Biography René Uijlenhoet

1961

René Uijlenhoet was born in 1961.


Education

He studied electro-acoustic composition under Ton Bruynèl at the Utrecht Conservatory, where he also graduated in organ and improvisation.


Activities

From 1988 to 1990 he lectured in electro-acoustic composition at the Utrecht Conservatory, and from 1990 to 1994 he conducted classes in computer composition at the Department of Musical Technologies at the Utrecht School of the Arts. From 1996 to 1998 he directed NEAR, the Dutch Centre of Electro-acoustic Repertoire, run by the Gaudeamus and Donemus foundations. During his term as director, the institution released such recordings as CD's with the complete works of the pioneers of Dutch electronic music, Jan Boerman and Dick Raaijmakers. He teaches electronic composition at the Rotterdam Conservatory since 1997. In 2003 he was a member of the jury of the first Ton Bruynèl-Prize (international electro-acoustic music competition).


Compositions

His works include compositions combining traditional instruments with tape or live electronics, as well as works only for tape, live electronics, and ballet and theatre music. In 1993 his open air work Zware Metalen for carillon, electric bells and amplified electronic sounds represented the Netherlands in the Prix Italia competition. In 1995 Uijlenhoet built the live electronics installation Wired Life for use by the 'De IJsbreker' hall, which subsequently played uninterruptedly from October 1998 to October 2000 in the music department of the Museum of the City of The Hague. In April 1998, together with the artist Nora Hooijer, he presented the composition De Muis met het Oor, a multi-media live electronics/live painting, based on electronic music theories of the painter Piet Mondrian (exhibited in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam). In 1999 the Rotterdam Music Biennale presented his work Lichtgewicht on four-channel tape. In 2000 he composed Vorst aan de Grond for carillon, electric bells and tape and in 2003 Koraalriff for organ, live electronics and tape.


Prizes

In 1994 the electronic composition Wedge won the first prize at the Bourges Quadrivium Competition (France) and Lichtgewicht reached the final round of the Bourges International Competition in 2000.
