Transmitting From NYC... Happy Spring!! It's certainly been awhile. The journal's been quiet over the winter months as I'm usually encouraged to make entries from different stops on the road. As I've been off the road for awhile, my mind hasn't been jarred in this direction but at least I'm making up for it now with a bit of news from the home front. I recently teamed up with MZPR Productions who deals mostly in doing PR for authors. I was asked to come on board as kind of a resident composer in writing music for trailers for upcoming books. Here's the YouTube link for our 1st one promoting a book called "Killer" by Dave Zeltserman which will be coming out in May: http://www.youtube.com/user/MZPRProductions?feature=mhw4 It's quite a good read. The trailer should be on quite a few websites over the coming weeks. There'll be some more trailers coming soon as well. Over the years, I've written tons of music for TV & Radio but never anything specifically tailored to promote books. I'll keep you posted as new ones become available for viewing. The other major project, one that I'm very excited about, is that I'm very close to being ready to go into the studio and record my 2nd CD. I just recently finished Phase 1 which is the composing process. Next is to put in some time at the piano & formulate a battle plan as far as performing the pieces after which I'll head in to record. The large majority of this one will be solo piano like the 1st but I may add some bits of group recordings that were done early last year as well. I'll be updating my progress here as things move along. And there you have the major musical events as of early Spring 2010! Keep checking in for any updates. Till then...
