Resonate Productions is a Dutch cultural foundation (stichting). Its aim is to create, perform and promote all outings of 'musical journalism': the combination of original journalism with any kinds of music. Musical journalism takes shape as documentary-concerts, podcasts, film, workshops or a mix of these forms.

All people working for Resonate are freelancers, who get payed according to the CAO Toneel and Dance, re-calculated to an hourly tariff for freelancers (CAO-wage / 143,3 hours per month (=1720 hrs/year) x 1,5). Musicians get a rehearsal-fee per day and a concert-fee per performance, in line with or higher than the FairPractice-code of the Netherlands and the SENA norm.

was born and raised in Amsterdam and is one of the four partners at NAHV Tax Advisors: a no-nonsense, accesible firm with a focus on creative enterpreneurs. His portfolio consists of companies in many different entities: from small business owners to big cooperations, from artists to yoga teachers.


Melvin is specialised in (international) income tax and VAT, especiallly concerning the situation for artists and independent professionals."I have always felt at ease in my contact with the clients," he says.

"Every enterpreneur has a story and a passion. I love to see how people can loose themselves in what they do. Bookkeeping will always remain the base of every entreprise and has to be taken care of in a professional way. I offer administrative and fiscal guidance and find it important to involve my clients in this process, so that they feel in control and supported at the same time.

When does a company succeed? I would say: when you are happy with who you are and what you do. Follow your heart and work from your passion, then the rest will follow naturally."
