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 fell in love with composing music when in South Africa, after moving from my native Belgium. Rhythms, beats and sounds of Africa stylised my music, some of which was used for television, wildlife documentaries, sport and corporate video. Further colour was added during time spent in the USA. I moved to the UK where I focused on composing music for media after completing a diploma course in the same. My main instruments are piano and violin and I’m furthering study in Cinematic Orchestration.
The Violin is a very beautiful composition. I have two compositions that have some solo violin in them. However they are not on my page here. Thank you so much for sharing.
Hey by living in Surrey you don't mean in BC Canada do you?
Great music. Super awesome foundation, good use of strings, good libraries, good structure! I'm Stephen M Lloyd with ADENS SKY, I as well LOVE native music. Karl Jankins opened my mind! Great to meet you!
Most definitely! Nice textures and statements...very inspiring indeed. "The Violin" is nice. I'll be checking in and listening. Thanks for writing back Marie-Anne.
I just love your stuff!
Hi Marrie-Anne! Thank you very much! It's great to be here! ^_^ Always a pleasure to meet nice people & learn new things! See you around. :)

Hola Marie-Anne, found your site by acci-way. Totally into ME/N Africa rhythms and disparate instruments mash-ups. Māori rocks! Your use of contrast is very diametric, no cross-pollination. You also capture those gritty string resonances which I like better than butter legatos. Well done.
BTW: Congo Nzinga hymn you should check out. You'd have fun weaving its raw chorus with some of your string chops and orchestrations.
Just visited your site, and listened to "The Violin"...love it!! Also noticed on your site that we use the same equipment...Mac & Logic. I'm pretty new to midi composing but am taking some courses on line w/Berklee. Here's a link to my site..http://go.berkleemusic.com/WStaab I have some music posted there, if you'd like to listen. If you do, let me know what you think.
I just purchased Vienna Inst. cube...big bucks for that. So I'm trying to get to know it, but having a little trouble with things now.
At any rate, I love you web site and your music!
Take Care, Bill
