As a composer, I love to take on challenging projects that broaden my musical perspective. Thus far my musical endeavours include music for various ensembles and orchestras, involving (live-)electronics, film music, multimedia performances, collaborations with choreographers and visual artists...
From am always trying to looking for new ways to compose or create sound. My classical background gives me great control over the compositional and music technical aspects. Throughout the years of experimenting with digital and analogue sound creation, these are now also part of that musical sound palette.
I graduated from the Royal Conservatory in Brussels (2010) in music writing (BA & MA) and composition (BA), and from the Conservatory of Amsterdam (2016) in composition (BA) and composing for film (MA). Since 2014 I'm active as a freelance composer, orchestrator, conductor a.o. and teaching at the Conservatory of Amsterdam from 2018.
MUSIC FOR FILM
What music in film does best, is to tell us what can not be said in words, with picture or in the sound design. Whether it is to create mystery or give color to a character, to portray the underlying force that drives the protagonist or to communicate the thinking process that goes on in their mind, music has the capacity to give new meaning to that which is already being said on-screen.
Making the less obvious choices whilst scoring or finding that unique sound for the picture are some of the challenges that I love about making music for film. But first and foremost, the goal of the music is to allow us to connect on a deeper level to the story.
Although the work of a composer might seem like a one-man-job, I find working in a team a very inspiring and exciting process. Recent collaborations have been with Chrisnanne Wiegel and STILL Productions
