As many of you may know, before I started working as a composer, I was a guitarist for many years. I fell in love with rock music all the way in 2008 when I was 12 years old. It was exactly this genre that brought me into the world of music. Starting out as a classical guitarist in a music school, participating in many competitions, starting a band back in 2012 "Almost American" as well as playing in Hillsboro High School Jazz Band for over a year - this type of music is in my soul.
When it comes to my rock music production you will find heavy influences of many various bands. In terms of hard rock bands my direct inspirations are Godsmack, Tool, Limp Bizkit, The Offspring and Helmet. When it comes to lighter rock I was greatly influenced by Switchfoot, Coldplay, Weezer, Green Day and Blink-182.
In video game music world - rock always played an intergral part, even though sometimes not the most obvious. My go to references in terms of writing rock soundtrack music is Prince of Persia: Warrior Within soundtrack, Doom and Tony Hawk series.
