Tales of the Laughing Wizards

June 15, 2016

It is so easy to get distracted in life, isn’t it?! My intention with this blog was to regularly call attention to past pieces I’ve written as well as new ones. It’s the “regularly” part of that intention that went astray. So, today, I’m trying to climb back on that wagon and see if I […]

Amidst the city’s desolation, the Anima appears as a woman clothed in radiant white

August 4, 2014

I added a new track to The Geography of Dreams: Admist the city’s desolation, the Anima appears as a woman clothed in radiant white.

Larger pieces evolve and often change direction, entailing a complete reworking of the idea and its parts. That’s what’s happening with this new groups of pieces called “The Forest.” The Soundcloud tags I’m using are “electronic,” “ambient,” “fae,” and “elven.” So…that pretty well describes where this group is settling in!

Tales of the Laughing Wizards

April 10, 2013

Admittedly, these are outright, unabashedly commercial pieces aimed at a specific audience, namely the good listeners of radioreddit.com. I’d uploaded some of my short pieces for piano there and surprisingly they’re getting repeat airplay and upvotes every day (so I know it’s not just my friends). The piano pieces have a “classical” tag on radioreddit. […]
