Toon Plasman

Music composer

Composer and musician Toon Plasman was trained as a classical pianist and has since experimented across musical genres: from jazz to rock and roll and from minimal to classical music. As a performing musician, he has played in a variety of bands and has accompanied many musical theater productions. He started his career as a composer for the theater and made the transition to musical scores for film, documentaries and TV productions.

His style can be characterised as serene music. It has a certain quietness about it. One simple tone is able to evoke emotion, sometimes more than a symphony orchestra, this is his musical philosophy. Through his compositions, Toon hopes to achieve a synthesis between music and image to increase the impact of the story being told.

He has his own Klaverland studio’s in the polders of the Netherlands, where he continues to compose music for countless film and television productions, many of the them in close cooperation with SAP.
