You know, I think we are all influenced by classical and film composers alike. Whether it be Mozart or Hans Zimmer, we have all followed and listened to the masters. I was just curious if anyone has any influences outside of the norm. I know for myself for example, I have many influences from Progressive Rock for example. A lot of times when I am creating music, I find myself subconsciously thinking of some progressive piece from RUSH, or maybe those awesome twin guitars from QUEEN. I think it can lead to some interesting new ways of creating music for media. Anyways, I was just curious if anyone else does the same.
