Eric Keller I'm studying to be a composer.

Welcome.

How can one learn to compose? By studying what others have done, by digging into the theory, and by experimenting. That's what I do: I study, I learn and I experiment.

Semester Offline -- June-December 2020

I am taking a half year offline, to try something I have never done before.

I wish to think and learn extensively about how I want to compose music. In addition to various readings, I will study what other composers do in similar situations.

I will keep a private log that I will summarize at the end.

Thank you for landing on this site in increasing numbers. Sharing this site with you makes it all worth while to write music for you.

Have many happy thoughts. I'll see you again in December 2020.

I like to create music that is rhythmic, melodious and harmonious, music that feels natural and good inside and that connects with the inner self. Rhythm involves us, melody gives music its meaning, and harmony renders it more acceptable and makes it stick in memory.

Music is part of human nature. Just listen to the music in your head. I’ve had melodies swirling around my head for as long as I can remember, and I love working them into full melodies.

ComposingI experiment. I've built a virtual orchestra in my computer, with instruments from around the world. As I go along, I discover new tricks. I hear new effects. I discover more secrets in composition and sound processing.

Here you'll find some steps of my learning. The site keeps growing.Free Music With every piece of music, I wonder how to make the music even better with my various tools.

Also, a love story winds itself through these compositions. It starts with this article.

Have a look around. Perhaps you might like something here. All my music is free.
