Greetings once again, Mr. Budos. Saluting you from Zacatecas city, México, i would like to tell you that four years after listening to "The Passing Of A Black Star" i realize i wouldn't have become a classical guitarist if i had not heard this piece. It inspired me in so many different ways, and the timbre of the guitar is even "theatrical" to my ears, so i thank you deeply and hugely, the inspiration you gave me and that started my career as a classical guitarist. (4 years since i started, what a coincidence, hehe)
Greetings, take care

Hi Javier,

What a nice message to receive! Thank you.

I am so glad to hear that you are playing classical guitar and that my music inspired you to pick up the instrument. ' That is wonderful!

Good luck with everything. And let me know if you would like a copy of the score as a reminder of your starting classical guitar.


All the very best.

Marián

Thanks on the reply! And thanks, infinite thanks and blessings for this inspiration. I would indeed like a copy of the score, and if it's possible, maybe play it with a quartet here sometime.

My studio is hot as all hell in this wave... Looking forward to winter for sure.

I've been living off of frozen popsicles lately trying to stay comfortable!

Thankfully fall is only a few months away for us. Don't imagine the summers are going to get any easier though.

Might have to dig into the side of a mountain just to stay cool pretty soon!!! lolol

Hope all is well. Great work again sir.

I know, the heat is getting to my brain too. I had to remove some of my musical equipment into a cooler part of the house for the same reason. We haven't stopped having days with mid to top 30s for a few days now. It's so hard to create anything when the brain is half inflamed. :-)

Thanks for the compliment again. Didi you listen to all three movements or just one? Music from this piece has been used in a feature movie and some video productions too.

Keep yourself cool, man!

Marion,

Some people write cues. Some people write songs. Some people... Tell stories.

You?

You create entire universes with your music. You tell grand tales that shift with the wind and embody craftsmanship that many will study for decades to find.

Yes... Marion. I listened... And I love what your imagination has cooked up.

It is simply stellar sir.

I bet it would better if I spelled your name right sir...

But regardless of my poor eyesight and attention to verbal detail?

I know good music. If you're not still composing its seriously a loss for us all.

Not a problem, I am used to it. :-)

I am still composing for sure. I just finished a few days ago a piece called A New York Minute for fabulous cellist and guitarist in NY Laura Metcalf and Rupert Boyd.

Can we as composers live any other way? Runners get twitches if they don't run for a couple of days. I am the same. It is a part of me probably the same way as it is with you. I can see on your prolific output, it is your way of life too.

BTW, I have always admired your compositions and your production value. Always top notch in every aspect of it.

There are not too many people who can do what you do. And see the world through music the way you do. I hope you will help to change the musical landscape especially in movies. There is a need for a change the way I feel it and I think you are the man! Your music is unique and exciting!

One needs tools for such things... I'll earn them though.

Until then? I'm nobody. Just a guy who really loves music. Makes the most of the limited gear he has. There are titans out there that could do what I do blindfolded.

Nah... I'll be grateful to be a part of the show at all.

I know what's out there. (Smiles.) But that's ok... I don't need to be the best at anything. Love of the music itself is enough for me.

Thank you though. In every way possible today:)

I know the world is very competitive and there is lots of talent around. But a unique and strong voice always rises to the top - like the cream in the old saying. So don't stop doing what you do.

I absolutely agree, it is the process of writing music that gives one perhaps more kick than what happens to the music once it is finished. That's more or less admin. :-)

Like you, I am very contented that I have the faculties to create and that I have people who want me to write for them.

I hope you make it to the 'very top' of the game, though. You have what it takes.

It is a really nice album and I listened to it this morning while enjoying the nice spring weather. I also watched the two videos of you two playing.

It's nice to catch up on your music. Which orchestra(s) are you playing in now?

Great viola playing!!!!

I hope everything is going well for you.

BTW, I really enjoyed Frankfurt everyone I was there with my German friends. I haven't visited for a while now. Last time I went to see friends in Haidelberg, guitarists Helmut Oestereich and Christian Wernicke.

All the best!

"The Passing of a Black Star" - loved it Marian. Well developed. Favorite parts are when it enters the more peaceful/ reflective parts. Great performance! Glad you survived the electrocution.

So nice to hear from you, after a while, John. Thanks for the positive comments. Yes, I have my favourite parts towards the end of the piece too. I am glad you like it.

I am all well now - thanks! I hope you are doing well too.

Jeff,

'Slow down' is a great track. A member review of the song, "a bit like David Bowie". Your vocals surely remind me of him. The vocal vibratos are fantastic and your voice colour is so nice to listen to. I love the arrangement as well. The song has such a cool feel too.

Excellent song!!!!

Ah, on this recording it is actually not me playing - it is the New Zealand Guitar Quartet. But I have a guitar quartet too (Nautilus Chamber) and we play this piece too. I play guitar two in it. There are a few spots where we need to work pretty hard for our money.
