Jaap Blonk

Jaap Blonk (born 1953 in the Netherlands) is a self-taught composer, vocalist,
poet and visual artist. After unfinished studies in mathematics and musicology
he discovered the power and flexibility of his voice, and set out on a long-term
research of phonetics and the possibilities of the human voice.

At present, he has developed into a specialist in the creation and performance of
sound poetry. He performs and gives lectures and workshops worldwide on a
regular basis.

Blonk’s music has appeared on about 50 CDs. Books with his visual poetry
have been published in several countries.
