Disconnectica replied to Jan-Frederik Carl's discussion Whirlwind

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I am a (relativley fresh) hobby composer and work on contempary music as well as pop songs, mostly for piano.

Although I have been interested in composition for a very long time, only recently I decided to really go for it and to finally subordinate my other big love, literature, to it ;)

I am regularly practicing the piano and have taken violin lessons as well as attending a choir for several years.

Please also take a look at my youtube channel:
