Project Teaser - August 2019

Hello everyone! It’s the 11th of the month, so it’s time for a monthly project teaser.

This month… work continues in constructing a grand package of great new music for you - all flowing from my beloved piano to my computer’s orchestra and then to your ears.

Just how big am I planning? Hmmm… about as long as my last three albums combined sounds like a good length! Bring on 2020, it’s going to be BIG!

Project Teaser - July 2019

Hello everyone! It’s the 11th of the month, so it’s time for a monthly project teaser.

This month… grand plans are in motion, but I wanted to focus on my return from Europe: I have been making up for all the missed piano time and a backlog of new ideas have flowed out onto the keys. Here’s a snippet of one piece, which is now getting the orchestration love it deserves. I promise there are plentiful more ideas being developed in tandem and I wish I could share them all!

When will you hear the final piece? Sit tight. D-Day is a long time away.

Journey: Remastered Released!

New Music!

Five years after the release of his debut album Journey New Zealand composer Camiel van Schoonhoven has released an revised version.

To celebrate the occasion, Camiel decided to revisit the original album, updating the instrument sounds and tweaking a few passages. Most significantly, Camiel added a eight, bonus, track to the end, titled Epilogue. He explains that the piece is intended to add a note finality to the musical adventure, noting that the original music took listeners out on a journey, but never brought them back.

Epilogue is an upbeat and heroic piece, which Camiel says is a testament to the achievements of not only the story told within the music, but the story told within his own career.

Indeed, it is a fitting piece to celebrate five years of publishing music and alongside it Camiel released a video detailing his own journey to date, including inspirations, interesting facts and times of adversity.

You can watch the video below and the full revised album is available on Camiel’s SoundCloud here.
