About Joost


Joost van Dijk (05-05-1970) is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist, singer, composer, videographer (and sometimes photographer) based in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

‚Finding art school way too restricting for me, I chose to go my own way and first started working as a visual artist.
Gradually, my life flow and inspiration took me more towards composing music and soundscapes and until now I have composed, recorded and edited music, soundscapes and soundeffects for theatre, dance and film for over 20 years, as well as performing in various art- and theatreprojects, and more recent as singer songwriter.
Over the years, I’ve started combining this with my original visual aspirations also doing filming and photography; commissioned works as well as my own.

With my visual works as well as with my music, I let sensitivity, feeling and atmosphere prevail over technical details and intellectual complexity and let chance and improvisation play together freely and in balance with detail and precision.

I have been doing commissioned photography / filming / editing and music / sound design for Celine Werkhoven, Australian director Samara Hersch, documentaries, dance company LaMelis, De Kwekerij location theatre, designer Maarten Baas, Studio Tween, Docman, Strijbos & van Rijswijk, dance-theatre company WELLES, Sounding Bodies, Beeldjutters, Het Zuidelijk Toneel, Plastic Soup Foundation, Proefdiervrij, Radio Nederland Wereldomroep, Teleac, independent artists, cultural organizations like 'L Avventura, business organizations and private portrait- and artwork projects. Live performances of my songs and soundscapes have brought me to theatre stages, abandoned factories, nightly forests, high class hotels, festivals, funerals, exhibitions, fields of heather and cosy living rooms. And the journey has only just begun.’
