Welcome to my website. I am a 27 year old composer, writing music mostly for films & television. Since the summer of 2018 I am working at SMP, a music studio based in Amsterdam. SMP hosts several state of the art music studios, where a team of composers write and produce music on a daily basis for all sorts of media productions.

On this website you can find some of my work. You can contact me at info@jesseheslinga.com or on social media (mostly facebook).

Here you can listen to some examples of my work:

My music:

Since playing games as a young kid, I was already crazy about the music that was used in the background. I remember trying to keep my characters alive while recording the music on a tape recorder. Also I listened extensively to the soundtrack of the Lion King, always skipping the songs and listening to the score only (!). Since then, I consider myself a fan of movie soundtracks. Other big releases that made a big impression on me when I grew up where; Dinosaur by James Newton Howard, The Lord of The Rings by Howard Shore, Harry Potter by John Williams and a little later, all the works that Hans Zimmer did with Christopher Nolan, most notably Inception in 2010.

Since I grew a little older, I started enjoying classical music by the likes of Beethoven, Mozart, Mahler, Sibelius, Shostakovich and others. No better way than to learn from the masters! A bit more modern, I am hugely influenced by bands like Muse, Radiohead, Rage Against The Machine and other bands in the genre.

About Me

The examples displayed are but a small portion of the work I have done. For my film work I have written in a variety of styles; action, comedy, romantic, thriller & horror. Early this year I finished my first feature film, a Bollywood production called Zia. Also I finished my work on the documentary Burnout, produced by IdeeFix in the Netherlands, as part of their promotional campaign. And at last, earlier this year licensing label BMG Music released my first album release available for licensing, which you can find over here.

I have played music basically all my life, starting with the piano at a young age, and moving into playing drums when I got older. In those years I discovered that playing someone else’s music wasn’t what I wanted to do the rest of my life, so I started writing my own music. Since then I have grown a lot as a composer, starting with simple two-handed piano productions to full orchestral and electronic productions. I have worked on a lot of really cool projects in the past and look forward to what is coming!

I hope you like what I have done so far. Please reach out to me if there is anything you want to discuss.
Best,
Jesse Heslinga
