I produce music for collaborative art projects, performances and fashionshows. My work as a creative music designer is the intersection between music and (performing) arts. I studied audio visual art and graphic design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy.

Art, design, movement are always part of my work. I’m classically trained in music from the age of six, as a child I played piano, cello and in most of my work I focus mainly upon electronic music composition.

I’ve been a guest tutor at several art / fashion departments at Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam Fashion Instituut, ArtEz Fashion Design, where I teach students how to work with sound and music, (in a particular artistic language), connected to the artistic practice of the student. (for a fashion show or art performance or installation.)

Since 2010 I’ve been part of fashion collaborations, by providing music research, creating sound concepts or making music for: couture, non-couture, streetwear, runway, art installation, (live) group and solo-shows, performance, and designing sound for video content / online projects. I work closely with other artists, participants, choreographers and light / stage designers.
