Description : I had no particular intention doing this, but then it just came on me out of nowhere....How to make an antithesis Halloween work!? Prior to that there were no plans to make a track for the occasion, furthermore I've never been really interested in such a thing. It always seemed a bit silly to me if not outright childish. But then I remembered the Interview with The Vampire and Bram Stoker's Dracula. My gosh, there was some peculiar romanticism in there and I probably don't have to tell you twice that this must be a bait for Orlando, as is a cup of fresh young blood for a vampire...:) Furthermore I like people who are different, so I just have to like vampires who a different as well...hehe...so it should be dawning on you by now that this won't be your standard Halloween tune...haven't I mentioned "antithesis"? So...no growling zombies, midnight cemetery bells, creaking doors or any of your favourite horror sounds, although it's still a little bit darker in tone...hell yeah, vampires are still vampires...haha...but this one is mainly about a vampire desperately in love with a young lady, craving for her as a madman...I won't tell whether she's also a vampire or not, cause you might figure it out listening to the track...^^ Otherwise it was about time for me to come up with a new solo work, since I've been almost exclusively doing collabs in those past few months (which I love ofcourse)...afteral you can always ask Ed...:)^^____Happy Halloween folks!:)
Description : I don't even remember the last time working on a track shorter than 4 minutes and this one is obviously the case , but it's always great pleasure doing collabs with Ed and this is yet another one.
If you maybe thought that our previous effort titled "Timeless Sunday" was oversweet, then think again and better listen to this one which is guaranteed the pure diabetes case. Just don't say I didn't warn you..:)) And who the hell is Glenda?? Errr, well....she doesn't want you to know, so better let me say big thanks to the great man and genius musician Ed Cunningham, also well known as Tumbleweed without whom any of these unique projects wouldn't come to existence.....Cheers Ed.
Description : I probably didn't pick the right time and season to upload such a thing, but since my musical life is full of paradoxes anyway, I decided to stay true to myself...-:)
Description : What to say about this one?...Toyed a bit more than usual with echo and delay....and the result is here...:)
Description : Just another chillout...:)
Description : It's been awhile since my last upload and here is finally some new music from me. Not so usual mixture of melancholy, defiance and relaxed moments is in front of you. Don't bother the chosen genre...could have easily been something else as well..:))
Description : As first, just forget about the genre...I had to put something, didn't I?:) Otherwise this is something like enjoying sunshine, but to make the feeling a bit more complicated is also about not wanting to have it directly in my face...hehe...
Description : Enigmatically entitled and questionable in chosen genre...I hope it can't get worse than that..:-)
Description : Could be a story of recent times...
Description : An overlong fantasy...:)
Description : What would you say if you had to wait more than a year for a daybreak? " Nah...science fiction!" you will say. No, no...that's exactly what happened to me when I started working on a collab with maestro Tumbleweed (the Irish gentleman from Canada whom most of you know well) far more than one year ago. The song was called Breacadh (daybreak) and still is. Uneasy relationship with my Muse led to several (too many) pauses during the process . But who would look backwards now...the dawn is finally breaking...all thanks to Ed !
Description : Dear Loopers...Let Ed and me take you to the world of yet another musical fantasy born out of our latest collab efforts. Ed provided basic structure of the track with ever solid rhythm section, tasty synths and vocal pads while I took
on a role of pretending to be multi-instrumentalist again by smuggling in some sweet strings, bulgarian flute, celtic harp,
unexpectedly blurry piano and this time a tiny bit of real live acoustic guitar...what an adventure for a vst/keyboard guy..:) As always
my sincere thanks to Ed not only for letting me enjoy his great musical company but also for still standing as one of the firm pillars of Looperman society !
Description : Not just an ambient track. I think it's pretty eclectic this time and even if I don't mention you will probably easily figure out that this is anothar collab work with maestro Tumbleweed...yup, we kinda became almost unseparable and that's a special blessing, indeed ! Thank you Ed!:)
Description : No more singing now...haha! So what comes next?
I belong to the nation which has a great passion for alpinism (not myself though)..:) This newly composed and recorded stuff is dedicated to all of those who stayed in the grip of Himalaya forever!...Respect!
