A. Panacea:
'Aural Panacea.'
Contemporary, classical music led by melodic string ensembles and guitar harmonies with an emphasis on percussion and bass grooves.

I credit much of my sound to an amalgam of composers and music artists, the earliest inspirations drawing from John Williams. Hans Zimmer and his school of successful proteges like John Powell, Harry Gregson-Williams and Mark Mancina only increased my interest with cinematic music composition. I had also taken a great interest with videogame music composed from the likes of Martin O'Donnell, Bill Brown, Jeremy Soule, Jack Wall and Nobuo Uematsu. Guitar virtuosos with signature chops have also made a major impact on me; John Petrucci, Buckethead, Dimebag Darrell and Mattias Eklundh to name a few.
Now mix all of the above with my passion stemming in heavy metal - from thrash and death to progressive and hardcore - and you have a taste of expectations...

The project is still very much a 'sound in progress,' as I continue to hone my hand with digital music composition, added the old and new sound packages as they come along.

An auditory effort of hope and inspiration, A. Panacea's vision is sought to uplift the spirits for anyone willing to accept the invite.
