Film Scores

John Jamali - Melancholic Hills

I have been reading up on Vangelis a lot after writing my film scores and would have to say he is one of the most interesting artists of modern times. According to his wiki page he is a self taught musician with no formal training who in fact rejected training as a child. He refuses to be interviewed yet he has sold millions of records (without even showing his face in public). He draws many parallels to another favourite artist of mine Kenny Dixon Jnr and I guess that is why their music is so good.

The V man has motivated me to write some film scores. I have finished about 8 now and will try to get them all online as soon as possible. In the meantime, I have uploaded one on this page for preview. I do not really like clicking a mouse or quantizing beats so I write the whole body of the track live with keys, mainly using “thor” within Reason.

Its good to see Carl Craig is also heading in this direction and I hope to hear more ambient work from him. I believe in the 90’s Danny Howelss was also doing the same and there are some really good compilations with his name floating around discogs I think.
