Organization's description

Tamara van der Laarse (1977, Amsterdam ) is a soundartist, electronic music composer and educator. Her multidisciplinary practice spans formats including art performances, music releases, photography, video. Van der Laarse’s performances have appeared at fashion shows, art nights, club-, and museum nights. In her work she analyses different approaches with the use of sound and music, working almost like a sonic architect. Using electronic compositions, with own samples and various recordings, making shapes in sound, dynamic beats, dreamy soundtracks. The sound work is connected with movement for a human’s body, either choreographed for a runway or with dancers or eventually shaped in a video, as sound for an object. As an educator she has been tutoring /coaching fashion students in their final (graduation) assessment, to assist them how to work with music & sound for their graduation work. Previous collaborations with: the Gerrit Rietveld Academie Fashion Department, Amsterdam Fashion Instituut (Individuals by AMFI), ArtEz Fashion Design.
