Wally Dijksman aka William Sveris was born in 1962 in Rotterdam, Holland. His work mainly focuses on the electric guitar and all his expressional, tonal and harmonical possibilities. As an Autodidact, all his work has an unique personal touch. A new kind of language, so to speak. He has no spiritual or theoretical boundaries towards what can and (so called) can’t be played in music and arts in general. The use of different kinds of tools (metal pieces, lighters, drumsticks) to torment his instrument and to add different dimensions to his sound gives him a special place in the world of the avant-garde guitarists.
He’s mostly known for his work with the longstanding Distract Vibes project in wich he works together, in mostly duo format, with Rotterdam based bassplayer Mo (aka Moniek de Boer). For upcoming year some solo audio work is planned to be released. More news on this front soon. Solo performances are already happening. Check out the list below for more info.
