Through a Rainbow

'Through a Rainbow'

Description: As a rainbow appears and arrests our vision, so too does the production of this composition.  Aurally as delightful as a rainbow is visual, 'Through a Rainbow' engages the listener to imagine its beauty as though one was witnessing its splendor for its naturally brief, yet spectacular duration. Choir, cello, viola, violin and French horn sections adorn this evocatively impressionistic arrangement, which also includes 'water droplets,' bursts of 'weather,' drums, fretless bass and harp...

Story Behind the Music: Written late in the original 'Roland architecture' period that for me concluded around 1991, it was 'lost' probably as the result of a corrupted floppy and had to be re-recorded early in 2002.  Fortunately, I had a cassette version of the track and was able to refer to it for every detail that I could not recall.  Returning from Studio 'A' one Saturday in early Spring 2003 I had the good fortune of actually going through a rainbow that straddled California's 210 freeway as I drove home in late afternoon.  It was a remarkably beautiful event as they always are, but for me the event became the obvious title of this very bucolic composition.

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.

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 Review

"Through a Rainbow is really pretty and haunting by the way and wanted to let you know that I enjoyed it very much.  Very pretty choral sound and melody.  This has good sectional contrast, dynamic shifts...your work is very professional and has a lot of impact emotionally.  Best of luck to you and hope to hear more in the future!"

---Taxi, May 3, 2006

"I like the Enya-ish direction with the vocals and well scored strings...good use of layering...well crafted arrangements and solid musicianship...I'm especially impressed by [Through a Rainbow]..."

---Taxi, August 22, 2006

"I found lots to enjoy...you do employ strings (and later, voices) well..."

---Taxi, April 9, 2007

"...a mellow, almost 'lullaby' vibe...nice sounds...nice mood and groove...good musicianship; good programming etc, etc..."

---Taxi, April 13, 2007

"An appealing piece of music in the new age genre...over all sound leans more towards "conventional" (in the good sense of the word) new age music..."

---Taxi, May 23, 2008

"This music is very emotionally charged and has a great spirit --sounds good..."

---Taxi, September 30, 2008

10/10stars: Such
Wonderful beauty from this.  Such a peaceful vibe, excellent use of the instruments.  1:05 brings in the more drama type feeling.  1:42 adds to the already strong emotion.  Such excellent creativity on this.  Wonderful work......Respect, Joseph
