Who is ‘This’?

My name is Bruce Edward Smith. I’m a composer and musician, currently based near Dayton, Ohio USA. I started out in the Dayton area music scene in the 1970s and 1980s as a drummer, and became interested in electronic music along the way. My latest creative chapter began in 2012. when I started creating stock music for commercials, presentations, documentaries, podcasts and other media. My work has been licensed on five continents, and used in productions, including for National Geographic.

I’ve also released music for your moods, including:

  • upbeat – EPs Excelsior Volumes I-II, singles “Dream Catcher” and “Quest for Transformation”
  • mellow – downtempo EP Aquarian Eyes and ambient album Circadia
  • holiday – single “Snow Globe”

Most recently, I’ve begun to branch out into writing. I’m currently doing primary research for a book I hope to write about the Dayton Triangles, one of the founding members of the National Football League, who won the first game played between two teams in the league (then called the American Professional Football Association). My goal is to have the book in publication by the 100th anniversary of that game on October 3, 2020.
