By the Way
Angela Kilchor of BTW says:
"We really enjoyed the recording with you. You pushed us musically and the results are much better than we imagined we could create."
"I found it really interesting to see how you approach a song and I went home inspired. With your methods I was able to write a new song straight away."
(Keyboarder with Anja Lehman Band, Beschtof, Alina & Mr H. Stef Hüsler etc.
It's really great. You did a morzmässig" super Job. Specially the mixes are
great but also the arrangments really cool. Congratulations :-)
Song writing is the art of packing a whole series of ideas or experiences into a simple, moving or exciting combination of words and melody.
A good song
- Has universal ideas that everyone can easily relate to
- And ideas that make it fresh or unique
- Has a hookline that the listener loves to sing
I write music sitting at the piano, keyboard or guitar. I use Protools or Logic to capture and develop ideas. My favorite tool for programming is Reason. I like to sketch an idea as a chord chart and let the performer fill out the details. But I can score an orchestral arrangement if required. (I worked with a Polish String Orchestra on my debut album, Far More)
Writing Sound for Picture
Music defines thhe mood and the era of a piece of film. Timeless or trendy, trashy or transcendent. It is all about the choice of sounds, rhythmn and melodic motifs which recur to create an audio identity for a film or video.
If you want to produce music that will reach the world you need to start with strong songs. If you are not a gifted song writer and native english speaker then it is a good idea to start co-writing with some one who is. Like me for example.
I am keen to write with anyone who is actively performing their material or with artists working towards professional recordings.
