Whatsupp! I'm Ellie, I currently reside in upstate NY, and I write, perform, and produce my own music. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I started taking group piano lessons at this Yamaha store in this mall when I was four-years-old, but after a few months I switched to taking private lessons. When I was six I began taking violin lessons with the first chair violinist in the NY Philharmonic and since then have been studying classical music. I am originally a modern classical composer, and composed my first crappy little piece as an assignment at group piano when I was four. Since then, I've composed many more pieces.
I started becoming serious about composition when I was around twelve and began studying under a local composer when I was thirteen. Unfortunately, I was only able to study under him for a few months. Over the summer I went to band camp upstate where I was fortunate enough to study under a college professor at a SUNY college for two weeks. I am currently studying with another SUNY college professor that is a little closer.
My modern classical piece "6.5" has been performed three times, and a song "Utopia" I wrote has been performed twice but other than that my pieces have only been performed in front of friends and family. I have recorded a cover of Emarosa's "The Past Should Stay Dead" recently and am in the process of recording a vocal demo that includes two original songs "We Pleaded Insanity and Got Away With Everything" and "Casey's Song Part II." Rough copies are up and ready to be listened to!
While I normally stick to composing modern classical music, I thought that I should expand my composing capabilities, and am currently experimenting with different music genres, and thus this purevolume was created. I'm still working on producing everything, but I'm getting better. :]
I am currently a Music Industry major at the College of St. Rose and am in the process of completing my sophomore year. I like to use this project as a way for me to express myself and I hope that you enjoy my imagination through sound.
