      In 1982 his first solo album, the instrumental Orphical Positions was released; it was critically acclaimed and given a great deal of airplay around Europe for many years, and in the United States also. In reviews, it was often compared to the music of Mike Oldfield, but also names like Alan Stivell, Jethro Tull or Flairck were mentioned. It was a synthesis of Western and Eastern music, folk music and rock music. Because of its similarities to New Age music, the album in retrospect can be considered one of the first Dutch New Age music productions. Since 2007 it is available again, this time as a CD, at the Dutch Music Archives of Fonos. (Het Nederlands Muziekarchief van Fonos) The music of Orphical Positions was used in a film and for a ballet performance, and a number of tracks on the album have been used in television commercials and several documentaries.
