Henk Badings

Profile:
A prolific composer of nearly 500 complete works covering all musical genres, Henk Badings (Jan. 17, 1907, Bandung, Indonesia - June 26, 1987, Maarheeze, Netherlands) is one of the best known figures in twentieth-century Dutch music. If many of his works was written in the traditional diatonic scale, he's most famous for his electronic and microtonal music.

Badings was teacher and director at various Dutch conservatories from 1935 to 1945. From 1940 to 1945 he headed the conservatory in The Hague. During the war, Badings was a member of the Culture Council (Kultuurkamer) and received the Rembrandt Prize. As a result, after the war he was no longer allowed to be a member of a musical professional association or to publish about music for some time.
After the war, Henk Badings was forced to focus on teaching. In 1956 he founded the electronic music studio of Philips in Eindhoven. He taught acoustics and computing science at the Instituut voor Sonologie of the University of Utrecht until 1977 and was professor of composition at the Musikhochschule Stuttgart.

Father of Vera Badings.
