Biography Sinta Wullur

1958

Sinta Wullur was born on November 16, 1958 in Bandung, Indonesia. At the age of ten, she moved to The Netherlands.

Musical education
She studied piano at the Sweelinck Conservatory of Music in Amsterdam with Willem Brons. After graduating in 1982, she went to Bali for some months to study gamelan. From 1984 to 1988 she studied composition with Ton de Leeuw in Amsterdam and she attended several International Composers Workshops with the theme "Traditional Music (of non-European type), Folklore, and Contemporary Methods of Composing". In 1988 she continued her composition studies with Theo Loevendie and Louis Andriessen at the Royal Conservatory of Music in The Hague, where she also studied electronic music with Gilius van Bergeijk and Jan Boerman, and graduated in 1991. Since 1990 she has taken Indian style singing lessons, and during a stay in Indonesia in 1992 she also took lessons in Javanese style singing, to obtain experience in the handling of non-western vocal idioms and techniques.


Activities

In 1982, after returning from Bali with instruments and material, Sinta Wullur founded the gamelan ensemble Irama. In 1990 she was invited to take part in the Pacific Composers Conference in Japan. In 1995 she took the initiative to build a chromatic tuned gamelan to combine with western instruments. In that year she founded the Ensemble Multifoon. In 2002 she was selected Toondichteres des Vaderslands (National Woman Composer of The Netherlands).


Compositions

Sinta Wullur first composed for theatre and film in 1980 (for the theatre groups Haagse Comedie, Spiegeltheater and Plots for the Film academy). To date she has composed chamber music and vocal as well as orchestral works. Many of her compositions show Eastern influences: e.g. of gamelan music, but also of Eastern philosophy. Among her compositions are Between dreams and fairy tales (1992) for ensemble and tape, commissioned by the Basho Ensemble, and De wraak van de maan (The moon's revenge, 1992) for narrator and orchestra, composed for the 40th anniversary of the Amstelveen School of Music. At the festival Gamelan Movements & Voice Expeditions the opera The golden deer, based on episodes from the Indian epos Ramyana, was premièred in concert form on November 14, 2003. Trip for synthesizer was written on the occasion of the space journey by the Dutch astronaut André Kuipers on April 19, 2004.
