Rogier Hornman (1994) is a cellist, composer and creator of intermedial music experiences. His works are alive and honest, and search for the lightness in our existence. Rogier’s work contain the excitement of circus, the stylistic virtuosity of Frank Zappa and the mindfulness of John Cage.

As an improvising and teaching cellist, Rogier looks for the boundaries of the instrument, breaks those and fuses all styles to their common factor: sound. For his merging work as principal cellist in the Jong Metropole (conducted by Jules Buckley and Martin Fondse) Rogier won the Outstanding Talent Award, awarded by the Keep an Eye Foundation.

As well as a cellist and as a creator, Rogier inspires others to discover their own talent and to lift their talent to an even higher level. He taught at the Utrecht Conservatory, University of the Arts Utrecht (HKU), mostly affiliated to the bachelor Musician 3.0

Recently Rogier graduated from the master Contemporary Theatre, Dance and Dramaturgy at Utrecht University, where he studied the profound role of music in contemporary theatre and the concept of musical intermedialty in higher arts education. The latter resulted in a compact e-book called Teaching Music in Theatre

The experience is key. Keep balancing.
