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. (catwalk, post-production video, sonic branding, etc) Some of my work and performances have appeared at art nights, club- and museum nights and fashion shows

Since 2010, I discovered that I have a great fascination for the symbiosis between fashion and sound, it started by assisting Salvador Breed with music research for the shows of Iris van Herpen. To become a music designer for fashion shows, fits me like a glove. Since 2013 I’ve been an educator and artistic music director in higher edication in art & fashion academies, for coaching students and young artists.

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