About Me

About Me and My Music

I am Jan and I compose and create music, normally with the help of at least one or two cats over or, if possible, besides the piano.

My main instrument is the piano and, as a child and during the following years, I took piano lessons at the local music school in our village. But apart from this, I am an autodidact in everything else, like composition, arrangement and production.

When I compose I always begin sitting down at the piano and just play whatever comes to mind. I have always preferred playing by ear instead of reading notes and this helps me very much when I try to find ideas for new compositions.

Over the last years, I have composed and published tracks especially suitable for background music on videos and other media projects. You can find these music tracks here on this website and they are available for licensing on my artist page at Pond5. This music is suitable for a wide range of different media projects, such as TV, Radio, Film, Documentaries, Online videos, Web sites, Corporate presentations and other types of media projects.

At this moment, I am working on new singles to be published soon.
