Magnifying the atmosphere of beautiful little details, I integrate sophisticated sampling techniques in my compositions and live performances. I have composed music for ensembles, dance- en theatre performances, film, television and created sound installations. When performing live I use game controllers and software instruments to tweak sound in an intuitive way.

After years of playing bass guitar in different bands I became increasingly interested in electronic and electroacoustic music, sound design and sampling. I studied history at the State University Groningen and took a Sonology course at the Royal Conservatory in Den Haag. I use the cinematic and dramatic qualities of my music when working with theatre makers, choreographers, filmmakers and visual artists. I have worked with choreographers Kenzo Kusuda, Martin Butler, Roser Lopez Espinosa, Pere Gay I Faura and with the Guangdong Modern Dance Company form China. I have performed throughout Europe, in China, South Korea, the United States and Venezuela. I have worked with choreographer / visual artist Luis Lara Malvacias in Danspace/St. Marks Church, Dance Theatre Workshop and The Kitchen in New York. My work has been presented at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, and in 2011 I was a guest composer at the University of North Texas. I have composed work for the Wave Field Synthesis system from the Game Of Life, made a sound and visual composition about the history of Dutch New Guinea for the Military Pension and Museum Bronbeek Arnhem and composed music for “(T)”, a collaboration with choreographer Luis Lara Malvacias, premiered during the 5 Dutch days at Dancespace Project, St. Marks Church New York. | soundcloud |  vimeo | newsletter
