Peace & Rhythm
Contemporary Instrumental music to enjoy life by. The first CD by Liteblue is Peace & Rhythm, a collection of original music for both the quiet and active places in your life. The music of Liteblue is written, performed and recorded by Andrew Wulf. This CD represents a milestone in my lifelong love of improvisation, as the entire CD was developed as a series of improvised bits of music. The tunes on the CD come in two flavors, one labeled Peace - 5 songs for relaxing to and Rhythm - 5 songs with a bit more movement. Tranquility: A soprano sax over a foundation of harp, vibes and a glass harmonica. This is a very relaxing tune perfect for a moment of calm in a busy day. Serenity: Four hands piano. A quiet tune with a few brighter moments, somewhat in the style of one of my favorite artists, George Winston. Reverie: A piece for guitars, viola, harp, bass and shekere in the unusual time of 11/4. This was created during a time when I was unemployed and looking outside the window a lot. A Wish For Kenneth: A type of modern ricercar for guitar, cello, violin, harp, trumpet, trombone and percussion. This tune was written to honor my Godson, who is challenged by juvenile diabetes. Melancholy Skies: An ever-changing piece for various combinations of guitar, tambura, flute, harp, viola, and voices. Listen with caution, as this piece will pull all thoughts from your head, leaving you with a cleared mind. Dance Of The Palms: This happy little caribbean dance is performed entirely on percussion instruments, namely doumbek, shekere, dunun, blocks, african hammers, marimbas, xylaphone, vibes and steel drums. Cool World: A jazzy piece featuring guitars, flute, bass, doumbek, yamboo, bamboo sticks and agogo. Weather Report: Another jazzy piece in the style of the Weather Channel's local weather music, performed on guitar, cabasa, conga, castenets, bass and electric piano. Quartetto: This unusual piece is performed on 4 guitars and percussion (djembe, shekere and claves). Wellspring: A piece for guitars, harp, bass conga and 2 frame drums. An airy, quick moving tune.
