Dutch Musician, Guitarist, Composer & Experimental Artist.

Baz Laarakkers

Baz is a musician/soundartist from The Netherlands. His music starts where Pop music ends and avant-garde music begins.

Baz his music is characterised by dark lonely melodies that flow and twist atop a layer of sonic textures. Combined the melodies and textures grow into monolithic sonic landscapes, sometimes big and bombastic and sometimes small and fragile. The inspiration for his music comes from a myriad of sources, but they all seem to gravitate back to the natural/mythological world and the big processes that are part of the shaping of this natural/mythological world.

In July 2017 Baz graduated as Bachelor of music with the project Hêthan. With the Hêthan project he aimed to explore the natural cycle of birth/life/death/rebirth Resulting in an ambient/experimental live improvisation recorded in the old St Jozef church in Arnhem. The resulting material is currently being mixed and mastered and will see it’s release in the Autumn of 2018.
