Flying (Disky release)

After the success of 'Cloud Sculpting' Filmtrax managed to secure a commission for me to produce an album for the 'New Horizons' series in the U.S.A. They requested the use of the title 'Flying' which is why I have two albums of that name!

Very much in the same musical style as my early New World Music releases (recorders, piano, synthesisers etc.) tracks 1, 3, 4 and 6 became firm favourites from my live set.

Each track creates a unique atmosphere with evocative melodies and a wide palette of instrumentation.
