          Jochem van Tol, 1983.






This website shows a selection of my work from the past fifteen years.
From recent collaborations, exhibitions, performances, and concerts, to early study material.
Feel free to look around, or come back later – the selection will change over time.


~While 2020 and 2021 were two crazy years,
I was lucky to be able to make new music in my roomy studio.
With my dearest friends it became a safe haven to meet and rehearse. Drink coffee and mojitos, while recording new tracks. It all came together in the result of two albums. Both self-titled albums Soon and Silverbones are being pressed on 12” vinyl and will be released beginning 2022.~







Featured Work          


Paper Ensemble








Since 2007 I collaborate with Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti on one of our favorite projects: The Paper Ensemble. 
I developed a series of performances with instruments made of all kinds of different paper.  Many of which I found in rural Japan. Currently I am working on the realisation of a musicfilm of the Paper Ensemble in which the visuals and the composition co-exist.

Silverbones

~Formerly known as Obol Le~
 









“Using synthesizers and live tape manipulation among instruments and vocals, and combined with custom-built algorithmic videoprojections that respond to the music, this is like improvised jazz gone into jet-setting, shape-shifting hyperdrive”

SOON

Liú Mottes & Jochem van Tol
















After months of sketching and different recording sessions in TapeTown Studio in Denmark (great place!) Liú and I finalised our first album SOON.
The collection of songs and sonic adventures investigate and weave together our noises from electric guitars and synthesisers.
Telling little stories reflecting the noises of the world. From ancient times towards the hidden galactic futures. In sound we dream of dinosaurs still walking around. And people travelling to far planets to build a new life.
We are happy to become part of the Subroutine Records family who will release the album in 2022.
