Ed Starink (born December 17, 1952 / also known as Star Inc.) is a Dutchmarker composer, arranger, session musician and music producer. Since his childhood he has been fascinated by music and taught himself to play lots of instruments.

During his studies he worked for several major studios in the Netherlandsmarker. As a sought-after keyboarder he was e.g. engaged to accompany the Beach Boys on the Hammond organ and also to play keyboard for David Bowie.

Ed Starink graduated from the Academy in 1976 and finally gave his own Academy lectures.

Ed Starink's classical education is quite audible. His debut Cristallin for example was arranged and composed according to classical composing rules, but completely arranged for and played on synthesizers.

But Ed Starink's most famous releases are his cover versions of wellknown but also of rather unknown spectacular synthesizer hits and movie/TV themes. These titles appeared at first on compilations like Synthesizer Spectacular which has been released on his own label Star Inc.

Later at the end of the 80s Ed Starink cooperated with the big Dutch major label Arcade and one of the most successful compilation series Synthesizer Greatest (Synthétiseur – Les plus grands thèmes in Francemarker) conquered mainly the European markets. With millions sold copies this series opened up for innumerable music fans the wide world of electronic music.

Although many Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis fans use to dislike Ed Starink's cover versions , his versions are considered an enrichment and ideally for an extensive introduction to the fascinating world of electronic music . In 1996 he decided to end creating cover versions and moved two years later to Southern France.
