A sad song from my new album up and coming ” Les Images de ma coeur”

Back to basics! In 1995 I came to Tennessee to visit my wife’s parents. During this lazy vacation, I decided to take some time and write some classical like sonatinas for piano solo. I was teaching alot and needed some new material. One of these I re-worked from an unfinished one in G Major. I wrote the second movement and really liked the way it just sang. When I got back to New Hampshire, I added it to Patronics and the rest is history. I still teach it as a solo today and have always considered it a personal favorite. Stay tuned to this blog for much info on all our for sale music that just came out. Here is…
My son and I began writing trios for woodwinds recently. The problem was neither of us played the three instruments oboe,flute and bassoon. So…electronic methods were conveyed to us. We wrote them in Sibelius; a notation program. It was fun to use the skills I learned in music school all those years before. The one I wish to share with you today is called ” Medieval fair.” It has roots in early Bach and being in the key of A minor…sounds a bit like an old fair in the medieval period to me.

This song is another selection from my un-released album ” Patronics”. It describes the Borg collective. If you are not a Trekkie like me, here is the explanation. The Borg is a race that threatens the entire universe. They come, take over and absorb all organic and tech from a planet. Their motto is ” Resistance is futile”. They are all connected through a hive like existence where the minds of all are the whole. It is very efficient…and very deadly. So Listen to this tune…you have to…resistance is futile! The Collective Mind
This song was a cool one to make. During my 1996 fascination with electronic music I created this. Alot of these songs were kind of like space soundtracks. I made them all so quick it is hard to remember even how I did it! LOL…Artist Liberty. Keep posted to this site for more freebies. I still have 7 left in the “Patronics” queue. And don’t forget that my new album “Laments,Dreams,and Visions” came out today. Click to listen…click to support my music by perhaps buying one…or all nine.
