Jesse Broekman is a composer. His autonomous work has focussed on chamber music, with or without electronics. Central to this work is an attraction to sounds of an unstable and unpredictable nature. His electronic music focusses on trying to excite acoustic instruments by electronic means, rather then writing music for loudspeakers. He has been involved in a wide range of interdisciplinary projects ranging from music for dance, installations in collaboration with visual artists to writing chamber opera and creating musictheater for young audiences. He has worked with numerous musicians, ensembles and theaters. His work with Ensemble Oerknal, Ensemble Garage & Ensemble Proton has been especially important in shaping his writing.
Between 2005 and 2013 he studied philosophy at the University of Amsterdam, composition & music technology at the Utrecht School of Arts with Barbara Woof and Jorrit Tamminga, and composition at the Musikhochschule Stuttgart with Marco Stroppa. He currently teaches electronic composition technique at the KASK Conservatorium Gent.
