The Amsterdam based composer, performer and producer Evelien van den Broek blends avant pop with electronica and contemporary classical music. She has released three albums, including False Memories, with vivid personal accounts of things that never really happened. In her KUrKKU performances Van den Broek transforms her voice with live electronics, using Wii game controllers, a foot pedal and five neon yellow speakers. With the indietronica band Daisy Bell she’s released the album London and made the live show Year Without A Summer, performed with gamelan ensemble Gending and featuring Graham Lewis (Wire) on video. Van den Broek has composed music for multiple critically acclaimed documentaries and modern dance performances. She’s created quirky music box sound installations and several sound walks, including Stemmengeschuifel for Soundtrackcity and Internationaal Theater Amsterdam. She holds a Bachelor of Music (with Honours) and Master of Arts degree from Music and Technology at the Utrecht School of Arts (NL). Her latest project is Biophonica, with electronic music about extinction, using field recordings of extinct and endangered animals, trumpet, electronics and two growling and chirping analogue synths.
