Janice Wong a.k.a. "The Wong Janice" is an Australian-born music producer and classically-trained cellist based in Amsterdam.
She graduated with a Licentiate Diploma in Music of cello performance (L.Mus.A) at age 18 and then went on to chase a career in marketing while playing the cello in bands and as a session musician at night. Her live highlights include performing sold-out concerts with Imogen Heap and Michael Kiwanuka. After 6 years as a Social Media Manager for international sportswear brand Adidas, in 2017 Janice decided to pursue music full-time. She recently graduated with an Advanced Diploma of Music Production and Sound Engineering at Abbey Road Institute in Amsterdam while working as Assistant Audio Engineer at Red Bull Studios Amsterdam. As a freelancer, Janice performs with singer-songwriters, bands & DJs, composes for advertisements/games/films, works as (online) session cellist (for live performances & remote recordings), arranges strings, records string loops/samples and is busy producing her own music for her latest concept: live cello meditation. She creates cello soundtracks for different moods and emotions, using a loop machine to create low drones and sweeping cello melodies on top. Her latest release, titled Cello Music for Meditation is out now on all major digital channels.

Book Live Cello Meditation for your next event…
Besides hosting Live Cello Meditation at home, you can book me for any of the following:
Festivals (mind-body-soul, music)
Ceremonies (cacao, full moon)
Club nights (electronic music parties, ecstatic/improvised dance)
Other conscious events
Yoga (yoga nidra, yin, restorative)
I bring along my cello, a loop machine where the deep low tone drone is recorded and looped on playback, and over the top I will perform and improvise sweeping cello melodies (with a beautiful reverb effect). Performances can last from 10-15 minutes (interlude between acts), 1 hour (meditation class, or savasana concert) or 90 minutes with collaboration, it’s up to you! To fully immerse yourself and get lost in the music, it is important that I can plug into a sound system, or in the case where one is not available, I will bring my own speaker.
Listen below for an example of a 10-minute live set, recorded live at Ecstatic Dance Odessa Amsterdam.
