Piano & Orchestra is a collection of compositions where many tracks feature acoustic or electric piano combined with an orchestral accompaniment.
Included within this collection are some compositions that although sounding orchestral, do not in fact use any conventional orchestra sounds at all.
Simple melodies are often used in inventive ways to create beautiful music that is both refined and relaxing. Created using headphones, providing a very 'personal' experience for the listener, also using headphones.
The music is instrumental and intended to invoke warm, comforting feelings. It never shocks but gently soothes. The emotional feelings created within the listener by these musical compositions is as far removed from urban chaos as you could possibly get, it is intended to take you out of yourself for a while, away from your office and your job, away from the pressures of everyday life. To be gently relaxing, engendering feelings of well being encouraging the listener to close their eyes, go with the flow and float away from the troubles of the world on a magic carpet of imagination. These musical journeys often involve a myriad of complimentary musical phrases and effects that come together to totally surround the listener with a world of magical fantasy.
Created by Clive at his home in exotic Bali, the influence of South East Asia and the relaxing beauty of his home island are apparent in many of these musical creations adding a further dimension to his western upbringing and 30 year musical journey.
