Works

Cinematopé

With Joris van Midde, long term friend and artistic director of De Kwekerij, I started a new project called Cinematopé, which is specifically focussed on the creation of (short) films. A small collection of films and ideas can be seen on the website of De Kwekerij.

About Joost

 

Joost van Dijk (05-05-1970) is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist, singer, composer and videographer/film maker 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 filming / photography, editing and music & sound design for:

De Kwekerij location theatre, Beeldjutters, Maarten BAAS, Sounding Bodies, Strijbos & van Rijswijk, Plastic Soup Foundation, Proefdiervrij, Celine Werkhoven, Het Zuidelijk Toneel, Australian director Samara Hersch, documentaries, dance company LaMelis, Studio Tween, Docman, dance-theatre company WELLES, Radio Nederland Wereldomroep, Teleac, independent artists, cultural organizations like 'L Avventura, business organizations like NIBAG Group and private portrait- and artwork projects.

Both performing and filming have brought me to theatre stages, abandoned factories, nightly forests, high class hotels, festivals, funerals, exhibitions, fields of heather and cosy living rooms. A journey with endless inspiration.’
