ABOUT BEREND DUBBE
Berend Dubbe is an award-winning Dutch composer and music producer for TV and film, as well as live performance.
Early in his music career, Dubbe earned a Gold record as the drummer of indie rock band Bettie Serveert (with their album "Palomine" from 1992), with appearances on American late night programming. Shortly thereafter, he became an underdog hero for many home recording artists of the early 2000s, creating and performing his own sample pop/ orchestral pop compositions under the artist name Bauer, leading to collaboration with the multi Grammy-winning Metropole Orchestra ("The Bauer Melody of 2006"), and a Silver Harp Award ("Can't Stop Singing" 2000).
Since 1990, his clients as a freelance musician have included visual artists with whom his work has been featured at modern art museums around the world including Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum, Dutch and Polish filmmakers, and commercial ventures such as major brands (Honda, TopShop, RTL, Philips, Siemens, and more).
Dubbe's work has covered genres ranging from symphonic, to pop, jazz, progressive, and rock, but is perhaps most recognizable for its modern, cinematic, and pastiche qualities, often combining orchestral instrumentation with characteristic elements like vintage synthesizers and jazzy rhythm sections.
Berend Dubbe has been one of the go to voices for commercial television across the Netherlands since 1996.
He has been the station voice of Net 5 since 2001 and is available for voice-over tasks of all shapes and sizes.
Dubbe lives in Amsterdam with his wife and music collaborator Gwen Thomas, their two cats and a room full of records.
He provides his services from his state-of-the-art recording studio, or travels for the work.
