Hello!
I started for the love of music at age 7 when my mother would play the Warsaw Piano Concerto and also Clair de Lune. I was amazed even back then of the sounds it produced and the gorgeous melody.
I started taking lessons at age 8 and then all the way through High School. I never had training in orchestral works, but as I got older, I found myself being requested to play for weddings and church services. I started playing the Church organ for Sunday Mass in the 8th Grade. Eventually I was turned onto Christian music and how the piano was used with orchestral accomp. I looked and looked for accomp tapes and music books. They were there, but rare. So I wished I always could just write my own scores. That way, I could play whatever I wanted and have a true orchestra behind me. I found Kork Sequencers, MIDI Keyboards, and the world of electronics. Then I found the awesome power of computers and now how sampled software now works with them. I used East West Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra's, Symphonic Choirs. I have more orchestral sounds from Standard Solos, duets, trios, quartets to full Symphonic masterpieces han can be scored. Back in 1981 I was asked to perform piano accompinament for Elizabeth Ward, Miss America. WOW what an expierience.
I live and Harrisburg, PA and would love to hear from you and your experiences.

The Christmas Story - The Gospel of St Luke

Posted on November 15, 2010 at 6:00am 0 Comments

I was asked to record the reading of St Lukes Gospel, The Christmas Story. So in order to make it interesting, I underscored it to make the narration more dramatic. Oh Come All Ye Faithful starts the piece and then the tenderness of Christmas is born! Please take a listen under my music listings and feel free to write me with any comments and or suggestions!

Thanks for the critic Stephen! its been awhile since Ive heard advice for my music, everyone else around me just seems to be amazed out of there mind because they wouldn't know the bad from the good with orchestral music but it's nice to hear it criticized by a fellow composer! And yes i heard your Christmas orchestrations! i loved them they had a very warm tone to them and the believability of real instruments almost had me fooled also! Sometime when rushed we tend to put together so of our best work!

Hey Stephen thanks for the feed back! I used EWQL Symphonic Orchestra Gold for just about everything but the ethnic percussive elements in the song were different samples of african and middle eastern drums that i found for free that sounded REALLY crappy until i added some effects on them but yeah i do here the DaVinci Code in there! that piece was actually final project in one of my audio production classes

Hi Stephen! Great to be back in touch.

You Hold The Key - beautifully done, I must say. The orchestrations added a great deal of emotion to the voice. She has a wonderful singing voice as well. I will be honest (would you expect any less from me?) and tell you I did not care for the mix. I think the music was a little too quiet and did not blend as well with her voice. It sounded more as if she was in a vocal booth than with the orchestra but the song itself was wonderful. Nice work, especially considering the circumstances. Don't you just love workin gon the fly like that?

Things are great here, thank you. Since we last spoke, I have worked oin a number of films and commercials as well as background music for training films, a video game and even wrote a book called,"Becoming An Indie Film Composer."

What happened with the Regis & Kelly contest? The piece you composed was brilliant!

Hello Stephen,
Thank you for your kind words, its lovely to meet you! I very much enjoyed listening to your music. You have such great diversity. I especially like Gameday 2008 Theme. Well, to answer your questions, I use Logic pro 8 and only Logic sounds at the moment however I had Kontakt 3 delivered on Friday :-) I used to use Sonar with Roland JV2080, Yamaha MU-80 and Alesis. I haven't used live instruments yet, but hope to do so one day.
You are right - there are many very talented composers here and everybody has been welcoming. Its been great!
All the best to you,
Marie-Anne

Stephen,
Tocotta and Fugue in D minor is my favorite Organ piece of all time and I must say that you did it justice. Well done....Ron
