In 2000 I started to work as a freelance soundenigneer under the name ‘PUUR Geluidstechniek’ wich translates to ‘PURE Sound reinforcement’. My clients were national and international and included bands, rental companies, ballets, producers of dinner shows, standup comedians and man many more (The Scene, Focus Showequipment, Wentink Events, Ampco, The Umbilical Brothers, Hans Dorrestijn, Scapino Ballet) Working for them I expanded my experience and I’m still learning.
The company name ‘PURE Sound reinforcement’ holds my vision on sound reinforcement; my goal is to reinforce the sound from the stage as original as possible, so it represents the original performance on the stage. And this ‘pure’ comes back in my actions, ; I am practical, problem-solving, helpful and customer-oriented.
In my years of experience as a sound engineer, I have also immersed myself in other disciplines; light, video, production. It became increasingly clear to me that good coöperation between all disciplines leads to the most beautiful productions.
It’s part of my character to make sure that other people are enjoying themselves and can perform to their best ability. That’s why I love to support people in performing, so my focus has shifting over time to the technical production side of my profession to make other people ‘shine’. Technical production includes both preparation and execution.
