Film Music

Over the years Evelien has composed for many films, mostly documentaries. When making film music she likes to operate om the boundary of sound/sounddesign and music. She records environmental sounds or sounds made with objects, blends them with acoustic instruments and processes them electronically. She subtly enhances the emotional impact of the images but always leaves room for the imagination of the viewers.
