Music has always been a part of my life. I appreciate almost all forms music comes in as you can see by the people I follow. When I was young I remember being drawn to the music in films, and to this day I have a huge soundtrack collection. The film composers who had the greatest impact on me are John Barry, Gerry Goldsmith, and Bernard Hermann.
Classical music is amazing, my favorites being Stravinsky (The Rite Of Spring!), Debussy, and Prokofiev.
I was also greatly influenced by the great synth bands of the 80's like Human League, Thompson Twins, Duran Duran, Depeche mode and Heaven 17.
All time favorite group: Renaissance.
Modern obsessions would include Sufjan Stevens , Swimming and Ulrich Schauss.
To this day I cannot read or write musical notation, and am not fluent with keyboards. Thanks to computer sequencing (FL Studio at the moment) I can get some of my ideas across.
