Joost Diederen

Joost from Amsterdam completed his bachelor’s degree in Composition for the Media at the HKU, Cum Laude. As a composer and sound designer, he has a special passion for creating sound textures with instrumental effects and organic-sounding synthesizers. The boundary between music and sound design within film fascinates him and he seeks out collaborations with musicians and ensembles as much as possible. According to him, this gives the music extra depth.

Joost’s work experience includes numerous short audiovisual projects. The short film Waar Thuis Was won Best Score at the Independent Film Festival in Los Angeles. He also served as music assistant for major American animation shows such as Minnie’s Bow-Toons and Super Kitties.
