What’s with the ‘concept’?


When is a song really finished? If only I would know… All the B2FAB songs on SoundCloud are in a way works in progress, now and then I go back to a song to tweak it or fix a small glitch in the mix. Now and then for me a song is really missing some essential, but still I feel the need to let people hear the finished part of the song. In that case it will get a title marked as concept. If you hear a concept song and you think you can “make it work” in some way, […]

The singing stars of B2FAB

This is dedicated to all the singers that helped me create the songs that you can listen to on Soundcloud, YouTube and Vimeo. One by one with a small story to introduce these voices that help me to tell a story. Right from the start I knew that my music needed to tell a story and that I wanted vocals to express this. That is where my musical capabilities are limited and I needed some help. I started making music on the piano. Then developed as a keyboard player, playing in various band. Always, when recording in the studio, it […]

I was looking for a way to make a song about the loss of my little 8 year old cousin. She died from cancer and fought and lost a hard battle. Should it have been a children’s song or a ballad?

I hope you enjoy the song, but at the same time get touched by the same emotions I felt when writing it. This song is open for remixing or for […]

A day in the studio


How to write a song? How long does it take to write a song? For me these questions are impossible to answer. A song for me starts with an idea, funny, sad, or anything in between.

A solid start is always the story I want to tell and toying around with my old faithful Korg Triton workstation, that has traveled thousands of miles, from gig to gig. Now it’s resting peacefully in the center of the studio awaiting new inspiration. Ableton Live immediately records all initial ideas. Any […]

The making of the Stone video

From the start it was quite clear that the Stone video should somehow involve cuddling a statue. Searching the Internet for spare statues resulted in a few options, mostly plastic ones. Did you know you can rent statues? It is expensive though and quite difficult, this was therefore the least favorable option. The next option was visiting a place where they have statues standing around. A visit to a museum might trip some guards or alarms and result in less favorable press attention. A quick scan of statues in the vicinity resulted in either too big or too small ones. […]

Lets get started

B2FAB is a solo project of The Wim, straight from a small studio in the attic. From electropop to a lonely piano and some violins. Music is a way to express yourself and this music conveys very personal thoughts. Expect guest appearances of various musicians. The Wim was a songwriter and keyboard player in Iceparty and various projects after that. After the final gig of Iceparty, The Wim decided to take all ideas and stray studio recordings one step up to turn them into complete tracks. Every track has a personal story attached. You can find the most actual news […]
