The music that features in my showreel is entitled "First Snow" by the band Emancipator. Their 2009 album "Soon it will be Cold Enough" is amazing, combining my favourite elements of music to create instrumental soundscapes that get me through the day of animating. This song "Lionheart" was the first song that I heard and it blew me away.
It inspires me to become a better musician, and opened up my eyes (and ears) to different possibilities in my music writing. More music by this amazing band here > http://emancipator.bandcamp.com/
Hope you enjoy!
