Welcome! My name is Jochem Weierink and I’m working as a composer for media in the Netherlands, my specialties in the music area are ranging from composing film music to music for advertisements and games.
Born in a musical family it was hard not to follow the same direction. After years of classical piano lessons my interests in composing grew and with the aid of modern technology I started to compose and produce my own music. Before I knew it I was spending all my spare time into this new passion, film music is where my passion and talents flourished most! Hence there was no other possibility after high school than studying “Composition for the Media” at the Utrecht School of the Arts!
In 2008 I got admitted and in 2012 I graduated with a Bachelor of Music and a Master of Arts degree. During these four year of study I went three months to New York for an internship at Elias Arts, one of the major advertising music houses in the USA. This is where I learned the craft of composing music for advertisements. Even though this is an area I love working in, my biggest passion is music for film! A great deal of projects I’ve worked on are in this area of the working field. This dedication for film music was not kept undiscovered, early 2012 I’ve been asked to work as a composer for a hi-end trailer-music company who gave me the opportunity to write trailer-music for Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters! Since then my music is supporting trailers for oscar winning films like “The Imitation Game” and “Ida” and is, among others, being featured in Terrence Mallick’s recent trailer for the film “Knight Of Cups”
