Welcome to shimmer song
I love to collaborate with other musicians, artists, technologists, filmmakers, students. I engineer and produce music, video and multimedia in my own studio and I play multiple instruments (not all at once) in many styles. So please contact me if you want to work on a project together; use any of my compositions in your project(s); or if you want me to help compose a soundtrack for your next film ;-)
Yay! It’s that time of the year for a new CD release. ‘Can You Hear the Ocean?’ combines melodic piano with acoustic guitar and strings, to create a colorful mix of melodic and ambient soundscapes that move between uplifting passionate pieces, and softer romantic compositions. I wrote and recorded this CD while living on the beach in Southern California over the summer and winter of 2013. Mia, my 2-year-old daughter, created the art for the cover of the CD! Visit CDBaby to listen and download the music!No comments
‘We Watched the Water Fall’ was recorded between December 2011 and December 2012 in San Francisco and in Huntington Beach, California. People have described the music on this album as a haunting, dreamy and romantic mix of neo classical piano, lush ambient soundscapes, and smooth, thoughtful grooves. Although piano-based, the album blends in classical guitar and strings, and has splashes of World music instrumentation and electronica.

‘Release the Clouds’ is a slight departure from the usual piano-focused Shimmer Song music. This CD combines soft piano with classical guitar to create a colorful mix of melodic and ambient soundscapes that blend classical, World music and electronica. I like to describe the music as earthy – not even sure what that means, but it sounds right! I wrote and recorded this over the summer and winter of 2011.

I’m trying hard to finish the next Shimmer Song CD by Xmas. This one combines piano and classical acoustic guitar with some soundscape-style textures; I really like it. It’s almost done – stay tuned!No comments
I’m always on the look-out for new, interesting music services – particularly those that support us independent folks! VibeDeck appears to be a good, web-based platform for musicians to sell their music, directly to fans, without having to pay a third party (other than Paypal.) It always surprises me when services like this charge nothing AND, do not serve up advertising either – how do they make any money? I guess they will figure that part out.No comments
It’s finally out: Shimmer Song’s sixth album, And the Moon Winked Back. The music on this album is an eclectic mix of melodic solo piano, ambient soundscapes and soft grooves that blend classical, jazz, Middle Eastern and electronica. There are some song samples available on the Music page, as well as on Jango Radio. The full CD is available for purchase at CD Baby. Check it out!
Sonia and I have been traveling in Northern California since Xmas day. Having just landed at an Internet Cafe in Guerneville, by the Russian River, I remembered that it’s time to wish everyone a happy holiday. Only a few more days left of 2010!
I’ve just finished recording and mixing a new Shimmer Song album. I still have a bit more mastering to complete and then it will be ready to go! Keep a look out for a CD release update in the next few days.4 comments
