Dutch veteran composer, performer, media artist and educator Jan-Bas Bollen (aka BAZR) grew up in an inspiring musical environment of professional instrumentalists and singers. He went on to study violin at soloist level at the Conservatory of Amsterdam and later composition at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, attended Sonology and from then on attracted attention with a versatile working practice.

He writes for soloists, ensembles and dance productions, often with spectacular live electronics and original, modernist visuals. At the same time, his kaleidoscopic musical world fuses sophisticated compositional forms, techniques and ideas from the modernist idiom with minimal influences, experimental electronics and the rousing sound worlds of R&B, Metal, Techno & Drum&Bass, among others. He is also an accomplished bass guitarist and tours worldwide with his magical performance instrument HyperTheremin.
