Hi! My name is Simo, guitarist, musician and composer from Finland. I`ve done freelance musician jobs now about 12 years, playing mostly live shows in different kind of groups and i have also two own bands where i compose, play guitar and sing backing vocals. Mostly rock/pop style of music.
About four years ago when i graduated as a guitar teacher i started to feel like that i need to try something new in musicwise and composing rock/pop songs felt so familiar to me so i wanted to challenge myself and wanted to try something totally different. I`ve always been interested in classical music and spesially writing for orchestra. So i opened a blank score and started to collect small musical ideas what came to my head and put those ideas together. And at the same time I studied orchestration and did experiments what different instruments can do or could do in the composition. It took about 4 months when i got my first 3 orhestral composition to done. And now i`ve done almost 11 pieces and all of my orchestral composition projects has been really fun and exiting. And everytime there`s something new to learn.
Here`s couple of my orchestral compositions what i`ve been released on my youtube channel:
Tune for Minor:
I`m happy that i found this forum and my membership get approved. I really looking forward to here what kind of music you guys have done, share my own ideas and in general to get talk with other composers :)
