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.

Much of it is in an anachronistically renaissance style. Apart from formally composed music I record lots of half or completely electronic music, often using real instruments in the mix.
