PERSONAL BIOGRAPHY Award Winning Composer Siddhartha Barnhoorn got into music when he was 17 years old. His first instrument was an old electric guitar. He learned to play it himself by playing along with the music of bands like Camel, Pink Floyd and Blind Guardian. After a year he started composing his own music using the guitar as his main instrument. In the first few years the main styles he composed in were rock and metal mixed with orchestral elements. He took a great interest in working with samples. With these samples he could create the sound of an orchestra. His main influences came from bands like Camel, Pink Floyd, Blind Guardian but also filmcomposers like John Williams, James Horner, Jerry Goldsmith and more.
Having worked with samples for a while, Sid composed his first concert piece in 2003: "Space Suite - The Undiscovered Journey". This was his first big epic orchestral piece which had a film music feel to it. After hearing a lot of comments about his music sounding like film and game music, he started thinking about actually composing for film. A friend of his got him into contact with an animator and gave him the idea to study music in Hilversum.
In 2004 Sid started his studies of Composition in Context, at the Utrecht School of the Arts, Faculty of Art, Media & Design in Hilversum. In August 2008 Sid graduates with the title, Master of Arts.
Sid took a great interest in ethnic music, especially traditional Japanese music. Through this music he decided to learn the shakuhachi, the Japanese bamboo flute. Aside from the shakuhachi, Sid also took interest in various other instruments like the Armenian Duduk, the bouzouki (8-string lute), Turkish Ney and Soprano Sax to name a few. In the years since 2004 that Sid has been scoring for films he has composed music for over 60 films (shorts and features). Aside from films he also composes music for smaller projects like commercials. One of the most famous and awarded commercials he has worked on is "Embrace Life - always wear your seatbelt".
