Hello there and welcome to my humble presentation! I am a musician and media composer.
—> Solo Concerts:
Chapman Stick instrumental solo concert
“Hands-on” live performance, melodic music with an acoustic approach and melancholic vibe. Anything from regular church concerts to plain street busking. “Emotional performance” is the key word and I do 50/50 known songs vs my own original compositions. A good reference for this melodic outlet is the Stick Street 2 album in the right side column —->
Electronic Found Sound approach
Interactive live electronics fronted by any kind of sound-source-providing instrument in “Real-time Musique Concrête”. “Fiord jazz”, “ethno-tech”, “noise”, “space”, “neo-classic”… the audience experience may vary depending on what physical instrument I happen to be playing up-front for feeding my self-designed electronic meta-instrument. This program is often requested by Live Looping Festivals and experimental events.
I may also blend these two repertoires, putting on a unique hybrid concert form to match specific events.
—> Media Music
Is about composing and producing music recordings to be licensed for use in media productions. I’m in a dozen business-to-business collaborations with labels that distribute Production Music Libraries. My library music is heard in radio, television and web productions all around the world.
Sometimes a director has asked me to record a soundtrack before or during the actual filming. This approach is exciting because the music is tailored to work together with the visual storytelling, dialog and sync sound.
Before the act of creating music took over my full occupation I had time for other work on the side, as you can read below.
