Composing Tools

These are some of the tools I use for composing music in general, as well as for composing film music and film scores, including composing software using high quality actual sampled instruments (real musicians play real instruments that are then recorded every possible way so that the composer has real instrument played notes to compose with). MIDI keyboards, MIDI mixing sound boards, monitoring speakers, pro headphones and a digital audio workstation (I use Reaper).

About

I am a music composer currently based in Duluth, Minnesota USA, part of the Arrowhead Region of northern Minnesota. I am always busy composing in a variety of music genres. Film music is a my favorite type of music, so if the right project comes my way I can score film music for a filmmaker anywhere in the world, remotely.  I have a composing studio and an amazing collection of music instrument (‘sample’) libraries to orchestrate composed music using high quality real instrument sounds. I can be contacted using my contact form on this site. I pursue a variet of art forms including music composing, oil painting, drawing, and photography.

If you have a film or media or television project that needs original composed music, a film score or television score, I can create original music for your project. I enjoy the creative process of coming up with musical themes and harmonies and countermelodies for compositions, and every project that needs music is unique. Though I am wanting to compose music for a video project such as film, tv, or media, or even a game, I still enjoy composing to simply create music for ‘albums’ to put up on streaming music services such as Spotify or iTunes– so I will keep composing until the right outside project comes along. –randall_oelerich
