Music of Riiga

Another of my hobbies is to attempt to compose orchestral music. I use Ableton Live software and the Edirol Orchestral VST for all my instruments. Occasionally, I will use Magnus Choir for choral sections.

Before you hear any of my music, I would like to make a few points.

  • I have had no training in composing, orchestration, classical music, or music theory, and what you hear is more or less what I have taught myself. I apologise for any damage to your musical sensitivities caused by my uneducated attempts at music.
  • Some (all) of the songs are lengthy, so I apologise in advance for both the filesize and potential boredom caused by hearing my music. But honestly... if you finding it boring, I don't want to hear it, because I made this music for myself.
  • Pretty much all of my songs are based on something/someone/someplace in Riiga. If a song interests you, enter the name of the person/place/thing into the search bar to find an article on what it's about (hopefully).
  • I welcome feedback, so contact me in any way you can if you want to tell me something about my music!
