Get the Ringtone...


Description: Subtitled, 'Phantasmagoria,' 'Ottoman Odyssey,' is an arrangement derived from an earlier production comprised of a haunting motif that availed itself to mystery and ethnic interpretation.  The 'world music fusion' that resulted from the additional production incorporates instrumentation from the Arabian Peninsula that includes: Dumbek, Oud, Turkish Ney, Doudouk and sundry ethnic percussion with drums, bass, electric guitar, cello and viola sections.

Story Behind the Music:  This composition was penned late in 2004 at the suggestion of Danney Alkana of 'Bonanza Music.'  An industry listing had beckoned for music to CSI [a program I have never seen] and I had absolutely nothing to contribute.  Over the next couple of days I arranged a track that was not picked up but nonetheless might have future potential. I took the track into Patrick Collins at 'Collinator Studios' where we 'finished' the basic tracks.  And there it sat until July of 2008, when I reconsidered the original arrangement in my new studio, 'On Top Of a Cloud' in Lake Tahoe.

What is a LandscapeHD film?
LandscapeHD films combine the worlds greatest classical and instrumental music with breathtaking HD imagery from around the world
Which comes first the music or the pictures?
LandscapeHD is first and foremost a music television network. We start with the music and then create a production that is sympathetic to it.


Although only available in standard definition, LandscapeHD will be available as part of this programming to promote its music video download store and build a new audience amongst cable companies - many of whom will never before have been able to see Landscape and its format.

Nick Austin, Chairman of LandscapeHD says "Art Channel is a really good television concept that will also be very good for Landscape. Now viewers can see our HD music clips before they buy them in HD or the AppleTV format. It will give people a very good idea of what the LandscapeHD channel will be doing next year and forms part of our co-operative marketing venture to build awareness of the LandscapeHD and Art Channel brands"

"...there's no doubt about the quality of the's excellent...Nice work..."

---Taxi, August, 18, 2008

"...solid ambient moods...interesting guitar sound...melodic theme...good groove...the arrangement evolves with balance while accenting the main motif...excellent concept...the tracks are musical while dramatic.  Your writing skills are in top form with an inventive arranging style.  A key factor in creating the right impact (with the broadcast medium) lies with the arranging design of the music.  I like the way you make good use of good melodies via creative arranging, good job.  The tracks establish solid themes and progress from there with an even treatment enabling the listener to follow the journey with ease.  The writing is so vast that supervisors will view each piece as independent islands full of relative possibilities.  Keep writing and good luck!"

---Taxi, August 25, 2008

"You very well may be a "musical maverick" from my interpretation of your biography...[this] piece shows a lot of ambition in it's overall scope..."

---Taxi, December 11, 2008

"You're impressively all over the map as a composer. These pieces certainly demonstrate a wide stylistic range..."

---Taxi, August 27, 2009
