How I began composing the scores for Music Audio Stories.
The process of creating music for my stories varies but they do often begin with a strong melody on the piano. Sections of music are built around a theme to match each scene of the story. I am an organic composer which means I improvise, letting ideas flow naturally. I don't use formulas or mathematical equations. I work with my instincts and emotions and never over analyse anything I create.
Unlike other audiobooks, the music in my stories continues throughout and is an essential part of the stories. If you listen carefully to my stories, you will notice that the music is phrased with the narration and character voices, making it almost seem like songwriting rather than your standard audiobook. This is because I compose the score as I am writing the story.
I'm so proud of what I have been able to create with Music Audio Stories and I can't wait to see what audiobooks I can come up with as there as many topics I would like to write about!
I will be writing a bit more about music in my next blog post, so look out for it!
