Ever find something that triggers an entire series of memories?
It happened to me this morning.
November 20th, last year. It was the day I wrote the melody for “Still Believe”. I set up a 4 or 5 part loop…
A throwback to a traditional song that begins by fading in and out like the soundtrack of a distant memory or a dream. It then introduces a hard-hitting beat that swells and pulls you into a passionate fury of anthemic rock with bursts of virtuosic guitar lines. It finally ends like every good dream should, leaving you with sweet resolution, but also a subtle longing in your heart to return.
An excerpt taken from a personal film project that mixes rock guitar, symphonic elements, subtle electronic seasoning, and classical vocals to produce an empowering and inspiring soundtrack to help you push through whatever you're battling.
“If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.”
From soulful solo guitar pieces to Epic soundtrack-infused rock with a world music twist and a dash of electronic seasoning, Ring covers a lot of ground stylistically.
You might hear something like it in a video game, a movie, or a live concert equally ...but the one constant is that he makes it his priority to aim from the heart and to aim for the heart.
