What have you composed for? Or what medium do you work around?
What is your favorite genre or style of music?
progressive rock
Is music your main income source?
No - Not at all.
Where do you live?
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 would rather be a part of something great than all of something mediocre. I currently work with Sonar X1 Studio.


Most of the songs I have posted here have lyrics. I haven't figured out how to associate them with the songs here yet. Some of the lyrics are so-so while some, like "Northern Lights", are half the song. On my soundclick music page, lyrics are posted with the songs under full song info.

No such thing

Posted on April 7, 2009 at 11:00am 1 Comment

I've been listening to as many compositions as I can - this way I associate members with a "theme song" when I see their picture. In hearing the diversity of music - and realizing the environment each piece is suited to, I've come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as "bad" music - only music I don't understand.

Hey Marv! I agree with Darel. You're making the hardware and software work for your expression. Please keep the music flowing. It's something that I need to do myself, as I've been away from the forum for a long time as well.

Your tools are starting to work for you. I'm glad you're in a music mode. It can only be good for all.

I've been away from the forum for some time now. I sliced my left hand open, which required 18 stitches, but left no permanent damage. I've been learning how to do things in real time using soft synths in Sonar Home Studio 7XL and Dimension Pro and a dedicated midi keyboard. I've worked out my latency issues by using ASIO drivers and will post some new stuff soon.

Hi Marv, thanks for taking to time to listen and leaving a comment. Appreciated. I'm currently out and about mobile so cannot access the Flash music player to listen to your songs. Will do so at the earliest opportunity though. Thanks again.

Thanks for the comment on my page. I've listened to a few of your tracks now and they come across as being very sincere, which isn't always easy to achieve.

Hi Marv,
Thank you for that wonderful compliment. I really enjoyed your music. Especially Northern Lights. It has somewhat of a Native American undertone. Your songs remind me of the 70's group Little River Band. That was a great decade for music. Keep up the great work.

No, thank you Marv for listening :)

Hey Marv,

Thanks for stopping by to listen to my work. =)

Sounds like you're working with a Sound Blaster Live or Audigy? Simple yet still nice sounding synthesizer whatever it is. Your compositions are actually quite enjoyable to listen to. Welcome aboard!
