Driek's Space

Welcome to my oldskool website, nose around.


People who've met me in real life know that I sing. Almost all the time! Naturally I don't just do that on my own, but I also make music in two groups. Three MDB is my new group which i'm very excited about: five highly talented and creative singers that not only are fantastic singers but also songwriters and arrangers. We perform a mixture of covers and original material.
I'm also one of the fifteen voices that make up The Amsterdam Vocals.
Some of my arrangements are available for download as sheet music under Creative Commons license.

In February 2010, I made my opera debut in the opera Adam, in Amsterdam's smallest opera house: naastcarre. A video of this opera can be found here: Naast Carre/video.


In the 1930's, David Lennox Booth photographed English steam trains. A selection of his photos as a small hommage to this gentle man.

I like to photograph myself as well. New work mostly on flickr.


blog - occasional rants, rambles and observations.

Three personal pages on myself: About me, spiritually: on Osho, a warning on the Miracle of Love, about my former name; work, dayjob and freelance; and trains, where I muse on my fondness for everything on rails.

The joys of the craft : on the art & joy of programming [from Fred Brooks' classic The Mythical Man-Month].



An old page of rail links links, loosely sorted by region. I'll move these to delicious or magnolia once I can import them properly.
