Anne Frank Stichting Videos
Custom music compositions for online storytelling video’s. On request I’ve made these ambient tracks to fit the various subjects of the video’s while trying to maintain a more up to date sound, but preventing it from getting too dramatic, positive or monotone.
In November 2018 the renewed Anne Frank House and website has been released including the ‘Virtual Achterhuis Online’ with the video’s spread across the various parts of the website. You can see it at: https://www.annefrank.org/nl/anne-frank/

ClassicNL Jingles and Sonic Branding
Agency: Top Format
Client: ClassicNL (formerly known as ClassicFM) – Pieter Hunfeld (General Station Manager and musician at Metropole Orchestra)
For the repositioning of ClassicNL (after expired license of ClassicFM in the Netherlands) the station needed a fresh sonic logo and new jingles that fitted the new playlist and station identity. I created 4 jingles and arranged a total of 6 jingles for the package including the new sonic logo.
Due early Covid-19 restrictions we had to record the orchestra per section of a maximum of 5 musicians per section, but ultimately we recorded 15 musicians with overdubs and part/voice changes for a fuller sound. The notation and additional orchestration was done by Damiano Pascarelli. Additional composition of the package by Willem Pauwels.
Studio engineers: Paul Pouwer and Dirk Overeem. Assistant producer: Gert Jan Blom. Production: Sophie Koopmans

CNV Connectief Podcast
Podcast recording & post production for Union CNV (Connectief)
Due Covid-19 restrictions I had to come up with a solution to produce this podcast remotely and recorded the conversations from home. I used Source Elements software and send packages with plug & play microphones and instructions to the persons who needed to be interviewed. With remote configuration help trough Zoom the recordings turned out to be higher quality then expected and with some post production and mixing the sound of the podcasts turned out really well regarding the fact that it all was recorded from the peoples own offices and bedrooms.
I also composed an custom intro & outro tune for the podcast and delivered the podcast in various formats for the different streaming and podcast platforms.
