The Composer in his Garret


Original YT playout date: 10 November 2009
Duration: 11:37

I have been forced to record more of my own awful compositions and to compose more too, since youtube is coming down on a ton of bricks when people put existing music on their films. Don’t blame me, blame them. Anyway, in this film the precise moment I came up with the tune “Don’t Give Up” recently shown here, and also a bit more adlibbing to some flight footage. The arabic sounding bit was composed earlier by me in Moscow. I close off with a few bars of Dvorak’s “Rusalka”, or at least my variation on it.
