So, this is completely different!! In a homage to my favourite place to watch live music in the land...Ronnie Scotts....I have put together a groovin' jazz instrumental piece with a 'live' feel....!! Not really fusion as such, but added to the…

Something quite short, and hopefully very jolly this time around - the joy of children playing!!

It is said that the Valley of the Kings is understandably a haunted and sacred place...hence the start and end of this composition, being no. 7 in the Fusion Soundscapes project....and hopefully evoking a sense of awe and majesty walking in the…

So, as a major change from countryside walking...a random leap for no. 6 in this series to visit the Greek Goddess of the Hunt...Artemis. More discordant, but hopefully capturing some drama!!

Just a shortie for no. 5 - a peaceful ramble in the country......

My latest Soundscape hopefully evokes an atmospheric evening in the desert, as outside the tent the girls make their mournful cries before the local musicians strike up a dance beat.....

Cover number 2 - I've given this Paul Carrack classic a 'live' feel - don't ask why...other than I was inspired to lay down my version of the track after seeing him and his band in concert here earlier in the year....just brilliant!!

So, a change from the Orchestral stuff...! Cover version time!! As a young keyboard player in a brilliant band back in the 1970's, we covered several Elton John songs and especially from the iconic Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album. The show piece…

For no. 3 in this soundscape compilation, I have imagined strolling along the waters edge, contemplating life on a blissful calm day with the relaxing shoreline sounds all around me....!

So for the second in the Fusion Soundscape project, I envisaged a few characters meeting up in one of the lonely passageways in the Underground near midnight, and having a bit of a soulful jam....! Hopefully have captured a little of the bleakness…

OK, so after the Lockdown Orchestrations project, I have moved to a new series of pieces I am calling Fusion Soundscapes. What I am trying to do here is paint a picture using some sound effects, and with a mix of orchestral and electric/rock…

So, to number 10, and what will be the last one I think for this most enjoyable Lockdown project. A shortish one, and fittingly perhaps called 'Finale', I brought in the big guns with the Cathedral organ, and with a bit of a stereotype last few…

This was my first collaboration with Naomi, and her lovely voice is perfect for this song. She has kindly allowed me to add it to my Paul Matthews Experiment project files....engineered and mastered by the guru that is 13111y....

After the visit to Spain in no. 7, I found myself drifting over the continent of Asia for no. 8 !! Hopefully have captured some of the flavours of that area of the World..... As ever, 13111y supplied the final mastering.....cheers Billy.

A real change of tone here....introducing classical guitars into the orchestra! Trying here to evoke the feel and spirit of the home of Flamenco, envisaging a cellar bar of rustic Spain, with the lady's skirts twirling and the hands and feet…

So, after the manic mayhem of 'Hunted' here is a rather more romantic piece for no. 6, and that I have subtitled with the French word for 'Love'......

A different style again here...in 6/8 time. I have now added one word descriptors to my Orchestrations series, to make the title a little less bland...and to give a clue as to the content!! I envisaged a furious chase through the jungle, perhaps…
