Hi! I'm Oliver Sadie, and London is where I spend my days.
For a living, I do 2 jobs. I crunch numbers all day long in a Finance job but by night I compose, perform and produce music professionally for film and tv. My number 1 instrument is the piano, which I've played all my life and features heavily in my work of many genres.
I've been on SoundCloud for 3 years now and have had an incredible time of it. It's no co-incidence that my time on SoundCloud has been the formative part of my musical career - I started as a bedroom musician with an iPhone and a piano, but it is the community of passionate music makers which keeps drawing me back every night to make more and hear more music, and encourages me to learn more and improve my craft. I use the platform to the max, and those tracks you see on my profile are a tiny fraction of the tons of private tracks on there which I use for collaborations and for sharing work in progress with the film & tv directors I work with.
It's hard to pick a favourite collaboration or community activity on SoundCloud, I've been involved in so many great ones it's like trying to pick your favourite child. But some highlights include my SoundCloud Sinfonietta mass collaborations, the 2nd of which is nearing completion, and my YourTune project where I turned 20 second melodies into full pieces.
My favourite sound in the whole world is the glug-glug of the pouring of the first dram of a fine single malt whisky with friends. Music to my ears. Mm.
Anyway, back to SoundCloud. I'm thrilled to be part of the Hero programme, although I think that's an incredible title to live up to. Maybe I'll save some baby pandas from a crocodile before actually calling myself a Hero, in the meantime, I'm just Oliver Sadie and doing what I normally do anyway - having fun collaborating with the incredible talent right here, and that probably includes you. Well, I might not have heard you, maybe your singing sounds like a baby panda being eaten by a crocodile, but hey, that's what I'm here for.
I'd also like to take the opportunity to bring more light to professional composer communities like SCOREcast:Online.
Thanks, see you on the 'Cloud!
