Tom Dissevelt

Real Name:
Tom Dissevelt
Profile:
Dutch composer and jazz musician, born March 4, 1921 in Leiden, Netherlands, died in 1989 in Soest, Netherlands.
Tom Dissevelt was one of the most experimental musician in the Netherlands. Under the influence of Karlheinz Stockhausen's music, he was hired in 1956 by Philips in order to develop new ways in music on a scientific base in the natural sciences laboratory. Together with Dick Raaijmakers and other collaborators, he produced electronic experimental music between 1956 and 1963. They thus started e.g. 7 years before publication of the Dr. Who-Theme, which is counted as one of the first electronic musical pieces.
The musical compositions and recordings were not honoured by Philips and Dissevelt left the company. He got later bassist for Wim Sonneveld and Toon Hermans. Eventually he became a forgotten musician. 15 years after his death in 1989, his wife Rina, the sister of Rita Reys, made accessible a crate of bands to music historians, which was hidden by Tom Dissevelt on the attic of his house. This led to a reissue of these works in 2004.
