Yes! New music for writing

Nano took a back seat this morning as I’ve been searching for the ‘right’, writing music. I listened to new music by old favourites, but nothing really matched how I feel about this new story. So in desperation I went to SoundCloud and there, thanks to SoundClouds great recommendation engine, I found…

Jon Altino

This is the playlist I just put together. It’s a bit rough as I just grabbed songs as I heard them, but the very first one – A World Asleep – is glorious and should give you some idea of the kind of music I need this year.

Jon Altino? If you’re reading this, I wanted to buy the album, but iTunes only offered Superhero. Please, please put a new album up there!

Well, time to put this lovely music to the test and fire up StoryBox.  I have this feeling P7698 is going to flow a whole lot better today than yesterday.

#JoBlankenburg – Unreleased

I’ve raved about the composer Jo Blankenburg before, offering up video clips for your delectation, but this time all I can offer is a URL:

http://joblankenburg.com/other-music/

The URL will take you to Blankenburg’s website, and a list of his unreleased music. You can listen to all of them, but two that wring my heart are:

  • Aka and Alex
  • Crater of Dead Souls

I’d love to know what you think coz, frankly, I’d happily become this man’s one-woman fan club!

-cough-

Well, goodnight all. I’m off into my own little world now. đŸ™‚

SBS TV, and the ‘Classical Destinations’ Theme

I’ve recently become an SBS convert so please forgive the proselytizing, but it really does have THE best cooking and travel shows bar none.

‘Classical Destinations’, the program mentioned in the title of this post, is one such travel show, but it has a twist – it takes viewers to locations with strong classical music connotations.

Paul Terracini is the Australia composer/conductor who wrote the theme music for ‘Classical Destinations’. I loved the music so much I went hunting online until I found this video clip. Enjoy this feast for the eyes as well as the ears!

p.s. I’ve added a new category called ‘Music’. I’ll try and gather all the music related posts in the one place.
