I started out 10 years ago making soundtracks for our product and service videos. Cinematic tracks are my current focus, you can find several themes on Reverbnation under SIMONICA The Band.
I make a bunch of noise on anything, don't read music anymore and love experimenting.
I am trying to learn some of the deep end stuff but use AUDACITY and TRACKAX for most of my work.
I am setting up an area this summer where I can fool around with keyboards, drum and such.
I listen to a lot of stuff sent to me from members of Reverbnation, Instagram and such. I like listening to my own tracks also.
Alfred Hitchcock and composers around the 1930's and up gave me inspiration. My first exposure was watching Disney Cartoons with their wonderful mix of orchestra and Foley.
Cinematic themes rely on grabbing the listener and evoking emotional responses be they happy, sad scared etc. I like to take the listener somewhere and give them an experience not likely forgotten.
I have a small family business located in Campbellfield, Melbourne. We sell Beer Wine Spirits and other drinks wholesale and retail. My chores are varied day to day but I make social media, advertising and research. I enjoy reading Contracts, legal stuff and technology keeps me busy.
