Maurice Bom

As a child Maurice Bom, alias “Mouse”, combined his instrumental skills on guitar, bass guitar, drums and keyboards with singing, composition and song writing. He made his first recordings with two ghettoblasters. At a young age he played in three bands with which he made recordings in his homestudio “t Mauritshuis” and gained his first production experiences.

He studied Muziekregistratie (now called Art of Sound) and Composition at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, and improved his skills in the producers profession. He worked as a live engineer for The Hague-based power trio Easy Meat, with whom he later produced a CD. With his own band Tuesday Child, he recorded in Frans Hagenaars' studio for Sony Music Entertainment in 1997 and made the album “Universal Playground” (mix in Galaxy Studio’s and mastering in Abbey Road) which was received to great critical acclaim.

In 1998 the band played at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. The band then split up unexpectedly, after which Mouse continued as producer for many Hague based bands such a Gruppo Sportivo, The Wishing Well and later The Polar Exploration Ship. Together with composer Fons Merkies he made the film music for De Nieuwe Moeder by Paula van der Oest. In 2003 he brought out the second Tuesday Child album, called “Vital Signs” (in essence a solo project from his own studio l'Hermitage). After this he specialised in producing for singer/songwriters, including Keith Caputo and Femke Japing. Since 1997 Mouse teaches at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, and since 2004 also at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
