**** 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…

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 written like this all have…

And this is the last of the little threesome of In Your Hands, Little Thing, and this one, When I Try To Be Me. It's in the key of 4th fret and was written just over a month later than the other two, on 19th March 1994. I'm not sure I did…

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!
