Esther Venrooy (1974, Rosmalen, The Netherlands) is a composer
working in the field of audio art. After completing studies in classical
saxophone, she attended the European Dance Development Center
in Arnhem as a composer-in-residence where she began employing
electronic and digital techniques in compositions for choreography and
stage performance. Gradually, her music evolved into an independent
means of expression and she continued her work at the IPEM (Institute
for Psycho-acoustics and Electronic Music) in Ghent, Belgium, where
she still resides. Around this time she began utilising film editing
paradigms as a foundation for her compositional methods.

Venrooy has performed her music and presented her installations
worldwide. Her collaborators include visual artists Hans Demeulenaere
and Lieve D’hondt, and musicans Min Xiao-Fen (pipa), Wu Na (guqin)
and Heleen Van Haegenborgh (piano).

Aside from her artistic activities, Venrooy is a lecturer on 20th century
music and experimental arts at the Ghent school of fine arts, where
she also runs the Audio Art workspace.
