'Nice imagery, nice textures, nice sounds, nice music.' - AfterTouch Magazine, Vol. 6 'Midnight Man' represents a mix of moods and soundscapes. Some of the selections on this disk were composed as a result of dreams - an attempt to capture in music specific dreams that have tended to stay with me for years. So . . . what kind of music is this? Whenever I'm asked to describe my music, my mind goes completely blank and the best I can come up with, in most cases, is, 'my own unique style'. I don't think there is a genre for what I do. Maybe that's a good thing, maybe not. I'll leave it up to the listener to 'pigeon hole' my stuff because I just don't feel comfortable doing it. I can't call it 'ambient' because I include a lot of dynamics in my music, exploring emotional states. Can't call it 'New Age' because, frankly, I hate that designation (I don't think it's ever done anyone any favors to be tagged with that label). However, pressed as I am in this intro to come up with something to help prospective buyers decide if they might like it, I guess the category 'virtual orchestra' at least describes in a broad way what to expect. I've always loved the Classics and though my compositions do not attempt to emulate the genre I think it is obvious that the Classics have influenced me. I also happen to like some of the so-called 'new age' composers, particularly the ones who create lively and dramatic music. ___ George Robertson lives a quiet and uncomplicated life, semi-retired at times and less so at others, in a far away land called Arizona, down near the Mexican border. A creator of music at heart but a locksmith by trade (and a professional photographer before that), he highly suspects that in a former life he was at least a musician, hopefully a good one. __ INSTRUMENTATION ---- Keyboards: Yamaha KX88 (controller) Roland D50 Roland Juno 106 Sound Modules: Emu Proteus 1 Emu Proteus 2 Korg M3R Korg DSM-1 Yamaha RX5 Kurzweil 1000SX Kurzweil 1000PX Oberheim Matrix 1000 Ensoniq Mirage Sampler Alesis HR16 ProFormance Piano Module Sound Effects and Processing: Digitech, Alesis, Roland, and Aphex.
