A lot has happened!

New pieces, new albums! I have a new album up... "Wavelength". Its 1/2 completed. My goal was to have commercial quality pieces. Well? They are not clean enough to be commercial, but they are my best work. So, I have to be thankful for that much. Enjoy!

We're Back!

I rearranged the albums and made some upgrades to the site. All new Kavamusic. Enjoy!

I had some ideas for pieces that had me considering an album concept called "Visitors". That cover was on display here for a while.

I have replaced that with a new concept "Aqua", the Latin for water. I have several pieces nearly finished that will go much better with a water theme. Look for samples very soon, maybe today!

I have made some updates to the site. Also I doctored my photo so you don't have to look at my uncensored ugly mug.

At this point, I am thinking of ditching the "Visitors" album concept. I won't throw away any music in progress, but the title, theme, and artwork for the album will change. I'm toying with the idea of "Jungle Music" with illustrations of jungle animals holding jazz instruments. This will be more in keeping with an overall "all creatures and all people" theme that I am trying to create for this site and for my music in general.

Whoa! Five months have passed since I posted anything on this site. I was working on music. I just didn't have anything new in a finished state.

The Carnival album has been eliminated and recombined with Aqua and Polyphonic Journey.

I was listening to my own clips on this website today for quality control. Listening through PC speakers was very disappointintg indeed. The PC speakers not only muffle the sound, they make the compositions sound "awful", to use a polite word. Please listen to the clips using quality headphones. Even a mid quality headphone would sound much better than your PC speakers.

Just look for the light green headphones port on your computer. Most PCs have them on both the front and the back. Some have them just in back.

If you don't have quality headphones, may I suggest
"Sony MDR-V6 Dynamic Stereo Headphones for Digital". This is what sound studio technicians and many DJ's wear. These headphones are still available. Search for them on the web by the exact name and model number. There are other Sony model numbers that are close. Don't get those. Get the exact model number that I have listed. I own two pairs of them. They are superb headphones, and they only cost about $70.00. They sound better than headphones costing hundreds of dollars more and they are easily powered by an iPod Nano. If you are a music fan, you should have these anyways. They sound better than than my living room tower speakers which cost $1500.00 for the pair.

All the samples that I intend to post for Polyphonic Journey are now up on the Polyphonic page. Go have a listen.

I can now devote some time to getting this site listed, and then its back to work on Carnival. All the songs are started. I seem to have run out of inspiration to finish them off, however. Maybe when the hot weather breaks, more ideas will come to me.

This hot weather makes me want to pray that Congress retains its current party in the majority. They have a climate change bill ready to go. If the clinically insane tea partiers take power, there's no chance of hearing anything more about the climate. The last resistance to a full corporate takeover of the USA will be gone.   BP, Exxon, Google, Verizon, Walmart, and AIG will be in charge of our country.

With more time on my hands than I planned for, I am getting the first samples up already. All the Polyphonic journey samples could be up in a week's time.

I will be creating a feedback page. Let me know what you think of the music and the site. Be honest, or your comments won't do me any good.
