Welcome to my website. I am a 29 year old composer, writing music mostly for films & television. Since the summer of 2020 I left SMP, a music studio based in Amsterdam, and started working on personal projects again.

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. Since then, I consider myself a fan of movie soundtracks.

Since I grew a little older, I also started enjoying and learning much from other genres like rock, electronic & classical music. I take my inspirations from things around me that interest me, like books I’ve read or walking in nature.

About Me

The examples displayed are but a small portion of the work I have done.  All my music that I wrote while working at SMP can be seen and heard on many television programs on Dutch television channels. For my film work I have written in a variety of styles; action, comedy, romantic, thriller & horror. Two years ago 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. Last 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.
