Watch this short impression of the permanent installation Iris and I made during our residency at Leveld Kunstnartun in Norway.
With over 25 years of experience
In creating, recording, and editing sound and electronic music, versatility has become a key-factor in my work: by never turning down an opportunity to learn new techniques, work with different media or musical practices, I'm able to successfully apply my experiences from one field onto another.
Being a creator myself helps me to better understand and work with creations by others and having recorded sound for different kinds of applications helps me in understanding how to properly mix and master it. Of course working for Dutch Public Broadcast since 1997 as both engineer and producer (and even parttime-presenter), makes working for and with media a familiar affair.
My work involves almost every step in the field of music production: from creation to restoration and on many different levels; either lo-fi-no-budget or spic 'n spec 5.1 surround. But to break it down into the most common area's, you can tab into Performances, Productions, Radio and Releases. Where possible, links are provided to more backgrounds about the project and/or the artist(s) or organization(s) involved.
Together we worked on community based installations and performances worldwide: in Vietnam (2006 - 2007), Armenia (2011), Bulgaria (2014) and Norway (2016).
We have also have done several projects for NGOs like Cordaid (Sierra Leone 2012), the Royal Tropical Institute (India and Uganda 2012) and the prestigious Institute of Development Studies (Kenya 2015). You can find more information about these projects here.
The studio is located in Ateliers De Kersenboomgaard, situated in an old cherry orchard in Leidsche Rijn, at the city borders of Utrecht: a proper place to get inspired and to work with talent (and not just tools). The location is very easy to reach by public transport (10 min walk from Station Terwijde) or by car(just 10 minutes off the A2) and parking is free. Make sure your navigation-software is up-to-date, since there is construction going on nearby.
