BEA1991 – Beatriz Colette Hanneke de Rijke (she/her, 1991) – is a Dutch-English (or Denglish) ambidextrous songwriter with a background in aerial acrobatics. Her cornerstone lies in making experimental pop music and collage audio-design, while harbouring practises of still life photography, research-based fashion and minimalist film directing. Being a self-taught in all areas of her protean world, Bea’s career is regulated by autodidact processes, satire and contemplative animism. She looks for questions, not for answers.

BEA has composed for other artists like Dev Hynes & Blood Orange, Sega Bodega and Porches, and between 2017~2020 toured with Caroline Polacheck, Robyn, Yves Tumor, Blood Orange and Kirin J Callinan.

Fun brand commissions include Eckhaus Latta, Maisie Wilen, Palais de Tokyo, Thrasher Mag, POP Trading Company, Stone Island, CAFEfx, HBO, Tommy Jeans and WeTransfer.

All BEA1991 music has been self-released under BEA.WORLD.
