"Made In Atlanta" Kickstarter Launched

I just launched my Kickstarter for my album Made In Atlanta. I have a house in Atlanta that for all intent and purposes is my studio that I have dubbed as Music Box, I just happen to sleep there. :-) This is my second solo album. I have a strong belief in keeping with the true definition of a “solo” album in that I play and do everything. Written, arranged, performed, produced and mixed, I did everything but master it which I got a friend at Real 2 Reel Studios to do.

 

So I live in a city that has many different types of music and people that both fly in and out of here on a daily basis. I decided I would meld essences of this situation and call it Made In Atlanta...and because it actually is made in Atlanta.

 

The album is completely done and I am very pleased with the result!

"Air" Free Music Download Release

Hi there!

 

A little background on the song itself is that it is a slight adaptation from Overture No. 3 in D Major by Johann Sebastian Bach written somewhere around the year 1720.

The title “Air on the G String” comes from a violinist somewhere around the 1880's that made a nice arrangement of the piece and by transposing the key from D Major to C, allowed him to play the piece by only using one string on the violin (the g string).

So I'm calling this “Air” I suppose. (This arrangement is not all on the G string and I put it back in the original key of D Major.)

It's one of my favorite classical pieces and I decided to do the 4 parts using the Ebow on each.

 

Hope you enjoy it!
