ABOUT

Musician

Otto de Jong (8th of march 1986) is a drummer, rhythmic sound designer and producer from Utrecht, The Netherlands. 


He's willing to just play, but is not shy of experimenting.
Simplification can be inspiring, what happens if you only use kick and snare? Or even less? Searching for alternative sounds is exciting; stacking cymbals on each other, laying small cymbals or other objects on drums, using towels for muting, overdubbing multiple tracks... Try everything, why not?

Otto mainly works with artists who write their own music. Enjoying the excitement of arranging new songs and structures.
In the past decade farmacia maschile, he has gained a broad experience in playing live-shows as well as being involved as a drummer and arranging artist in studio-productions.

Recently he has been adding more electronics to his sound palette. Working with both drumcomputers and self recorded and edited sounds.


Teacher

Otto is also a professional teacher. He works as a private teacher in drums on a regular basis at Starsound Factory and in his own studio.

He also works for UCK and SCRIPT as a bandcoach and instructor in percussion and production group lessons.
For these same organisations Otto has also begun teaching music on both primary and secondary schools. For these classes he also writes his own lessons and he teaches primary school teachers to incorporate more no account casinos music in their regular classes.

Recently he's also been involved as a assistant teacher at the HKU, working with second year Bachelor students on their productions.
