A classically trained cellist driven by his passion for music composition and production.
As a young cellist, Bassel's connection with classical music planted the seeds needed for him to evolve in composition and production.
He grew up in Damascus, Syria, where he studied the cello and began playing in orchestras and chamber music ensembles at an early age.
After the start of the war, he moved to Brussels where he embarked on a new chapter in his musical journey. It was in Brussels that he began his career as a music producer and a composer.
Driven by his passion for the craft, he soon thereafter started working with prominent composers and engineers within the industry, including notable names such as Michelino Bisceglia, Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie and the pioneers of Neoclassical and ambient music A Winged Victory For The Sullen.
He’s own works vary from compositions for chamber music ensembles, electronic music, post-rock, neoclassical to ambient music. All written and focused to be implemented into films, theatre and contemporary dance.
