Aaron Cadam Samuels
I am a composer of original music for magical, imaginative films. I am powerfully moved by the music of the Romani people, Romantic-era composers, choral music, Middle Eastern, Northern African, and classical Indian. I love the works of Chopin, especially his nocturnes for their delightful ornamentation and range of colors. I love Tchaikovsky for the same reasons and also for his incredible orchestrations. I love Thomas Newman for his dynamic textures and the humility in his piano lines. I love Nick Drake for his invitational delivery and the brilliance of his lyrics, melodies, and rhythms.
