I‘ve been playing rock music in a live band - Moore and More - a tribute to Gary Moore - for ages now - and I‘ve been writing my own music for the same time but never had the opportunity to record it.Due to the Covid lockdowns now the moment had come to get back into the studio and do what has been waiting for years: lay down the ideas, find some fellow musicians and record.Personally I‘m deep ito Prog Rock but when I started recording, I found that my tracks more and more became cinematic - and now they are real epics, just like the impressions they describe.

My name is Alan Špiljak, I‘m a 26 year old IT engineer from Croatia who has a big passion for multimedia and composing music. Composing is one of my favorite ways to express myself and I use it as a way to reach out to people, since words are much more limited compared to music.
Playing piano has been my hobby since elementary school at which time I’ve learned the basic skills which helped me to transfer all my thoughts to melody.
Looking back and seeing all the process, all those melodies, I think I’ve finally found my path in this world. At this point I have few movies behind me that were shown in cinemas all around the world. I’ve recorded some soundtracks for short films and my music was featured in the Asian museum, UN podcast, and much more.
My way of composing is oriented towards ambient cinematic music and I’m a big fan of Olafur Arnalds, Snorri Hallgrímsson, Max Richter, and Thomas Newman type of music. (Source: Official Website)
