Eastwest GHOSTWRITER

$119.60

A ghostwriter is a composer who writes music that will be officially credited to another person. The concept of ghostwriting goes back centuries: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a well-known composer paid to ghostwrite music for wealthy patrons. These days the sound design aspect of composing music has become as important as the notes, chords & rhythms, particularly in the creation of film, game & television soundtracks. While Ghostwriter won`t write the music for you, it has been designed to be a “ghost” collaborator in the compositional process, an invaluable inspirational tool for creating your music.

One of the most eclectic & prolific artists in rock music, Steven Wilson has been writing, recording & producing music continuously since the early nineties. Album releases touring as leader of his band Porcupine Tree & more recently as a solo artist, saw him gain a reputation for his songwriting, experimentation & sonic excellence, resulting in many invitations to work with other artists. Among many things, he has produced several albums for Grammy Award-winning Swedish metal band Opeth & he sung on UK drum & bass band Pendulum`s UK number one album “Immersion”. He started a solo career in 2009 & his most recent solo album “The Raven that Refused to Sing” was recorded at EASTWEST Studios with legendary recording engineer Alan Parsons at the helm. Wilson has become known for his 5.1 surround sound mixes, starting with his own projects, but more recently for remixing the catalogues of King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Roxy Music, XTC & Yes, among others. His surround sound mixes have been Grammy nominated on four occasions & he has twice won “Album of the Year” at the Surround Music Awards. Wilson is seen by many as the predominant progressive rock musician in the world today & in 2012 he won “Guiding Light” at the “Progressive Music Awards” 2012, following this in 2013 with another win for best album for “The Raven that Refused to Sing”.
