I'm Carlo, 28, from London. This is my first time posting here. I'd like to share a small selection of my work with you all.
I work with absolutely zero classical training, nor knowledge of musical theory.
I compose my work using a two octave midi keyboard and a daw called Reason 3.
When you listen to my music, I want you to feel something beyond technical aptitude, of which I have none.
I work very slowly, sensing how notes feel to me. I tend to work sounds around an emotion or mental state.
Similarly, I have no knowledge of notes, chords, progressions, harmonies, scales, time signatures.
I know that things like that exist, but are unable to knowingly use them.
I am often times at a loss to translate my musical feelings into a piece because I lack this fundamental musical language.
On the other hand, I find the creativity that comes with stabbing into the dark to be highly rewarding.
Yet, as my tracks play, I hear so much more within them that I am unable to convey.
I would like to sit down with some "proper musical people" and allow them to help me further shape my work.
If anyone on here could give me advice, input or feedback for particular tracks I would be very grateful.
I would be very interested in you telling me what I am doing technically. For example, what key a peice is in, wether or not I'm using chords correctly, is my timing way off? Etc.
I've been told I have a natural ear for space and silence inbetween notes.
Thankyou all. Please listen and comment below :)
