omgspectra said: Is 'Dream Again' a reference to 'Angels and Demons'? The verses in 'Dream' sound like each character from A&D has their own part to say. Am I looking into this too far or was it intentional?
As I always say, my songs have many meanings and they’re left open ended so people can find their own meaning in them. But Angels and Demons didn’t influence it directly, no.

Was this intentional or a simple mistake? Either way I find it fascinating and it in no way takes away from the rest of the song.
That’s a synth actually, with some ambient high-end frequencies that sound like “sparkles” or “magic” or whatever you’d like to hear them as. Really, they mostly do just sound like keys. xD

I usually do, and I love to (I play Gmod with random fans sometimes) but my friends list is currently full. :(
Anonymous said: Would you mind sharing what plugin you use for your strings?
I use Kontakt 5 with a plethora of string sample libraries. Symphobia and Session Strings make up most of my “filler” strings, background chords and such, but my favorite are the Embertone Libraries. Not many people use those, but they’re the best I’ve found as far as realism goes.

Those weren’t mine actually, I grabbed them off a guy that I met earlier. xD
Anonymous said: A sheet music book? That's awesome! Can you try that with 'Someone Like Me', 'Something To Give' and 'Where I Belong' maybe? I'd really appreciate it!
Something to Give is wicked simple, as it’s just literally five chords through the song, but the other two are definitely going in there!

Nope, but Linkin Park definitely was!
Anonymous said: Have you ever considered releasing the sheet music for 'Find Me'? It is quite possibly the most beautiful piece I've ever heard on a piano and would very much like to replicate it.
I’m thinking about making an actual book of sheet music, because people seem to really want certain songs, especially Find Me. That’ll probably be my next merch project. xD
Also, this is an open invitation for people to suggest music they want in a sheet music book.
