ToneDeF & The ElectroMetal Minstrels


I am a software engineer by profession, amateur composer by inclination. I am influenced musically by what I listen to, which consists of hard rock, hair metal, synthpop, progressive rock/metal, new age electronic, techno/trance, and the Classics (especially Romantic and Baroque). It is not unusual to hear tiny shades of professional works within my own amateur ones -- I consider it an homage to the truly talented.

A guilty pleasure of mine is recreating the music of classic computer/video games utilizing modern synthesized and sampled sounds. My first submitted production was a re-imagining of the main theme music from the classic LucasArts game, "Ballblazer".

Although I have chosen "ToneDeF" as my handle, rest assured that I am not actually "tone deaf".

Who exactly are "The ElectroMetal Minstrels"? They are the various synthesizers and sound modules that serve as the virtual musicians "performing" on each track.
