03/16/2006 DEREK "On The Beach"

These instrumental compositions reflect the feelings and the dreams of the hedonist whom I am. Mainly influenced by my journeys in Asia, notament in India, I try to tell various anecdotes and feelings that I cannot express by the words. Sometimes dark, sometimes brightened up, my music reveals in a way, my philosophic point of view of the life in front of natural elements or not, which surround us. 2 sides by the Yin and by the Yang join to create the harmony.

12/03/2006 DEREK "Wild and Free"

"Wild and Free" is an instrumental compilation of various feelings. An invitation in the journey where the west and the east merge varied atmospheres with guitar for witness.
I qualify my music as Progressive-World-Rock because she wants to be free under her aspects without borders.
Wild, by the fact of composing like that comes by keeping the first inspiration.
