Christiaan de Jong (Rotterdam, 1960), is an allround musician with experience in playing all kinds of music, from authentique barroque to tango, from flamenco to contemporary composed and improvised music and jazz.
He composed music for one instrument solo with or without electronics, up to chambermusic, orchestral works and music for big band, dance projects and theatre or his own "animated scores".
He composed for: Trio Sekwenza, Ensemble Barcelona Nova Musica, Christiaan de Jong Ensemble, Duo Daniel Ahlert & Birgit Schwab, Grupo Circulo, Banda Municipal de Barcelona, Duo Matthijs Koene & Stefan Gerritsen, Duo Wiek Hijmans & Anna McMichael, Orkest De Volharding, Barcelona Percussion Group, Harry Sparnaay, Marcel Worms, Sound of Colors Ensemble +Beatrice Voellmy, Ensemble BB, Kaida, Ensamble Rosario Ralph van Raat and Ensemble Areté.

As a fluteplayer Christiaan de Jong uses the Eva Kingma system 1/4 tone flute which permits him to play easily microtonal tone music, used in so many "etnic" music cultures, jazz and contemporary western composed music. He plays the barroque tranverse flute both in barroque and contemporary music.
De Jong plays the electric guitar in both jazz and chambermusic settings. The electric guitar can have an almost classical sound but extend to the most extreme heavy metal sounds quitte easily.
He likes to mix improvisational elements and very defined composed parts and often uses electronic backgrounds as well.
He performed concerts playing mainly his own music and improvisation with Markus Stockhausen and Tara Bouman, Jorrit Dijkstra, Riccardo Massari, Michael Benedik, Michael Svoboda, Luc Houtkamp, Frances Marie Uitti, Wiek Hijmans, Corrado Canonici, J. Mª Balanyà, Ananda Sukarlan, Robert Dick, Harry Sparnaay and many other fine musicians...
He conducted many professional and youth orquestras, involving written music and improvisation.
He founded various ensembles like Trio Sekwenza, Ensemble Barcelona Nova Musica, Christiaan de Jong Ensemble, Intelligent Sound Ensembe and recently Globus Ensemble
He played as a electric guitar soloist with the Banda Municipal de Barcelona, the Dutch group "Insomnio", the Madrid group "Circulo".
