My name is Joris Holtackers; composer-pianist, multi-instrumentalist, recording engineer awarded 15+ times @ Indabamusic (a.o. by Paul Simon and Steve Reich). I've been hired as a session pianist for several movies like Valentín (by Alejandro Agresti, music by Paul M. van Brugge) and I composed & produced music for media for several Dutch media production companies. As a recording engineer, I recorded, mixed and mastered two albums by Tibetan singer Namgyal Lhamo and as a post audio editor I closely worked with ProjectSAM (cinematic sampling).

After my studies I toured through theater-, classical and pop stages like Bellevue and Paradiso in Amsterdam with several bands/artists/singers, also with appearances on dutch national television. Besides live performing I increasingly do studio session work as a multi-instrumentalist; next to piano I also play percussion, drums and (bass) guitar.

When composing & playing I become fascinated by the fusion of different styles of music and cultures. I compose, arrange and play both classical and modern (jazz, world, pop-rock) music with equal enthusiasm and devotion.

As a recording, mixing & mastering engineer I benefit from both my knowledge and experience as a musician/composer as well as my expertise as an audio engineer to get the desired sound. I'm specialised in recordings with natural, acoustic and organic sounds.
