I am a professional sound engineer with 8+ years of experience, specialized in amplifying live concerts and events, but I have also recorded, mixed and produced a few cd's. I've worked almost any style of music rangeing from classical contemporary music to classical, opera, folk, jazz indian, pop, rock and tango music. My long background as a music performer has given me a special understanding for the musicians needs and deepened communication skills with the musicians, which together with my understanding of many styles of music has led me to a successful engineer. Also an ability to read large and comples music scores has proven invaluable especially when recording classical ensembles or amplifying contemporary classical music.
My educational background includes a bachelor degree in sound engineering at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. This is a technical degree on sound recording and live amplification and on the use of recording/amplification equipments. Furthermore I have a bachelor degree in Jazz trumpet performance at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, with a minor degree in pedagogics, piano and various studies in harmony.
My professional background includes working with many major orchestras and concert halls in the Netherlands, for example Orchestra of the Concertgebouw, Dutch Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Asko|Schoenberg ensemble, Holland Symfonia, Klang and Holland Opera. Besides freelance work, I've worked with sound companies Panis Musical Engineering, and DaCapo.
As a music performer, I worked with groups such as Asko|Schoenberg ensemble, and many different jazz groups.
Furthermore I would like to add that I'm fluent in the following languages: English, German, Dutch, Danish and Spanish.
I am confident that my experience and diverse knowledge can offer your company a beneficial input.
