warm greetings

I’m Cornelis and I compose music inspired by myths and legends.

My aesthetic is melodic, organic, sometimes “epic” in scope, and at other times walking the line of dark ambient, dungeon synth, and drone music. I’ve heard it said that my music pairs well with long evenings of Dungeons & Dragons and other such tabletop endeavours.  The symphonic forces are my focus and I create many of the soundscapes you hear with ensembles of acoustic instruments, both from the traditional symphonic orchestra and also from folk traditions found around the world.

If you have a tale to tell and need custom music to enrich the experience, I’d love to work with you. Let’s chat!

private lessons

If you’d like to be able to sit down at the piano and improvise freely, study and master music theory, learn how to write and produce a full song, or compose and orchestrate a symphony, I’d love to help you achieve your goals! My name is Cornelis and I teach private, 1-on-1 lessons in person at your home (in Houten & Utrecht) , at my home studio in Houten, and online. All ages and all levels are welcome – even complete beginners with no prior experience.
