When people work together, amazing things happen! This album is the result of several years of composing, performing, recording, and engineering. Now we’ve finally completed the initial stage of producing a limited run. We plan to put the project on Kickstarter in order to really promote it and have it produced for distribution. For now, we have a limited number of copies and its great to see the project finally making it full circle, going out into the world for people to enjoy.
Eternal Dream is more than a music album, it is an experience of collaboration, of the coming together of unique individuals with a common purpose, the purpose of creating something beautiful and by doing so, making the world more beautiful. Spanning the centuries, this music album contains the artistry of composers from Europe and America dating from the Baroque age to today, reaching into the future as new means of artistic expression are employed to communicate eternal realities such as love, life, nature, and the spiritual. The musicians, sound engineer, and graphic artist featured are colleges and friends of mine whose talent and artistry I deeply respect. They each bring something very special to the album.
Several tracks on the album are my original compositions. They are recorded in the studio. Here are two videos of live versions of “Crystal Cove” and “Angels Landing”, both of which are featured on the album.
My original purpose in creating this compilation was to find a forum with which to share my original compositions, but the project immediately became more than that because through the process I discovered that a single artist cannot make even one note on his or her own. My complete and sincere gratitude goes out to all of the musicians, sound engineers, teachers, colleges, family and friends who made this dream become a reality. The purpose of Eternal Dream is now to serve as a representation of what can be accomplished when people work together, maintaining their uniqueness and identity while coming from a place of communication, respect, and creativity. In today’s world with so much strife and discord, we need to make more opportunities like this so as to live in peace, understanding, and joy. Your support of this project helps make the world more beautiful!
