Welcome on my website! I play alto, soprano & baritone saxophones. I also started using the EWI (Akai) in Koen Lieckens' Hit Machine and The Chris Mentens Quartet. I like composing and arranging what people - I think - call 'jazz music'. I like form, rhythm, harmony & melody, and keep on developing my ways to handle them. And I'm very lucky to know some very fine musicians who want to perform what I write.
This site is meant to get you acquainted with my musical projects: t-unit5, ROTOMEK, Saxkartel (new edition), Tom Van Dyck/Pierre Anckaert duo & 4-tet, t-unit4, my duo with Ewout Pierreux, t-unit7, Saxkartel, and who knows what more in the future.
Listen to mp3's, read what press has written about my cd's (mostly in dutch, some in french), if you like what you hear, and want to support me, buy a cd in my cd-shop.
There's also a spot with stuff (exercises, transcriptions, lesson logs) I put there for my students. I call it 4 musicians only. Have a peek, grab what you like and let me know if it's been useful to you ...
