Mindful Music

Original Crossover music by Dutch violinist / composer Xander Nichting

I am happy to present my new video “Coming Home”

After our journey, we are finally coming home.
This is not merely a physical return, it is not merely a destination.
I see it as a culmination of experiences, which we celebrate with our true selves and with our loved ones.

Coming home brings us back to comfort, to peace in our hearts after an evolving journey.

Welcome home, dear traveler, to the embrace of love and growth!

A very special thanks to Ilse Vromans, playing the piccolo.
Always such a joy to get to work with such extraordinary talent.

A very special thanks to André Orsel on guitar, incredible performance!
Unfortunately he could not make it on the video.

Thanks to the Jan Niklaas Stichting, Het Mierennest, for the use of there grand piano.
Thanks to luthier Frank, Pro-Arte in Antwerp. for the use of your beautiful instruments.

Recorded at AMN Music Studio, mixed and mastered at Pro Music Studio, Eemnes (NL)

Out Of The Blue

Out Of The Blue


Pentru Tine



What’s New?

Take a peek behind the scenes of a hard working violinist. (What a great job I am allowed to do!).


This will be one of the songs on the second album.
This was also written in my study period and would be the first song ever played on an electric violin at a final exam on a Dutch conservatory.
I am quite proud to have pionered as a pop/jazz violinist on a conservatory, many have followed this direction afterwards.
Let me know what you think, I am always curious for your opinion.

Meditation, music for the soul

Meditation is a very special song to me.
I wrote this for a yoga/meditation teacher to use in class.
The Jensen violin sound is so perfect for this style of music, it blends well with the pad-layers in the track.
I would have placed it on the first album, but I didn’t feel it was finished yet.
This was a typical song that would cross my grid from time to time, tweaking and adding, I am totally happy and proud to say it is finally finished and good to go on the 2nd album.

Recording “Seven” for the 2nd album!

I am so exited that the 2nd album is finally on the way.
This is a fragment of “Seven”, which I wrote during my conservatory studies.
“Seven” is quite a “Rocky” feel with Romanian Folklore influences.
The 7/16th time signature is from a typical Romanian style.
Have a listen to the track on the left (or above on mobiles).
I hope you like it, can’t wait to record the (final) violin on it.
Special feature: André Orsel E-Guitar; Ilse Vromans Flute. (Not yet on this recording).
