Updated post from 2015 - By popular request I've added this treasured piece of my history to the site. This jazz-rock-classical fusion album released originally by Warner Bros in 1988 (and remastered in 2004) can be accessed here. I've also made the album available for digital download (again!) at the usual outlets (Amazon, Apple, Google).. RCS
Instrumental music is 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.”
My passion is to compose, arrange and produce songs without words, or tone poems, on topical and universal themes. My genre is modern hybrid chamber music, crafted for a mixed acoustic and electronic ensemble from classical, jazz and electronica influences. Above all, my aim is to create new instrumental music for people with eclectic tastes for their daily commute, work and relaxation.
This web site is my "living album", I sincerely hope it brings pleasure to your life.
