About

Hello, I’m Tamara van der Laarse, an Amsterdam based electronic music composer, educator, soundartist and creative producer. My multidisciplinary practice spans different disciplines, including producing and directing sound and music, creative production, performing, photography, djing, video and graphic design.
My work is moving between music, performing arts, fashiondesign, tutoring and creating autonomous work.

I compose and produce music for (live) fashionshows, art performances, (site-specific) installations, moving image, inter-/multidisciplinary productions. I love creat a sonic world that becomes tangible by connecting with other art disciplines. Some of my work and performances have appeared at art nights, club- and museum nights and fashion shows

I’ve been an educator/artistic music director at several art & fashion academies, for coaching (graduation) students or giving workshops. I have been collaborating with Amsterdam Fashion Instituut (Individuals), ArtEZ Fashion Design, Gerrit Rietveld Academie.

As a creative producer I have curated art/club events for festivals, artnights and pop-up exhibitions. Full biography here
