My name is George Victor Olson and I am a self-taught amateur writer artist. Presently, I am doing business as Magnificat Sonnets Music using the artist stage name of Magnificat Sonnets. I am unique in that I study many different genres to explore different rhythm patterns. These include classical, choral, musical theatre, jazz, new age, pop, folk and Latin. As of this date I have produced 12 albums featuring 20 suites and 199 titles. By suite I simply mean that a common theme was pursued during compositional development. I may also be unique in that I am an auditory composer who is writing music by ear. The process of writing music by ear is an auditory technique whereby an artist transfers musical ideas directly from his mind to computer notational software. Here the compositions are further developed and orchestrated until a final draft is derived.

To lean more about me and my music, simply perform a internet search under either the stage name or real name. Both produce links to a variety of internet venues that showcase my work. I have also summarized every link where I have a presence under my Google Profile. Every title, album, insert, score, lyric, script and video is on the internet. In addition, I have written a document on the topic of writing music by ear. This article is available for free on my website.

My hometown is Allendale, New Jersey, USA. I was born in Paterson in 1957. My mother loved Broadway and this was my first and most influential exposure to music. As a boy I studied piano and guitar for three years. At 17, I attended a state music college, but failed due to inadequate musical training. This was the last time that I played a instrument. After this, I studed and pursued a career in businness until 1999 when I became disabled. Then, in 2007, I indirectly stumbling across the auditory approach of writing music while trying to recall inventions written in my youth. Since then, I have pursued music on a full time basis as an independent writer, producer, publisher and label.
