Composer Joey Roukens aspires to communicate in a musical language linked to today’s world and culture. Since graduating in 2005, he has developed into one of the most prominent composers of his generation.

His work is instantly appealing, mostly tonal, whimsical, rich in contrast and eclectic. Likewise he embraces "the tradition" of popular music, resulting in vibrant, colorful works and bringing various style elements together in a natural way.

His music has chameleonic qualities and is suitable for very diverse commissions, including the field of applied music. This is evident in his music, ranging from large works for choir and orchestra to string quartets, a children's opera, tunes and jingles.
