Why do you call your music Cinematic Sounds?

A look at why I call my moody instrumental music Cinematic Sounds.

Cinematic Sounds is what I came up with when trying to describe my music. I was having a hard time with categorizing the tracks within the standard music genres.

So, I decided to step away from the genres and use my own description.  Cinematic Sounds fits the tracks because the sounds themselves spark the listener's imagination with imagery.  I've played some of my tracks for friends and the first thing they all said was, 'I see...' 

When I listen to my music, I see imagery, whether it's picturing something happening as the song plays, or seeing myself somewhere doing something other than just listening.  My music sparks imagery.  Plus, my goal is to one day have my music featured in films and video games - playing more to the cinematic aspect of those industries.

It's interesting to note that I don't have an image in my head when I create the tracks.  The images only come after I listen to the finished product.

Taurus - ur stuff is the *ting* man i'm tellin ya. I also learned that your a drummer - me to! When I was a kid I used to play around with the piano/keyboard in the 80's/90's (26yr old now). But I can't read music - I play by ear, just like you. You hit the pads & keys, (i gotta mpd32 to!;) in the same manner as me - it flows. I reckon we can play steel drums - even tho we never have! or maybe you have - i don't know! I'm luvin your youtube flix - keep em comin dood. Peace bruv Andy D, birmingham UK.
