JVJ the Works
From the very beginning each piece was constructed with the motivation to create a unique, from scratch feel with no set limitations. While my favorites are 'The Walk' and 'The Hand of God' with their roving techno steps, most of my listeners find the relaxing tone set by 'Chinathing' piano and string ensemble to be their pick. Many of these pieces were originally constructed to have lyrics added and eventually become a contemporary Christian Rock style; however, my wife and I found them to exist quite perfectly with diverse harmony as instrumentals. New Beginnings was actually created later in this project as a full orchestra style instrumental embodying the life style of that first magical moment you can never forget. The Walk was actually born from a redundancy of practicing the same piano piece over and over, but was given new life when a melody was found while walking out on a warm summer's evening. Chinathing immediately became everybody's favorite. It is the second in a in the works collection of piano pieces titled 'Around the World' to be fully released in the future. Morning was born from the serenity found when watching the sun rise in late spring. Drag Racer was created from the building excitement of watching powerful machines face off in a battle of speed. Gruuve is simply that, a beat that can't be beat. I Love the Lord was my first lyrical structure embedded into guitar and piano. Praise is the simplest of tunes carried around from my beginning in music. Industrial's techno trance build out of the experience of working with a metal factory. You Know What I'm Talking About, title given by my wife, is a music journey of awakening. The Hand of God is a presentation of wide visionary support, continuing into the future. Finally I leave you with Trucking, with it's roaming vision down the musical road.
