Music Composers Unite!
In november 2012 medical students from Ljubljana gathered to help raising money for those in need. For that event they asked me to write an arrangement for two of Michael Jackson's brilliant songs-Heal the World and Eath Song for the whole ensable they had. You can view and listen to the final product at these two links: pt1 (Heal the Wold-starts at the beginning ) or…Continue

It is hard to find anything more beautiful than the music of the 19th century Polish composer Fredric Chopin, who was called "the poet of the piano" because of his lyrical and memorable melodies. I think he's like the Beatles of classical composers. Like them, everything he wrote was memorable and accessible - and short. Here is an example of one of my favorite works by him. The melody is utterly simple, and in the bass, accompanied by divine arpeggios in the right hand. It requires a…Continue
I was going through the recently posted videos today. Some of them look quite slick, but I can't tell if they are the work of the poster or if they are just putting up a video they like, because they did not comment. I like both types of video, but react completely differently depending on whether it is someone's composition or not. Please clearly indicate when you post a video if it's your own composition or not. Thanks -

For the past 2 days the city is a freakin' huge and crazy party.

My album, 'One' by Fusion Galaxy, now goes to mastering. This is an exciting time for me. I've never produced an album before. It has taken over three years to complete. I have hired session musicians to help realize my musical vision. The first session guy I found was CF's own Christopher Alpiar. The moment I heard his saxophone solos, I knew he would be great to work with. Seth Burkhart on drums was also an early discovery. He plays with his jazz group all over…Continue
This is a new song, that I mainly have made for a friend of mine. Is a very simple song.
I hope you like it though:)
This is my lyrics. Underneath is my song:
Time, usually pass - swift and quickly,
all I got, recent memories.
Joy, holding a hope - for friends and family
all I want, love and safety
This is my song
to distant memories.......
This is your song
to distant memories.......
I found this floating around on the internet http://www.eastern-piano.com
Very good move, covering some quite interesting material. A bit of a "verbose" take on the improvisations, but still, of great quality. I do wish it covered some theoretical knowledge as well, it would make it much more informative for those that can't read the greek books available on the subject, and offer a piano specific prespective on the traditional greek/eastern…Continue

I am a firm believer all works deserved to be finished. I began writing this song a few years back. It is written in the Romantic style of two theme symmetry; however I liked the second movement so much that I created a separate song (Victoria's song), which I developed individually. In this case you will hear it interweaved with the first theme during the beginning and at the end of the piece, which I also further expanded in the style of a baroque chorale. I hope you enjoy listening to…Continue
I like to read books that challenge my way of thinking. One was siting on my bookshelf for a while as I gathered courage to work through it: The Agony of Modern Music (Henry Pleasants).
I recently wrote an overview and my own analysis and 'relationship' to what the author had to say.
Perhaps you will enjoy it: The Future of Classical Music
Let me know what you…Continue
