Blue and Green....Part 1 ..my debut album
But now I'm putting the finishing touches to my debit album Blue & Green its dawning on me that I may just have to dust off my old 'live kit', run off a few pounds and get back out their and promote this with some live dates.
Now, how did this album come about?. Well generally I write music to order. Producers, directors, music editors etc contact me and ask for something very specific. Occassionally I get time to write for myself, I'll find myself sitting at the keyboard lost in one thought or another and gradually a melody or chord structure emergies from my ramblings.
As I see piano as my first instrument the compositions that emerged were generally piano based. Gentle flowing passages accompanied by strings or woodwind. (Yep I know, million miles away from the Prodigy!)
A lot of the tracks were influenced either by the state of our enviroment and the devastating impact we are having on it or simply by the beauty of some at our most abundant elements, such as the sea for Deep Blue. I'm hoping that by listening and possibly tapping into the emotion I feel, it might just bring home to a few people how fragile our planet really is.
I know, I guess I'm expecting a lot. Anyway this collection of music that is approaching completion will hopefully soon be available on CD and as a digital download.
Please feel free to have a listen to a few samples of it on my site http://www.encoremusic.co.uk and let me know your thoughts. You might even influence how it eventually sounds.
