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 grew up surrounded by music. My mum would play piano (especially Beethoven) and my dad liked to borrow classical CDs from the library (such as Chopin and Ravel), which I loved to play on the sound system. I got into playing piano around 7 or 8, and immediately started making up my own short songs, including one which was about space-travel (possibly inspired by seeing 2001: A Space Odyssey). Other things in life got in the way of composing for a long time (such as work) but now at the somewhat-tender age of 27, I'm rekindling my love of composing, inspired by my intense love of orchestral music, particularly the works of the master-orchestrator Maurice Ravel, and the mystical symphonic genius Anton Bruckner. I have so far recorded 3 short fragments of music, which were floating in my mind for a long time. I plan to include these in my first symphony, which I'm at very early stages of. I hope that writing this symphony will teach me something about music and composition. I'm looking forward to conversing with other composers online, hearing about their experiences, and learning from them, as well as offering my own observations. Thanks for reading. :)
