Hi! I'm Utho! 😘
I'm a hobbyist musician, aiming to write enjoyable music that speaks to your imagination!
Whilst attempting to hone my craft i dabble in a variety of styles, so if you like what you're hearing feel free to tag along!

[📊Update📌] - I'm changing my weekly upload schedule every Friday to a "When It's Done" approach going forward.
Currently i've got way too much work irl to justify spending an extra 30 hours every week writing music. I'll still be at it daily though! Just at a slower pace.
The playlists on our channel were falling behind so i updated them!
Now there are 3 official lists/series going forward;
1; "Epic Orchestral Music", which is of course the bread and butter of this channel.
2; "Orchestral Music", for songs that aren't epic nor atmospheric. Whatever lands in between can be found here.
3; "Ambient Orchestral Music", for those who just wanna chill.
From now on i'll be launching my weekly music videos on Friday at 4PM EST instead of Thursday at 4AM EST.
This'll better allow European viewers to zone out with a track the evening before the weekend, as well as be much better suited for the American demographic 🍻
Woo! Thanks for all the support on the new Insight visualizer and instrumentation improvements you guys! Everything is going superbly again after the channel reboot and the numbers are a great sign that we're ready to truck on like never before! 💖🚀

"Dying Star" isn't quite dead just yet! ;)
This fan-favorite is getting a complete re-orchestration pass and will be slightly extended to have a more interesting outro.
Please refer to this Tweet for a quick in-DAW preview of the writing process: https://twitter.com/UthoRiley/status/...
I imagine the ETA for this to be roughly 2 weeks, so for next week i hope you guys like drums, cause you're getting some very loud drums! And after that, Dying Star is ready to... Finally die? xD Or get a rebirth? Heck, i dunno anymore, but stay tuned!
Redid my thumbnails once more (srry, last time, i promise!) and removed the white sides.
They looked neat in standard YouTube, but wasn't well thought through as they fell completely flat in dark mode, as well as when shared around to places such as Discord (or any other platform with a dark background).
The same images were kept however, now just without the white sides.
In case you're wondering where the new uploads are at, i'm currently held up on a bunch of other projects that left little to no time for hobby writing here on the channel.
Those projects are/were:
Daymar Rally commercials
Tumbril Cyclone commercial contest
Collaborations with fellow Star Citizen cinematic YouTubers
Random little bits and bobs, Extended mixing and mastering R&D/hardware integration
Thank you for your patience!
There will be new stuff again... Sometime in the future, lol...
Oh wait! We have a word for that! *scrapes voice* "SOON™!"
Nailed it >:3
Thanks to Nathan (LovBlueFox) i've got my own website y'all!!! Go check it out! :D
It has my biography, free music downloads, a personal video section, contact info and more to come!

It's still in Beta so will take a while... But oil up, lol.
Thank you for your patience
