Playlist details

Aria for 2 cellos

In memory of my music teacher Kim Shutenko.

I see the piece performed by two cellos and danced by two contemporary ballet male dancers.

This is the only piece I have so far played by a real cellist. It was quite an expensive experience.    

Spooky mood

Trying to write something without a melody. Performed with Omnisphere.

String quartet

Written for a school/college ensemble. Performed with XSample.

1st movement was completed in 2013. 2nd and 3d ones were composed in 1974 when I was a student.

Videos with score are here: Variations  Andante  Finale

J. S. Bach Prelude in C

I wanted to arrange the famous piece with electronic instruments and without Gounod's melody.

Listening to your String Quartet Finale right now.  Very clear sound and a good composition!  I am enjoying it very much.

Continue learning Omnisphere and Stylus RMX.

Here is Once Upon a Dirigible

Thank you for finding time to listen ☺.

Winter vacation

Posted on March 26, 2016 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

I came to a conclusion that uploading music here doesn't make sense.

Even if somebody listened to the piece, I'd never know about it.

So, here is Winter vacation using Omnisphere 2 and Stylus RMX.

Thank you for finding time to listen ☺.
