Abandoned toys is the work of a modern classical music composer who works within the realms of new age music, dark ambient music, film music, and experimental classical music. With an extensive amount of classical training, a degree in music composition, and a powerful interest in the ways technology is having an impact on the field of classical music, this new age music composer is at the forefront of the industry, changing the way classical music is perceived.
7and5 is a splicing of genres where New Age beauty, meets Smooth Electro style, with memorable melodies and hooks like that of a great pop song.
Building a new direction in instrumental music, based on the groundwork laid by artists such as Ryan Farish, Blue Stone, William Orbit, Jon Hopkins, and others, 7and5 is achieving new heights in song structure and production value rarely heard in New Age music.
While not necessarily interested in creating "spa" music ; which by design is meant not to evoke any emotion other than relaxation, 7and5 reaches the listener with a soothing ease, but uniquely applies emotion to the mix; both enigmatic and uplifting… making 7and5 unlike any other contemporary New Age artist today.
