Composition graduate from the University of British Columbia. Proficient in flute, piano, guitar, production with Ableton Live and Max MSP, and notation with Sibelius.

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 Sibelius very well and can write at a professional level.
I have also studied piano, flute, and guitar at a high level and I have an absolutely gorgeous Heintzman and Co. upright piano at my house. The sound is deep and resonant and responsive and I consider it a magical piano. I also have a Vito boehm flute, a Simon and Patrick Acoustic Guitar, an Ibanez electric, and a Roland RD-300NX Stage piano for non-acoustic keyboard sounds/synthesizers.
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.
