Rhapsody in Green
Rhapsody in Green was recorded in 1990, but was only released in 2002. The compositions were mostly created on a Ensoniq SQ-80 Keyboard workstation with various synth modules as slaves. The exception was the opening track Tones of Emotion which was composed on guitar. On this tune I was inspired by the German music of Neu, Michael Rother, and Cluster.The other compositions are more snappy, somewhat like the Harold F theme which was popular in the Eighties.(written by Harold faltameyer for the film 'Beverly hills cop').Track 7 'My Heart Commands It' is the second version of the song that I recorded. The original was recorded in l982 and is unreleased. Larry Smiley aka Smiling Eye October 2002.
