Daan Hofman is an Amsterdam based filmcomposer. He studied Composing for Film at the Conservatory of Amsterdam and other subjects including: Arranging, Harmony, Orchestration, and a lot of jazz and world music.
More recently he completed the Advanced Sound Design course at Point Blank, electronic music school in London, was part of the Fusion Filmscoring masterclass in Thessaloniki and started a master in Media Composition at the University of Chichester.
His film music is a hybrid style of acoustic and electronic sounds, using classical elements in a modern production approach.
“A lot of what I stand for comes together in working on film: My background in theatre, a musical diversity, storytelling and collaborating with other artists. It always fascinates me how music deals with image and language, and how a mix of these disciplines creates something new”.
