Derek Palmer Music Experience and Vision:

Derek Palmer is a musician, composer and producer from the US. He writes a multitude of styles and types of music, ranging from electronic to film score and from pop to dance music. He started Derek Palmer music with one vision in mind; to share music with the world. Derek has plenty of musical background and experience. He studied music courses all through school, as well as had private musical lessons.

Derek also has 20 plus years of percussion and drumming experience, 10 plus years of piano experience and has knowledge of many other instruments (brass, woodwinds, assorted percussion, strings). He also has a skillset involving synth production and hybrid elements. The quality in music is always very high, as Derek sets extremely high standards for himself, his music and his abilities. Derek Palmer Music is divided into two main focuses; Music for Film and Trance Productions.

        Music For Film:
"Music for Film" is exactly what it says it is. Music cues for film, games, trailers and advertising. In most cases, work in this area involve the style of trailer music. Music cues designed specifically for use with film and game trailers. Usually, these cues contain high energy or emotional themes mixed with hybrid elements on occassion. Everything can be covered here; be it an orchestral cue with epic themes and screaming choirs to something softer such as gentle pianos and strings. Derek has had numerous clients and work ranging from video game scoring to commercials to product promotions, film trailers and short filmes. "Music for Film" is mostly sold through (a marketplace of Envato) and is available for licensing. Most custom music falls into this category of audio. Custom music, scores and licensing are available (contact Derek for details).

        Trance Productions:
"Trance Productions" are offical tracks produced by Derek that are released to labels and major digital stores and distrubuting services. There tracks mainly focus on the electronic side of the musical spectrum, specifically Trance, Uplifting Trance and Melodic Trance. The main focus of his Trance productions is to bring beautiful and melodic themes with driving basslines and beats as well as huge buildups and breakdowns. This give the listener a more "euphoric" type of feeling while listening to them. These tracks are designed to be played in clubs with DJ's so there are extended intros and outros to help while mixing. Derek has been supported by some of the biggest DJ's in the trance scene today, including, but not limited to; Armin Van Buuren (A State of Trance), Aly & Fila (Future Sound of Egypt), Ben Gold, Paul Van Dyk, Manual Rocca, ReOrder, M.I.K.E. and many more.

"Derek is not only a great guy, but also a great communicator who not only takes instruction well in terms of achieving what is asked for but also adds his own creative slant to the project as a whole. I couldn't ask for a better composer to work with. Again: Great communicator, great creative vision (often able to bounce off each other to create the best score possible) and in general a great guy. Hope to work with Derek again someday soon and would instantly recommend him to anyone looking for an awesome soundtrack to complement their film! Thanks again Derek!"

He is a guy that goes above and beyond. I haven't yet found something that he can't do. Just phenomenal."
