Look at this. In one month we crafted a new website and 2 (!) new compilation albums. The recordings of the first track 'Frederic Chopin Nocturnes, Op.9 No.2' started back in June 2013. It was then when I met Feau, an electronic music producer & audio engineer and we decided to create a compilation of classical piano songs. After the succes of the first track (that reached over 22k views today!) we recorded Bach, Rachmaninoff, Beethoven, and a self-written sonata as well. Today the last track (Praeludium Nr2 - Bach) was mixed and mastered. Special thanks to Bram Juist, who did the artwork. I'm planning to do 2 more classical compilations. One of them will only have self-written sonata's.
Over the years people had some struggles finding me here on NG. So (thanks to wadefulp) I made it for you a little easier by changing my NG username to 'newhansen'. In addition, I've worked on a new website 'www.new-hansen.com' to make one platform for all my music and social media. People can download, listen or buy music. It also feautures blogpost and bonustracks (and we'll be working on a webshop and musicsheetpage). Come by and say hi :) Finally 'The Basement Sessions' have been released and can be downloaded for free on NG. Thanks to all people who worked on this (here on NG special thanks to Zutfill and of course camoshark). Soon, The Piano Sessions will be released, as I'm waiting for the last new songs to be mixed. Hopefully it'll be done by the end of this month.
In this 3rd month of this season I bring you another 3 songs.
After some years I continued to write some more songs for the pm-series. 4pm can be found right here (free sheets included).
How High the Moon, (originally planned for an early October release) has been released today. Everything there is to say, can be read in the song description. Also, pictures of the project can be found in the link attached to the song. Pictures of both recent as old projects can be found inside the link. Camoshark did a awesome job recording and arranging all the brass. Visit his user page to check out his stuff!
The Basement Sessions missed the Halloween contest-deadline.

So this month I released a newer version of Marywith nylon strings and some violins. I'd love to hear some feedback about this one, in comparison with the Mary I did for the AIM. Btw click here for sheets and tabs.
A cover of Elliott Smith's Waltz #2 can be found right here (today he passed away 10 years ago). Two other songs from september will soon be released. I try to keep up with my 3-songs-a-month-thing, but sometimes mixing takes a bit longer.
In addition i've came up with the idea to post all my sheet music on this website. So for all you musicians out there… ;)
Aaand work is in progress after a nice holiday. I love Canada, and it was really nice to meet people all over the world (and drink slurpees all summer long).
I made a sneakpeak on the song I was working on. It's called 'How High the Moon' and can be found right here .Lots are asking when new songs will be released. We are working with a 10 man team on this one, which will be released by the end of september. In addition there will be a classical recording coming of Beethovens Moonshine Sonata in the same month. Mary is Missing will get a whole new sound as well. So, stay around for some new and awesome songs.
I'm on a roll! I spend at least 8 hours a day in my new studio. Next 4 weeks i'll be on a trip to Vancouver BC, Seattle WA, and Portland OR. When i'm back i'll be recording full time ^^.
In the meantime you should check out the 2 song i've posted last week.
I played some chopin, which can be found here.
Sheets can be found on the internet for free. Just search for Nocturne Op.9 No.2 sheet or something like that.
Have a great summer! :D
As you can see, it's done now. Within 2 months, me and my dad finished a small mix studio in Amsterdam. It's my best workplace ever. I swear i will be working here over 8 hours a day :D
Today we tested the KRK VXT8 speakers. Damn, this place can take some real noise! And that's a good thing, cause the studio is build in the middle of a living-area.
For those who are interested, on my soundcloud are some additional songs i've written for Martin Larsson's SOUL MATES.
Friday I will be recording Chopin's Noctune nr. 9 because someone on the audio forum asked for it.
Last 3 months we've been crafting this mixstudio in Amsterdam. We'll be finishing the project in early June. Its a box in a box, so there's really no sound from the outside at all. NOT ANY SOUND AT ALL.
Yesterday we finished the new song for Martin Larsson's new serie 'Soulmates'.
The song was recorded in Amsterdam, though the trumpet was recorded by Camoshark in Canada ^^
Drums: Jorn Juist
Drum engineer: Bram Juist
Guitars&Base: Sander Tijburg
Brass engineer: Camoshark
Félix Rheault on the trumpet
Vocal engineer: Paul Nieuwenhuijsen
Lyrics: Martin himself =)
We are working on a theme song for Martin Larsson's new series, airing on NG soon. Camoshark did the trumpet recording in Canada-land :). Today we recorded the drums, guitars and base in AbbeyRoad (in MuziQ-Amsterdam :D). Everything went really smooth, and we ended up with several sweet takes, done in 3 hours. By the end of march (week 12) the song will be done. For now, we will continue mixing and mastering everything together.
