Thorltd

Durk Albert Kooistra was born on the sixth of june 1984. Since he can remember he has had a passion for music When Durk turned 13 he got a Djembe from his parents. After that he saw how his brother learned to make music on a old notebook or should I say laptop. Not equipped with a sound-card, his brother was forced to use a printer card to get some form of tones out of the machine. The love for obscure sounds was triggered. Jazz artists like Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Stan Gets, Medeski Martin & Wood, Anyone from the marselis family all inspired Durk in his electronic approach of jazz. In 2006 he had his first gig as Thorltd, 2007 many more gigs, festivals and radio appearences. 2007 was also the year Durk and 2 friends (M. Hoogenboom, N Hylkema)started the independend Art Platform Fant00m.
