'Pathetique' was forwarded to 'Munchkin Studios,' 'DSM,' 'Drama King Music,' 'SmartSound Software, Inc.,' 'Domino Musik,' 'Musync,' 'Music4Picture' and to MTV by Taxi.  The Music Supervisor for a popular reality show on the biggest Music Television Network in the world asked for “Great Teen Network Drama-esque Instrumental Score.”

Description: Written in 1978-79, this classical work is actually two ideas conceived in related keys. Classical aficionados will likely recognize that Beethoven and Debussy influenced this composition. It is perhaps ideally suited for ballet or ice dancing and if you are not wide awake, could gently pull you to sleep...

Story Behind the Music: This was originally recorded to an old 'reel to reel' and had to be re-created digitally about ten years later...

"Great work Leland- -I like the spaciness and moody quality.  Nice tension created by the breaks in the piano playing with the strings continuing under.  You have all the elements here...thanks for the great work and hope to hear more in the future."

---Taxi, March 9, 2007

"I think this is my favorite of your pieces...sounds like you're developing a catalog all by yourself..."

---Taxi, March 28, 2007

"...classical flavor is nice on this one. A little 'dark', as well...nice sounds...nice mood and groove...good musicianship; good programming etc, etc..."

"This piece could work in a dreamier context with certain types of footage...Lots of enjoyable stuff..."

"This is lovely. It reminds me of Morricone and that's very high praise.  Well recorded...The writing and arranging here are superb overall. My compliments!  What I'm hearing here is a bit of an agitated feel due to the constant swelling and emotional wringing that is happening due to the fluctuations in time...very beautiful..."

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.

Nick Austin, Chairman of LandscapeHD says "Art Channel is a really good television concept that will also be very good for Landscape. 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"

In addition, Art Channel is also available by the Neuf network in France.  From Wednesday 6th February 2008, Art Channel will also be available 24 hours a day on this network - channel 104.  French speaking viewers
