About the composer
Pieter Straatman (1968) is a composer, pianist and orchestrator based in the Netherlands. His cinematic idiom is a refined synthesis of the epic, lyric and dramatic, with compositions reflecting psychological insights and natural phenomena in contradiction and symbiosis.
Straatman’s music can be heard in many commercials, films like Roald Dahl’s The Swan and Playing in Savage Paradise, award winning docs like Grown in Detroit and and the popular Dutch TV-series Dokter Deen.
As a composer for hire as well as in his personal work, Straatman draws from the paradoxes inherent to humanity: serenity and heroism, euphoria and despair, vulnerability and power.
Pieter shows his versatility in application and genre in his applied compositions.
Scientific and psychological interest
What does sound, music do with our brain? What effects do sounds have on our thoughts, feelings and behavior? Pieter has delved into this and supplements his intuitive power to strengthen the experience of the listener.
With his knowledge of acoustics and studio construction, he creates the optimum sound experience.
