Shimmer Song is the creation of San Francisco-based musician, composer and producer Peter Cole (that’s me). Ever since I made my first drum set out of coffee cans when I was ten years old, I have loved to perform, compose and produce all styles of music: classical, punk, Latin, world music, rock, jazz, electronic, new age, experimental. I particularly enjoy combining these different styles to make something completely new.
My interest in these different genres has influenced each piece of music that I create. For my Shimmer Song project, I focus mostly on instrumental, piano-based music that moves between neo classical, ambient soundscapes and World music - using both acoustic and electronic overtones. I also enjoy writing music for visuals (film, photography) and often visualize movement, scenes, characters and moods while I’m composing.
