Electronic

All my ‘classical’ music scores receive comprehensive computer-generated sound. You can hear them at the posts related to compositions above.

Besides that, I used to arrange those scores with a range of electronic sounds and rhythms. Check my portfolio page Electronic, section Auto-Arrangements, to get more information about it.

I produce electronic music originating on its own, with or without classical scores. Check my portfolio page Electronic, sections Original Compositions, to get more information.
