Spirited, Positive Music Scores by a Martial Artist Monk

 

An interview with Soundtrack Composer Geoffrey Wilson

Geoffrey has been a part of 300 Monks for several years now.  We did a quick little interview.

How did you get started composing/producing?

I have been a guitarist, pianist and composer since I was a kid and I began making my own recordings at a young age in other people’s studios. I eventually got a degree in composition really emphasizing technology and learned how to produce on my own. Out of school I was a struggling musician but made a living performing, teaching, and doing sound engineering gigs which really helped me hone in my producing chops. I eventually started scoring low budget projects and got signed to some music libraries. That was the beginning of my career.

How do people describe your music?

I write in many, many genre’s but the most consistent descriptions I hear are “cool”, “great”, “stylish”, “spirited” “positive” .
– What do you feel makes your music uniquely your own?
A number of things. I’m trained in many styles including classical, jazz and world music and I draw from many musical traditions. I’m also a very spiritual person and I like to be a conduit and allow the music to write itself. Experiences from being in nature and the human condition in all it’s facets are major influences.

What 3 pieces of your own are you favorite tracks and why?Is there an interesting story creating them?

A Call to Heroes – It’s heavy and it’s a call to the warrior spirit in all of us. I’m a martial artist and a Buddhist and there’s a saying “We learn to destroy so that we may preserve.”

What is your composing process?

I hear the color and texture first and then parts emerge.

Have you had any notable placements or custom scores?

I was asked recently to write some cues for a Ron Howard and Brian Grazer produced National Geographic show called “Breakthrough”.

Where would you love your music to be featured/placed?

I would really like my music to be a part of any programming that can influence the world in a positive way.
The bigger the production the better.

Heavy Hard Rock Music, A Monk Profile

Julian Angel

Location:  Wurzberg, Germany

Website

Style of Music:  Heavy Metal, Hard Rock

Julian Angel, the monk of heavy!

Julian Angel, the monk of heavy!

Julian just added some rocking authentic and certified bonafide heavy rock tracks to the 300 Monks Music library.  Here’s a profile.

How did you get started composing/producing?

I have been creating song ideas in my head way before I actually started playing an instrument. I taught myself how to play the guitar at the age of 15 and managed to transfer my ideas to that instrument about a year later. Ever since I’ve been constantly working on ideas – in the studio, in my car, during shopping with the lady, everywhere and everytime…

How do people describe your music?

Too loud, too fast, too heavy for their film productions (laughing).

What do you feel makes your music uniquely your own?

I do what I love, because that’s what I do best. My music sounds very authentic. I know exactly what Hard & Heavy music is about and I don’t try playing styles I have no clue about.

What 3 pieces of your own are you favorite tracks and why? Is there an interesting story creating them?

I like “Roadkill” as it was the first Heavy Metal track I recorded for use in film and television.

Roadkill by Julian Angel

Artist/Composer:Julian Angel
Very hard piece of Heavy Metal with a nervous opening, driving guitar riffs, dissonant leads and a blastbeat middle section.
Keywords: Metallica, Bolt Thrower, Slayer, hard, fast, death metal, weird, frightening, extreme sports, racing, cars, motorcycles, nascar, monster truck, fighting, tough, powerful, car crash, headbanging, mosh pit, rocker, biker,

I’ve always had something going with wrestling entrance music.

And, of course, there is “Chaos” which is way too fast, too wild and too crazy – but just the right choice for extreme sports and overturning cars.

Who are your influences?

I have grown up on Hair Metal and guitar virtuosos such as Steve Vai, George Lynch and Yngwie Malmsteen. Although Hard & Heavy is my favorite genre I’m also into artists like Prince, KMFDM and Frank Zappa. Anyone with a great attitude and a good story to tell can be an influence, be it Arnold Schwarzenegger, real estate rock czar Frank McKinney, Dee Snider of Twisted Sister.

What is your composing process?

I start with rough ideas in my head. Then I record – okay, I admit I program – a drum beat and actually jam along on my guitar until the song fully comes together. I drink lots of iced coffe while I play.

Where would you love your music to be featured/placed?

