Me In A Nutshell
D 4 Disgruntled (aka: D4D) is a music composer pursuing his childhood dream of becoming a music composer for movies, shows and games as well as podcasts, audio books and music libraries.
While actively pursuing his next professional gig as a principle composer, he finds time to be a music assistant to film composers which ocassionally includes ghost writing.
Composers whose music has been an inspiration to D4D are Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, Christopher Young, Richard Band, John Carpenter, Tangerine Dream, Hans Zimmer, and Marco Beltrami. Stylistically, his music ranges from Synthwave, Trance & Electronica, Sound Design, Industrial to Traditional Orchestral. He can be a chameleon if necessary but is working on creating his own voice.
D4D also creates his own independently produced concept soundtrack albums that serve as both demos and a source of supplemental income. These albums when heard, soundlike a full score to a film, but the film does not exist. D4D uses his storytelling abilities to conceives a story around which to compose supporting music. Each story is of his own creation as well as the music that goes with it.
D4D has also started a series of albums called “Horror Re-Scored” in which he selects a particular horror film he favored growing up as well as in adulthood and re-scores it as though he had been hired to do it originally. He composes a new complete score without using any of the original copyrighted material. It is all his own copyrighted musical ideas.
