Composer Michael Whalen has a wide-ranging musical background that includes classical music.  He's worked on more than 800 TV and film scores, thousands of commercials and numerous TV themes and video games.  Michael is also a world-renowned recording artist and producer with 32 solo and soundtrack recordings to his credit.

In talking with me about his new album "Sacred Spaces," Michael expressed a desire to break down the barriers of musical genres.  While some might describe similar works as ambient music, he explains his style is a little different and contains a lot of melodic and harmonic material, in addition to setting a particular tone and atmosphere.

Michael has a vibrant personality and is a leader in the music world today.  I hope you enjoy our entertaining discussion.

Yours in good music,
