to recollect and tell of past experiences or events...
Growing up... we all have some kind of special memories that we revisit on occasion just like an old familiar friend. Memories that are like “little treasures” and NOBODY can ever take away from us. Specific moments in time that can even string back to our early childhood and follow us on up to the present.
I personally call them “landmarks.” They can be anything that triggers the five (or six) senses. A smell, a sunset, someones laugh, a remark you made. For me personally, it’s a song. You know that song...the one you remember exactly where you were, who you were with, the first time you heard it...and fell in love with it.
This new project is only a few of special those songs. If you like it... there will be more...
About the artist:
Grew up in Hollywood, son of an actress, lived four blocks from Universal Studios and had a love for film music even then. Been playing piano since three and a half. I studied classical music for nine years with retired Dean of the Music Department of the University Of Utah, Thomas Giles (my next door neighbor). One year with Max Willerson (student of a student of Franz List) that almost killed me! Numerous rock bands (some almost famous!) on the Sunset Strip followed that.
I''ve been writing music all my life but recording solo projects since 1985. I''m also known as Douglas Trowbridge and Under The Radar. I''ve been fortunate enough to have had some of my work used by Daimler Mercedes-Benz in a European commercial, CBS 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano for a segment on Buddhist monks, PBS''s Spanish version of "Sesame Street" continues to this day to use a song from my first album. I have song in the HBO film "Iron Jawed Angels" which played at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. Some music featured in NBC Dateline, Secrets behind ''The Da Vinci Code'' segment. The project I''m most proud of is a independent documentary film I scored on the life of Blade Runner/Tron artist, Syd Mead. Was asked to be the solo performer for the Sundance Film Festival 2008 Opening Night Gala In Salt Lake City.
