commercial, tv show, film, documentary or game. Musicplays an important role in how you perceive video. I will compose the music that suits your needs and customize it until you're fully satisfied. Music & video is pure synergy, so why not create something together?
I'm a composer for tv, film and game based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Since 2007 I've composed a lot of music for films, documentaries, animations, games and music libraries. In 2010 I graduated with a Bachelor and Master of Arts degree at the Utrecht School of Arts. During my school period I had the oppertunity to be an intern in the studio of Hollywood composer Jeff Rona.
For me it's very important to get across the message of your video, without distracting the audience from the images. Where to put music, and where to be silent is an important aspect of the craftmanship of a composer. Making a film or game is a collaborative process, so getting feedback from you and make things better is part of my job. Everything to support the video the best way as possible, the way you want it, while remaining my own artistic vision and identity.
I love music with simple but great melodies that stick in your mind. Who doesn't remember the theme from "Indiana Jones", the short melody from the McDonalds commercials ("padapapapaw, I'm Lovin' It") or the themes from tv series like "The Simpsons". They get associated with the video inmediately. That recognisable melody adds character and personality to a project. It's something I always try to do, while getting across a feeling, emotion or atmosphere that cannot be seen on screen.
Why work with me?
+ able to work fast (1 minute/day for a fast full orchestral piece, 3 minutes/day for a slow piano piece)
+ fast and good communication with the customer. Almost always online and a fast internet connection to deliver files with WeTransfer or Dropbox. Communication is possible by telephone, e-mail and Skype.
+ for games there's the possibility to deliver adaptive music. I work with Earquake for game audio. We can deliver both sound and music which is directly implementable in your game!
+ big network of musicians, sound designers, producers, engineers and other composers to collaborate with. Even high quality orchestras in Budapest are an option if your budget allows it!
