Jim Zweerts is a sound artist and electronic music producer based in The Netherlands. He creates immersive soundscapes and montage music, but also collaborates with professionals from a wide range of fields, such as dance, theatre, installation art and cinema. His work plays with the symbiosis of contrasting elements and approaches towards sound: algorithmic processes vs minuscule handcraft, associative and club-oriented sounds vs more abstract structures, playfulness vs formalization. Zweerts graduated from the Institute of Sonology at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.
