Bram Bos’ Ruismaker Drum Machine

This morning, I woke up to a post on the iPad Musician Facebook page, from Bram Bos. He was giving away some promo codes for his drum machine app, Ruismaker. As cool as that was, it was his name alone that caught my attention. I asked him if this was the same Bram Bos from…


I Am a Noisey Person!

Rob Jackson’s Moodscaper: Is It an App? Is It an Album? Is It Both?
