‘Avalon’ marks my first collaboration with director Vincenzo De Jonghe and I hope it won’t be our last. It’s a relevant story about life and love. For more than two years, the 84-year-old Maurice has been taking care of his terminally ill wife, Yvonne. Because of the stress and strain of caring for someone in need of constant supervision, the line between nurturing and torturing is easily crossed. Is the elderly couple still capable of uncovering the tenderness of their bond?
I’m proud to add that this film has won the ‘Sundance Channel’ Vimeo Audience Award.
I was thrilled when Sileni Studios gave me the opportunity to score my first game. It’s about alien robots trying to destroy the old Mayan civilization. Musically I’ve chosen to explore new sounds that both represent the futuristic, evil robots, as well as the ancient Maya’s.
I’m very excited to announce I’m working on this great new television show that starts airing on october 5th. The series is set in Kattenoog, a charming little village on the edge of a mysterious lake. For years, the village has been in thrall to the legend of a magic stone that attracts witches, vampires and ghosts. To protect Kattenoog’s inhabitants, the Mystery Club was founded a long time ago; Eli, Robin and Simone all dream of becoming members. But that dream won’t come true without a challenging adventure. The legend has also caught the attention of Max, Boris and Daphne of Booh-TV, an online channel specialising in scary myths. They head out to the village to check out the legend: will they discover the secret of the Magic Stone?
Anjali Taneja, who also wrote House of Anubis, scripted The Kattenoog Mystery Club; and Douglas Boswell directs. Santeboetiek–Het Konijn and Goed Verhaal produced the series for VTMKZOOM and RTL Telekids. The Kattenoog Mystery Club received support from the Flanders Audiovisual Fund/Media Fund
The original soundtrack is available through Kronos Records and can be purchased here
“Floris & Pip” is a romantic short – directed by Coen Haver & Joanne Hakkert – for which I wrote the music. It’s an enchanting little story about the 10 year old Floris who’s head over heels in love with the most beautiful girl. The score itself is a charming little piano-score that highlights the emotion on screen.
