Recordings: New LONG excerpts posted!

Posted on October 22, 2013 at 9:32pm 2 Comments

Hey there! I've just posted new longer excerpts for your listening enjoyment. Let me know what you think of this- my first album. 'One' can be described as a fusion of jazz and rock. There are also two songs with vocals by Darl Chryst. I co-wrote a tune with Christopher Alpiar- track 6, 'Ostinato Trip'. Chris plays saxophone on many of these tracks. Superb drums by Adrian Peek and also Seth Burkhart. I played guitars, bass, and…

Hey, Doug! Love Solstice. I've been absent from the forum for quite a while. I think I missed out. I don't know if you're interested in having your music played on podcasts, but if so you might check out I think it's relatively new, and they seem to play mostly electronic music (created on a computer). I love electronica but would hate to see live instrumental music go the way of the 8-track tape.

Best wishes.

Thanks for the welcome Doug,

Real nice setup you have there. Great music! As anyone ever told you you look a little like Randy Newman?

Thanks Doug,

See through me was co written and produced with Alex Dunn (also on composers forum) The distortion sound is quite crackly as I'm using a fender strat (single coils) I'm working on getting a better sound.

Thanka Doug, "Two Jazzmen" was purely improvised and then accelerated, edited and left unfinished; it exists in MIDI form only. I am not knowledgeable enough in Jazz instrumentation and rhythms to arrange it with the swinging rhythm; you are right also that it needs pauses to break out the overused rhythm. Your Jazz pieces look much more interesting; they are really Jazz!

I hope you enjoyed my music!

Thanks, Doug, for your kind words! You've exactly understood and described my intentions and why and how I work the way I do. Thanks again!

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
Guitar lessons in my youth, sent me in the direction of composing music. Later I taught myself a basic knowledge of piano/keyboard. I divide my time between music and the visual arts. (see my Website) I have been using MIDI and DAWS since the late 80's. I've posted a few photos of my gear. My favorites include Wayne Shorter, Hendrix, Beethoven, Copland, John Adams, Stravinsky, Brian Eno, and various fusion bands, to name a few.
I'm currently working on my first album, although I've composed and recorded for many years. I'm using the band name, Fusion Galaxy. I'm working with session musicians and I've found our Remote Sessions group to be helpful. I just recorded a local vocalist here in Phoenix, AZ.