Description : The spring is in full motion over here and I guess it helped me quite a bit to complete my part of the job on yet another exciting collab with maestro Tumbleweed. Most of our collab works contain at least some aspect which demonstrates something out of ordinary one or another way. This time we got a peculiar combination of mysticism and merciless attacks of soapiness (my bad....haha)....So let's listen to hear whether I'm right or not!....:) As always on such occasions, all my thanks to Ed !
Description : Many of you know well that Tumbleweed & Orlando collabs are pretty much well established tradition within LM society by now, and here is the newest example to reinforce that tradition. It's probably the last this year (yet never take it for granted) and I think it has (although not particularly intended) a bit of that seasonal celebrative nature, thus fitting quite well into this festive feel of December. Despite providing it's share of melancholic tones (you can bet who is responsible...haha...) it's a quite happy tune overall...and it doesn't bite, so you're all most welcome to listen and comment !... As always my sincere thanks to Ed !
Description : Another collab work with maestro Tumbleweed is here. It's a bit special this time in multiple ways. I guess this is the very first time when I didn't use any of my usual instrumentation when collabs are in question. As you probably know I'm talking about strings and piano. No matter how you prick up your ears you won't find them here. Instead , you will be witnessing the bold move of mine, which was simply joining Ed in his otherwise "untouchable" teritory....playing guitars, Yes you got that right..:) By untouchable I mean his most high standards he sets with playing his tour de force instruments. I'm just a humble servant here, playing mostly melody lines (plus some embelishments) which I composed for this piece. It's also the first time when music comes very close to a dancing style of music....this time in classical spanish/latino fashion, but not exclusively...there will be always mixed ingredients when a naughty lad like me is on board. In spite of phletora of acoustic guitars this might sound pretty minimalistic and I hope it's for the better. My sincere and special thanks to Ed for letting me contribute this way on yet another exciting journey.
Description : There were two separate tracks in work, but who knows why I got tired with them and then decided to merge them (or at least what left from them) into one piece hence they originate out of same musical purpose. No worries...no world war was ment here, except my recent personal one...haha...and you don't want to know about it.:) It's not real etude by any means, yet it's quite alot about practicing...practicing...
Description : A test drive..:)
UPDATE - 20th Apr 2017...Not anymore..-:)
Description : An easy listening tune I guess which is another collab with maestro Tumbleewed....Thank you Ed..:)
Description : I hope this is at least close to what title suggests...a kind of old fashioned easy listening chillout with some classical elements.
Description : Peace in Europe...for how long? Ok... after the infamous Alien affairs this represents a return to my more or less standard soundworld. Coincidentaly I took this oportunity to pay a little tribute to Ultravox (do you remember them?) which is hidden somewhere within the song structure. When I was composing and playing at the same time suddenly something sounded similar to Ultravox (the mistery of coincidence or simply subconsciousness?), so I grabbed the devil .:) I think it's not really a typical Chill Out but more a crossover of handful of genres. Some of the gentler souls among you might even like it, or at least I hope our dear mate Silverman won't be "pissed" again.:)
Description : This is probably my last upload this year and it represents the 10th collab with legendary maestro Tumbleweed. May there be many more! This one is for more romantic souls ! As usual all my thanks go to my dear friend Ed who probably finally understands why I stay up till late night hours so often .:)
Description : I just painted a picture of abandoned sanctuary and I thought it could sound like this...:)
Description : This description comes with a bit of delay due to some mysterious purposes..hehe..but so it happened, boys and girls, that this is my second colab work with no other than Mr. Tumbleweed The Great (Ed Cunningham). He sent me a piece of music in a raw and unfinished condition, based on acoustic guitar work, supported with splendid percussion and some tasteful orchestral pads. So my task here was to add some of my own trumpery (haha) and to wrap all up into something what could be called a "finished product". As in the previous offer I granted my strings the dominant role, with viola taking the primary spotlight instead of usual violin which dominated in some of my previous works. Next I included some more piano parts than I usualy do (making Ed happy), some brass for the intro section, and even some bass and electric guitar touches. Sax has also been considered, but just didn't happen (lazy guy ^) , but I deliberately left out any kind of distinct synthesized sounds, wanting it to sound as classical as possible. I hope it turned out nicely in the end, so have a listen and any kind of comment would be appreciated.:)
Also, hat's off to Bear for snuffing the Celtic influences (but probably not knowing who is behind this) and all my thanks to dear Ed for sharing his treasure with me !
