This hypnotic, ambient, minimalist and energetic piece features movement under an ostinato, with surprising resolutions and contemporary ambience. Its minimalist structure lends itself to easy editing and can be cut anywhere and reassembled. It’s kaleidoscopic, frenetic, but also majestic.
Somewhere between Mr Bojangles and Pachelbel’s canon, this elegant tune grows from intimate trio to epic orchestral through successive variations. Inspired by the kindness of Sarah at Melodicloud.
Inspired by a common rock progression, this tune speaks to the grownup in the rock’n’roller. It’s comforting and familiar, a happy tune, yet upscale and elegant despite its rock’n’roll roots. It’s a piece for String Quintet, and straddles the New Acoustic genre and Baroque.
This piece is a calm, hypnotic, intelligent and upscale exploration of a pop chord progression, at once soothing, challenging and inviting with Romantic overtones.
This classically-flavored piece for piano and string ensemble has a heartland feeling – sort of a country/classical fusion. The inspiration for it was an ASPCA commercial.
