Stay tuned for the upcoming launch of 'The Dying Piano', an international short film collaboration created by artist, Madeleine Ekeblad. The project     was developed with the assistance of up-and-coming award-winning cinematographer, Emily Tathem, along with original music which I composed specifically for the project.  The early 2017 launch date and location will be advised shortly. In the meantime, here's a small taste of my musical contribution...(click here to listen).

“The musical composition for the work chronicles the piano’s process of dying, as it shifts from moments of harmonic serenity to discord and despair. At times, the reach to resurrection seems possible, until death appears inevitable. The end arrives, with increasing dissonance, stilted and gasping, until the final solitary note.”

"Michael's musical vision transcends the humdrum constraints of mere genre, offering up a broad palette of sound that evokes windswept landscapes, rolling seas and peaceful dreams. Above all, his compositions express something the world needs now - a sense of innner calm"

Watch Elton John's fun improv' style as he shows how it's possible to "set music to almost any lyrics". And so he does - about a microwave oven!
