Hi there! I am Tseroeja, and I make all kinds of music, ranging from pop to jazzy fusion to experimental to classical in unconventional settings. My main instruments are the viola and the violin.
I studied Music Production and Performance at the HKU and received my Bachelor's degree with honours in 2015. Additionally, I followed courses in the fields of Musicology (at the UvA) and Philosophy (at the VU).
I have played the violin since I was six years old. From age 12 to 18 I was in a talent program set up by Jaap van Zweden at the Conservatory of Enschede.
I am a session musician, and have recorded for artists like David Guetta, Céline Dion, Mr. Probz, Martin Garrix, Ne-Yo, David Garrett, Angelo Boltini, Charlie Puth and the Black Eyed Peas. I record in bigger studios with ensembles as well as solo in home studios.
I have toured with several street orchestras: the Ricciotti ensemble and the Street Orchestra of London. I love doing wicked performances!
I am a member of the Nescio Ensemble and the Olympic Orchestra.
I compose and arrange music for ensembles and for my own project Renana.
I build programs in Max/MSP and work with Sibelius for making sheet music for ensembles.
JUN 27-JUL 3: Nescio Ensemble tour through Wales (viola&performing my composition "Orph" (2018))
