Cello and Image

Last year I started collaborating with animator and director Udo Prinsen; I send him music and he transforms it into animation films. We are working on some new material but for now have a look at this experimental short film with his images and my own composition inspired by the wood in my cello and the life of trees. You can see more of Udo's work on his website (click here)

West Side Trio accompanies silent films, do spacious performances and play concerts. The special WST sound is based on string instruments with live electronics and voices- Our first CD "Apocalyptic Sunrise" was released in 2015.

We also collaborate with different artists. In 2019 WST toured in Europe with Jonathan Jeremiah. Coming up this year is a tour with singer Margriet Sjoerdsma and Odelion Orchestra in the Netherlands and Indonesia.

We recorded numerous CD's and did many sessions for movies and commercials. -Some of them with our own string arrangements: with Yentl en de Boer (live at the Concertgebouw), Margriet Sjoerdsma, Sonja van Hamel, Bill Laurance and Ken Stringfellow.

West Side Trio also has a website, click here to check it out!

Knol d'amour

In 2011 I was asked by the foodies from Super Hallo to team up with singer-songwriter Jonathan Brown (Dusty Stray) to make and record some tunes for a potato installation. Yes - you read it right. Potato.Installation.

I had no associations whatever of potatoes and music when we started but I think the result was very good! Super Hallo's potatoe installation on wheels is still rolling around the BeneLux - you can look,listen and eat their incredible fries at festivals through the whole festival season.

In the meantime they have developed another potato-installation: DJ Frietmachine which also tours different festivals all over Europe.

Check their website for dates to experience potatoes in an artful and very tasty way!

..and feel free to contact me for projects combining food and music. I love both :)
