Piano Strings & Other Things
Born in 1963, David Turner is a unique and talented piano performer. Tangerine Dream, Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart, Kitaro, Vangelis and Yanni inspires him. David's dream to compose, record, publish, lease, arrange, and orchestrate his own music. He also would like to perform his own music on a Bosendorfer Imperial Grand Piano. Finally he hopes that someday he can hear his own compositions played by a symphony orchestra. Here's a bit of history. In 1989, David produced Amiga music mods, which were released worldwide. The first mod, 'Darkness and Light' earned international acclaim which used a goth metal sound. This sound used pipe organ, distorted guitars and harsh vocals set to a soothing orchestral choral mood. Darkness and Light earned David's reputation for sounding dark yet, he had other styles. In 1991, David created another mod, 'Metal Jazz', merging Jazz elements with a distorted guitars. Later, he created the smooth romantic piano sound in 'Shelley' (on the CD), 'Dreams' and the fast paced action thriller movie theme, 'Pulsar 2000'. These pieces soon found thier way worldwide, thanks to something called portals, which were gateways to the Internet. In 1992, David produced 'Celestial Sunlight Journey into the Afterlife', on cassette, hoping a record label would sign him up. He sent music to all parties interested. In 1993, David met screenwriter, Randy Hall and read a few scripts. One script inspired the relaxing children's theme, 'Seahorse Cove' (also on this CD). For two more years David submitted his music to many more record labels. In 1995 David Turner Music was born. David used his studio and recorded 'Piano String and Other Things', using a Commodore Amiga. He composed a lighter more relaxing style mood for his mother. The following year, she passed away. This CD is in memory of his mother hence, the first track is called 'To Mother' and dedicated to mothers all around the world. David states, 'If it wasn't for my mother and father, who supported me along the way, I would not be where I am today. Thank you Mom and Dad!' Today, David is a respected film composer. His first credit is 'Music Composer' for the movie 'The Neighborhood'. David has over 70 tracks of original music which he can recall without rehearsal. Stay tuned for more updates.
