About the Company
The Soundtrack Studio is a soundtrack production company ran by the young professional Daan van Keulen.
He has been producing in a variety of genres from an early age. From experimental electronic music, to trance and to soundtracks, he always tried to create musical pieces which carries a certain emotional, mysterious or uplifting feeling.
The key elements of his music are strange, experimental, electronical sounds, combined with sampled piano and orchestral pieces, to create this unique atmosphere you will only hear in his pieces. Slow but intense buildups with the use of subtle changes are recurring elements in his musical pieces.
Music in media has always been one of his main interests. Whether it was the emotional music pieces in adventure and story based games or the suspense based soundtracks of action and thriller movies, it had always grabbed his attention.
Music from many movies, games and series inspired him: The great suspense created by the score of the Bourne movies; the dreamy, slow vibe created by the soundtrack of Drive; the dark, eerie vibe of the soundtrack of Twin Peaks; or the wonderful combination of electronics and guitar in The Last of Us. It has never been unlikely for him to enjoy the soundtrack even more than the game or movie itself.
It inspired him how small musical pieces in media can bring across certain emotions to viewers without them even noticing it. The sometimes subtle way a soundtrack adds such a big value to an entire piece of media, inspired him to create soundtracks himself.
He has a good ear for creating the ideal fitting piece for a piece of media. In his musical pieces you can clearly hear the influence from the soundtracks of movies and games. A slight influence of trance music can also be heard, through the various melodies in the music pieces. Besides this, many influences from other music can be heard in his music, through, for example, orchestral and choir sounds.
Above all, this makes the creation of various different soundtracks possible, driven by the creativity, eagerness and perseverance of this musician.

What clients said...
A fantastic collaboration between Belgium and the Netherlands! Quick responses, clear and friendly! He brought extra power to my promo video. There will definitely be more collaborations in the future! Fantastic work!
I have been making video's for myths for quite a while, and I have always found the sufficient music through sound banks. However, for this video I needed something special and decided to contact The Soundtrack Studio. They replied quickly and delivered the music within a week as well. The music was perfect so I didn't need any revisions. The combination of ominous sounds and orchestration fits perfectly with my video and the melodies pull you into this story right away.
Many thanks Daan and I will come back for future projects.
I'm very satisfied with this result. I am a professional wrestler and it is important in this field to have a personal theme song, someone the audience remembers. I needed something customized, and The Soundtrack Studio created just what I needed! I'm very satisfied with how the combination of the guitar and electronics have worked out. They also replied quickly and made adaptations fast. Great collaboration!
Very quick replies to communication. My music for my animation trailer was also delivered quickly. If you had questions or wanted your music in a different format, he did that without a hassle. Also I am very happy with the result and personally thought the price was reasonable. I look forward to working with him again in the future.
