Music affects us all in a different way. No matter who we are, where we've come from, or what we'll be, music will guide us along that path. It is a language that speaks to the deepest part of us, gives us hope, makes us laugh and makes us cry, all without saying a single word.

In high school, Cypress Lake for the Arts was where I evolved. There, I showed my Orchestra teacher some arrangements I had made for marching band and he asked me a question that would change everything: "Have you ever considered composing as a career?"

Service Description

I was trained in classical music composition at Stetson University. Classical music is the origin of all the genres that we know today, so I have rooted myself in that foundation to further my knowledge and prowess in the world of composition. Classical is indeed my strongest genre; Strings, Brass, Percussion, Woodwinds. Being a musician in Jazz band, I am also very fond of and interested in writing for Jazz style music. I mainly use Finale to orchestrate classical piece. I have the full version of the program with an updated instrument pack that provides a more natural and realistic sound.

I've composed several personal works which are available on my soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/nomnomnixon. These pieces have been made of my own accord, drawing from inspirations around me. I have also had experience making electronic pieces with Logic Pro such as Dub Step, or eight-bit and synthesized video game music.

I am able to write music for all manner of needs. I can use a combination of the two programs, where I can play off the strengths of each to really empower your creation and give it the life and emotion that is needs and deserves. Whether it be Orchestral, classical, Jazz, Dub Step, Electronic, or anything in between, I can provide the perfect music, tailored to your needs.
