My latest video is a combined version of two of my compositions – An Ill Presence (orchestrated) and To Arms! (rock version). They were originally written as a pair and were released that way on my solo piano album, Let the Journey Begin!.
When I was working on the orchestrated and rock versions, I made and released them one at a time, and while I think they can stand alone, I also thought it would be good to recombine them as originally intended. Music can take on a different feeling depending on the context that it’s in, which is why the original release had them combined into one track, and why I released a whole album rather than individual singles.
A big thanks to Ainsley Stones, of Girl Gone Bad, for the guitar solo in To Arms!. Please check out their music: https://www.youtube.com/c/GirlGoneBad
Many thanks also to Thomas Slimm for writing and programming the drums.