I’ve already had it placed in a few action films with Dolph Lundgren, Vinnie Jones and Steven Seagal and I think that genre is a perfect fit. A tv series like Sons Of Anarchy would be great as well.

Modern Media Composer Sebastian Morawietz

Composer_Sebastian Morawietz
Name: Sebastian Morawietz
Location: Berlin (Germany)
Style of Music: Corporate, Production Music, Cinematic (Electro-Orchestral)

Composer, Producer, Artist – How do you define yourself?

Modern Media Composer. Definitely not as a film composer. I do a lot for corporate companies, image-films and such things. And I do work closely together with some publishers, where I release music exclusively for underscoring etc… . In the past I did also a lot of pure producing and arranging jobs, which I also quite enjoy, since it is great to collaborate with other talent. I guess I am spending enough time alone in my studio. way to much. 😉

How long working as professional?

I started in 1999 ‘professionally’ if you like. I was hired in a UK studio as an assistant engineer/ programmer, which really was a great time and experience. We actually did produce some No.1 Albums (UK/ Europa) and I am still kind of proud to credited on it. And so is my mother! But as much I enjoyed it, I always wanted to be a composer, not just editing other stuff and/ or playing on their records. And since I did have a proper classical training in piano and music theory, I really felt I can do it. Well – to make it short – I do was very optimistic at that time – but the reality is, there are also really many highly talented composers out there and it was extremely hard to pay the bills and keep it going. It kind of relaxed a bit now, having had some placements and build some professional connection.

What was your best professional experience?  Worst?

Really hard to tell. I really don’t know, honestly. I still did not had ‘THE’ best experience. there were surely some great surprising in the last years. Hey-  and a couple of great jobs I had came through Andrew and his 300 Monks company. Really fantastic. A DVD-Trailer and a Website Flash Intro. Sorry to drift off, but big thanks!  (see below for Sebastian’s Starburst music)
Worst? …  I though at least! – a great job. Worked Mon-Sunday…and the client, for whatever reason did not buy it. Frustrating! I guess every college student had at least a few of these experiences. You really have to love your job to keep going.

What instruments do you play?

My main instrument is the piano. I started when I was 5 or 6 and still think it is one of the most beautiful sounds. But  I admit I am also quite a technology guy and have invested in a lot of virtual instruments etc. My main tool for now over 10 years is Logic. I started with version 3 and I just love it. And it is scary to realize that I spend probably more time with it than with my girl-friend! 😉

What do you think is the future of music and media as a business?  An art?

Really difficult to answer. The business is changing a lot and I am worried that the value of music is declining in the future. all this file-sharing, flat-rates etc… will and already have an enormous impact and I do hope companies like BMI, PRS etc… do find good answers to earn money for their members. but how difficult it is was the last dispute with Youtube and PRS… . On the other hand I am a firm believer in quality and composers (etc…) how really put their passion, talent and education into their works will always find a way.

Who are your heroes?  Musical influences?

Ennio Morricone. He is just THE one for me. So emotional and his melodies are so wonderful. What an inspiration to me. Honestly. I do like also the works of Gabriel Yared (Film composer f.e. English Patient) and Craig Armstrong (Scottish Film Composer f.e. World Trade Center, Incredible Hulk).  Craig has a special &  stylish way of combining electronica with traditional orchestral music. But  – generally  – I listen to a lot of music, especially Film Soundtrack and I find it very inspirational.

1999- AWNY Advertising Award – Best Music

How long working as professional?

15 years

What was your best professional experience? –

My best experience was working at a jingle house in NYC called Fearless Music. I was there from 1995 to 2002. I learned everything there, from producing, to composing music that was not in my experience. It forced me to stretch my creativity.

Worst?

My worst experience was being on tour in the early 1990’s. I was in a band that did a tour of Upstate New York. We made very little money, the van broke down and the Bass player quit in the middle of the tour.

What instruments do you play?

I play Guitar, Bass, Piano and I sing.

What do you think is the future of music and media as a business?  As art?

I think the Music business will focus on the Film and TV industry. Labels are dying out and since people don’t by C.D.’s anymore, the best way to market yourself is to place your songs on a TV show or a Film. It’s also a great challenge for artists to write background music because it forces them to stretch beyond their own scope of thinking. I learned that when I was writing for Commercials.

