Budha Building is Hans Timmermans way of developing music that, in the past 25 years, has grown out to be so much more than just live performing. Although performing is a passion, the ambient ethno and mainly electronical sound that Budha Building stands for, grew in depth, making it an autonomic feature in films, danceperformances, presentations, tv and documentaries, cartoons and openings.
Hans Timmermans creates downtempo, ambient and ethno music. He started live performing as Budha Building at his 18th. From that time on he played national and international stages giving Budha Building its current ambient ethno status.
His cinematic musicstyle has a very broad range which is proven by the many different projects his music is used for. Focus is to enhance the sphere of the project. The main characteristics of Budha Building are that the music is purely instrumental, easy to listen to, relaxing in that way, but when used live, aimed to move the crowd.
Live performances are unique in that way, that the whole set always is sequenced and arranged live. By performing together with guest musicians, Budha Building explores new boundaries within his own music. This approach creates an energy that every time results in a creative interaction between musicians and audience. To attract more attention to his motion picture kind of music, Hans Timmermans also visualises his music by using VJ techniques.
The most important projects in the past months have been, amongst others, the closing performance for 'Tilburg 200 jaar'. The city Tilburg celebrated their 200 year anniversary and decided tot end the festivities with live music performed on a stage on the water in the city centre. Budha Building also composed the music for the start of the building of 'De Rotterdam', a vertical city in the city of Rotterdam, created the music for dancetheater production 'Exit', made by Roundcorner dance company and wrote the music for Roomour dance performance from Factorium Tilburg. Live performances and albums were also made with Eric van der Westens Quadrant Extended.
Internationally Hans Timmermans has taken an other approach to get his music the attention it deserves. Through a publishing deal with the New York Publisher PUMP, more than 16 compositions of his solo performance of Budha Building where used by American Television channels. For example, Budha Building was used during MTV The Cribs, several VH1 music documentaries , America's Next Topmodel, Making of the Band and the year-overview of Scifi channel.
