  1. On this piece I started with a rather long complex key shifting chord progression.. I created clarinet melody first. Because the chord progression was so complex, I cut and pasted two sections to repeat, to add continuity to the piece. In the repeat sections, I replayed some instruments, so you wouldn’t notice that it was a cut and paste job. I started with playing improvisations for the length of the piece. I eventually keep carving the improvisation lines into smaller sections. Replacing with other instruments and motifs. After a while I totaled removed the blocked piano chords I started w
  2. Improvisation on ‘In The Air Tonight’ I always wanted to do a cover of Phil Collins ‘In The Air Tonight’.. I think it is an extremely powerful sounding song. It has a haunting quality to it, it almost sounds like it might be a ‘holy’ song. Part of that is a low drone of A through out the song.. It ‘holds’ the piece. As I worked with the song, I realized how important the quality of Phil Collin’s voice and the lyrics were to the piece.. He has a rather plain, slightly nasal quality. But it adds to the emotion. It is an ‘everyday voice, an ‘anybody’s voice’.. He also sing
  3. Here is a treatment of The Long and Winding Road by the Beatles. I took some liberties with Paul's Riffs, just to make the song build more. I extended with some solos. Tried Ringo like drum fills, most of the time, just a kick drum going. Making the drums sparser, leaves so much more room for other parts to get some attention. I listened to the original quite a few times, I wanted to get the ideas, feel and phrases of original, but modify them so as not to be so literal to the original version.. This version has a slight classical and jazz feeling I guess.
  4. Here's a piece I was exploring the accordion.. While I wouldn't normally associate an accordion with snowflakes, it does make me feel like I'm in a log cabin somewhere.. Also exploring looser formats, chordal progression wise.. It gives it a more wandering, less structural feel.
  5. Here's a song I did wth a singer, Seven Moshod. It's RnB, pop, soul I guess you'd call it.. Unlike me, Seven ad-libs constantly, never sings something the same way twice.. I used to be like that, now I feel so constrained, and controlling in creating music.. This I did more ad-libbing, more like my early days of creating music, or when being in a band.. Sometimes the idea of 4 or 5 other guys, just going where they wanted frustrated me (yes, I am a control freak).. But in looking back, it's great to hear music where all the notes came from one mind.. That shows work, attention, inspirat
  6. Here's a piece I just finished (I hope).. Called Island Dreams, I hoped to catch the feeling of lightheartedness, and happiness. It started with more of a Reggae beat, But I modified it back to only a hint of Reggae (organ, flutes part) Island Dreams - Island Dreams Score - https://app.box.com/s/rr9sxhn4v9ccx1xhr2gkbzvnkv1g318z
  7. Here's a piece I did 3 years ago.. Exploring EZ listening, trying to sooth ravaged nervous system, which seems to be so common, as we age, and still try to take the world seriously. I built a sound palette using 'comfort food' sounds.. This way the song was already half way there. I've been interested in the psychological impact of the sound of particular instruments.. I started with the premise there were several instruments in the conversation, each with a similar attitude, but slightly different point to add (specific motifs for each).. Like an accordion, can sound corny, but it a
  8. Here's a piece I just recently finished.. The main motif, is only 4 bars long, which got boring pretty quickly.. I split the riff up between different instruments.. also created variations of it. Then a counterpoint riff also give it further diversity..
