My name is Tricia and I'm a composer, musician and recording artist from Sweden. I release music under the name Simply Avoranic.
I love to compose songs and record them!
I have composed my own music since I was about 14 years old. I like both electronic music, synthesizer, acoustic and classical music.
In 2017 I released my first track on Bandcamp, "Dark musings", and in 2020 I released my first own album on Spotify etc called "A Midnight Stars Album". Before 2017 I published music on mostly Youtube, Soundcloud and similar sites.
I'm planning on continue to create music and I'm learning and becoming a better musician all the time! I'm always working on new music.
I have Autism and I communicate and express myself through music. That's my main reason for composing songs and even create music.
I have had a difficult life due to my condition and I have been badly hurt in the past - abuse, trauma etc - and I use music to recover and heal.
About Autism and creating music to express feelings!
This website is about music - I know, obvious right? - but it's also about why I create music. I have been diagnosed with Autism and several other conditions (psychological and physical) and that's the reason I create music. I use it to cope with my condition and disability and I'm also using it as therapy.
Why is this important, you might ask. It is important because without my disability I'm very sure I wouldn't make music. I'm also sure I wouldn't be able to teach myself instruments and play by ear. Sure, I do know music theory too, but very much is done by ear. I don't think I would have those abilities without a disability. I don't think I would have the strength to practice so much without my autistic brain too, because if I weren't autistic I don't think I would have the passion and patience. And I would certainly not be able to compose my own songs without my autistic brain!
I don't say people can't be musically talented or making music without autism or a disability, but in MY CASE I don't think I would be half as good without Autism. Why? You might ask. Because I just feel the music came to me because I needed it. I don't live a regular life at all. I have carers whom help me in my home, I go to therapy, I have medical treatments, hospital visits regularly and so on. It became kind of a grief to me when I realized I couldn't live normally. So the music came to me to help me. I started to heal and recover when I used music to do so.
I don't know how to call authorities on the phone, I don't know how to swim or ride a bicycle. I don't have the capacity to always take care of my apartment. I need help with a lot of things. But I can compose music, play by ear, learn instruments fast, and even tho my music isn't perfect, I can create it. It's the blessing I received to compensate for all the things I can't. That doesn't mean I'm perfect - like I said - but I'm Tricia and I follow the path that was made for me.
This website is dedicated to my music and my conditions. That's why I have decided to include both music and self-help/self care stuff on this page. On the download page, you can for example download my own designed self care planner (coming soon!). You can also read about how it is to live with disabilities in my blog here.
This is a musician website and a website for music therapy, healing and a journey to recover!
