Hi, I am Dorien May. Music composer, producer & songwriter. Through music, I want to tell a story.
When writing music, every artist has their approach to express a particular emotion. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what instruments or sounds they use. I think it’s more of a personal choice. Everyone has their preferences, including me.
My goal is clear. It is to do whatever it takes to make music move you.
I am a pianist. I am also a drummer and a guitarist. But my favorite instrument to write music is piano. I love the orchestra, especially the strings. And also synths and all kinds of sound effects.
Happiness. Fear. Love. Anger. Hatred. People surrounding us form our paths. Various situations, different emotions. They flow through us. They are the result of our feelings. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Music speaks to our hearts and souls.
Everybody has one. When we share our stories, we connect. When we connect, we feel more related. Sharing is caring. We should take care of each other – to make a world a better place to live. Music connects us all.
An important thing for me is to stay focused on the big picture. It is easy to get lost by paying too much attention to the smaller elements. However, all the details define a character of the final piece, hence it is crucial to pay attention to them.
