Blooming Where Planted – Unsigned & Unlimited – The Power Of She Ep.1 Pt.1

This is the first of a four part series featuring women who are unsigned recording artists from the Cleveland metropolitan area. Although there will be more artists featured, the focus, as of the next three parts of this episode, is charity starting at home. In other words, I’m starting with what’s right here in my own front/back yards.

This episode features Barabara Barrett, a jazz, classical/opera, gospel and soul singer from Cleveland who has deep roots in her hometown jazz scene.

She can be found by clicking http://barbarabarretandco.com

String Theory – House Of Yarn

So for those who haven’t heard, I released an instrumental project called String Theory. This is, as my wife calls it, music for creatives. 

This project is the musical interpretation of my wife’s fiber art collections. House Of Yarn was inspired by works that will amazingly accessorize any outfit.

The production concept for this track is cinematic and orchestral in texture with a house feel. I created the whole peice on my iPad in my dining room with stock orchestral samples provided in the Garage Band app. There were some filler textures needed so I played those myself and programmed the drums to make it “jack”. (Jack is a terminology used to describe house music as funky and danceable). 

Ideally I envisioned the Akron Symphony Orchestra along with a DJ doing this song for a “haute couture” fashion show for my wife. We can dream right? 

You can purchase or stream the song by clicking on the link ——->House Of Yarn. It’s Orchestra meets 808. Take a listen. ENJOY!!!
