The music of Bas Broekhuis is known for its sequential and rhythmic content also known as "Berliner Schule" (Berlin school). In his studio Bas plays and composes mostly on synthesizer, but on stage he likes to play, along good friends, on electronic drums, acoustic percussion and Rhythmstick (Proud owner of the world’s biggest collection of Rhythmsticks). Both keys and drums were mastered by himself.
Born out of a marriage of musical and creative parents in 1963, Bas, the youngest of four children, was the only one who didn't seem to be interested in music. Through education and his membership of “The Society for Young Scientists and Inventors” (NL), Bas concentrated on techniques. However, through these techniques, Bas started to build machines that could produce sounds in an electronic way. Influenced by Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Vangelis, he began to manipulate his own generated sounds. Together with a few friends of “The Society” , Bas started his first Electronic Music Band named 'El Sueno', which is Spanish for “The Dream”. After one concert and one radio broadcast, a new formation was founded with the same guys: “The Evolution Project” was born. But even this project was finished after one concert and one television broadcast. With one of the guys, Bas founded a new formation in electronic music, 'Live Support System'. But, history kept on repeating, after one concert this 'System' came also to a hold. After this period of six years of composing, performing and experimenting with sounds and music, Bas started to make music on a solo base. The result of this was the tape ' Face Behind the Mask', released on the first electronic music festival (KLEM-day) September '88 One year later, October 21, Bas and Ron Boots performed together as 'project 2.1' and released the double-tape 'Hydrhythmix'. From that time Bas contributed tracks or parts of it on a couple of CD’s from European artists like Mario Schönwälder (D), Ron Boots (NL), John Kerr (UK), Venja (B) and many others. In 1991 the first solo CD 'The Escher Drawings' was released; an album that was inspired by the drawings of M.C. Escher. Since 1992 Bas can frequently be found on stage with his synthesizers, but mostly behind electronic drums and percussion together with Mario Schönwälder, Detlef Keller, Bernd Braun, John Kerr, Harald Grosskopf, Venja and many others. In 1995 the second solo album "The Synchronicity Of Life" was released. Beside live performances Bas is also busy with digital recordings and editing in his MIDI-and digital-audio based studio.
