Biography

SchwanSongs is the creative musical outlet of a computer and a man collaborating to capture and extract a world of music swirling in the man's head. The music is purely instrumental and melodic, with each piece trying out a different genre, often ambient, rock & roll, blues, classical, smooth jazz, world, or electronica. The music more often incorporates realistic sounding instruments, as opposed to industrial/techno-synthesized computer blips.

Music is meant to transcend language and cultural differences and stir the soul of the listener. The sincere hope is that this music will do just that, without suffering too much from the writer's countless years (i.e. zero) of training in music theory and composition.

Musical influences come from a lifetime of classical music, 60s-80s rock music, and classical/folk music from many countries (South America, Russia, Japan, Ireland, ...) Some influential names in music are: Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd, Loreena McKennitt, Yamasaki Hako, Enigma, J.S. Bach, Tchaikovsky, Berlioz, Beethoven.
