I am born and raised in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
41 years old.
I love writing and producing music in any style I can master.
Studied guitar and producing at the Royal conservatory in The Hague.
With the cue's and soundtracks I write, I focus on Tv, Commercials, Games, Movies, and other media.
I study producing and songwriting every day, to get my productions still at a higher level.
Since 2012 I am slowly earning my place in the music media
Did you hear a production you like, but need it to be changed
to fit your needs? Le me know and we can discuss it.
I am living with my Girlfriend Near Amsterdam, and we have a beautiful daughter (21 jan 2012)
Working hard on some new productions:
Styles: Dance, Percussive (epic) and singer songwriter
At an early age I had already become interested in music. However, I only started playing guitar at the age of 16.
After playing on my own for a year, I decided it was time for a proper music education and therefore attended a local music school.
When introducing myself to my new teacher I said: "Hi, my name is Floris and I want to attend the conservatory."
After 3 years of studying guitar and finishing high school, I extendend my study with an additional 2 years. After that went to Amsterdam to study at a private jazz institute.
At the age of 24, persistant as I am, I was able to enroll into the conservatory in The Hague. Here I studied guitar and producing for 5 years.
I started songwriting at the age of 17 while playing in a rock (trio) band. Just for fun.
During my studies at the conservatory I started developing my songwriting skills. It was only after graduating I really gave it my full attention.
Now I'm focused on media music: film, tv, advertisement, games,ringtones etc.
Rock, funk, soul, blues, soundtracks, pop, electronic or a combination of all these. I like to write music in any style I can master!
Next to composing I am a part time guitar teacher (2 full days a week consisting 30 pupils)
I am inspired by the following:
Iron Maiden, Metallica, Ac/Dc, Anthrax, Pearl jam, Toto, Avenged Sevenfold, Seether etc.
Phil Collins, Toto, Genesis, Paul Young, Counting Crows.
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Scott Henderson, Blues Brothers
To many to mention...
Hans Zimmer, Alan Menken, Steve Jablonsky, any movie soundtrack I like
By taking guitar lessons I come into contact with many artists, young & old, former & new.
