Renzo van Steenbergen, nomad, born in The Netherlands, with degrees in Sound and Image and ArtScience, immigrated to Tallinn at the age of 31 after living and working in The Hague as an autonomous allround artist working in the fields of installation art, music and composition, film, live-cinema and contemporary dance and theatre since 2001.
Since then, he has composed music and made sound designs for various theatre productions and directors in Estonia as well as working as a theatre maker himself and of course making music just for the sake of making music in his home studio and in the train.
His work is concerned with issues of energy, density, complexity, movement, simultaneity and violent beauty, and he often works extensively with space as a primary compositional parameter. He thinks that music does not exist in time but rather creates it, and considers that music is not the art of sound but rather the art of the transcendence of sound.

Since 2001 he has performed and shown his work at various international venues and festivals such as ;
Machinista Festival (Glasgow)
Garage Festival (Stralsund)
Locall Festival (Athens)
Kanuti Gildi SAAL (Tallinn)
State-X/New Forms (The Hague)

Von Krahli Theatre (Tallinn)
The Estonia (Tallinn)

Renzo studied Artscience at the Interfaculty of Art Science and Image & Sound at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, where he finished with a Bachelorís degree.
