I started playing keyboards when I was four. Then, I quickly became familiar with my dad's hardware sequencers. I could create melodies, and play the guitar and the flute by the age of ten or eleven. I used to watch my dad making music all day long everyday, and that helped me dive into the world of DAWs. I probably created my first song when I was around twelve. I have been studying and working on music ever since. Currently, I work full time as a composer and sound designer for films, TV and games, and occasionally, as a composer, arranger, recordist and mixing/mastering engineer for clients.
Music gives me a way to tell stories. Using sounds and rhythm to create emotions and scenes.
My dream is to work as an independent film score composer.
I would develop countries where basic needs like food, water, electricity and internet are things of luxury. And by saying that, I'm actually talking about eradicating political corruption, which, in my opinion, is the worst enemy for citizens.
There are quite a few, but I think I'll go with Roxette's Queen of Rain.
Roxette, Dire Straits, Deep Purple are among my favorite bands, and Howard Shore and Rupert Gregson Williams are my favorite film score composer.
Stories. I write a story on paper or just inside my head before I even touch the guitar or the keyboard to begin composing. And sometimes, there are stories that I've read in books or seen in movies that inspire me to create a piece of music that tells the key points in that story!
More than a message, I wish to give people the chance to relax and forget about their problems for a while.
Of course that depends on how the audience is responding, haha! But before that, I feel excited and obliged to do the absolute best I could.
Musicians have a difficult time coming to recognition. If a platform could let newcomers showcase their skill and talent fairly to the world, I think that would be the biggest improvement.
I think it's a great place to meet some new people and get feedback on your work.
Not being able to give as much time to music as I should, I guess. I have a bad habit of getting distracte-- oooh, shiny!
I don't really go out much, so I admit I'm not an active support. But I do support local musicians whenever I can. I help people learn software and other techy stuff, whenever they visit or I visit them, for example.
I suppose the ones that I seem not to: being a very good marketer and an advertisement genius.
My dad, I think. :D
