I feel very lucky to be able to express myself through music
I’m a violinist, composer and music producer passionate about using music to open up energies and connections – and help us move to a deeper creative and receptive space.
My intent with my music is to bring audiences through transformational journeys, by combining the richness and depth of classical and organic playing with modern and impactful electronic production.
After a classical training in France, I was involved in the Paris and Lyon scene as a violinist in various styles, from jazz standards to pop rock, latin jazz to country music. I then decided to seek a new inspiration by moving to Australia to develop my own music, collaborating with other composers and producers along the way.

Tignor has released 9 LPs across the Western Vinyl and New Albion labels to critical acclaim within the classical and experimental communities. He has collaborated with numerous artists at the boundaries of popular music including Keith Kenniff (Helios), Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, John Congleton, and post-rock titans This Will Destroy You. While a young artist in NYC, Tignor mixed bands at CBGBs, was an assistant to La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela, and served as the technical director for 9 years for a New Music festival produced by Phillip Glass. Tignor discovered computers through his college electronic music studio (as a creative writing major), subsequently obtained his Masters in computer science from NYU, proceeded through Princeton’s PhD program in music composition, and was later recruited for a software engineering position at Google, where he has worked since 2011.
I am a Canadian artist, composer and multi-instrumentalist named Rob McAllister. Music has always been a huge part of my life. I began learning to play the piano around the age of 7. This started me on the path of joining bands, exploring other instruments, and ultimately choosing to pursue a career in music. In 2012, I graduated from the Audio Production Program at the Harris Institute in Toronto and began working at a music publishing company. In the off-hours, when not working there, I was honing my composition skills and growing my personal catalog. I recently left the company to go full-time with my music-writing career, marketing myself as Music Within. Under this name, I write albums in a variety of styles. Ultimately going forward I want to be making music as an instrumental artist, working with live musicians to create exceptional compositions that people love.

Danish composer Frederik Snæland creates piano pieces as his way to reflect over the daily life, where inspiration often comes from episodes that can be difficult to put words on. Frederik has found peace at the piano, to let sadness and frustration be channeled into beautiful compositions.
Lou Rogai is an artist and composer. He has fronted the group Lewis & Clarke since 2003, producing a signature sound of lush, long-form songwriting. Through the process of creating orchestral arrangements for his songs, he became immersed in the instrumental aspect of story-telling. His first string quartet, “Implications in D Major” was released in June of 2018 and featured on WNYC’s New Sounds. It is the first in a five-movement sequence of music for chamber orchestra. He is currently at work writing, collaborating, producing, and completing a new Lewis & Clarke LP. He lives and works in Pennsylvania, USA, near a river between two mountains.
My name is Eamonn Watt, aka The Virtual Conductor and I’m the one and only composer for Virtually Conducted Productions! I’m 25 years old and I live in the Shetland Islands, the most northern isles of the UK. I have received a First Class Applied Music Degree from the University of the Highlands and Islands in August 2016 . Along with composition, I am a drummer and percussionist of many genres. I’ve performed in rock bands, heavy metal bands, funk bands and traditional Scottish music sessions.
I started making compositions during my last years in high school in 2010 and became fully realised in 2012 during my first year in college where I created my debut virtual classical album, Bonhoga. I successfully launched this album at the Bonhoga Gallery where it received high amounts of acclaim from music fans ranging from classical music lovers to heavy metal enthusiasts.
I use Bandcamp as my main hub for showing these musical works as it does take me a while to compile together a completed album of musical works and I like showing what completed songs I have so far. I post work-in-progresses of compositions and even some non-classical music as well. https://thevirtualconductor.bandcamp.com
