Besides providing music and sounds for voice-overs for radio, TV, theatre, advertising and technology, I work on two major projects: JZZBUCKET and FORMLOOS.
The catchy music of JZZBUCKET (pronounce: jazzbucket) is heavy beats, funky bass and lots of jazzy keyboards and horns. A mix of hip-hop, funky, jazz and electro. Each song is made up of 30 to 50 small music samples.
I play these samples myself or come from old LPs. In 2010 I released my debut album “Excactly what you think it is”. Now ten years later I have just released my fifth album “For the King of Crime”, a tribute to the crime writer Elmore Leonard.
keywords: sample based, funky, jazzy, breakbeat, hammon organ, kicking brass, 60’s blue note vibe.
The soundscape project FORMLOOS the focus is on spoken word compositions using the granular synthesis method. With this technique you divide a text read aloud into micro sound particles. Then play those particles next to each other, through each other and let them cross with each other, until a composition is created. Each EP contains texts by famous philosophers such as Descartes, Hume and Pascal.
Three EPs have now been released.
seeking The soundscapes of the FORMLOOS project lends itself for an art installation or video art. It would be great to work with an Artist on this.
