this is my music related blog, here you will find posts about music composition techniques, different instruments techniques, orchestration, arrangements, sound recording, mixing and mastering, so more or less about what I do as composer, performer and producer.
If you prefer less music technical posts and/or you like Progressive Rock Metal I recommend you to read Obsidian Key’s “Diary from the studio” a blog about my best known project which aim to “document” all the music creation process for each album and single of one of the most popular new progressive rock metal project! You can find Obsidian Key – Diary from the studio here.
Thanks for reading and really hope you’ll enjoy the experience!

I am studying as music producer and I already practice this amazing art with some local band here in Brighton…
After years playing and composing music, being a sound engineer I think the logical evolution would be to get into the secret art of music production.
I am specialized in the following music genres:
1) Progressive Rock, Progressive Metal
2) Rock, Rock-Blues
3) Heavy Metal and Hard Rock
5) Movie soundtracks
Please click on the music genre you’re interested into to have examples of my productions.
