Newly released, NEVER ENDING STORY, is a compilation of work I have done over the last 5 years. There are pieces with Piano from a Theatre Production in Montreal, a Sufi Poem that was recorded live with voice, I play classical guitar and also have created various percussive tracks. The feeling of this CD is overall more popular, but still keeping the cello and my melodic style in clear focus. As in my Sentient Cello CD, there are several “All Cello” pieces also included.
Running time: 68 minutes
> Piano and Fender Rhodes were created and performed by Réal Léveillé.
> Percussion on Asia by Alain Corey.

> Contemplate Your Origins is an extract from a much larger text of the Persian poet Mahmud Shabistari’s “Golshan-I Raz” (The Garden of Secrets). This is a genre of mystical-musical-verse written in 14th century Afghanistan. Translated by Tim Smith and performed in a live improv. session at CreaSon Studio in Montréal, April, 1997 by Tim Smith and Erich Kory. The Recording Engineer for this track was Jean-Guy Montpetit.
