Driven by their shared passion for electronic music, their love for the nerdy side of sound synthesis and the fun they had making music together, early 2012 marked the beginning of the musical cooperation of Kaj Tyszka and Michiel Steennis as Moving Thoughts. Slowly and gradually, filling a live set in order to eventually share their passion with an audience became a goal to work towards for both.
Tyszka and Steennis strongly feel that the growth of their passion and dedication to Moving Thoughts is exponentially related to the ongoing process of gaining knowledge in the field of sound-synthesis and mixing techniques, in which they are welcoming support from everyone.
When it comes to the artistic interpretation of their project, both Steennis and Tyszka share a distinctive but like-minded view on the direction Moving Thoughts should start - or maybe say continue – following. In their own words, Moving Thoughts is and will remain to be about music as a means of transmitting feelings and moving people primarily. They also both mention the sheer importance of the fun-factor of music production and friendship, which shapes the solid base their project is built upon.
In May 2014 their second EP was released on the Greek Modular Expansion Records with wonderful remixes by Dave Miller, Invite and lable heads George Apergis and Alex Retsis. in 2014 their release on the infamous Dynamic Reflection imprint was received well and their contribution to the infamous Invite’s Choice Podcast was released.
Releasing a podcast for the Reclaim Your City podcast series was preceded by a few days by their first booking outside of the Netherlands; they played at Tresor (Berlin, Germany) in July 2015, and later on at the infamous Staub party at About Blank. In 2016 Kaj and Michiel released a solo ep on the Self Reflektion label of "Stranger" and another solo ep on Dynamic reflection as well.
But the most important thing is that Kaj and Michiel finished their sound engineering education in September 2016. After a year of hard work and studying there’s finally time again for studio sessions and lots of new music.
