Instrumental music is such a truly universal and magical language. It can tell a story, change a mood, stimulate the intellect and create pictures in the mind. And all without a single word being uttered.
Felix Mendelssohn probably said it best.-“People usually complain that (instrumental) music is so ambiguous, while words are understood by everyone. But for me it is exactly the opposite...what the music I love expresses to me are thoughts not too indefinite for words, but rather too definite.”
And from Carlos Santana -“I realised a long time ago that instrumental music speaks a lot more clearly than English, Spanish, Yiddish, Swahili, any other language. Pure melody goes outside time.”
I'm a pianist, guitarist, composer and arranger and my instrumental songs without words are based on topical and universal themes. My genre is modern hybrid chamber music, crafted for a mixed acoustic and electronic ensemble from classical, electronica and jazz blues influences.
This web site is my "living album", I sincerely hope it brings pleasure to your life.
