I have been commissioned to write several times and, I love it when I'm given a challenge. Music to me, is like writing words down from dictation. Yes I've written large bombastic scores, but with my love of the baroque period, simple is always best!
Composing, arranging, recording and producing.
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the notes! I do see, feel and touch music and the same is in the reverse too!
I can say humbly and without ego that I'm not your average classical composer. I started my musical training at the age of 8 under my own steam, desperate to know what the musical notes on the page were saying. It was clear from that moment that music was to be my destiny.
I began to compose little tunes in my head and was always being told off for day dreaming. Its funny how I wouldn't tell anyone what I was really doing, as if it was a secret! I continued to compose in my head and, although I had no idea what the written note meant at such a young age, I never forgot a head note. This was the humble beginning to how I compose today, writing each piece and indeed finishing it in my head before I pen it down...
The love in my life and indeed the lack of love in my life has moulded me into the person I am today. I have been let down so many times and, although I pour my heart and soul into a relationship for instance, eventually I am always let down, I do remain optimistic though and so very lonely sometimes!
These days, my mind is so troubled and often. If I can't pen down notes, I can't rest.
I can also find myself in tears for no other apparent reason than my music itself! Such is my life...
I'm passionate about giving back to the music community.
Since the age of 8 years old, I've refined my technique and musicianship while taking it upon myself to perfect the canon of musical literature that all of the masters before me have successfully confronted. The result of my labours is in the listening of my music.
