an experienced composer, Johan van der Voet has earned a reputation as a thoughtful soundtrack artist who writes precise, effective underscores that support the story narrative – first and foremost. His catalog includes music for crime, medical and horror genres, but his specialty is creating intricate orchestral tracks and ambient soundscapes for drama scored specifically to picture. This is especially effective for intimate movies, character driven films and sensitive documentary subjects.
Over the last few years his influence has grown as he has provided music for the Discovery Channel, NBC, MTV & the BBC among others. After being nominated Holland’s “Best Media Composer by Buma/Stemra in 2012, more accolades followed. His score “The Future Behind“ helped the feature documentary secure nominations and prizes in several film festivals in 2014. A year later the score for “Clocking Paper” [USA feature 2015] was not only well reviewed, it got a CD release which can be downloaded here, or streamed. And recently he scored “Wognum”, a documentary for NPO broadcast which won the top prize in its catagory at the prestigious Netherlands Film Festival in October 2018.