Who are your heroes?

The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pace De Lucia, Steely Dan

Musical influences?

Classic Rock, Jazz, … a bit of everything.

Other influences?

Classical Music, Flamenco and World Music

What’s a surprising, little known fact about you?

I lived in Athens, Greece for three years when I was a kid. That was where I was influenced by different styles of music and it gave me a broader horizon of genres to learn from. It really affected how I approach music nowadays.

Composer, Producer, Artist – How do you define yourself?

I live a life of music a day at the time. Feel very fortunate for the fact that the 3 titles above came to a perfect blend based on achievements and great opportunities throughout my career.

As a composer, I write for film, tv and concert and consider it my primary field of work.

As a Producer, I utilize my skills from all the years making music on all my scoring work and when in between film scores use those very same skills to produce talent in my studio.

As an Artist, I work on expressing my passion whether it’s based on an image, subject or feeling to the best of my ability. On my solo works I find the most freedom of expression, since I’m in full control. The primary idea is to bring people into the universe that roams inside my mind.

Awards and Professional Highlights-

2008 – Winner – Park City Film Music Festival – Best Score on a Feature Film – (Al Qarem)

2008 – Nominated – Film and TV Music Awards – Hollywood – Best Score on a Short Film (The Angel ) – “Lost” to Michael Giachinno…

2004 – Winner – Skymedia Awards – Best music on a multimedia work – (Una estoria Verdadera – Scored for the New York Yellow Spanish Yellow Pages )

How long working as professional?

Since 1980 as a music producer – Since 2001 as a full time Film Composer

What was your best professional experience?

Several, but to name a couple Spending 3 days being mentored in Orchestration by dear friend Scott Smaley at his ranch in California – Winning the Park City 2008 Awards for best score among 30 other nominated scores.

Worst?

A few as well, but one worth mentioning was having a 3 day 60 piece orchestral session in Prague canceled over the greed of a studio exec.

What instruments do you play?

Guitar(Electric – Acoustic – Classical ) , Bass, Keyboards, Mandolin, Banjo, Ukelele, Duduk, Oud, Saz, Doumbek, Lap steel, Pan flute, Native Indian Flute, Piccolo flute, Turkish Ney, Jaw Harp, Brazilian Berimbau, Brazilian Cuica, Tar drum as well as a number of percussion instruments.
I’m still shopping for more and going about learning them so this list will keep growing…

What do you think is the future of music and media as a business?

I pray for a renaissance. There are too many injustices towards composers for film and other artistic directions. There is too much corporate control without sensibility towards the music industry and I am a firm believer that that’s what brought it to the poor sad state we find it right now.

An art?

It’s uncertain. I pray that the creative freedom and respect that are increasingly being degraded by the media and corporate worlds are rescued back to an art form that was once respected and admired.

Music cannot be a commodity for anyone. People need to understand and link the “talent factor” back to the musician and systematically weed out impostors who are slowly but surely destroying something that otherwise is one of the most important artistic aspects of mankind.

Who are your heroes?

My Father, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Peter Ilych Tchaikovsky, Djivan Gasparyan, John Paul II, Mother Theresa of Calcutta, Mahatma Ghandi, Vlad Tepish the II (a.k.a. Dracula ), Oscar Schindler, Dalai Lama.

Musical influences?

Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Villa Lobos, Puccini, Vivaldi, Bernard Hermann, Wojsiech Killar, Jerry Goldsmith, Alan Silvestri, Danny Elfman, Djivan Gasparyan, Hossein Alizadeh, Mercan Dede, Ennia, Enigma, Gypsy Kings, Pink Floyd, Nacao Zumbi, Raul Seixas, Sepultura, NIN, Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Young Gods

Other influences?

Not believing solely on influences. Being yourself. Creating trends rather than following them.

What’s a surprising, little known fact about you?

Considering life an art form. One to be lived with the highest praise. A blend of art and one’s inner self connection with the Universe.  Believing that spirituality is just as important if not more than all of the things in the material world.
