Hi I'm Lionel, born in 1998, composer of cinematic music, living in Germany.
I write music in many different styles and types - from emotional musical portraits to big epic jackhammers. ;)
While I love writing cinematic music in all it's facets the most, I don't really want to write music for actual films or games. I don't enjoy being locked to a specific pace of events that dictates the flow of the music and hinders the music from having its own structure. Writing production/trailer music allows for much more creative freedom.
I hardly ever use loops or other things that "make the music" for me. I usually play/program everything myself, including drums. And my goal is to make everything as lively and interesting as possible and I always work a lot to make the orchestral samples I currently have sound as realistic as possible.
I have zero musical education – all my music comes from my heart and just follow my instincts.
In about 2013 I started fooling around with a little keyboard, without any proper software and still wrote some music using a weird custom notation system. I started writing music seriously at the beginning of 2015.
Hope you enjoy the music and thanks for stopping by.
