"Yeah, that is close to what I would consider my current style. I've tried to cultivate my own sound, but you can hear my influences through it. That piece in particular was influenced by Satie's Gymnopedies series, Tchaikovsky's Valse…"

Hi, my name is Viktharien. I am a composer who currently resides in Texas, USA. I have sort of lost my groove, you could say, in composition. I used to compose all the time and for a living at one point in my life. However, for the last few years I feel like I've been in a funk.

I used to do this for a living: composing, performing on the piano. Not anymore. I'm pathetic, searching for my old self and whatever glory there was back then.

Back then people liked my music. I have since changed my name and gave up my gift I suppose. Was it a gift? Doubtful, but it was gifting to my life.
