New song from upcoming album

Posted on Updated on

Here is one of the bonus tracks from my upcoming album. The name of the song is This Mystery.

This song features a coalescence of two prominent Oriental instruments, the Koto and the Shamisen. I tried to capture a mysterious atmosphere and infuse it with violin/orchestral tracks, and the result was this song. I think it is a very good effort, and I certainly hope you will be pleased with it. Enjoy…

Music as a language…

Me in the studio
In the studio

I’ve always thought of music as a language. A way for us to communicate. Sometimes, I call it the “universal language”. Right?

Well, I am new to making music professionally. My weapon of choice? The Yamaha Motif XS. All my new music is created, arranged, composed, and mastered on this wonderful piece of equipment.

My main influence? Yanni. Back when he was doing “real” (non-vocal) style music. I love his instrumentals; always have, always will. The new stuff? Not so much.

Growing up in the 80s, I have all the influences of the big artists at that time: MJ (RIP), Journey (back when they had Steve Perry), Toto, you name it. I like to dip into an eclectic nostalgia time to time and get some inspiration.

Well enough talk for now. Hang tight with me while I find a way to upload my music to this thing…
