I said to my daughter, ‘I will only have two days in Toronto to write music!’ and she answered, ‘Don’t waste any of your time mom!!’. And how precious is our time here! This music is a celebration of life’s energy and is filled with the one thing that I value more dearly than pretty much anything else in this world…hope!
This track took a day and a half, from conception to what you hear now! It is my voice trying to make sense of the world. When someone close to you is dying or having great difficulties in life, you are thrown into an energy that is confusing and almost unbearably hopeless. It seems to me that as I feel that depth of despair, my entire body, spirit and mind is fighting and climbing as high as possible…to bring the opposite energy to life! To give hope, take away the fear, bring comfort, touch the soul and make indescribable beauty that makes living just a little bit easier. Lots and lots of love to all those who are facing unimaginable challenges and fighting their personal battles. I can’t do much, but I can give you my music! M.
Manifesting my dreams! So many elements are coming together and into my life to make way for new music and an outpouring of creativity and love! Moved into my new studio, have wonderful and inspirational people all around me who surround me with great energy, have 3 feature films that I am working on, a great project in the science world that will make a difference in the lives of many people, a cool new genre being developed with a fellow composer in LA, not to mention all the kids and students that I teach each week, as well as the OrKidstra Symposium on Instrumental Change where I will conduct the OrKidstra and give a session on improvising fun in the classroom! Feeling so blessed to have all of this happening and incredibly supportive children and family who let me fly!! I thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!
Three new cinematic pieces that were created in three days! All pre-written for films in the making! Enjoying the intensity, textures and pure creative craziness that this style brings out of me!! Enjoy and hold onto your seats!
Danny’s Ghost is an incredible new track that opens into a world of mystery, fright and suspense!! Written for a film that is currently being edited! Very excited to see how the music will sync up with picture!
Valentine needed a bit over a minute of chaos, anger, angst and pain! I think this track fits the bill.
Produced in the wee hours for Alex’s film trailer, it’s a horror film that I will be scoring this summer! It is all about psychological build up and getting under the skin of the viewer. So excited to create a score that will meld classic and modern horror, mostly with the sounds and textures of my cello!
