Hi. I´m Fredrik Danielsson. I´m an amatuer musician whose new to this and love cinematic, epic as well as emotive music. Since I discovered midi composing my life changed completely and really hope I will learn to compose in this genre(I work in another field construcion). I play piano, guitar and accordion. I use Cubase 10 and Studio one 4.
I like both but I think I will choose to continue to get deeper into Cubase. I use Komplete 11 ultimate, Albion one, Cs2, Css, Csss, 8dio Anthology, Emotional piano, Ilya Efimov guitars, Oceania, 8dio Requiem, 8dio Majestica and some other libraries. I took your course on epic music. I´ll be back to share something when I´m a little more skilled. Thanks.

Hello! :wave: My name is Tony Hmt, First of all, excuse my English. I’m from Spain :es:
This community looks nice and familiar, I just wanted to join, learn a lot with you, and have some fun at last. :hugs:
I’ve been a musician since 2003, I started learning guitar, then bass, then drums, and I was a big fan of rock music. I always liked to record our music and enjoyed composing music for all my bands. Tired of listening to Rock music and realizing that all sound always the same nowadays, I expanded to listen other genres. I really enjoy electronic music and above all, soundtracks of films or games. Right now I want to make a music career by making music for videos, films or videogames… and that’s my objective in the years to come. Hoping this community will help me and I’ll try to help too. :blush:

Anthony (Tony) Adams here. I have been a professional composer and arranger since writing my first film score in 1973. In addition to composing, I have orchestrated many film/TV scores for the top composers in Hollywood and London. Additionally, I have produced many recordings for composers and artists. While based in Los Angeles for many years, I also worked a lot in London and lived there over the turn of the century. I have used Finale for many years and my DAW of choice is Nuendo (but have also used ProTools and Logic).

I am ‘semi-retired’ and am now living in Hawaii where I am still composing and arranging for clients world-wide as well as locally.

I hope I can be of benefit to others and share my many years of experience and a few memories.

Welcome Tony, great to have you here. I think it is great to have a background playing instruments, and producing more popular styles of music like rock. I come from metal/EDM background myself, but like you I started to more and more go into cinematic music, which is what I love the most. It has the most range of expression, tone, mood, style to me. Please do join the discussions in here, start new topics, ask questions, and also check out the section where you can post music and give and get feedback on compositions. :slight_smile:

Sincerely
Mike

Welcome Anthony, or shall I presume you want to go by Tony? With that many years of experience you will certainly be deeply appreciated in the community. I have always admired orchestrators, as it is the fine art of composition, where you really need to know the instruments you arrange for.

I suspect that no one really truly retires from music. How can we? It is so much part of our lives, and as composers, who we are. :slight_smile:

Please do join the discussions, start new topics, and connect with fellow composers in the forums.

Sincerely
Mike

I am a man from Belgium that likes to create music. I followed 4 years of music classes and 7 years of keyboard classes when I was a little kid(7-14 years old). I made songs back then on my Roland E-600. When I was 13 my father died and a bit after that I just stopped with the music… Now 1 year ago I decided, after 20 years of gathering dust to get my Roland E-600 out of under the dust and play a bit on it. I then discovered that there was a disquette in the drive. I knew I recorded my songs on disquette when I was a child, the ones I had created myself. I decided to listen to it. When I listened to the first songs I started to cry. I could not believe what I had thrown away… I decided to start making music again and not even a week later I got a Novatation Launchkey for my birthday from my mother. I simply did not have the money to buy it. But she bought it for me and I am thankfull for that. There was a Ableton Live Lite version included which got upgraded to the standard version pretty soon. Been creating tracks from then on. I know my songs do not sound like the professionals, I do not have a lot of effects on it because I simply lack the skills. The only thing I can do is play the keyboard a bit. I mostly just improvise. When I start making a track I do not know at all what I am gonna play, I never have ideas, I just play. I do not have any real skills but I put my heart and soul in it and I hope that is enough to entertain some of you with the music I try to make. I thank God for the inspiration He gives me.

Welcome Jimmy, pleased to have you join this amazing community of composers! :slight_smile:

Music is something we all have in us, and with us, throughout our entire life. It’s the most powerful language in the world, and an incredible journey of emotions made from sounds. I hope you keep on making music now that you found your way back to it.

Sincerely,
Mike
