My name is Brandon Spendlove and I have been playing piano for about 12 years now. I have been studying Classical and Soundtrack roughly around 3 years and I really enjoy it more than any other Genre. I like to compose in many other genres also including Jazz, Classical, Rock, Metal, Blues, Electronic, Orchestral, Chorale and Latin.
I like to spend most of my time either playing piano or composing(both on sheet and computer). I also love to study about the history of music especially Medieval and Classical!
Most of my inspiration comes from people who I have met and listen too. A lot of music tends to inspire me in different ways of thinking and composing. Not only music inspires me but also words, feelings and anyone's action towards me.
I have had so much help from people over the past 2 years with my music and a lot of comments on which I should improve on and what I am doing at my best ability. I take into account any feedback and criticism from anyone who comments about my music and I try my best to avoid what I have done next time, and to learn other new techniques and styles of composing.
Most of my main inspirations are varied from Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Beethoven, Handel, Chopin, John Sebastian Bach, Guido of Arezzo, much more and of course, the environment and people around me.
"I personally think composing in a certain style is not all of what we hear, but one of my best parts about composing in a style of a specific composer E.G Chorales (John Sebastian Bach) or Sonata's (Beethoven and Mozart), Waltz, Upbeat tracks, 80's Metal, 21st century Soundtrack etc.... I love studying composers and how they got by in the early days before they were known and what they have now achieved just by playing in clubs as a solo performer or as a band (Jeremy Soule and John Williams or Hans Zimmer (Featuring the keyboard player in the video 'Video kills the radio star' by the Buggles). It really does interest me a lot to know a bit about the style I am composing in and to focus on those who lived then, yet also mixing the two types of composition techniques from different ages ".
