Living in The Hague, Netherlands with my family, I work in a wide range of art and technology, as educator, performer, composer and technician. During my studies in Music Technology at the Utrecht School of Arts in the previous century, I started playing the theremin, which became my main musical instrument and performance tool. I have performed with theremin and live electronic music since 1997, and have presented workshops about theremin and electronic music since 1999.
I am a member of the Pand ZuidWest community.
Performance and composition
In my own music, I use the theremin as main sound source and main controller, together with analog and digital equipment, as well as computers, as tools to create my own language for telling stories in sound.
Electric Storks is an electronic improvisation duo that consist of composer Gene Carl and myself. Publications of selections of our first improv sessions in 2010, as well as current musical meetings are due to come out soon.
I was also a guest member of the Schreck Ensemble, performing on theremin and their own developed Stratifier, from 2011 to 2016.
Exoot en Meneer Dinges
I am a DJ of original popular music for Radio Barkas, and present interactive street theater installations for Exoot and Meneer Dinges.
In 2010-2011 I did a post-HBO course in art education. Since then I prepare and present workshops on art, science and technology for children aged 4-12, most notably in coöperation with Cultura Nederland. In a coöperation between Cultura and the OBA Amsterdam libraries I teach at their makerspaces.
After an introduction into theater sound and light at the Lieve Vrouwen Theater in Amersfoort, NL in 2005, I have been active as an allround theater technician. Most notably with musical theater group Middelbare Meiden.
