Bart Van Lierde (Gent) has been a professional musician for over 20 years. He plays / has played bass, double bass and keys in some major Belgian bands and has performed on many stages in the Benelux, Europe, Canada and the US. For the last few years, he has also been composing music for film and video. He is the regular composer for director Domien Huyghe; after several short films, Bart also made the score and source music for Huyghe's first feature film, ZEEVONK, which will be released in cinemas at the beginning of 2023.

Bart sees similarities between the role of a composer and that of a bass player in a band: "I have a creative role but I always work in function of the bigger picture. It is my job to place my own accents allowing others to 'shine'."
