Eric Keller I'm studying to be a composer.

Welcome.

Click → to my music  

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.

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.

My current teacher is Ivo Antognini, a composer who teaches at the Lugano (Switzerland) music conservatory. His lessons are direct and get right to the heart of what I need to learn. A competent instructor cuts right to the chase by finding out what you don't know and what you need to work on.

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.
