When we interviewed Kevin Mantey almost one year ago we didn’t expect having to add him to our composer’s list that soon. It proofs how anyone can learn to compose music without playing an instrument or knowing the basics of music theory as you will read at the end of this post. As in any other subject all you need is to be passionate about something and having a good teacher.
After promoting this music for so many years, I started to make music myself. This one is my first composition ever and it’s called Magnetia. I know there is still much to learn and improve, but i hope you like it!
If you ask yourself now how Kevin Mantey learnt to compose music without proper knowledge about instruments or music theory, here’s the answer: ReallySlowMotion‘s composer Crian announced on his Facebook page he helped Kevin Mantey out doing his first steps.
We we’re skyping and talking a lot and I tried to teach him the basics of music and music production as he wished to make music one day, too, like his big idols, but he unfortunately was not able to do as he never learned playing instrument or music theory in detail.
He was working on that track and on his abilities really patiently and concentrated for a long time.
I am really, really proud of him now.
THIS is how to make dreams come true, my friends!
