Music That Engages The Imagination.
All ELIOT’S MUSIC is improvised and then edited into its final version. This is the secret explaining its flow and spontaneity. You never know what’s coming next because neither did I.
This music is best listened to when you can focus on it rather than as background or party music. Many report that they like listening to it in their cars. Here are some blurbs on some of the pieces:
“Journey” defies clarification. It began as a single improvisation that came when I thought of a dear old friend and mentor, his brain and his mind. Various listeners report hearing forest spirits, dancing lights, whales and porpoises playing, dragonflies, a leaf riding downstream. Some titles suggested to me for it are: Joie de Vivre, Joie d’Esprit, Light of the Shadow of the Moon, and Journey of the Soul.
“Gratitude” came from a state of gratitude.
“Wonderland Prance” had no particular discernible inspiration, but much thanks to Bach’s Inventions.
“Inaugural Bash” was improvised on Jan 20, 2009 after watching the Obamas in Washington and sharing in the celebratory mood of the country.
“Xmas Bagatelle” is extracted from music made to accompany a reading of Dylan Thomas’ “A Child’s Christmas in Wales”, composed as a stocking stuffer.
“Children Of War” was inspired by the Israeli-Lebanese conflict. I thought of the children, the children on both sides, sad and suffering in disconnected parallel play, unaware of the commonality including them.
“Seduction” begins in the first moment of attraction, progresses through its wondrous dance of desire, and culminates at the end of its rush into the inevitable finish, blasé and over.
“Scherzo for Brass” is a scherzo for brass.
Never know what’s coming next.
