Original, high quality music with true depth and drama.
I have written and performed music for over 25 years and, growing up, played violin, saxophone, bass, gamelan, guitar and drums, eventually pursuing guitar, piano and vocals.
I use real electric and acoustic guitars and basses and genuine, high-quality, virtual instruments elsewhere, including Native Instruments, Cinesamples, SoundIron, 8dio, LA Scoring Strings and Sonokinetic VSTs.
I do not use any pre-recorded melodic loops and very few rhythmic loops. I compose and play all melodic and percussive parts myself on keyboard, something I feel adds a great level of originality and character.
With my profile here, I am writing music specifically for media use – ideally films or shorts – but really, any production that feels my music would suit them!
I was singer, guitarist and sometimes drum programmer with the progressive-art-rock band Idioverse (1995 to 2009).
In Jan 2011 I created Paaliaq – writing and performing ‘rocktronica’.
I have released 3 albums, 7 EPs and 3 collections so far, and currently have over 9,000 fans on Facebook.
Paaliaq’s music is also available for media use. Please visit http://paaliaq.net/soundtraqs/ for details.
