After You

By Leland Thomas Faegre

'After You'

Description: 'After You' is an imaginative spy themed, sweaty-palmed swashbuckling rocker which is evocatively suggestive of various thematic opportunities for film or television. It was mixed with an orchestra lay-out in mind, with tympani to the left, strings to the front, and brass behind etc. Flamenco guitar, castanets, tamboura, sitar, horns, sizzling electric guitars and a reversed cymbal crash [sounding like a knife being sharpened] characterize this dramatic tension-tinged track.  After You,  I insist...

Story Behind the Music: There is a patch on the Roland D-50 by the name of 'Breathy Chiffer' that was the inspiration for this composition. It came to me during a seminal period in the late 80's, and I knew that when I finished the original digital tracks, that the production would be tedious and experimental. Over 48 tracks later, 'After You' was almost five months in production.

What is a LandscapeHD film?
LandscapeHD films combine the worlds greatest classical and instrumental music with breathtaking HD imagery from around the world
Which comes first the music or the pictures?
LandscapeHD is first and foremost a music television network. We start with the music and then create a production that is sympathetic to it.


Although only available in standard definition, LandscapeHD will be available as part of this programming to promote its music video download store and build a new audience amongst cable companies - many of whom will never before have been able to see Landscape and its format.

Now viewers can see our HD music clips before they buy them in HD or the AppleTV format. It will give people a very good idea of what the LandscapeHD channel will be doing next year and forms part of our co-operative marketing venture to build awareness of the LandscapeHD and Art Channel brands"

Professional Reviews

"Cinematic...Exotic groove...elements, 'guitar,' string ensemble...cellos, pizzicato like motion...and castanets, always a good touch...dramatic chord progression arrangement...another strong track...varied and accomplished in...production, sense of drama as well as performances...Excellent work..."

---Taxi, August 23, 2005

"...another good one."

---Taxi, November 28, 2005

"Nice mood creation and feel...well written and...powerfully delivered.  Your arrangements, while interesting, are much more complex...strong and solidly delivered..."

---Taxi, April 14, 2006

"Great stuff Leland!  Good to hear more of your music.  This is a musically tight cue with some very interesting mood and dynamic shifts...a good mix of orchestral ensemble, real instruments and electronica...best of luck in all your musical endeavors..."

---Taxi, May 3, 2006

"Ominous opening...sounds like trouble on the horizon...orchestration and tempo, from the timpani to the lead guitar give this attitude... good combinations of instruments...Well played...produced..."

---Taxi, March 28, 2007

"...a fine piece...there's no doubt about the quality of the material...Nice work..."

---Taxi, August, 18, 2008

"...nice intro...dramatic strings...solid arranging...nice line writing...dramatic...the segues are creative...the piece has a good dynamic range...the tracks are musical while dramatic.  Your writing skills are in top form with an inventive arranging style.  A key factor in creating the right impact (with the broadcast medium) lies with the arranging design of the music.  I like the way you make good use of good melodies via creative arranging, good job.  The tracks establish solid themes and progress from there with an even treatment enabling the listener to follow the journey with ease.  The writing is so vast that supervisors will view each piece as independent islands full of relative possibilities.  Keep writing and good luck!"

10/10stars: After Me ?  pour quoi ?
2.23.2005 @ 1:37pm
This is fantastic. Smooth and Jazzy with hints of tango tap dancers and highly dramatic overtones of a stalking rapidly intensifying chase. nice mood guitars and catching-your-breath soft synths..
It's Lovely but what's really a 10 anyway?
10/10stars: Has that secret agent touch ...
2.23.2005 @ 12:09am
... but also reminds me some of Yanni at times due the the instrumentation. Very enjoyable piece and exquisite production.

Peer Reviews from SongRamp

leland: this is the best instrumental I've heard all month. really super job DRAMATIC great mix. Funny, you must have posted this SECONDS before I posted "krazy mary", and the song is "after you". Ironic? really enjoyed the listen. CAM
Exquisit and dramatic..definately appropriate for a movie score..I detect a slight mid-east influence. A profound piece of music Deb
Beautiful composition and arrangement. Mike
Wow there is a lot of nice things going on here yet it all works together very well. A sonice delight for the ear. Mike
"Bond, James Bond!" Very well done. bobgraham



"Reminds me of being in a Spielberg movie or Battlestar Gallactica...You may want to pitch your music to film directors...This track goes beyond the usual ground of a keyboard player this has real mood and feel to it driven by a muted trumpet with orchestrated parts that brings in percussion and a sound much bigger than Mozart or Rick Wakeman ..In fact this should be in the next Science Film blockbuster! 11/10 Excellent track This would be great to hear in Australia with a fully fledged orchestra and muso's!"
