various noise boxes (pedals). His instrumental pieces are collages, compositions
and improvisations based on electrical noise.
Van Uden sees his music as pure punk. It embodies the anarchy in Free Jazz, Modern Composition and Post-Velvet-Rock. Although he is inspired by Coltrane and Cage, his ambition in making music comes from Punk-Rock.
His carreer started as guitarist in the Chili-Peppers-inspired Mozzarella Overdose. Unsatisfied with this job he formed Drag Queen in 1991. Till their break-up in 1995 Drag Queen terrorized their area with No Wave and Noise-Punk.
Today van Uden almost works as a solo artist. He is doing homerecordings and performs whenever he can solo and with 'Tröster' Clemens Drissen as Tinnitussies, a multi media project, that also involves visual aspects.
