Veni, Vidi, Video

I came, I saw, I finally got something up on YouTube.

Production value isn't great, but this is what I sound and look like. Sorry about the microphone in the face.

Several more original songs will be on YouTube soon, as well as a few classical pieces.

Oh, and I'll be performing in St. Louis again in May, this time with my friends Joseph Akins and Philip Wesley. Thad Fiscella, whom I have not met, will also be on the bill.

You can see the dates and details of concerts on Eventful.

I have most of the piano recorded for Timeless II, and I am working on the orchestration now. I recently bought a new library of orchestral samples, and it is incredible! Can't wait for you to hear it.

So far, the lineup for Timeless II is:

Rachmaninoff: Vocalise and D Major Prelude
Bach: Siciliano (and maybe the B-flat Partita)
Beethoven: Moonlight Sonata
Chopin: E minor Prelude, 2 nocturnes, and the E major Etude
Also the beautiful 2nd mvt. of E minor concerto
Saint-Saens: The Swan

I haven't selected a lullaby yet. Any suggestions?

If I only had my own orchestra I could finish this album in no time. Problem is, I have to play every note of every instrument myself, and every note has to be just right before I can let it go.
I endlessly repeat things that nobody but me will ever notice, so it takes a while. But the upside to it is that this is all music that I love, so it is still a lot of fun.

We're expecting snow for Valentine's Day. That's global warming for you...
