My name is James Alexander Pavlic or Alex for short and I am a 26 year old musician/composer with a BA in Music Production from Malone University that loves stretching creative boundaries with my musical works. My music crosses stylistic boundaries and has a bit of everything meshed into a lush musical feast. Though I desire to write music for my own primary instrument (the guitar), I really enjoy writing music for various instrumental ensembles and large orchestras. As of now, I am currently seeking full-time entry-level employment along my degree and my goal is to get into anything with film scoring, game scoring, or anything that involves musical creation in any form; although, I am very open to learning anything I can to help myself out in the professional music world. Now, I currently have three of my best works registered with the Copyright Office and am hoping to get them published in the future and having one made into a ballet with professional choreography. Recently, I was placed as a finalist in the Great American Song Contest in top 17 out of 1600 worldwide contestants in the instrumental category for my chamber work Balloon Ride, a whimsical melodic feast that is creating a memorable musical legacy of a balloon on a wild journey. In that journey, the balloon encounters a tornado, thunderstorm, snowstorm, and comfortable weather. At the end, the balloon reaches the home stretch and the tension rises as it strives for home and soon, it lands and all is well! Below is my musical work Balloon Ride and one of my other pieces for your listening pleasure. In time, I will be expanding my site with my other compositions, audio files, anything else, and possible PDF downloads of the score. God's richest blessings!
