Hessel Veldman

Real Name:Hessel Veldman

Hessel Veldman (1956), musician, composer and radio-producer, started his search for uncomfortable music during his teens.
An early fascination for electronic noise and dissonance, from the beginning of the 1970s, in combination with a preference for writing and performing extremely idiosyncratic music, has created a wide range of experimental compositions and radio productions.

For the Dutch broadcasting company VPRO, Hessel produced his first experimental solo work 'I Can Hear Trumpets ?' (1980). During the Holland Festival of 1983 in Amsterdam, 'Portable Vaudeville' with Willem De Ridder was created. Four nights in a row this sound-poetry show was presented in the Schouwburg in Amsterdam. Under the name FNTC many experimental radio plays were made during the 80s and 90s and broadcasted worldwide.

Via his private cassette label Exart (1982-1995), music albums and video productions were released under all kinds of artists-names (including Y Create [electro-psych-pop], Forbidden Photographs [noise], Gorgonzola Legs [impro industrial-jazz; a live on stage experience], Austin & Kelly [plunderphonics]).
And since the last few years, after the release of the CD 'Madadayo' in 2004 on EE Tapes, Hessel regularly performs solo or together with other like-minded artists on special request.

In 2004 Hessel Veldman started producing for Concertzender public-radio in The Netherlands.
