Fusion of pop, opera, and classical orchestra music.

I was in Krakow, Poland a few weeks ago on a short business visit. The beautiful city and the friendly people made a good impression on me and want me to go back. Here is my musical tribute.

The melody itself came to me in a dream. I woke up a morning and had the melody in my head and I immediately grabbed my iPad and keyed it in as a simple piano track. I have no clue if I have heard part of the melody line somewhere else.

A really beautiful composition. I agree with other commentors, that there is a real nice "movie theme" quality to it. A slightly dramatic and yet melancoly feel.

Well done my friend!!!

WOW! I love this Kenneth. The first thing/person that comes to mind is Klaus Nomi. Love the opera vox in this, wonderful rich fusion here. Gorgeous classical/Spanish guitar picking, delicious harmonies & melodies. Hauntingly beautiful. Supreme work.

Thanks for sharing with us. Masterful original composition, vision, performance & production.

I agree with some of the other comments. Kenneth you certainly have greatness in your mind/fingers.. The keys sound/opera voice all work wonders. Sort of feel a western vibe feel at times.. A mix of sounds/styles done in your own light. Interesting notes above. Trips can do wonders for artists... I like the flutes to and the backing that goes with that.. Well done

this is excellent, Kenneth. Very evocative and cinematic. I agree with a comment above, the use of the single female voice is very Morricone-esque. The remainder of the arrangement evolves into something that is both modern and much like Eastern European folk melodies.

Oh, this gave me chills! That beautiful and eerie operatic voice, singing its sad melody over the strong bassline. It definitely puts me in mind of eastern Europe, so job done there, Kenneth, and I love that you had inspiration also from your dream! I wish I could remember tunes I hear in my dream. I rarely do. I love the full arrangement that then comes in - so achingly sad. I think this is one of your prettiest melodies.
