Anne van de Star


Anne van de Star (NL, 1988, living in Brussels/BE) is a versatile artist specialized in sound design, electronic music composition and performance and sound-installations.

She earned a BA Fine Arts from HKU/Utrecht (HKU) and Middlesex University/London and a MA in Mixed Media from Luca Arts/Ghent. After, she delved into the field of music and sound by self-studies and masterclasses.

She has since created various large sound installations for outdoor spaces, presented audiovisual performances and toured intensively with electro-acoustic set-ups.

She employs both sampling and deconstruction techniques to create her visual and sound compositions, which are presented in exhibitions, concerts, on albums and in screenings.

Together with violinist Hester Bolle, she forms since 2016 the electroacoustic band MONOMONO (Diffused Reality, PssT Mlle). Since 2021, she works closely with choreographers Mette Ingvartsen and recently Cherisch Menzo, and theatermakers Guus Diependaal and Anouk Fried as composer and sound designer.

Her compositions and performative/sound installations have been staged at concert halls, festivals, and radio stations, including S. K (Ghent), Het Entrepot (Bruges), MAS (Antwerp), Recyclart (Brussels), Alba Nova (Alden Biesen), De Studio (Antwerp), Fondation d'entreprise Martell, La Vallée (Brussels), Frans Masereel Center (Kasterlee), De Handelsbeurs (Ghent), STUK showcasing emerging artists (Leuven), Musica's Klankenbos Spring expo (Neerpelt), Grensgeluiden radio station (affiliated with Gonzo Magazine, Netherlands), The Word Radio (Belgium), De Concertzender (Netherlands), and BBC Radio 6 (United Kingdom).
