Vandroogenbroeck's recorded legacy begins in the early 60s with the Eje Thelins Quintet, where he played jazz piano. In the early 70s, the music of Tangerine Dream inspired him to move into electronic psychedelic rock. Brainticket remained active into the early 80s, and Vandroogenbroeck also recorded as a solo artist and as a guest with groups in both rock and jazz.
Brainticket was resurrected in 2000 as a more or less solo project, and continued making new music until 2015's Past, Present and Future.
