For some reason, I didn’t post last week, despite releasing a new video over on YouTube, so this week I have two videos to share!
The first is a cover of Anna’s Theme from a survival horror video game called Tormented Souls. It provides a strong contrast to a lot of the other music in game, which is designed to build tension. This piece is a piano solo and captures a combination of emptiness, longing, nostalgia and loss.
This week’s video is a performance of one of my own compositions – the one that started my journey as a composer. I actually wrote the initial draft of it back in 2013 and it’s gone through multiple revisions over the years before I settled on this one. If you’ve listened to my recent album, you’ll know it already. Despite having written it so long ago, I think that it’s still one of the strongest melodies that I’ve written.
