Three New Releases: Recordings, Music, and Books

It’s always so exciting to see projects get finished, ready to share with you! So, check out these three newest releases, available now for your enjoyment!

  • MYRIAADICT: The Soundtrack Collection
    • Consisting of all my fun soundtrack commissions from this past summer, plus two rocking, original Celtic tunes — one from several years ago, and one just fresh off the presses for a dear friend. 🙂

Explore new music created to be partnered with other art-forms! From retro-style video games to short indie films, this collection covers instrumental and electronic moods from chip tune to romance, comedy, and contemporary Celtic. This download includes mp3s as well as 5 album art extras!

This original picture-book and poem by Sarah Wallin-Huff features the three movements and subsections found within her 2008 concerto for 6-string electric violin, EWI, synth, and orchestra, “Leviathan of the Ancient Deep,” allowing the reader to dive into the mythology that built the musical work.

 

You know what else this means?… As I finish up the Leviathan recording, once and for all, I have some really exciting projects in the pipeline, ready to start taking shape in the coming months…. 😀

Fever Pitch, for Unaccompanied Viola

I cannot tell you how many violists have come up to me over the years, asking me for a feature solo for viola. Well, the wait is finally over!!

It took the contagious enthusiasm of a sweet and talented violist I’ve had the pleasure of working with many times to give me the kick-in-the-pants I needed to complete this unique challenge!

This brand new, unaccompanied solo for viola offers the daring artist a “fever pitch” of drama, melody, and virtuosity! For approximately six minutes, the violist is set free to explore a mystifying world of Dream and Thought, flitting between the sounds of Celtic melancholy, J.S. Bach, and George Gershwin with simply their imagination and instincts to guide them.

 

Right now on the product page, I’ve posted a little, raw recording of me playing the opening of this work, but it gets challenging after that point, and, while I can play it, it’s a little messy right now, haha! I’d rather wait until I’m (or a certain marvelous violist is) ready to properly record this for you all. 🙂

It’s a ton of fun to play in the meantime, though! Enjoy!

New Album “Paroketh’s Veil” Now Available!

From CBTTF Records, featuring the original works of Sarah Wallin Huff, we introduce…

Paroketh’s Veil

Purchase this recording at http://cbttf.com/albums/parokeths-veil

Right now, the album is only available in DVD and Blu Ray formats, but the downloadable mp3s should be available soon. Get your copy here!

“The word Paroketh (PRKTh) refers to the Four Elements: Peh (Water), Resh (Air), Kaph (Fire), and Tau (Earth). It is the Veil of the Temple before the Holy of Holies… a veil made up of the four classical elements of the human body” (Dan Sewell Ward, Feb 2007). In the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, the “Veil of Paroketh” lies between the middle branches of intention, or consciousness, and the lowest branches of our physical reality. Everything “above” Paroketh’s Veil emerges from our conscious decisions and beyond… from the past stories and experiences that help shape our intentions to act as we choose in the world.

 

A vintage aura of story and myth envelops this intimate collection of chamber music. For example, “Falada” — Portuguese for “speaking” or “discourse” — brings to mind the role storytellers of old played in their communities, passing down vital history and life lessons to the young. “Weeping Willow” recalls emotional whirlwinds of despair, hope, and passion — emotions common to us all. “Forgotten Melody” seeks deep within the soul to uncover that which was once hidden. And the three diverse works — “Of Roses and Lilies,” “Aradia, La Bella Pellegrina,” and “The Oracle” — tell the stories of their respective characters: ancient tales that continue to impact our modern culture.

 

May we embrace our past stories to uncover the commonality inherent to all humanity.

“simplicity” is now available!

Due to a large and involved soundtrack project I recently took on (featuring my music that will appear in the background of an upcoming bingo game app), I am now able to share these fresh electronic tunes with you all as it’s own full album!

With smooth and comfortable underpinnings reminiscent of Brahms stepping out to jazz, or Zappa gently walking through a garden with a favorite melody, “simplicity” provides a meditative setting while rewarding close listening. The treasures are in the details […]

Introducing… The Dark Glass Sinfonia!

“We See Through A Glass Darkly…”

The Dark Glass Sinfonia is Wallin-Huff’s latest composition for symphony orchestra. Built upon an integrated set of hexachordal formulae – blending the concepts of free atonality with modal harmony – this work represents the enigmatic and ongoing, emotional flux of the Soul. Running time: approx. 6 minutes.

…I plan on expounding further on how I constructed this work later… 😉

But, for now, you can purchase and download the score here, and enjoy the midi demo recording below!

Twenty-three years after surviving the Scandal of 2241, Janice Parc lives out her adulthood in pleasant normalcy with her husband and three children. The family gets the chance to visit the village of Hiskitan in northernmost Artemisia. Janice knows she must face her memories with courage if her heart is to move on. So she agrees to the journey for the sake of her family and for her own growth.

Unfortunately, the depth of the Artemisians’ pain is too great to ignore. The last living relative of Agent David Rifadoft will not allow her suffering, nor that of her people, to go unanswered. By her guidance, the adventure that began with such hope will escalate into a cycle of tragedy.

He returns to Earth, and the darker truths behind their past begin to unfold.
