Profile Information

Tell us about yourself!
My name is Eelke van Hoof.I'm an ambient artist (a.k.a. Apollonius/Human Metronome). My main interests go out to human evolution and consciousness on a rapidly evolving planet. I started making ambient music in 2005 with my soulmate Wasili Papadopoulos and have issued several albums since 2009. Our music can be described as a mix of organic, tribal, minimal and dark ambient likened to the works of Robert Rich, Oöphoi, Steve Roach and a hint of Lustmord. Sound sources are taken from softt synths, to singing bowls, guitars and field recordings. Our music has a strong reference to the organic world and the mysteries of ancient cultures. If one is open to it, it has the ability impact one's consciousness quite profoundly.

Together with 33 Tetragammon I did a gig on the E-Day 2009 festival in Oirshot, The Netherlands, which was also the c.d. presentation of our debut album 'Resonating Earth'. In february 2010 two songs from their debut album were aired on the Hearts of Space radio program called 'Sacred Singing Metals' (PGM 902) and in october 2010 their follow-up 'Spectral Solitude' was broadcast on 'Apparitions' (PGM 928). Our music has been aired on various other radio shows (e.g. Strar's End, Ultima Thule, Galactic Travels, Ambient Aether Space Continuum).

New old album by 33 Tetragammon & Human Metronome: Live at E-Day 2009. Free!

Posted on February 1, 2015 at 3:30pm 2 Comments

Finally it's finished: after almost six years it's finally released. A couple months after Wasili and I released our first album 'Resonating Earth' we had a gig at the E-day festival organized by the Groove label which is run by Ron Boots. We weren't playing on the big stage (which was reserved for the EM 'stars') but in a somewhat in-between place above a noisy cafe. No ideal circumstances but great to practice and learn to deal with all the things that can and always will go…


What's up in The Netherlands?

Since Wasili (33 Tetragammon) and I have a relatively new website with a blogpost every few months, I decided to post my latest here to keep you guys (and a gal every now and then) up to date. Here it is:

Both Wasili and I have been working on several projects. The mixing part of the sea-and-landscape album I’m doing with Dronnie Darko is almost finished. I’m really taking my time for this because I want it to exactly sound like I envisioned. It’s such an exciting project with…

It's been a years since my latest release and this year I have teamed up again with my trusted partner in 'ambient music crime', 33 Tetragammon. It has been quite the year: we've each had our personal challenges and at one point we ended up with both of us…


'Philosophical' review Birth of the Real Self by Piedpaper

Posted on November 25, 2013 at 12:00pm 1 Comment

This review is one of the most entertaining I've ever read. It's not about 'immersive soundscapes' or any of those descriptions but about what the listener (Ukranian Tim Six from review site Piedpaper) feels inside. Not only that, he elaborates on various topics which on the surface don't have anything to do with ambient music but to me it has everything to do with it. Here it is:

ha ha.. not all of us are 'gun nuts', though..  I'm afraid Americans are just as susceptible to stereotypes as everybody else.. apparently we're all 'rednecks from Texas, we're all loud and rude, and we all got more money than God'... hee hee.. (if only that last part were true!)

Thanks for the kind comments re the poetry :-)
