David Dang and the Flute of Harmony

David Dang, a composer in Germany, goes by the production name Flute of Harmony. Yes, this does mean he plays the flute. However, he also creates entire scores that are high in quality and production-ready. For example, the composition above, Blossoms, is a very beautiful and touching orchestral piece with a sweet melody line that could greatly dramatize any scene, from a game to a movie to a commercial advertizing change in the world. This is what David had to say during our interview:

1) Tell us about yourself (name, age, country of origin, current country, schooling, etc.)
I'm David Dang (21) from Germany. At the moment I’m studying.

2) What equipment and instruments do you use?
For my compositions I use: Beyerdynamic DT770, Ultimate Ears U700, M-Audio Profire 610, M-Audio Axiom 69, Casio PX 130, Yamaha HS80, Beyerdynamic MC930 (stereoPaired), HighEnd PC

Libs: AudioBro LA Scoring Strings, ProjectSam Symphobia 1&2, ProjectSam TrueStrike 1&2, East West Quantum Leap,  Synphonic Orchestra, East West Quantum Leap RA, CineSamples Drums of War 1&2, CineSamples, CineBrass, SampleLogic Cinematic Guitar, Spectrasonics Omnisphere/Trillian

Flute: Azumi 2000RE

3) I read your mission and goals about having a strong will in your passion for music. What can you say to encourage other musicians?
Music is a language which can be understood by everyone. So don't give up in what you are doing and go forward your own way.
4) What musicians have inspired you?
Joe Hisaishi, Kenji Kawai
5) Random thoughts:

Don't give up on trying to do what you really want to do.
Where there is love and inspiration, we don't think you can go wrong.
Our passion is to compose and play music..That's what we do...

My thoughts on the interview:

Your studying and practice definitely pays off. All of your songs are incredible and you have a lot of nice equipment.

Perhaps the best thing about music is its ability to transcend language barriers. None of us know all the languages of the world, but there are many people that view our music, once it's online, who speak languages we don't understand or speak rather poorly. For example, I know most of the common languages used in the Western Hemisphere, but do not know Japanese or German, yet I understand David's and many other people's music perfectly. Music is a very special thing.

I agree, never give up. Have passion, because you often influence other people more than you would ever realize.
