I am about to release a double album, everyone. The first disc has some jazz, original compositions in a contemporary style, more traditional classical music and Brazilian choro. The second disc is comprised of traditional Scandinavian chorales arranged for guitar by yours truly. The two discs will be available within a couple months’ time. Samples are available on this site as well as Facebook and Soundcloud. Feel free to place an order with me now via email. The cost will be $20.00 USD. Expect a CD release party before the end of summer! Thank you.
I have recently come up with the idea of composing music according to maps. I arrived at this conclusion through my interest in becoming more familiar with the geography of both my local region and the world in its entirety. To be more specific, I will be using maps to measure phrase length, cadences and key centers according to altitude, mileage, curvature of roads etc. My question for you is: What other interesting inspirations have you come across? Are there some particular impetuses that stand out for you? We can share different reasons for making music and literature, something which might not be so obvious or common place.
Thanks for visiting the blog. Feel free to post anything regarding my work in music or languages. If you have resources or interesting information on these two topics, please share anything here. Constructive criticism is greatly appreciated. Let your voice be heard!
