Playground 
Clubnight

A live DJ Set that mixes minimal, techno and film music in a club setting. A stage comprised of a DJ booth, encased with live instruments. this makes for a rush of strong beats and melodic lines. Join the visceral feast, join Playground.


On a dark October night in Amsterdam in 2016, Buddies premiered, transforming the otherwise elegant recital hall of The Concertgebouw into a scintillating tapestry of heady beats, euphoric drumming and ravishing melodies woven together by the thread of narrative - an account of the quiet beauty, occasional tempestuousness and ultimate solidarity of friendship. 


Combined Creatives

WE EMPOWER CREATIVITY

Combined Creatives is a collaborative collection of creative minds – from musicians to filmmakers, designers to copywriters, photographers to directors – we strive to develop out-of-the-box concepts and make them reality. Calling upon a whole bunch of carefully-curated Creatives with different skills and talents who want to invest in their own ideas through collaboration with other like-minded artists, we dream of a platform of boundless creativity.

Welcome to the new world of collaborative creativity.
Welcome to Combined Creatives.

ROOTS

Bernadeta Astari, soprano, Dana Zemtsov, viola, Dominique Vleeshouwers, percussion & concept

Roots is a collaboration between three award-winning soloists who, as their name suggests, are in search of something a little deeper. Hailing from different backgrounds, Bernadeta Astari (Indonesian), Dana Zemtsov (born in Mexico of Russian heritage and raised in the Netherlands ) and Dominique Vleeshouwers (Dutch) seek to glimpse into their respective cultural pasts, sharing these spectacular differences with one another and the listener alike. This unique combination of soprano, percussion and viola lends itself to a special program as diverse as the musicians themselves.

Child Soldier

In 2013 for my graduation project I combined music, film and fine art to tell the story of a child soldier. This project is the reason why Vincent van Kekerix and I started our company Combined Creatives. 


Kamergesprekken 

This is the trailer of a late-night chamber music series Combined Creatives developed in 2014. Targeting on a young audience, we subtitled it: "social gatherings, powered by music".  It was an occasion where people gathered for a chat, a drink and a small concert before heading off to the next event. 

Ensemble Judique 

In 2012 I founded Ensemble Judique. The programs I developed were always created out of a story. From the story I chose the music. Here are two trailers, one is a children's concert entitled 'The Little Juan' which is about a young boy juggling on a market in Argentina. The other trailer is called 'Por Favor', a story about a young violinist growing up in a very classical culture. After a concert she meets an Argentinian man in a bar.
