd, 2005.
This gig was broadcasted live on the Internet and has been released as Atmospherics Live 2005. His production rig grew along with his knowlegde and technique (hopefully...), as working with Mr. DeVo! and other musicians had brought new light to ideas and methods to record and produce in various ways in order to make the equipment work for him instead him working for the equipment (makes any sense?). After a short sidestep in the Notorious Twins project (The Birth of a new Dawn, Eject and The End of an Era), an acid-based project - which isn't exactly his ballgame. He started writing, producing and remixing for others (radio & TV commercials, dance mixes, etc.). After a few years the urge (or itch...) to record his own music again got stronger and stronger and thus Leaves of Grass was released.
In the end not quite happy with the music and production, but it helped him exploring new directions in his music and methods. During spring 2005 he set aside a few months to write and record the album Songs of Parting. The compositions were crafted from improvisational sessions in his homestudio. While recording for the Songs of Parting album, he discussed about the songs with Dr. Awesome, which resulted in the birth of 7 Bandits. Now his time is being devided between his solo work, 7 Bandits and other projects. Early 2005 Ekim and Mr.
DeVo! and Zero V founded ON-Mix Media, an entirely digital label. A label for artists by artists! Early 2006 he published a book called; Ideas as Opiates. A collection of his lyrics and poems, which he has written over the years. Read more on Last.fm.
