In The Midst Of Any Rise To Fame, Infamy May Ensue...

One of my parents' favourite sayings is that you have your whole life to create your defining work, the one thing that pushes you over all the initial hurdles and onwards to fame and success (and the hurdles that you'll encounter from there).  That one work you created or of which you were a part is what gets you there. You have your whole life to achieve it up until that point. From there, you only have twenty minutes to achieve your next, and so on and so on... Consider that during the time you're building yourself. Your life and career up to that achievement whatever it may be. Graduation. Your dream career. A successful business. Your marriage. Your first child. Your family. Your directorial debut. Your first book to sell a million. Your first starring role in a major blockbuster motion picture. For everyone its different. Pursuing a life dream means something different to each and every one of us. However, for some, it does put you in the public eye and under scrutiny

A Lady's Prerogative III: Singularity - Because we're home

This is a concept piece I created for the book A Lady's Prerogative III: Singularity. It has lyrics but no vocalist as of yet. I'd try to sing it myself but I think that I'd probably do the song a great injustice. It is definitely an homage in terms of style to the Beatles during the later part of their musical journey as a band.

Digital Senses (Plucked Counterpoint)

A combination of simple linear melodies layered over top of a syncopated beat. Melodies hand played on top of a few loops.

Electronic, Ambient

Silence Between Notes (Mood Muzak)

Ambient, some tracks hand played and others with loops. Peaceful mood with a mildly intense bridge.

Electronic, Ambient

The Butterfly Dragon II: What Different Eyes See (Main Theme)

Main theme from The Butterfly Dragon II: What Different Eyes See. Composed note by note on a midi keyboard without any loops. Pentatonic melody and corresponding counterpoint common in much Eastern music to really give it that feel. Like an East Asian tour.

World Music, Soundtrack

Just Illusion

No loops. This piece of music was written and is played on a keyboard. There is no (real) guitar in the piece. Its all synthesizer played with a guitar technique. A small string pad and touches of electric piano.

Acoustic, Digital Guitar (There is no real guitar in this song, its a keyboard believe it or not)

More to come...
