I’ve made a couple of cool demo videos for you to take a peek at these two works I’ve got on the burner right now… 🙂
First, a look at “Ayre of Grievances” for flute, violin, and viola (a digital playback demo of just the opening section):
Second, here’s a short example of a cool sampling piece I’m putting together: “Tonal Eclipse”
Enjoy, and keep an eye out for the finished works soon!
Now available everywhere– Isolation Loop…
“Isolation Loop” is an original creation made with loops broken down from H.I.F. Biber’s Passacaglia for solo violin from his Rosary Sonatas of 1676. The viola and violins blend with a driving soundscape of synthesis and drums to create a haunting texture at home in any era.
Today in my basement studio I again experimented with the AudioKit L7 looper app, but this time I took a 17th century Passacaglia from the Rosary Sonata by H.I.F. Biber, and made it my own!
Ideally, I would use headphones and record the sound properly, but I wanted to see how the app handled a spontaneous “live” sort of setting…. Enjoy this randomly improvised, modern passacaglia, and expect more musical experiments to come… 😉
By the by, be sure to check out my single Chant de Grenouille sur la Lune if you like this kind of sound.
I think this poem by Edgar Allen Poe might be one of my favorite literary works… 🤔🥰 I tried to keep the sense of innocence and deep sorrow in this musical rendition. There is a third and final movement–“Tell-Tale Heart”–planned for the future, too; so keep an eye out for that. 😉
In the meantime, enjoy the simple demo of “Annabel Lee” below…
