Hi, my name is Daphne and
I’m the creator of the “I Love My Mac”
I have a diploma in classical piano performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and also studied jazz piano, film scoring and orchestration for several years each.
I especially loved my studies in jazz because it opened up a whole new world for me - a world which allows the artist to be more creative and therefore opens many more possibilities in the area of composition.
Orchestration is also one of my big favourites because it puts a very powerful set of tools in the composer’s hand. Thanks to the advances in modern computer technology, composers now have the affordable luxury of creating music in any genre that tickles their fancy, and for any number of instruments.
Prior to January of 2004, I was using Cubase to create my music and for my orchestral works, I used notation software. Since GarageBand became available however, I have been using it to create my music almost exclusively. It is so simple to use, yet so powerful with all its many features, that it really is the software of choice if what you really want to do is to capture your musical ideas right out of the hat.
I have a large repertoire of musical creations, from pop to rock to jazz to orchestral to children’s to theatrical and spoken word to classical, so if you liked this song, and you want to hear all the different things that I do, head on over to my namesake website www.daphna.ca. I’m sure there is something there for everyone, no matter what your musical tastes.
Writing music is what I do for my livelihood, so if you are one of the many fans who have enjoyed “I Love My Mac” or if you are a new fan, please head on over to the iTunes Music Store to purchase my songs that are now available there.
In addition to that I’m always working on new material and if you leave me your email address in the guestbook, I’ll keep you posted with occasional news updates.
Thanks again and I hope you enjoy.
