“Beginning”… new piano track

This is “Beginning,” a new solo piano track. Yes, I’ve been doing a lot of solo piano lately. A piano is just one instrument, but there is a lot of nuance that can happen with every note and every chord.

This is a short piece in three movements. I hope you like it.

“Isolation”… The first single from “Meditations”

It’s been a pretty busy week! My new album, “Meditations of Light and Darkness,” will be released on 11/30/18, so I’ve been keeping busy making sure everything is ready so that there’s an actual album to release on that day!

A few details about that album… The challenge when writing these songs was to stick to (mostly) the piano and the string section. How much can I say just by using these sections? I knew that I could be soft and subtle, but could I also make it intense and powerful when needed? I think I am happy with the results, and it’s probably a concept I’ll be returning to in the future. There is a lot of power in some of these compositions, but they still manage to remain intimate and expressive.

In the meantime, here is the first single, “Isolation.”

This album was in the works for a LONG time (probably about as long a time as Roland has been on his quest), but I’m happy that it’s finally out there in the world.

I was 15 years old when I first picked up a copy of The Gunslinger. At that time, only the first two books of the series had been published, so I had to wait years for each new volume. While waiting, I re-read the previous books, immersing myself in Roland’s world. Even before I had become interested in writing music, I think I always knew the musical language that, to me, would complement Roland’s adventures. This album is an attempt to capture some of that musical language (yes, some of it… I think there are still a lot of musical themes to be discovered).

Thank you for listening, and I hope these musical works inspire you to rejoin Roland’s ka-tet for another trip to the Dark Tower–or to start your voyage for the first time. –RR25552262_1799227573421263_2722854966120927180_n_2
