Composer and Songwriter

Ralston Van Der Schyff on SoundBetter

25 years of live performance experience; I compose, record, perform and produce my own music in Jazz and Modern Classical genres, often blending the two. My songwriting comes from a very personal and poetic perspective. My only "client" thus far, is myself - I hope to change this through collaboration with others.

I compose mainly in the Contemporary Classical genre. I use Jazz harmony as well as unconventional soundscapes extensively, to tell a story. I've been a huge fan of the orchestra since childhood, and I incorporate this in compositions. I produce both the musical score as well as the sound recording performance. One can say, that I specialize in abstract things; it is most evident in my performances. I hope to share with like-minded individuals for their musical projects.
