Artist Statement

As Shakespeare once said, "If music be the food of love, play on," I believe that music and sounds for visual media, such as film, TV series and video-games, are the food of all emotions, the power that moves the mechanisms of the human soul to connect to characters and stories. Thus, I do my best to achieve such level; complement an already beautiful piece of visuals into something that cannot be measured by words.

After writing my last blog on my transition to Adaptive Music and how I fell in Love with Elias Studio, I decided to go a bit deeper.

At the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, I was introduced to the adaptive music tool for game composers, Elias. They showed me the newly introduced MIDI capabilities, and I began to think about how it compared to other middleware.
