"Life is like music; it must be composed by ear, feeling, and instinct, not by rule." This is a great quote from Paracelsus that sums up the way I approach music. My name is Deminicus McKinnon, and I’m a music composer. I’m currently a Full Sail University student living in the great music city of Memphis, Tennessee.
I started producing music in February of 2004. I only got into producing music because the producer I was working with at the time moved away. So, I bought a Boss DR-5 at the age of 18 and found out I had a serious love for music production. In 2013, I realized I couldn’t teach myself anything else about music production, but I knew there was more to it. That August, I started on a mission at Full Sail to learn what I didn’t know and became the music composer I am today.
