Since the age of fifteen Rochus is active as a performing musician, composer and producer of contemporary music, playing in different bands and participating in many recordings. In the nineties he used to work as a professional musician and to produce film music and corporate videos. These days the focus has shifted back to musical applications of machine learning algorithms.

Rochus has started to compose and play instruments when he was a child. Between 1975 and 1988 he received musical education in piano performance, improvisation and composition with Melchior Ulrich, Benno Ammann (who was his great-uncle and also a known Swiss composer), John Wolf Brennan and Christoph Stiefel. He did many concerts and recordings together with his friends Beat Föllmi and Carlo Gamma.
