Biografie

Steven Henry is an Eindhoven based bass clarinetist and composer. He studied clarinet at the Fontys Conservatory in Tilburg and specialised on bass clarinet with Henri Bok. At the Eindhoven University of Technology Steven Henry graduated in the field of physics. Although classically trained, Steven Henry enjoys exploring many musical worlds and technological possibilities; such influences can be heard in his compositions and performances, which often transcend genre definition.

As a performer he sometimes performs as a bass clarinet soloist (with or without sensors and elektronics), but mostly with various musicians and ensembles, including singer/songwriter duo Meander and Rodinia (trio).

As a composer he made his first success with "Wals van Fantasie", a composition for concert band, which has been performed in various countries. In May 2016, one of his compositions, "Binary Digits",  a work for wind ensemble and percussion, was well received by musicians, press and public. In addition to compositions for large ensembles, Steven Henry also composes works for smaller ensembles and short films, like "Ton Smits in Motion" and the animation serie "Verborgen Verhalen", on display in various museums in Brabant (NL).

Since October 2020 Steven Henry is the artistic director of the MuST foundation. MuST, founded by Steven Henry himself, organises and supports project in the fields of music, science and technology.

At Microlab on Strijp-S, Eindhoven (NL) Steven Henry has his own studio. This is the place where he rehearses, works on his new compositions, makes recordings and where he teaches (bass) clarinet. He is an ambassador for the Henri Selmer Paris (bass) clarinets.
