For Arjen, the focus of producing or mixing music is communication. Find out what the artist is trying to express through his/her music, enhance that message, and make it accessible for a larger audience so they, too, can understand it. Communication between the engineer and the artist, and between the artist and the audience – this is the key to making music.
After his formal education in Holland and the U.K., Arjen began his audio career right here at Wisseloord; starting as an intern, progressing into an in-house engineer. He then travelled the world to refine and broaden his skills, landing enviable positions at studios such as Abbey Road (London), PlusXXX (Paris), Teldex (Berlin), Mosfilm (Moscow), and Sound Inn Studio in Tokyo.
After the rebuild of Wisseloord, Arjen felt the urge to return to the place where his life in music began, and we’re very happy he’s back. He’s worked with Simple Minds, Toots Thielemans, Armin van Buuren, 50 Cent, Damien Rice, Marco Borsato, Drive like Maria, and on scoring/cast albums for Roi Lion, Little Mermaid scoring, Disney USA, Stage Entertainment Worldwide and many more.
