Biography

Wilbert Bulsink (1983) writes music for all kind of combinations, from orchestras to soloists. He composes concert music and writes for music theatre. As a performer he is active as a classical piano player, in bands as fSTARand, PumpOrgan and Rosa Ensemble he plays synthesizer and hammond organ.
He received commissions from most renown music ensembles in the Netherlands: ASKO|Schönberg, Nieuw Ensemble, Looptail, Rosa Ensemble and the Nederlands Blazers Ensemble. His works were performed during Gaudeamus Muziekweek, November Music, Holland Festival, the ISCM World Music Days in Ljubljana and the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival.
At a young age Wilbert won prizes for his compositions, amongst others the NOG Jonge Componisten Aanmoedigingsprijs for his orchestral work Ontdekkingen in 1998. From 2001 until 2008 he studied composition at the Conservatory of Amsterdam with Theo Loevendie and Wim Hendrickx. He finished his studies cum laude.
In 2005 he was awarded the Jan van Vlijmenprijs and in 2009 and 2010 his compositions were selected for the BUMA Toonzetters Award. In 2015 he was composer in focus at the November Music Festival in Den Bosch where Quatuor Diotima premiered his first string quartet.
His interest in the possibilities of new music outside the concert hall brought him to work with theatre and film. Together with Thomas Myrmel he created The Expected and Pigeonhouse, both works which depart from the musical domain but extend into film and theatre.
As composer and performer Wilbert is involved in different initiatives and networks for innovative performance practice. He is a member of Monoták, an Amsterdam-based collective of composers and improvisors which organizes concerts and events with challenging combinations and themes. He is part of Splendor Amsterdam, a group of musicians who turned an old bath house into a centre for experimental and classical chamber music. Until 2014 he was board member of the Dutch composers society Componisten '96.
Wilbert teaches composition at the ArtEZ Conservatory in Zwolle.
