Music

Compositions

For 40 years or so I have created guitar music and recorded some of it. Only a fraction of it has made it to the website, or probably ever will. This is partly because the recordings are poor. But it also because I am a terrible archivist I am lazy, too; I even if I could find them I can't be bothered to process and polish them. As a general rule once I record something it I seem to forget it and move on to the next one. So, they are probably long gone...

The above said, don't expect any of the acoustic guitar recordings below to be in any "studio standard" in terms of quality or performance - but they are still hopefully worth a listen as they feature some lovely melodies!

For the past decade I've focused my energies on Intermorphic. So far my site has only a handful of recordings online - I hope to add more as I get time.

On Second Thoughts

Steel Guitar

This guitar piece starts with an easy to play melodic riff, which to me has the feel of open country and fresh starts. As it progresses it oscillates between this and a more reflective, nostalgic section, echoing that in life that fresh starts are not always what they are envisaged to be - on every journey there are unexpected challenges that need to be overcome and some things may need to be left behind as a consequence of that.

Three Two One Awake

Classical Guitar

This quirky piece (recording played on classical guitar) has a few interesting jazz chords and some nice melodies. I decided to let it be free flowing so I have no idea of time signature. It is meant to accompany a picture of the same name "Three Two One Awake".

Not in My Name

Steel Guitar

A new composition that is also enjoyable to play. It requires very specific hand and finger positioning for certain slides and to allow certain notes to ring on. Because of that I've been working on refining this one for a year or two.

His Story All Over

Steel Guitar / Synth

An old man in a hotel room. His last look back at your life, alone. It flashes by, again, and again. A series of memories in the blink of an eye. And it is gone. A story told once, and never to be told again.
