Welcome to my blog!
It gives me great pleasure to announce my new website and official blog.
My blog will serve as a home for all things composition and orchestrator, with news and project updates as well as tips and tricks on orchestration. My aim for the blog is to be a source of inspiration of education and for fellow composers. Expect lots of useful tips and tricks I've learnt along the way, with in-depth guides to the process of writing and recording music.
Over the first few months, I plan to release a series of tips and tricks starting in composition, where I will be branching out into writing music for film and concert and the process of collaborating. Also, I will be talking in-depth and guiding you through the art of orchestration, talking about the ideas behind the process, choosing what instruments to write for, protecting the musical material and integrity.
