Always trying new ideas!! With a symphonic choir squeezed into the studio alongside the mighty cathedral organ, it was time to try out a gothic style game/movie trailer!!

Here is a little experimental instrumental piece I had almost forgotten about....interesting experiment, with the percussion elements consisting of, amongst other things, metal hangers, door latch, scissors, paper being shaken and finger snaps!!

**Song-writing Demo for FAWM 2022** Song number 1 Written Sunday 6th February 2022 **** OK, this is a bit of a departure for me - posting songwriting demos. This is a one mic recording made this morning in the living room, touch of reverbs…

**** Jan 17 2015 - Remixed. I was always kinda disappointed with what the original mix sounded like. Listening to it the other day I realised what it is - I'd mixed the vocals too loud. This reduced the "stereo" and killed off a lot of the life…

A symphonic overture. The piece has a fast, rhythmically propulsive 'A' section, a contrasting meditative 'B' section, and a recap with some extensions. This piece was a finalist prize winner in the 2008 'Realize Music' contest, an international…

(Remastered 22/10/2021) And here's another song from 1994, with a sparkling new "Andrew Russe Band" arrangement fresh from the broom-cupboard. Like most of my songs, it was written with an acoustic guitar, a pen, and an A4 pad. The ones…

That's a fine piece of noodling. Loved the opening piano. And the percussion elements work nicely.

Having put together an orchestral version of this amazing song, the haunting composition by Michael Kiwanuka (theme from Big Little Lies, Sky Atlantic) here is my take on a conventional band arrangement, and featuring the lovely voice of my friend…

Don't know the original, but I'm digging this. Mighty cool vocal.

Particularly following a very recent piece, Nordic Noir, I may have slipped into movie/TV/Game trailer mode!!! So here is a piece featuring solo violin that has been titled An Awakening...and listeners can then put their own imagination to work…

Originally classically trained, but then a Rock influenced musician throughout life, playing keys in very many bands, duos etc, over the years, and also including for a few years from 2008 a member of a touring Pink Floyd tribute. Currently an occasional guest member of the local rock and blues band, Dangerous Things. However, in this enforced Lockdown I have gone back to my more classical roots, and really majoring in on short epic style movie themes and trailers. I have completed a series of what I have called Lockdown Orchestrations, and now moved on to Fusion Soundcapes. Also, very much enjoying various musical collaborations with local musical colleagues - in the virtual world until the Lockdown is over, and where I am calling these the Paul Matthews Experiments!
