Welcome to shimmer song

shimmer song is the creation of San Francisco-based musician, composer and producer Peter Cole (thats me). I create many different types of music for film, web and multimedia. For my shimmer song project, I focus mostly on instrumental, piano-based music that moves between classical, Jazz, ambient soundscapes and World music - using both acoustic and electronica overtones; George Winston and Debussy meet Pink Floyd and Peter Gabriel!

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 ;-)

New Shimmer Song CD! Release the Clouds


I’m excited to announce the release of a new CD, “Release the Clouds.”

‘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. Check out full songs on the music page and buy songs or the full CD at CDBaby!
