The Library of Things on Spotify


Last Friday, the 29th of November, was the release of my soundtrack for “The Library of Things” on all streaming devices. To my excitement and great surprise, it got selected for the editorial playlist “Classical new releases” on Spotify, causing the number of streams to blow up. Today, December 3rd, we hit 10.000.

At this time in my career, this is absolutely huge and I couldn’t be more excited. My heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who made the score and its release possible. To check the score out, visit

Somewhere in the following week, I’ll make a sketch-to-score video, in which I’ll dive a little deeper in the process of making the soundtrack. From thinking of the first thematic ideas, to what caused me to stick with this theme and how I developed it into a full orchestral score. And on top of that, the scores and a piano reduction will be available soon!

“Submerged” out now!


Over the last couple of months I’ve been in the process of writing my first album for a music library. The lovely people of “Ninja Kitty Music” reached out to me and have given me the opportunity to write an album of orchestral adventure music, which is now available for licensing!

Usually when I listen back to a project I’ve finished, I always feel some sort of anxiety when listening. I might hear some minor mistakes or small things I could’ve done differently. Or it’s just the general feeling you have when your baby is released into the great wide world. However, this the first time I can honestly say this is not the case. When I listen back to this album, I enjoy it and feel like I’ve made something I can be genuinely proud of. And whether it gets licensed 0, 1 or 100 times, I’m still proud of what I’ve created.

I hope you enjoy! Please let me know if you do so. And if you want to know more about how I make such a thing, be sure to follow my Instagram, where I document a snippet of my creative endeavours every day!

The scoring session of things


In May last year, I went to Skopje, Macedonia to record the music for my graduation film “The Library of Things”. A truly unforgettable experience.

We had some video footage shot, which I edited some time ago, and is now up online for you to enjoy! It includes anything from music and film to discussions, Jordy’s phenomenal impression of a trumpet stuck in an oven, me in shorts and even cats (this is the internet of course).

I hope you enjoy!
