Pipe organist and composer in master's program at the Université de Montréal. Proficient in flute, piano, guitar, production and composition.
I can help you achieve your vision whatever that may be. I always view art as a collaborative effort and I will try my best to listen to and accommodate your needs.
As a producer I am able to take a track from it's embryonic stages into a fully fledged organism. I've been making elecroacoustic music for years and between my knowledge of Ableton Live, Max MSP, and my multi-instrumental skills, not much isn't possible.
As for composition, I have written pieces for full symphony orchestra; harp, vibraphone, cello and flute quartet; as well as vocal quartet, and violin and piano among others. I know Musescore very well and can weave traditional and modern elements.
I am currently pipe organist at l'Église Saint-Édouard here in Montréal and have access to a gorgeous 1913 Casavant Frères organ as well as a Willis grand piano. I also play flute and guitar. I have a Yamaha flute, a Simon and Patrick Acoustic Guitar, and a Roland RD-300NX Stage piano for non-acoustic keyboard sounds/synthesizers.
I decided to showcase an orchestral work on this page but please check out my Bandcamp page for a more diverse collection of my work: https://kjel.bandcamp.com. Reach out and I can send you some not yet released work!
Contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you.

I have worked with Kjel several times and it’s always a pleasure. I really love his style, he plays with such feeling. I couldn’t be happier with the results!
I had the pleasure of working with Kjel for a second time. He delivered gorgeous piano tracks! He even gave me some very tasteful improv options. I love it! I'd love to work with Kjel again in the future.
Kjel is an excellent piano player (I love the sound of his piano as well)! He played the parts exactly as I imagined; a lot of feeling in his performance. He was very professional and always kept me up to date on the status.
