Living in Kiev, being self-taught, composing high-quality, creative music, and going for walks with family. Today we meet Ivan Shykalov (EgoDeus) from AudioJungle.
I live in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. I am 29 years old, married, and I have a daughter. I have always been engaged in business, but at the same music is always one of the main of my business. I love writing music.
I belong to AudioJungle. I sell music, soundtracks for games, films and advertising.
In first grade I went to piano lessons, but then changed school and dropped the case. All that I know about how to write music, I learned myself.
My workspace consists of a computer, a MIDI-keyboard M-Audio Axiom-61, an external sound card M-Audio Fast Track, and two monitor speakers 31 thousand Hertz + subwoofer JBL. There is also a studio where I can always work, but usually is enough for me my workplace.
Sometimes there is inspiration, then I quickly compose something. Sometimes there is no inspiration, I have to listen to different music and a beautiful muse comes to me.
Compose music. Make it high quality and creative.
I only upload music to the site, and will begin to promote it when my porfolio will be at least 30 tracks.
I just love these tracks… I do not know why, just like them.
A lot of good, talented composers on the site. I find it difficult to highlight just one.
In my spare time I spend with my family. We go for a walk somewhere, we go to nature, and meet with friends.
