At the age of eighteen he received his first "Hammond organ", the legendary B-3. He then learned to master a technique that few others were able to control. He became "The King" of Hammond and played the bass pedal at amazing speed. Yvan created his own sound, a mix of classical and jazz.

Later, he participated in "Vara's performance". 1976 became the year of the commercial breakthrough with Yvan's hit Winter Memories, followed by Romantica, Prelude de la mer, L'inconnu, Long time ago, Jet fly me to Japan. His performance at Jazz Bilzen in 1977 earned him a weekly radio program at the national radio station. He played the music of the day in his own interpretation.
