Aura Composition


The 22 year old Dutch composer Aura Bouw, is best known for her interdisciplinary shows and her imaginative way of storytelling. 

When composing her music, she first creates the story she wants to tell. 
Stories that are confronting and full of compassion and connection.
Story is key and breaks through any borders that music-genres create.
This is why her music is best to be described as crossover. 


Aura: "Music to me, is about connecting. 
Connecting with the audience, the audience connecting with the story it tells and with one another. 

I'm schooled in classical music, but am testing every boundary of music-genres. 
My music mostly exists of pre-recorded/electronic music and live-music". 


She is fascinated by the impact music and image has on thought, feeling and imagination. This why Aura often works with filmmakers, visual artists, dancers and musicians that inspire her.
The presentation is key and in Aura's interdisciplinary projects, she is always thinking about new, better ways to tell the story. 

"These shows are all about connection".


Aura: "I always work with a clear story that I want to tell. 
My projects contain multiple art-disciplines, audiovisual technologies, electronic and live-music. It all connects through story".

"I hear and feel a 'heart' in Aura's work... An individuality, something living... a lot of emotion. I find that to be very valuable."
