Room Service Music makes music. We, Arjan and Bas, care about great music. Room Service Music is where musicians, artists, film makers and creators can find new ways for their music. Whatever the medium is, we want to get the music just right.
I am mainly a composer and arranger. I’ve written music for ensembles, short films, animation films, commercials an art installation and documentary. To get the most out of my music, the human element is an important part of it. Music has to live, breathe.
My main influences are pop music (major influences are the work of Radiohead as well as the solo work of Jonny Greenwood), contemporary classical music (from Pärt to Ligeti, from Ravel to Schnittke), classical and film music.
I studied at the Utrecht School of Arts, where I received a Master of Music, European Media Master and a Bachelor of Music with honours in composition.

I am a composer and producer writing music for film, pop artists and ensembles. Music is about good chemistry. You get good chemistry by utilizing a mixture of experiment, expertise and a lot of intuition. I like to let things go just a bit out of control to discover new stuff and use that in a skilled way.
Good chemistry is also about the right combinations. I like combining ideas from (modern) classical and pop music. Imagine using a tone scale from a modern classical piece for a film score. Or why not use the beautiful emotions of classical instruments and use it in a singer/songwriter song?
I have a Master of Music, European Media Master of Arts, Bachelor of Music with honours at the Utrecht School of the Arts.
