HOW TO BECOME MORE CONSCIOUS TO WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR FOOD INDUSTRY?
I met Esther Molenwijk in a period that the world turned around which brings good conversations to the table. What do we understand about human nature, what is created in an industrialised world and how conscious am I. We both had the same feeling to spend more energy in the things that we love, to examine the world around us and to develop ourselves. I focused myself on a sound education year to understand and learn what hearing, sound and music really is and how to record and produce it. Esther focused on her idea: To create a podcast about the protein transition which could lead to a world problem solver concerning climate change and less nitrogen.
So that is how things came together. Getting more conscious and learning from people in the field to create a good podcast that leads to more Studio Plantaardig podcasts in the future. Hereby creating a podcast learning module for people and organisations who want to start their own professional podcast channel.
SOUNDTRACK: KEEP HOPE
Keep Hope is a short film that investigates the story behind an appearance. Born from the moment when meeting a stranger called Tamarah. This interaction left us with the feeling that there was a deeper layer to this person which we were not really able to grasp. Attracted to this depth, we decided to create this film, that is solely based on curiosity and intuition.
We hope it will be an inspiration for hope and perseverance for others too. It is so incredibly powerful and strengthens us when we dare to share the ways we heal ourselves.

ART ROCKS CONTEST 2018
Mythologies are centuries old stories that tell us about being human and our human nature. They give us wisdom. Mythes explain our shortcomings and struggles that we experience in life concerning love, power, politics, jealousy, rituals, loss etc. These old stories and their meanings are being repeated in television series like The Bold and Beautiful.
For the Art Rocks contest I have chosen the painting from Peter Paul Rubens about Achilles being killed by Paris. A painting that is close to me and therefore gave me inspiration to compose a music piece that lets the listener experience the painting with sound. A soundscape narrative focusing on love, power and loss…
– THE MYTHOLOGY OF MODERN LOVE -
For a while now I have been experimenting with photography ( pictures frozen in time ) and soundscapes. The question that intrigues me is: How does sound influence the story and the mood of the “static” picture? Or how do we as viewer experience the photo with music to get a deeper understanding what is really there and what is not? Creating a personal story with our emotions and fictional mind.
We all have a brain filled with time framed experiences of life. A library of emotional images resulted from our upbringing and childhood experiences. Based on this we develop our personal thoughts, emotions, social and cultural behavior and expectations. We use these emotional images to reflect and respond to people and adept to situations but also to inspire ourselves to create stories. With the use of sound I, try to amplify your personal emotions within a photo and to inspire viewers, focused in a gaze.
This soundtracks is called – GOODBYE – and was inspired by a photo of Henry Cartier-Bresson.
