Born in England in 1978, Hetoreyn's early interest in film music began when he was very young. As an avid film viewer, he was especially inspired by the music of Jerry Goldsmith, John Barry, and John Williams. By the age of 16 as a self-taught pianist, he decided to begin writing his own compositions. He enrolled at Weston-super-mare (UK) College of Technology to study drama, acting and music, where he developed new skills in studio techniques and midi sequencing that would propel him into the wider world of musical composition. In 1999, he graduated from college with diplomas in BTEC Performing Arts and Music Technology.
As Chief Composer and Engineer at Bristol Television and Film Services (BTFS) in Bristol (UK), he composed music for two feature films and a number of other music projects. During this period he also began composition and production of other personal and commercial projects. Working with the new VSL (Vienna Symphonic Library) software and sound libraries, Hetoreyn soon became a recognized expert in this exciting and innovative new field. Hetoreyn’s popular Podcast on VSL techniques has gained many regular followers over the years and has included interviews with VSL staff and provided many key ingredients on how composers can get the best out of the VSL software suite. Since 2005, Hetoreyn has created a unique palette of orchestral music for film, TV and Internet, and he has published 7 albums, which have been aired on radio stations and Internet Radio around the world. In addition to his compositional talents, his technical skills are also widely sought throughout the industry, through his professional support services for orchestration, digital studio set up and sound engineering.
His most recent projects are the astonishing Symphony "Winds of Time", "Tales of the Thorns" and the new Progressive / Metal / Electronica album "End of Line", and the independent 'Trek' fan film group Starship Farragut's latest episode "The Price of Anything". All are available here at CD Baby.com
