soundsforpictures 96 (Piano, organ, electric bass, harp, vibraphone and drum machine) • • This piece was inspired by tigranhamasyan • • It’s one of the trickier pieces rhythmically. It is in 31/16. • • The original idea came from a practice session on the drum kit in which I stumbled across the groove but wasn’t sure at the time what it was in. It took a while to figure it out

soundsforpictures 85 (Synthesizers) • • (Edit)A little more detail: • • The idea was to have a synth melody emerge from “noise” and then descend back into it. • • The “noise is actually the beginning of the melody transposed down several octaves to the point where it breaks apart. • • I figured I would explain it as at first glance/ listen it seems pretty random.

It was based on/ inspired by soundsforpictures11 and the drums were influenced by markguiliana • Hope you enjoy 😀
