There is a tendency to think of percussion as crash, bang, wallop, but the equipment of Verweijen gave lie to this, producing rhythms often gentle but certainly hypnotic - the rustle of trees, bird cries, the lap of water, or was it simply my imagination.
Peter Steptoe, Croydon Today.
The infinite range and depth of music will never cease to amaze me. Sincere music has the power to touch people regardless of their culture, race, gender, religion or social status and to bring about true communication.
My approach towards making music has always been fueled by this vision. Throughout the years I’ve always believed that playing percussion will have a positive impact on the world. To use the words of Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart:
Good rhythm is what
this world needs a lot of now,
because good rhythm is the antidote for hate.
This is the website of Job Verweijen, but is it really about me? What hopefully
matters is the story I am telling, the energy I am giving and the message I
am sending through my playing.
