Gert De Meester, also known as user Doorchaser, the bass-player of The Seven Laws of Woo, and knob twiddler of Distant Fires Burning, lives in Mechelen, Belgium. It all started with a Commodore 64. Gert (born May 17, 1977) was taking care of the C64 for a friend who needed a place to put it while renovating his house. Gert soon discovered he could use the C64 to create electronic music. Though mostly experimental, at age sixteen he had created much of his own music, and was greatly influenced by Future Sound Of London's Lifeforms album.
