So here we go as promised!
In this post I am going to share some of my personal favorites, not people’s. For people’s you can listen here.
I found myself more excited about sharing these because today I had a recording session with my friends/bosses at work. We finally recorded our Theme song for the company. I will share it once it is finalized. A bunch of great people indeed.
The pieces I am sharing today are part of my last compilation, it was were recorded early 2006 (Jan) before I moved to Dubai.

Unusual name I know, however there is a long story behind it. Anyway, this was the result of an unexpected lonely Valentine day at home. This reflects my latest music direction – I started integrating more spiritual / ethnic, with a base of rock/metal of course. I cannot help it that is my root.
Please Please Please
Very persistent as the name implies. This instrumental is a result of bad communication, you know when you try to communicate something to someone but they do not get it and seem to somehow refuse to? Yep, that is it. The piece reflects how the feeling builds up as the frustration builds and reaches climax eventually. It is screaming “PLEASE UNDERSTAND”. My favorite part is towards the end. Could have used better recording for this one.
Through Hard Times
Need I say more? The name says it all. This represents just any bad phase you pass through, how it progresses from one stage to the other. Suspense at some parts and anger at others, and finally almost giving up.
Looking at this now it is interesting to see how I started integrating more instruments into my music and experimenting more with the ranges. The piano might not be the best in the world, and that is for a handful of reasons; I never learned piano, I am a guitarist at origin which means I might structure songs in guitar approach rather than piano, and because I actually did not play it, I wrote the music but a software played it me
