I cordially invite you to the all new glennforsythe.com! I have created this site for my work as a composer, sound designer, producer and all around audio geekery. Like many I've jumped on the Squarespace bandwagon, which considering I wouldn't like to spend my days futzing with HTML to make something semi-presentable, was a very good choice. Though I wish I was a bit CSS savvy, Google has and always will be an amiable companion for the lazy like me.
After careful deliberation I've added a new component of this site, which is where you are right now-- a blog page! For the longest time I, like as I'm guessing many before me, assumed that the sheer saturation of internet bloggers would topple any newcomers to the fray. Luckily I've given up on that notion, as it now seems to be completely irrelevant to my cause. I want this site to primarily showcase the kind of work that I do, but also serve as a place to share ideas, meet collaborators, prospective clients, and those that have dedicated their lives to creative ambition.
As a composer, there is nothing more exciting than getting a fresh new project or video file on my desktop to score; a brand new canvas just waiting to be brushed. For the days in between however, there is a whole world of ideas, projects and studies that we have to entertain, and in some cases follow as far as the rabbit hole goes. In my experience these side trips have no end, but instead of stumbling down the well, I'd like to embrace the trip with others who also can't stop pursuing their modes of creative output. This is why I invite any and all composers, sound designers, engineers, producers, filmmakers and content creators out there to share their experiences, influences, techniques and passions that makes them work.
This page will contain new projects of mine, but I also want it to be a place to link to other's work that has inspired me in some way. I also would love to share techniques, tutorials and how to's with an emphasis on community input. If there's one thing I know I can spend countless hours on it's digging through tutorials on the Internet! I hope that this becomes a rich source for other composers and sound tinkerers out there, and I am looking forward to hearing from you!
