And now for something a little different...
This website and blog's primary purpose is an outlet to share my photography, and for years I have pretty much stayed true to that goal. Today's post is very unusual because I would like to share another passion of mine which is music. My tastes in music are extremely diverse, I have a 5,000+ CD collection, I also compose my own music and play many different instruments. Photography and music are two things I love to do so much and I feel so good inside when I am doing them....which leads me to the reason for this posting.
I have composed a new instrumental song and it has just been released as a single worldwide! The song is called "Hymn for a New World" and its inspiration is quite powerful. It was composed in the Spring of 2020. I wrote it as a song of hope for our broken planet to spread positive vibes of peace, joy and help us to heal from the anger, violence, bitterness and racism that is so prevalent in these times. My feelings and emotions of how I feel about our world shaped the resulting music and it flowed from me quickly and naturally. I recorded and played all of the instruments in my studio and it was truly a labor of love. The music starts simply with classically inspired solo piano, then blossoms with an array of unique instruments that join in one after the other and energetically closes with a triumphant and uplifting climax.
