about

surasshu is a composer, electronic music producer, and sound designer from the Netherlands, specializing in chiptune music with a touch of sci-fi and horror.

As a kid, he was fascinated by video games and their peculiar music. At age 12, a friend gave him a tracker on a floppy disk, and jump-started his interest in composing.


surasshu then became an active part of the digital fusion community, and practiced his technical skills by competing in OHCs (one-hour compos). He later went to college at Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht, where he studied composition for media, and received his Master's degree in music.

He is most known for his work with the band aivi & surasshu, who composed music for the award-winning TV series Steven Universe. The duo's productions for Rebecca Sugar's vocal songs have garnered critical acclaim, and Steven Universe Vol. 1 charted on Billboard as #1 in independent soundtracks. 

surasshu has enjoyed working on a variety of projects, from indie games, to movie tie-in games on Nintendo handheld consoles, to touhou albums. He prides himself in his musical versatility, and delivering high quality music on time.

When he's not composing, surasshu enjoys birdwatching, cooking, and board games. He currently lives in California with his partner aivi, their baby boy, and two cats.
