#SwanDive – by Michael Halaas

I was working on Innerscape and listening to SoundCloud today when a new piece of music caught my attention. That wasn’t this, but it did lead to this:

The track is called Swan Dive and is basically a duet for piano and cello, two of my favourite instruments. The composer and pianist is Michael Halaas, and I think the cellist is Joan Jenreaud, simply because she features on two of his other tracks.

Michael Halaas’ music is very different to that of The Piano Guys, but if you like them I think you might also like him. Halaas’ music is not quite as polished, but it is beautiful and quite original.

I do have another reason for featuring Halaas’ video clip today – musicians are like Indie writers, no matter how good they are, they will never make it unless they become visible…okay, audible. This guy doesn’t seem to do much in the way of marketing, so I thought I’d give him a hand. Yes, yes, I know…the blind leading the blind, but it’s the thought that counts. Right? 🙂

cheers
