Launchable Socks Audio
My name is Joost, but when I make music, I usually go by the moniker Launchable Socks.
Mostly because I want the music, not the person, to take center stage, but also because I kinda just
like the name.
As a musician I tend to create tracks that reflect childlike, yet serious characteristics, because I
know being a kid can be serious business. I have always taken play very seriously,
both when I was younger as well as later in life. Because play is make-believe,
and I think that make-believe is a very important part of our daily lives.
Whether it's on the playground, in fields like science or engineering, or in videogames or film,
our capacity for make-believe shapes the world around us in a very real way.
Music and sound can play a very big role in that fantastical process, a role which I have
been fascinated with since I was first swept away in the make-believe of video games,
and which I have come to appreciate and respect more and more as I started to work on
music and sound in games as well as animation and film.
On this site you can find a selection of my work as a sound designer and composer.
All music and sound is done by me unless stated otherwise.
I've worked with/for (among others):
