‘Chronicle’ is a cinematic opening to an old project that never came to be. Dark, ambient bell tones give way to an orchestral rise, and then to a simple melody played on a Duduk (an Armenian clarinet).
Here’s a re-orchestration of some of my favourite gaming music – the themes from ‘Beyond Good & Evil’ originally by Christophe Heral.
‘Hymn’ is a simple, intimate piano improvisation – and it’s now in the library!
‘Time and Space’ is a simple, modern piano & orchestra piece in two parts – beginning with a simple piano motif and effected woodwinds, but suddenly dropping into a dramatic, driving orchestral backend at ~2:05.
‘Phoenix’ is a bit of a classical experiment, taking a simple motif which is repeated and shared as a canon amongst an orchestra and choir – rising to a fun, harmonious mess and falling again.
Soo, my new album is available now.
