So Who is Listening?

January 27, 2020

Q. But aren’t there people out there that love the generic mainstream pop?A. No! No one is lapping it up. No one here, no one anywhere. The Big 3 Labels, parent companies own the media and talk shows that review and promote their bad music. They make it sound like this music is popular. But all sales are way down, and last year was the first to match the high year of sales, 1999! Virtually everyone I’ve ever talked to is like you reading this, and has to block out corporate and search out good music. That should tell you it’s a marketing scheme, not the will of anyone anywhere . No one seems to know this, and so they really think there is some weird people out there that love this junk and hate good music. No

My Style of Music , a letter to a music friend.

My Style of Music
Let me add this thought. I did traditional rock recordings in the eighties; guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, but then evolved to a simpler style, back to basics that I really like. So, should I studio record this or any of my songs, it would not be a retro band attempt from the style of 60 years ago, but a new more simple arrangement, in the new style that most don’t seem to like much, or at best are bewildered that it doesn’t sound like it “should”, in the old style.
At most any studio recording of mine now would involve a lead singer, 2 background singers and one or two standard guitars, and the comments would still be: I want to hear the old style, don’t you? No, not anymore. There were the Beatles and 60 years of imitators in my opinion. We don’t need me to be another. Yes many here are doing original and fine work in this style, and it suits them. Your work is a fine example, but it is not for me anymore.

Dear Reader,

This week I posted 8 of my short, keyboard compositions,.
They are a sort of a cross between Bach and Tchaikovsky !
Look for lots of melody, atonal is out for me.

Please give these a thumbs up! Comments are welcome too!

This is one of hundreds of keyboard bagatelles that I’ve written. Most
are a minute or so long. My piano playing is average at best, so it’s
the composition that is important.

Modern classical music? Got to be atonal, strident, cold, and weird,
right? Don’t think so!!! I try to make these bagatelles melodic,
simple, beautiful, elegant, and fun!

Most have a 2 part structure with a major theme, then a minor middle
then a repeat of the original theme. Join the music revolution!
