The Story Behind The CollectionNews
Hey there! Let’s dive into the backstory of The Collection—a compilation of music I’ve been crafting since 2018 when I first set my sights on becoming a fantasy music composer. It’s been quite the adventure!
Before embarking on this journey, I was a music teacher, dabbled in rock bands, and even spent some years as a web developer to keep the lights on while kickstarting my composing career.
Now, back to The Collection…
Each album in The Collection holds a special place in my heart and represents a unique chapter in my creative journey.
With the Dragon Tales series, I dove headfirst into the genre, aiming to capture that nostalgic, old-school orchestral vibe from my childhood.
Fjall came next, a deeply personal album that allowed me to explore themes of nature and Norse culture.
My creativity then flowed into Two Rivers Tales, inspired by Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series, followed by Vampires, which drew heavily from Anne Rice’s works.
If you haven’t noticed, I’m a total bookworm! Reading and nature are my biggest muses. In fact, I often write music on paper and away from the computer, saving screen time for the production process. This approach makes the whole experience more enjoyable and meaningful for me.
So, what’s next? I’m currently working on videos that reveal the behind-the-scenes magic of my albums—the inspiration, themes, challenges, and ideas. Stay tuned for their release!
