ClassicalConnect.com is your virtual concert hall. It offers independent classical musicians the opportunity to be heard around the world while providing music lovers with a large selection of music performed by some of the most interesting musicians around.

If you are a casual music lover, you can listen to our playlists or browse through the music, selecting your favorite instruments. We have a great library of complete performances, from fleeting mazurkas to long sonatas and concertos. The library grows continuously with uploads from all over the world. Some of the compositions have been recorded by different performers, which we think creates a wonderful opportunity for comparing the music's different interpretations: our site has a unique feature created specifically for this purpose.

Ephemeral mists

Ephemeral Mists is a new musical project by composer Brett Branning (also the composer for The synthetic dream foundation & Abandoned Toys). "Moon Ritual" is the debut cd, out now on Mythical records.

The sound of the project is best described as downtempo ambient new age music mixed with ethnic world musics in the vein of "Karma" era Delerium, Amethystium, and Steve Roach. Its really a very intoxicatingly beautiful creation and I sincerely recommend it to anyone into newage music styles. I'm looking forward to further releases by this project.

For ambient lovers
I want to share several works in the drone ambient genre. Some of you would find it great as a background, some might even appreciate it as something to listen to with great attention - depends on what you choose.

Howdy to everyone!

Hope it is ok to write such posts in this community.

Thing is, I want to advertise a small service I've started some time ago - it might be very useful for composers if they want to present their music on the internet in a compact customizable way.

The service is called Disc Shelf and allows musicians to upload their music and create virtual compact discs with cover art and a booklet, all colors customizable. The album indeed looks more like a compact disc rather than just a web page with a tracklist.

I am also working on the ability to embed your album to other webpages. For instance, to LJ.

Anyway, check it out at http://www.disc-shelf.com
The service is not bloated with unnecessary features and is very easy to use.

ps: registered in this community not only to advertise, will post some of music too! I write mostly ambient music with a lot of theoretical basis behind it.

Body_and_ Soul_2.0 >>

SOLARIS project

Nu-Jazz from Schostakovich’s motherland ;)

The original version of famous 1930 “Body and Soul” standard, that features a sophisticated polyphonic “basso ostinato” middle section along with modern beats!

Beautiful Chorus 1, dramatic Chorus 2; short reflection, crescendo and first climax in Bridge, then polyphonic journey through subconsciousness and violin solo as the general climax …post-catharsis major Reprise and dissolve-in-the-light Coda.

You have NEVER heard a song like that

Body and Soul, 6.1M >>

 Hello everyone... i just wanted to write a little bit about Stephane Meer, who i work with and try and encourage you to go and check out his music and see what you think.
Stephane is a french composer who got sick of writing music for adverts and things and so decided to start his own project so he could be totally in charge of it. 
his new project is called Helena and the Orchestra of the World of Mist. It is a new generation audio book, but they story, which is illustrated with photos and pictures, is really driven by the music. Stephane describes the music as symphonic and gothic rock, it is really interesting and novel. You can download the music, story etc all for free on the website (www.musicaltales.com)
The story is dedicated to Helene Grimaud,the virtuoso pianist who has set up a wolf sanctuary out side of New York. Stephane has a huge love for animals and this is clear in the story.
So please check it out, he has just launched it and i think it is really interesting and innovative.
p.s. it will be available in russian, chinese, south korean really soon

New recording

I finally got a recording of a piece that I had performed by a women's choir this past December. The text is from W.B. Yeats' "The Mother of God"

I've uploaded the mp3 to my webspace here. :-)

It's not a perfect recording (a few tuning issues and other outright wrong notes/counting), but overall, it's okay.

Abandoned Toys!!!!!!

Abandoned Toys makes some of the most beautiful new age music that I have come across lately. If you like the genre, you should really look into their album, "The witch's garden".

I need some suggestions and feedback on some songs. I have been trying to find a singer for months and it seems that once I show people my music, they don't reply back. So basically I need to know if I am just not that good of a songwriter or is it just that people are flaky! Maybe a combination of both!

The site is http://www.myspace.com/nicholassatchell

Please keep in mind that I am aware that the vocals suck because I can't sing! However if you think that it's because of my vocal presentation that people don't reply back then please do comment! Any kind of constructive criticism will suffice!

Thanks so much!

How do you get in the right frame of mind for composing?
I'll have a text that I want to set to music, but then I'll try writing something and it'll turn out to be completely wrong.
I find it very difficult to get into the right frame of mind.
How do you get the right kind of mood for certain types of music?
What if you want to write melancholy music, what if you want to write uplifting happy music?

Any suggestions?

Current Mood: frustrated
