A Season of Inspiration

The past few days have had quite a big effect on me… It might be the atmosphere, the slight breeze, or maybe it’s just me… Whatever it is, it has given me an inspirational whisper…

Makes me think back to the days when the rain subsided and the weather was subdued. It was somewhat of a poetic day, maybe a day for retrospect. Maybe a day for reconciliation. To me the poet and the musician are one. We both express our thoughts the same way, just with another medium. Creativity is sparked and an idea is conveyed, maybe seveal ideas.

It all depends on the day. The winds speak to us differently when we’re not awake.

Synth Dreams is growing!

As I stated in my last blog post, I have continued to grow my “Synth Dreams” album. I now have 10 songs uploaded in total. I am planning on finishing up and uploading several more in the next two weeks. If you haven’t listened to it already, check it out for free on SoundCloud !

 

Here is my last post about “Synth Dreams”.

 

Kind of as a joke, something fun to do, I decided to put together a bunch of songs using synth instruments! I figured why not. At Highland, I used the Roland Fantom G8 to record and mix these songs. The album is called Synth Dreams, and I am continually adding to it! I added a few of my Wind Trios and piano scores as well! For the moment it is only available on SoundCloud. You can check it out here : Synth Dreams 

I hope you enjoy listening, and please share with your friends! To see the newest at Highland, subscribe to everythingmusic90.com !

Un poème en français …

November 10th was a unique day. A bit cooler with a slight breeze, but a sunny day overall. It reminded me of the coming of winter, a season I always anticipate to enjoy. It inspired me to write a poem about it, but this time my thoughts were in french. Don’t worry, I’ll provide a translation, but I think that the french language captures the scene better than the english language can.

 

Un jour ensoleillé …

Le petit vent, c’est froid …

 

Je vois le chemin …

Entre les champs et les arbres …

 

L’herbe est brune et sèche …

L’hiver vient bientôt …

 

Je cache dans ma tête …

Laisse la vie qui passe …

Reste ici ….

 

ENGLISH ————

 

A sunny day …

The slight breeze, a bit cold …

 

I see the pathway …

Between the fields and the trees …

 

The grass is brown and dry …

Winter is coming soon …

 

I hide inside my head …

Leave the life that passes …

Stay here….

Yet another day… 

Yet another day in the life of a crazy composer… Metaphors and similes don’t cut it. With cool breezes and mellow ambiance, comes the soundscape I desire. With new life, and new strife, people never stay the same. I’ve seen the likeness of many faces… Many phases… It all changes.

The story behind “Krazy Kat”

My family has always had numerous amounts of cats. Most of them, if not all, were  named after musicians and poets alike. One cat in particular, Dmitri Shostakovich, loved to hunt and catch birds, mice, and rabbits. Almost every day he would bring in some new “gift”. One day as I was practicing the piano, Dmitri was sitting in the sunlight, acting as if he didn’t care about the music I was playing. I looked at him and told him “Hey, I’m gonna write you a song Dmitri!” And I did! Krazy Kat was written that same day.

The song illustrates Dmitri stretching out in the sun, when all of a sudden, he spots a mouse out of the corner of his cat eye! The chase ensues, and after finally cornering the little mouse, he pleads for mercy. We’re not sure whether or not he ate the little mouse, but the song ends with Dmitri stretching out in the soft sun again.

Now that you know the story, you can listen to the song  for free!

 

 

The sky and it’s gentle breeze…

The sky has blown a wind of inspiration to me these past few weeks. The sky has been full of clouds of diverse shape, and the breeze has been cool. We had a period of deep rain and the sky was overtaken by massive black clouds. Many of the evening views were also bright, with full orange and white colors. These had their own sense of beauty, but in a different way than the sombre, lingering storm clouds. All of these various hues and unforgettable scenes inspired me to write my newest composition “Sombre Night Sky”. I included several pictures below, and I hope to record “Sombre Night Sky” soon!
