My mission in
the musical world is to mirror a universe and give a visionary glimpse
to a place where I myself and my children would want to live. A
sanctuary place where the listener can immerse his imagination and turn
towards an internal panorama where it's good to exist or to burst us to
even better levels of the future. I'm much interested in social and
Major releases I've composed and produced are:
2008- : Various game soundtracks, major part classically orchestrated (Link)
June/2014: Freedom Utopia
November/2014: Music for the Wired Generation
I've started my musical career in 2008 composing
mainly symphonic/orchestral music for games, and as a composer slowly
started directing myself towards instrumental ambient and electronic
music for everyday listening. Focusing on instrumental music, melody,
moods and musical story building you should expect me to tell stories,
strongly theme based and most of the time easy to adapt your imagination
to and immerse.
After a longer period of orchestral composition
from 2008 to 2011, I've started to refocus myself on music that let's
you relax, boost yourself, travel with it, go on with work or to ease
your everyday chores while you put it on the speakers. Since 2011 main
focus is on producing those tracks. Especially focusing on incorporating
sci-fi/fantasy/new age/utopia music and theme elements into the weave
of my pop-rock, chill and fusion tracks.
All through these times
I've been experimenting with fusioning my favorite elements of music,
that you hopefully might just as well like: electronic music, elements
of rock, ethnical instrumentation, orchestral instrumentation and
classical themes along with sci-fi/fantasy/new age/utopia elements, just
to get the musical stories work like magic and entertain. Please,
