I am currently attending a course in Sound Design at the Dutch
Academy in Utrecht. In 2007 I started doing freelance projects ranging from sound design for games to mastering and sound design for an opera.
In the last 4 years I started specializing in sound synthesis and sampling. Along the way I created free sample packs, patches and a series of Instruments for NI's Kontakt Sampler.
In 2005 I started netlabel and e-zine
Fant00m. We hosted label nights at clubs, released music and
wrote articles to provide a platform for other artists. Fant00m was
merged with Humanworkshop in 2009.
In my music I use sound design as an instrument, this work
ethic enables me to incorporate sound design in a musical and
expressionistic way. I performed on festivals in Europe under
my ThorLtd monniker.
