As a graduated composer and performer, specialized in sound design, he produces his own minimal/techno, sound design and beats. He has developed several software and hardware solutions for musicians, including for his own live act as Jozak Sander.

His vision is that a performer should be able to control his 'Instrument' in an intuitive way – with minimized dependence on knobs and faders in order to transcend to true sensual expression. Although he is specialized in live performance, DJ-ing and the use of external controllers, Sjoerd teaches all aspects of Ableton Live, including Max for Live. He provides private lessons and group sessions for both the beginner and the advanced Ableton Live user. Creativity and developing ones own workflow are the keywords in his sessions. Courses are taught in German, English or Dutch.
