We are Arc

We make music and sound design for media

We are 3 composers and 2 sound designers

Our vision is to bridge the boundaries of applied and autonomous composition by making music that can stand its own

Our music and sound design tell a story that you can listen to anytime

A crucial element for achieving that is in our view the tension 'arc'

Discover the effect of our music on screen and get a chance to be in the driver's seat of a composer with A Piece of Arc!

A Piece of Arc

Take control of what you hear on screen

A Piece of Arc

Everything you hear in a movie usually consists of layers. Layers within the music, as well as the sound design. With this tool we want to give you a chance to be in the driver's seat of a composer and discover the effect of those different layers.

We provided 3 projects we've worked on ourselves with those different layers. All these projects can also be found on this page. Give it a go and let us know what you think!

Upcoming Projects

This is a selection of the many great projects that we're working on right now


A beautiful 3D animation about a dystopian cyborg western world. A lone hunter discovers the impact of his actions when he hunts down and kills a bison.

The video shows artwork and storyboards of the film alongside one of our demos as a reference for the general mood of the film.


A controversial film about a man who can't deny his sexual orientation. Can he share his secret and be accepted for who he is? Or will he be judged for something he never did?

A experimental documentary that explores and portrays the relationship between humans and nature. Nature may seem like a constant given, but even our smallest actions can impact our surroundings. 

"De Subliemen"

Visiting the sea leads to experiencing 'the Sublime' : the pleasant eeriness, a feeling of insignificance. 

"Find Yourself A Faith"

A documentary about the 'church of the 21st century' ; the quiet room ('stilteruimte') and the people that visit them. In a time where religion is often seen as something of the past, is this a new way to find meaning in life? What does that say about us as people and our needs? 

"Ik Wilde Nog Even Mijn Moeder Bellen"

A documentary where the maker, who lost her mother, goes searching for her father in Zimbabwe. A HKU / MediaMonks production.


(working title)

An animation about childhood and the memories that come with it. The film will be filled with monologue from a diverse group of people talking about their childhood. This monologue will be supported by Frederieke's nostalgic and colourful animations. The video shows some of these animations.
