Q: WHAT DAW DO YOU USE?
I currently use Cubase Pro 10 as my primary digital audio workstation, before switching to Cubase I used FL Studio from version 11 to 20.
Q: WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU CREATE?
I lean towards the more cinematic film & game style soundtracks, but also like to step out of the box from time to time and write in different styles just for fun.
Q: DO YOU PLAY AN INSTRUMENT?
Yes!, a few in fact,… Both Acoustic and Electric Guitar, Bass, Drums, Piano/Keyboard and Ukulele. I also have a Violin and Cello but they are more for show
Q: WHAT ARE YOUR MOST RECENT PROJECTS?
This year I have scored several short films for a handful of different directors. “The Face” directed by Nathan Bender from Australia, “ONI” directed by Marcus Hung from London and “Can’t Go Home Again” directed by Tony Cook from London. I have also been involved with a small indie dev team providing several in-world soundtracks for a recent parkour game.
Q: WHERE CAN I HEAR YOUR MUSIC?
I share my public compositions on both SoundCloud and Youtube, with some of my older works in the “Lycan Studios” playlist on my YT Channel. Links to my social media channels can be found on the home page.
Q: WHAT DO YOU STREAM?
I stream live compositions from scratch, hands on demo’s of newly released virtual instruments and general music goodness over on twitch.tv/ben_thatcher
Q: DO YOU REVIEW TRACKS?
Not at the moment but this may be something to look forward to later down the line.
