I am an alumnus of the Conservatory of Utrecht. Before enrolling at the conservatory, I studied Animation Design at the Art Academy of Zwolle.
I would describe myself as a conceptual artist/composer, using different inputs and contexts to create original work. Curiosity is the starting point of all my work. Curiosity of literature, science, films, social constructs, human psychology and sociology, time, etcetera. I believe keeping an open frame of mind to new outlooks creates a broad range of works with a large variety of different origins.
If you want to support me in my work, you can do so by pledging to Stichting ECHO on Patreon. Stichting ECHO is a cultural platform based in Utrecht that supports artists in creating their work.
"Stef belongs to a new generation of inventive creators with a unique sound. He is a wayward, original musician that bursts of energy bearing an unrestrained fantasy and broad musical frame of mind."
