Hi Sound Clouders and welcome to my SoundCloud page
I started piano lessons since I was 6 years old, inspired by my mother piano teacher, who accidentally discovered that I am gifted with my almost absolute music hearing (perfect pitch). I studied piano and music theory for about 11 years and achieved very good classical piano performance playing Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and many others.
Later In my high school and college years I was introduced to, and immediately fell in love with early and late Hard, Psychedelic, Progressive, Symphonic and Space rock bands and composers like: Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, ELP, Deep Purple, Rainbow, Uriah Heep, Grand Funk Railroad, Yes, Queen, Jethro Tull, Genesis, Styx, Foreigner, Electric Light Orchestra, Asia, Dire Straits, Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre, and many others (God of the Hard Rock forgive me if I missed someone worthy). During 70's-80's I played piano and synthesizer in small rock band and since then I my heart and soul is with this music forever.
With my engineering skills I even tried to build small synth, but lack of resources and access to the parts quickly become a death sentence to this project :(
Now I am merely amateur musician and self-taught digital music composer/producer in my free time.
A few years ago I started experimenting with DAW based electronic composing and I am fascinated about enormous advance these days in modern software based sound synthesis. I love my “mighty” Dell mobile workstation with enormous computing power that can produce virtually endless count of leads, sounds, pads, patches drum beats effects etc.
I am still exploring ways of composition, sound recording, mastering and producing digitally synthesized music using famous http://www.image-line.com FL Studio 12 and an extended set of synthesizer plugins like FPC, DrumSynth, Harmor, Harmless, Sytrus etc. coming with it and a few 3rd party VST instruments like u-he Zebra, Diva, Spectrasonic Omnisphere 2 etc. I found it as a great, easy to learn, relative inexpensive, DAW to record, capture, mix, sound engineering and produce my music ideas up to the final stage of release.
For all my live performance and MIDI input I am using my old favorite Yamaha P80 88-Key Graded Hammer Effect Digital Piano and Alesis QX49 Advanced MIDI keyboard. I built at home small inexpensive studio with of-the-shell mixer, True Sound studio monitors and good pair of professional monitor headphones.
When I discovered SoundCloud I immediately became part of this enormous social site that seamlessly connects everybody around the world, who loves to create and produce or just listening to music. I am fascinated with its vast genre richness and worldwide reach.
I am still experimenting with various things in music, so I can't say that am always writing in some specific style. Sometime you may find some of the pieces that may sound quite differently.
I generally describe my genre as Electronic Instrumental Progressive Space Rock but might be off this feel sometimes.
I hope my first trials don't get too "harsh comments" :-))), but don’t get me wrong I am open to any opinion of my music. Please feel free to leave comments, favor and re-post any of my pieces. I will try the same as my time allows me to do it.
Thank You for checking my music. Hope it will deliver to you some pleasurable listening experience
