Watch an inspiring five minute video of one of my best loved compositions, PEACE ON EARTH, from The Symphonic Suite entitled AN AMERICAN SYMPHONY.
The music is recorded “LIVE” in nature at a remote location overlooking Mt. Shasta in Northern California with the most amazing Lenticular clouds above the summit. I was inspired by the fireworks from the night before as I experienced pure light and color exploding before my eyes. Looking at the majesty and grandeur of of the mountain and stunning clouds, I knew this is where I would record.
I set up my keyboards and composed music throughout the day. It was glorious and powerful. PEACE ON EARTH is performed near the edge of a gigantic chasm where Mt. Shasta rose beyond. It was an eerily beautiful and dramatic experience to behold.
Listen to RAPTURE, one of my compositions from ANTHOLOGY in its entirety.
This amazing composition is peaceful, harmonious, emotionally uplifting and profoundly relaxing. The music is recorded in nature on San Juan Island in Washington State during a beautiful summer afternoon.
I spent several weeks in the summer, camping out on San Juan Island, setting up my keyboards and recording equipment in various locations around the Island. My piece, RAPTURE, was created overlooking Puget Sound near the waters where the Orcas live.
