Hey guys. Just wanted to share a piece from the soundtrack for the movie 'The Fountain', written by Clint Mansell. I recorded this today - sorry for all the bad background noise, it was on my laptop, not the best recording equipment. I'll be re-recording it soon, possibly tomorrow - but I just wanted to share this first with everyone anyway.

To keep a long story short, I had buried this piece mentally, even though it was probably one of the most haunting, pain-evoking, beautiful pieces I'd ever heard. But - I was chatting on here a few weeks ago, and someone (a good friend, I'd say) brought it up, saying it was one of his favorites. For the first time in a while, I could re-associate it with something positive - him, and, well, you guys. I'm not very good with expressing any tender/affectionate feelings verbally and in public. Even when chatting online. But when I recorded this, honestly, I pictured all of you guys. The posters on the forums, the guys who I talk to regularly on chat. This is the only way I can think of to open up and try to be close to you guys on an emotional level. I guess the title sums it up - 'Together We Will Live Forever' - I think we're all in it together, even if we're in different places, or of different ages and backgrounds. I hope it'll somehow lift you up when you're down - just a reminder that you're not alone.

As I told you in chat, this is a beautiful piece. I hope you'll share more of your music with me in the future. If there's one thing I can appreciate, it is musical talent.

It's funny because on my way home tonight I was listening to the radio and they were talking about how minimalism in music is all about how it is difficult to understand the concept of time. Your piece (and the title of it) go beyond time to something else, something comforting in its beautiful wisdom.

The radio program also talked about how this kind of music began in the last century but at the turn of this century melodic elements were added to the hypnotic harmonies. I find the harmonic repetitions healing in a way, even as the melodies seem to tell a story.

Hope you can continue on your musical path with the patience and feeling you possess.

Hey focusedbody,

I think you put it really well - the melody which seems tell a (sad, lonely, longing) story, against the healing harmonic repetitions...it does make me recall some painful emotions/feelings but at the same time it seems to tell me that everything's going to be alright, despite it all. 'Transcending' everything I guess is the right word, and I think it relates to what you said about the timeless quality of the piece. Thanks for listening, I appreciate it.

I finally got around to re-recording the Clint Mansell piece. The sound quality is a bit better in this one than the original one.

Just wanted to share a few more pieces I recorded recently (I didn't compose them)...I tried to name the pieces according to how I feel about them and what they mean to me. All of them helped me through some recent rough patches; hope you can enjoy/relate. (First two are a bit rough and patchy...sorry about that.)

Loss

The Good Fight

The Lone Wolf

Desert Island

Husky:

These pieces are beautiful and moving. Your talent is astonishing.

There is much to love in each piece, but I wanted to mention in particular that I experienced the ending to "The Good Fight" like a promise and a foretaste of the comfort and healing I hope to find in my own life.

Thanks for sharing these.

I sound computer-illiterate. lol I tried on both MAC and PC. Does it require a special plug-in to play it?

Well...yes.

If you want the special plug-in app that makes Elton John sound like Concerned Husky, the plug-in has to be specially ordered. It takes 6 weeks for delivery.

Haha. Sorry guys, I've been without a laptop lately so my correspondence on MS has been somewhat curtailed...

Keith - I'm not a computer wiz either unfortunately. I don't think there are any special plug-ins involved, that's all I know. Sorry I can't be of more help here...

Puffer - Elton John, I wish. My singing is unfortunately not worth a dime. grin

Cthulhu - I've GOT to learn that boogie! Thanks for sharing. laugh

Woe.. CH.. don't know what to say about your music message. Brought a grown man to tears.

Thanks for putting this on here for us to enjoy. I will be returning to listen again..... many times.

Keith, thank you for listening and the comments you left here - that really made my day...

I don't know how else to say this, but really, there's nothing that makes me happier than knowing that someone "got" it and felt the music...

Thank you. Really.

In case there's a question, Puffer was trying to be funny. I am a great fan of Concerned Husky's playing. I would rather listen to it 1000x more than EJ.

Husky,
If I explained why this post of yours is so timely and pertinent to my day, it would require a very lengthy post. Just please know that it means a great deal. It's like an affirmation from beyond. Thank you for posting it for us.

Sven,
Those are fantastic. Thanks for letting us see them.

I have no idea why, but the first one really struck something inside of me and I began weeping. (A therapist would have a field day with that information!)

The second is full of the most amazing photography I have ever seen.

Both amazing.
