“Float” by Barry Hartglass

“Float” by Barry Hartglass

Blog, Composition Clients
“Float” is a word that’s used a lot in yoga when discussing alignment and controlled movement. Written to accompany a set of Kundalini Yoga workouts, this piece settles into a deep, dark “floating” space with drones, slow melodies, and lots of delay. Bill, one of the instructors, says this track gets him particularly “high” during meditation. Keep reading for the original blog. Full story: The twelfth track on my SoundCloud Playlist is “Float” from the Spirit Trainers' Companion Music CD to the DVD "Practical Yoga for Everyday People." After composing all of the music for their 2005 TV series, "Guru2Go" (15 episodes on Discovery's FitTV), I was asked to compose the music for the Spirit Trainers' yoga DVD a year later.  To create the Companion Music CD, I selected my favorite compositions from…

“Venus Lock” by Barry Hartglass

“Venus Lock” by Barry Hartglass

Blog, Composition Clients
A “venus lock” is a mudra in which the fingers interlock and the hands fold. Written to accompany a set of Kundalini Yoga workouts, this piece uses synthetic sounds to create a light, compelling groove. The melodies are exotic and free-flowing, but the drum loops and non-traditional instrumentation keeps it modern and “practical.” Keep reading for the original blog.

“Tarot” is an original composition for Karen Marcello on flute, with Karen Lindquist on harp. This piece plays with phrasing, where the two instruments avoid attacking notes at the same time. Karen is a psychic, who reads the Tarot. The music attempts an exotic, mysterious and ancient Egyptian atmosphere. Keep reading for the original blog. Full story: The eighth track on my SoundCloud Playlist is "Tarot" by Karin Marcello.

"Goodnight My Hero" by Victoria Faiella

"Goodnight My Hero" by Victoria Faiella

Blog, Composition Clients
“Goodnight My Hero” was born from a moody piano sketch that Victoria Faiella was drawn to. Time passed and Victoria came up with some ideas that didn’t stick. And then, tragically, unexpectedly — her father passed away. Translating loss to art, beautifully melodies and lyrics came forth, set to an emotional string arrangement. Keep reading for the original blog. Full story: The fourth track on my SoundCloud Playlist is "Goodnight My Hero" by Victoria Faiella. Victoria and I have written a number of songs together over the years. At one point we decided to see if I had anything in my "pile" of unfinished compositions that might be a good starting point for a new song. I went through what I had and chose a few things to play for her on…
