Large Canvas, Small Brush (20:54)
Progressive Rock

A long experimental instrumental with sections influenced by Schoenberg and Minimalism. I've included a section that would be impossible for live musicians but can be played easily by a sequencer and sampler.
I wanted to be more experimenta

Summer Ends With A Storm (17:32)
Progressive Rock

I wrote the basic chords and melodies on the keyboard. I used some Debussey influenced chords and ended up with some parts that would fit a James Bond film score!
The track expanded a lot when I recorded it. I just kept thinking of different variations. I read about how music came from the rhythm and sounds we hear in the womb - so some variations have that influence.

The Whisper Of Power (4:31)
Progressive Rock

This is a fast riffy instrumental piece for guitars, keyboards, bass and drums, written in 11/8 time and alternating whole tone scales with "normal" keys. Driving home I heard "A Love Supreme" by John Coltrane and I wanted to play a guitar solo like he played the saxophone.

Oubliette (7:24)
Progressive Rock

A Progressive Metal influence shows this time. I confess - I've been listening to Tool. The sections are in 3/4 5/4 4/4 and then back to 3/4 again. The scale is Am with a C sharp - giving the music an unusual "middle eastern" feel.
