Image and Sound

While working at the Tropenmuseum (see picture) I learned about the combination of image and sound. Slideshows, 35 and 16 mm film, video, recording and directing of voice-overs. I made field recordings in India, also in (then) North Yemen, Turkye and Holland, to be used in films and slideshows.

As a freelancer I was involved in the making of many audiovisual productions. For example, I was the recording engineer for a movie called “Kyodai makes the big time” by Ian Kerkhof, a no-budget film that won a Gouden Kalf award, alas not for sound! A team of several people made five cartoonfilms about student life in Utrecht in different ages for the University Museum Utrecht. Lekdijk Recording produced the soundtrack.
