- (David Alan Webb)
- Format: CD
In 2004 David Alan Webb published his first CD of original music, 'Migration.' The neo-classical or soundscape type music is soothing and restful, good for waking up, going to sleep, or just relaxing ambiance. It's synthesized instrumentation ranges from a simple quartet of flute, French horn, violin, and cello to full orchestration with choir and pipe organ. David grew up with a piano and has been involved in music all his life. He is known by his friends for his relaxing keyboard improvisations. He has an odd (literally) sense of rhythm: Two of the pieces--'Grieving' and 'Lullaby Roost'-are entirely in seven, and many numbers have sections in five and seven. 'I am continually surprised at my own improvisations, feeling more like a spectator than a composer. When I try to write down a melody, I am often surprised to find that it's in an odd meter. My seventh-grade teacher once observed that I 'march to the beat of a different drummer.' She didn't know how right she was.'
