Felix Faassen

Bio

Felix’s career started early at the age of five when his father began teaching him to play piano. After buying his first home computer (Commodore 64), Felix realized computers could be used to make music. In stead of being confined to classical sheet music his passion for improvising and composing music with computers was born.
In the early 90’s throughout high school and poly technical school Felix experimented with audio technology, computer music and synthesizers. Inspired by classical and jazz music he practiced composing music across different genres ranging from funky electronic chip tunes to epic orchestral soundtracks. Being inspired by composers like Vangelis, Luc Besson and Hans Zimmer he released his first new age synthesizer album which also led to his first paid video game gig for an unreleased arcade platform game.
After graduating Technical Computer Science Felix decided to pursue his other passion, software engineering. During this time Felix kept composing music but focused more on performing live music and study jazz music. While playing Hammond organ in a funk/soul band “The Rare Groove Orchestra” he composed and recorded three CD’s. He toured in the Netherlands, Switzerland, France and Mexico.
During this time Felix also worked for a number software companies. After leaving TomTom in 2010 he co founded two software companies; The QuestionMark and Simacan. Fast forward eight years, Felix decided to stop working in software development and reconnect with his life long passion: composing music for video games and interactive media.
Felix is currently enrolled in a Game Audio Design and Production program at Berklee College of Music where he is hard at work creating an up-to-date audio portfolio. Furthermore he is working on an album with a new Jazz/Fusion/Electro band called TRAQ where he plays keys.
