Global Fusion & Prog
Music showreel 2020
'The Reverie Suite' (Americana meets prog), an album where I had the privilege to play piano/organ on, has been receiving positive reviews and articles from magazines such as DPRP (9/10) in The Netherlands , Background Magazine, Neoprog France (4.5/5), Profil Prog FM Canada (8.6/10), Fireworks UK, Prog-Sphere and more, with radioplay on Progrock.com, various Progzilla shows and FM radio stations. The project was founded by guitarvirtuoso Hoyt Binder, Saskia Binder on vocals and includes former 'Seal/Andrea Bocelli' harmonicist Tollak Ollestad and 'Redemption' drummer Chris Quirarte. Mixed by engineer Smiley Sean (Motley Crue's 'The Dirt'). Mastering by Howie Weinberg (Herbie Hancock, Van Halen).
I finished composing music for the Swedish government funded documentary 'Minnen: Ett Svunnet Hantverk', showcasing the personal life and history of the veterans of the Swedish fur-industries. The premiere was at Biograf Royal cinema 30 March with a DVD release and an upcoming Bluray.
My piece 'Momentum Figures' was used in the short documentary video, 'Asylum of Art', a 'Svenska Institutet' project, interviewing various Turkish artist women on life in Sweden. Financial supporters included Region Jönköpings Län.
"Truly a soundtrack of your Imagination! What a realistic way of presenting the power of sound!"

Review 8.6/10 - Profil Prog Canada
Review 9/10 - Dutch Progressive Rock Page
This album combines heavy progressive rock and pop vocals. While I'm on keys, Hoyt Binder (Lobate Scarp) is on guitars, Chris Quirarte (Primary/Redemption) on drums and Paulo Gustavo on bass. It features 80's MTV era vocalist Donnie Vie ('Enuff Z Nuff'). Mastering was done by Maor Appelbaum (Yngwie Malmsteen, YES) and the album got released through the label ProgRock Records.
"...the solos of Van Deurzen are exceptionally tasteful and technically high standing..."
