Magnificat Sonnets is the stage production name used by freelance writer George Victor Olson. The artist is unique in that he is a self-taught writer who studies several different genres in order to explore different rhythm patterns. These include classical, choral, musical theatre, jazz, new age, pop, folk and Latin. To date the artist has produced 12 full albums organized in 20 suites and consisting of 199 titles.
The artist may also be unique in that he is an auditory composer who is writing music by ear. This 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. This skill is transferable and may impact the way music is written for years to come. The artist has written a document on the topic of writing music by ear. This article is available for free on his website.

George Victor Olson was born in Paterson, New Jersey in 1957. As a boy he studied piano and guitar for three years. At 17 he attended a music college, but failed due to inadequate musical training. This was the last time that the artist formally played a instrument. Subsequently he was educated in business and pursued a career for 32 years in this capacity before indirectly stumbling across the auditory approach to writing music while trying to recall inventions written in his youth in 2007. Both company and all copyrights date back to this year.
