This page showcases a varied amount of samples of his original compositions along with his own personal notes about each piece.

THE DEEP – DIVING IN – THE BLAZING LIGHT

The most elaborate and personally meaningful piece to date. Made entirely with digital instruments. Still may need some more work regarding sound, but is very close to what I had heard inside me before recording.

STORM CLOUDS

This is the first piece where I felt quite ambitious to adventure myself into the colorful realms of orchestral sounds. It was a brief piece originally for piano that I had laying around for a couple of years, but one that I always felt had to be backed up with orchestral sounds. It’s quite a personal piece where I was looking to convey that peaceful spot where one is safe in the middle of a storm.

GOLDEN STRING

Composed for classical guitar, in this particular piece I was looking to convey a very open and breathy atmosphere using only the guitar and sound effects from nature.  It was composed after my wife had a dream about us tied by a golden string that pulled us together until we merged into one single light.  Very inspiring to say the least and this is the song that came from it.

STILL CANYON

A calming piece played with acoustic guitar, native american flute, digital pads and vocals. Composed for the music library of Living Miracles Productions.

LUMINE

Mystical music composed for the Living Miracles TV website. Very abstract piece with latin words sang by beautiful female vocals. http://www.livingmiraclestv.org

MADRUGADA (low quality)

An old and quite personal song that I have never had the chance to record professionally.  “Madrugada” is a word in Spanish meaning “late night/early morning”.  This piece was composed to convey that moment before going to sleep after a love drunk night.

Instruments: Electric piano, acoustic guitar.
