My name is Bas Bouma.
I am mainly a composer and arranger. I’ve written music for ensembles, short films, animation films, commercials an art installation and a tv documentary. To get the most out of my music, the human element is an important part of it. Music has to live, breathe.
My main influences are pop music (one major influence is the work of Radiohead as well as the solo work of Jonny Greenwood), contemporary classical music (from Pärt to Ligeti, from Ravel to Schnittke), classical and film music.
I studied at the Utrecht School of Arts, where I received a Master of Music, European Media Master and a Bachelor of Music with Honours in composition.
Music is about chemistry: experiment, expertise and intuition. I combine stuff to create music that moves.
