Gert De Meester (born may 17 1977), who is also known as the bassplayer of the world-fusion-funk combo The Seven Laws of Woo, knob twiddler of 2??, The Mental Attack and Distant Fires Burning, lives in Mechelen, Belgium. It all started with a Commodore 64. A friend asked Gert to take care of his C64 while he was renovating his house. In exchange he got the oportunity to experiment with that machine. Gert soon discovered you could use that C64 to make electronic music. For years he played with taperecorders mixed with the C64 and a cheap Bontempi keyboard.
