Sonic Cinema

Sounds, Visions and Insights by Brian Skutle

Happy New Year! Hope everyone’s having a good 2006 so far. Just wanted to let you know about a couple of music related things, including two new releases online. The two new pieces online are “Danger of the Frontier” (available at www.sonic-cinema.com) and “A New Old West” (available on www.myspace.com/brianskutle). They are the final two pieces of my series of Western-inspired pieces I’ve been working on since starting to compose again in 2004. “Frontier” is a piece featuring flute, guitar, and bass guitar (all electronically recorded) and moody vocal performances by
both myself (this isn’t a typo) and my mother Vicki, while “A New Old West” is a work for strings, assorted wind instruments, and marimba that was electronically recorded, and serves as the epic finale for this series of pieces (it clocks in at just under 8 minutes). I hope you check them out, and remember, feedback is always welcome.

With the conclusion of these pieces, my collection of Western-inspired pieces is finished. What does this mean? It means that as soon as I get some cover art created, I will be able to release my first CD in 6 years in “Sonic Visions of a New Old West.” I’m very excited about finally giving people a chance to hear this completed work. It’ll be worth the wait.

Also, on a somewhat related note, on January 29 I’ll be filming the short film I mentioned in my 2005 Summary entitled “Unwinnable Hand” with several friends. We just did a read-through of the script- which I wrote- last night. This is gonna be interesting…

That’s all for now. I’ve had some computer issues recently that have prevented me from getting everything music-related I wanted to get done finished. Hopefully, that will be rectified for a later news item.

Thanks for listening,

Brian Skutle
