Turning Point (Performed by Thys and Noordpool Orchestra)

This feels like coming home: an official orchestral version of one of the tracks from the ‘Ithaca’ EP. An EP that was written with a lot of orchestral instruments, and with a sound-design/mixdown esthetic that almost has more in common with the dynamic sound of the orchestra than some of my and Amon’s music in other genres that are more focused on drums and impact. The Turning Point recording by Noorpool Orchestra is out today on VISION! You can also watch the beautiful corresponding video on self – titled here.

Iris van Herpen’s ‘Biomimicry’ out now!

Iris Van Herpen and Nationaal Ballet commissioned this short movie “Biomimicry”. Ryan McDaniels directed it, and I composed the music with some help from Salvador Breed and a harp part by the lovely Lavinia Meijer. Thanks to all involved, I’m so proud of this amazing team and this result!  Credits: Director: Ryan McDanielsMovement Director: Juanjo Arqués Dancer: JingJing Mao Music: Thijs de Vlieger | Lavinia Meijer Sound Consultancy: Salvador Breed Art Direction: Ryan McDaniels Casting: Tobias Heinrichs Hair: Daan Kneppers | NCL Representation Make-Up: Suzanne Verberk | NCL RepresentationProduction: Ryan McDaniels | Tobias Heinrichs | Valentine Bouquet | Anu Viheriäranta
