My name is Jack Daniel Young and I live in Salt Lake City, Utah.
I'm a Media Music student at Salt Lake Community College, and I'm pursuing a career in composing and audio production for TV, film and video games. I am open to any inquiries, offers of collaboration or projects to work on... just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is "works-to-date" album of sorts; all of this material was made with no album concept in mind. They were made over the last five years or so as a result of me just practicing music and trying new things. I often try to imagine a scene, a deep emotion, some internal perspective far removed from myself, and then write music for it. Most of my music has undertones of conflict and tension, some it tries to relate peace and harmony. Others are just there to lay down a beat and be exciting. I can't help but let some of my weirdo sense of humor leak out into the music sometimes, I hope you don't mind too terribly.
Most of this music was made with Propellerheads Reason 6.5. Some of it was made with a Nintendo Game Boy DMG-01 using LSDJ.
