About me - MUSIC!

A bit about me, Stephen DeVore!:

Before Film... there was music!

I've been making music since they told me I sang a National Anthem at Age 2. Haha. Piano recital by Age 7 or 8. First lyrics at Age 11. First song around age 14-15. First Classical music before Age 18. Tons of songs from 18 on! Both Secular and Spiritual!

After 10+ years of making songs and pieces on Guitar or Piano, I took college Music Theory. Then a DEGREE in Audio Engineering. Then: Composition, Arranging, MIDI, Songwriting, and Film Scoring.

Also sang both Tenor and Bass in 4 Choirs, including the UW / University of Washington's University Singers, Choir of the Sound (COTS), SC College Concert Choir, and Shoreline Evening Jazz Choir. But I do

Love singing Lead Vocals and harmony.

Let's make music!

More MUSIC Details!


I have been making Songs since I was 11, and making Music since shortly thereafter. In college I took Music Theory, and took Film Scoring via Continuing Education. I also took several Songwriting workshops. I even got Certificates and Degrees related to Music because I loved to fluidly compose music!

Playlist: See just below.

Degrees (3.9 & 3.89) and several Certificates related to Studio-Audio and MIDI - in part, to help me record my own music - I have enjoyed this process. A big love has been in Editing others' music (examples way below). And I have at times enjoyed Music Mixing and Music Recording because I COMPOSE! More about all that elsewhere here.

Because I have Degrees (3.9 & 3.89) and several Certificates related to Audio/Sound/MIDI, I started here first in Film, in 2014, doing Sound Mixer and Boom Operator. My big love, though, is in Music Mixing and Music Recording because I COMPOSE! More about that elsewhere here.

EDITING (Video: Film & Television)

I have done it, and can edit - and have taken editing classes, and have used a number of editors - but my first love is Production!

ACTOR & MUSICIAN - Voice / Character Voices / Acting / Singing.

I don't know how many times I was told I should be an Actor for the wonderful/fun fantasy-character voices I did - and for dynamic reading-aloud skills - until I finally went beyond the audited-courses in Drama in college to take dozens of local and online Acting workshops and classes!

I then played Lead Actor, Supporting Actor, and Background in several Films, Ads, TV shows, and Music Videos.

As an adult, for fun, I helped choreograph and perform a story-dance; and when I was a teen, I danced on the 5th Avenue Theatre stage (ballet) which I had taken lessons for as a boy.

As an adult I also performed in many concerts, some solo (Singer), and some as a group (Piano and Vocal) and in several choirs (Jazz, Classical, Holiday, and Pops), from Bass to Tenor (Baritone). (I also composed and recorded.)

Award-Winning Executive Producer:

Awards won while Executive Producer include Best Picture, Best in City, and others.

I started Producing/Directing in college when taking a Television Studio Production course in 1997, and then worked in Television as a professional Camera Operator for years. I also turned in Additional Music for Score in 2001. And then I finally moved into Filmmaking and narrative-TV etc. for which I have awards and many credits as Producer and other positions, since 2014.

I started doing camera in college when taking a Television Studio Production course in 1997, and then worked in Television for years as a professional Camera Operator. Later, I worked in Film.

Since then I have taken many courses in Lighting and Camera, and worked on many projects - as AC, DP, and other Camera (Photography and G&E) - and have enjoyed many aspects!

I started as a teen, playing with my Dad's film-based camera - even attempting - Ha! - to shoot some actual film - and failing! lol. But after taking Photography and Television Studio Production in college, I moved into Television as a professional Camera Operator for years ("exciting" Government stuff), and eventually came to do narrative-Filmmaking and Documentary. I also worked in other positions doing: Music Videos; Narrative, Game- and Comedy- Television; Documentary-type projects; Commercial/Advertising; and "Corporate". Yet... My love for Camera (and Music) is a first love!

Plus years of work as a Camera Operator for Television, on a Government Channel.

When I was a boy and after, for fun I composed music and did songwriting. And danced. Later, I even dabbled in film and drama.

As an adult, I became a multi-instrumentalist Musician and Singer, Lead Actor, Camera operator for television, professional filmmaker, and Multimedia content creator & editor!

I helped so many people on their projects, and have worked on project types, such as: Features, Narratives, Commercials/Ads, Music Videos, Documentary (as DP), Movies, Television shows, Episodic, Webseries, and many, many Shorts as a Professional or Indie helper!

I have also done a ton of Music stuff!


In addition to making and recording my own music (Singing, Composing, and Playing), for fun I have edited, sweetened, spotted, or mixed: Rock/Alternative, Pop, Jazz, Dance/Disco, Adult Contemporary, Soundtrack, Big Band, Vocal Jazz, commercials, sfx-to-video, and MY originals!


For fun, I edited, sweetened, spotted, or mixed the following (examples)
  • Led Zeppelin (Early Metal, Hard Rock, Rock, and Soft Rock): At least two: "In the Evening"; "Achilles Last Stand".
  • Nine Inch Nails (Rock/Alternative): "Only".
  • Stevie Wonder (Wonderful): At least two: "Sir Duke"; "Another Star".

  • to list a few, with more below.


In various venues and studios, I have recorded or helped record:
A number of people, groups, and bands, from Pop and Rock to Choir-with-Orchestra, to help create their artistry as musical artists.

I began in Television in 1998, contributed Additional Music for Score in 2001, and became involved in Filmmaking and Film-Acting in 2014, after starting Studio-recording in the '90s.

I have been composing songs and music since I was a boy, and recording since I was a teen (or before), and enjoy recording/mixing/editing and/or sweetening/mastering my own compositions and songs, and others' music too!

I have perhaps enjoyed mixing - and also enjoyed editing famous bands and famous songs - the most. But...

every project is its own world....

I have training in:
  • Music wisdom for: Song-making, Songwriting, Music Theory, Pop Music Theory, Film Scoring, and music performance.
  • Filmmaking and Acting, having taken over 100 related classes, workshops, and seminars since 2014 (and more before that); and having worked on dozens and dozens of projects (even projects on Amazon Prime, Showtime, HBO Max, and others).
  • PLUS: Degrees in MIDI Music Production and Audio Engineering, graduating with Honors, along with the UW/University of Washington's Sound Production Certificate, plus several Certificates from The RecW / The Recording Workshop, Digidesign/AVID, and others.
  • I can SING, play multiple instruments (PIANO/KEYBOARDS, and guitar), and can successfully sound-out other instruments using keyboard and modules.
  • I took college Music Theory, Composition, Arranging, even two Film Scoring programs, plus (my current LOVE) many Songwriting classes!
  • Because... I LOVE to compose music and songs, and to write lyrics!

TOOLS - Some of the music/recording tools used:

I have recorded, mixed, edited, sequenced, and notated using:
  • Multitracks/Recorders (both analog and digital) and other recorders (many), such as: Pro Tools (ProTools), SoundEdit (Macromedia), GarageBand, Audacity, Audition, Cubase; and have also owned Acid, Reason, etc.
  • Sequencers (MIDI): hardware and software sequencers: e.g., MOTU Performer, Cakewalk/Sonar, Roland MC-500;
  • Notation applications: Finale (PC & Mac), Personal Composer (Mac), Sibelius;
  • Also: Film & TV gear and software (numerous);
  • Also: Location recorders: e.g., Sound Devices, Zoom, Tascam, etc.;
  • Also: Various media: e.g., reel-to-reel, ADAT, DAT, CD-R, and even cassette!
  • And other applications and/or hardware: whether for Recording, MIDI, Photography, Cinematography and/or Video.
