Hi! My name is Jac, I work as a composer, guitarist and producer based in Amsterdam. I became familiar with composing and arranging music as one of the founders of Jungle by Night, an instrumental collective operating in various styles, genres and settings. In the past 12 years we managed to release 7 albums and performed over 600 concerts in 34 countries. This cycle of recording and touring brought me a rich set of musical experiences.


My studio is filled with the tools I deeply cherish. Over the years I gathered various instruments: weird and stringed, wired or synthesized. I have developed a weak-spot for the tones that feel alive, sometimes squeak or shake. I think the combination of these “imperfections” from analog instruments, with the possibilities of digital techniques characterizes my sound design.

Chasing different sounds and rhythms is an unstoppable urge, I collect music from different directions and eras. It broadens my horizon and brings me to new places. Therefore my collection in it’s broad sense – of experiences, instruments and music – helps me to create a new language that supports a story. Take a look around on my website and feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I’m always curious for a new musical adventure.
