My name is Eamonn Watt, aka "The Virtual Conductor" and I'm the one and only composer for Virtually Conducted Productions! I'm 25 years old and I live in the Shetland Islands, the most northern isles of the UK. I have received a First Class Applied Music Degree from the University of the Highlands and Islands in August 2016 . Along with composition, I am a drummer and percussionist of many genres. I've performed in rock bands, heavy metal bands, funk bands and traditional Scottish music sessions.
I started making compositions during my last years in high school in 2010 and became fully realised in 2012 during my first year in college where I created my debut virtual classical album, Bonhoga. I successfully launched this album at the Bonhoga Gallery where it received high amounts of acclaim from music fans ranging from classical music lovers to heavy metal enthusiasts.
Some of my accolades are:
• Over 100 compositions created with 8 albums, all available on thevirtualconductor.bandcamp.com
• Instrumental Winner of the UK Songwriting Competition in 2016 with "Overture Tsirk Durakov"
• Three-time Instrumental Finalist and Seven-time Semifinalist in UK Songwriting Competition 2018..
• Two-time Instrumental Songwriting Finalist in International Songwriting Competition 2015-2017
