In the year
1990 I graduated high school and
shortly after that Filip van Breda and I started
to make music as GRADUAL ISOLATION
In the very beginning we had nothing more than
a DX21synth, a TR505 drum machine, a TB303
programmable bassline and a homebuilt mixer.
I should describe the music we made those
days as cold wave or post new-wave, but
honestly, we never knew how to call it ourselves.
