“When I started working on my album Piano Opus in the summer of 2008, I didn’t have the faintest idea what I wanted to compose.  This being my thirteenth album, I found it challenging to write something fresh.  I listened to many other composers in an effort to spark inspiration.  I was surprised by how many albums lose their appeal after the first few songs.  So I set out to create a solo piano album that can keep the listener’s interest all the way through.”

“I found that  one of the main reasons so many other composers’ songs sounded similar was that they were written in the same time signatures.  Most music is written in 4/4 or 3/4 time.  So I set out to write a song in complex time.  I chose 5/4 for my first attempt.  I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to play in 5/4, let alone compose in it.  I carried on my experiment for a couple of months until I composed the song titled Wind.”

“After the exhausting work of composing in 5/4, I tried to go back to composing in common time (4/4 or 3/4), but I now felt more comfortable writing in complex time.  So I continued my complex time adventure and wrote an additional song in 5/4, then three in 7/8 and one in 11/8.  I was having so much fun that I often wondered if others would think that I was off my rocker.  I hope you think I’m still rocking. ;)” ~ Brian Crain (From cd insert)

Unfortunately, the Brian Crain links tend to go dead rather quickly. Right now I’m working on the portal solution, and so reuploading them will have to wait a bit. I’m sorry for that, but as it stands right now, there is only so much time available, and I need to make the best use of it.
