About Joost

 

Joost van Dijk (05-05-1970) is a self-taught solo multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, singer/songwriter and videographer/film maker based in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

'Realizing my flow was not in Art school (or in any school, for that matter), I chose to go my own way and started working as a painter and performer.
Gradually, my life 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; commissioned works as well as my own.'


'With my music as well as with my visual works, I let sensitivity, feeling and atmosphere prevail over technical details and intellectual complexity. Being a real dreamer with little theoretical knowledge comes with limitations, but it's within those limitations that I find the most freedom and depth as I'm constantly forced to improvise, rely on my gut feeling and stay and play in the moment. After all, that's the only place where everything is.'

Some awesome people and companies I work/worked with:

De Kwekerij, Beeldjutters, Helma Melis /LaMelis, Iris van Ginkel, Batja ten Kortenaar, Podium Bloos, Celine Werkhoven, Maarten Baas, Strijbos & van Rijswijk. Sounding Bodies, Ulrike Doszman, Het Zuidelijk Toneel, IntroDans

And also:

Plastic Soup Foundation, Proefdiervrij, Australian director Samara Hersch, Studio Tween, Docman, Radio Nederland Wereldomroep, Teleac, independent artists, cultural organizations like 'L Avventura, business organizations like NIBAG Group, documentaries and private 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.

Grateful for being able to do what I do.’
