#Music #Science #Technology

MuST is a foundation aiming to initiate, support and/or stimulate projects/research in the field of music, science & technology, with an emphasis on creating artistic added value and connecting musicians (composers, performers, etc.) with scientists, engineers, researchers, tinkerers, technicians and other interested parties.

Music with sensor technology

MuST supports the music with sensor technology project I'm working on. Check out the videos below for some first impressions :

H.A.R.T.

Human Augmentation Research & Technology. In 2022 I started cooperating with Team HART (Eindhoven University of Technoloy). Team HART develops a sleeve that can translate audio into vibrational patterns. Those patterns can be felt on the arm. By composing a special piece and designing these patterns we create an augmented music experience.

Bio

As you probably have figured out by now or already knew: I'm a bass_clarinet specialist and (film)composer; and physics teacher. I studied clarinet at the Fontys Conservatory in Tilburg and specialised on bass_clarinet with the world-renowned bass_clarinetist Henri Bok Â. But before I started studying music, I studied at the Eindhoven University of Technology where I graduated in the field of physics.
Although I'm classically trained, I enjoy exploring many musical worlds and technological possibilities; such influences can be heard in my compositions and performances, which often transcend genre definition.

As a performer I perform as a soloist, combining motion sensor tech with the bass_clarinet, and with various musicians, engineers and ensembles, including popduo Meander, Team HART (TU Eindhoven) and my trio Rodinia.

As a composer I made my first success with "Wals van Fantasie", a composition for concert band, which has been performed in various countries. In May 2016, one of my compositions, "Binary Digits", a work for wind ensemble and percussion regarding the basic computer language, was well received by musicians, press and public. In addition to composing for large ensembles, I also compose works for smaller ensembles and short films.

Since October 2020 I'm the artistic director of the MuST foundation. MuST, founded by myself, organises and supports project in the fields of music, science and technology.

At Microlab at Strijp-S, Eindhoven (NL) I have my own nice studio. This is the place where I experiment, rehearse, work on new composition, make recordings and where I teach (bass) clarinet. If you happen to be in the neighbourhood, please feel welcome ui to visit me!
