Oren Productions is owned and operated by Derek Oren. Derek has been sampling, editing, and arranging orchestral music ever since he was 14 years old. With the advancement of technology in the past few years, it's now possible to create highly realistic orchestral works just from samples. Derek takes advantage of this technology to create and edit his music.
Oren Productions was founded in 2007 but I have been arranging, composing, and doing sound design since 1994.
I sample and edit out of my home.
Jeremy Robson was my inspiration for starting to sample with the new current technology. But other influences classically are: Howard Shore, Elliot Goldenthal, Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, Nobuo Uematsu, Dmitri Shostakovich, Gustav Mahler, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and others.
