Guy Van Nueten has built up a solid reputation of late as a composer and pianist and this, across a wide variety of styles.
His arrangements can be heard on a number of gold records by such rock legends as dEUS, Admiral Freebee and Daan. He has also written orchestrations for the Royal Flemish Philharmonic Orchestra. Two of his songs feature in magazine Knack’s “Top 100 Belgian Songs of All Time.”
He has composed music for several theatre and dance productions and motion pictures. His musical, ‘Soepkinders’ (2005) received a musical award and has been translated into French and English. The film ‘Eva reste au placard...’ (2006) by director Alex Stockman won awards at the film festivals of Venice and Evora.
The double CD ‘Tom Barman and Guy Van Nueten Live’ (together with dEUS lead singer Tom Barman) for which he wrote and recorded piano works was released throughout Europe and made the top-10 best CD lists of several magazines for 2003.
The collaboration with LesBalletsCdelaB (theatre/dance company) lead to the CD ‘bâche’ in 2005. Here, Van Nueten combines his love of baroque music with influences from rock, folk and electronic music. This CD was declared a ‘masterpiece’ by the magazine Oor. His style is characterized by a distinctive lyricism, a drive for simplicity, pop, renaissance and baroque influences, the use of phasing and a creative use of electronics.
