Composer John Ross Jesensky was recently profiled in an interview by the Huffington Post. Jesensky has seen his work used in an increasing amount of movies and scores as seen by his IMDB profile.
From the HuffPo piece…
“I had known for a while that I wanted to play the piano just like Elton John or Billy Joel. When I finally convinced my parents to let me take lessons, I was thrilled! It was when I bought a cassette of the Jurassic Park soundtrack by John Williams that I instantly knew what I wanted to do with my life. Somehow, I was going to find a way to write music as gorgeous as what I was hearing on my Walkman!”
You know you’re a composer when you can name the composer on the Jurassic Park soundtrack! Also of note, Elton John and Billy Joel are pretty big shoes to fill!
Jesensky can be found many places online including his wordpress blog where he shares his thoughts, such as Music Has Power among others. John Ross Jesensky also has his professional site that he keeps updated with his latest work. Jesensky also maintains (albeit infrequently) a Twitter account showing various passions unrelated to just the piano and composition of music.
