a sweet and whimsical composition, one of the first pieces i wrote for solo acoustic guitar, more than two decades ago. though a few passages have been upgraded over the years, most of it has been with me through the various stages of my journey. hope you enjoy the sunny vibes ! ❤ thank you for your support ! ❤ § you're invited to subscribe to the ★ Monthly Release Club ★ to instantly get every composition i release, along with Club Exclusives and bonus materials such as demos, videos, lyrics and other works in progress : https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/monthly-release-club among other privileges, Club Members have access to the contents of the « Upcoming Releases » and « Creative Process » series at least one month before the general public. § ★ connect via social networks ★ https://www.facebook.com/christopher.andrew.stewart https://www.facebook.com/poligraf https://twitter.com/poligraf https://instagram.com/p0l16r4f/ https://soundcloud.com/poligraf http://stewart-explorations.net §

know this melancholy that's leaving you forlorn and that lonesome worry stinging your peace like thorn have no reality aside from when you mourn and for all their glory their fruits will be Stillborn § « Stillborn » is the Monthly Release for February 2020. the piece is the second chapter of a composition called « Written In The Stars » which loosely tells the story of a person mourning the unexpected and untimely ending of an undertaking that was very dear to them. in the storyline, the function of the piece is to suggest the dramatic event that led to the grieving process, the unsuccessful endeavour which is symbolized by a stillborn child. the chapter sets the scene as the protagonist, having left the city at the end of day, muses about the deceased infant while getting ready for a lonely night of mourning in nature. the music strides forward as the protagonist transitions from a city dweller frame of mind to an introspective state, all the while advancing deeper into the wilderness. as the piece concludes, memories give way to reflection as the griever becomes enthralled by the surroundings and the starry skies. at its origin, back in July 2017, the composition was intended as an experimental research and development exercise, with the aim of reaching new creative spaces. the composition blends stylistic elements borrowed from many genres ranging from urban to progressive. the music pulses to the beat of electronic and acoustic drum sounds, and is augmented by excerpts of poetry readings. this is a video for the single version of the piece. hopefully, when the recording of the whole of « Written In The Stars » is complete, and as means and resources allow, a proper conceptual video, or more likely a short film, will be released. meanwhile, i hope you enjoy the new music ! ❤ thank you for your support ! ❤ § ★ attributions ★ a list of the media files used in the making of this video is available here : https://poligraf.tumblr.com/post/610963848609120256/stillborn-attributions § ★ download link ★ https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/track/stillborn § you're invited to subscribe to the ★ Monthly Release Club ★ to instantly get every composition i release, along with Club Exclusives and bonus materials such as demos, videos, lyrics and other works in progress : https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/monthly-release-club among other privileges, Club Members have access to the contents of the « Upcoming Releases » and « Creative Process » series at least one month before the general public. § ★ connect via social networks ★ https://www.facebook.com/christopher.andrew.stewart https://www.facebook.com/poligraf https://twitter.com/poligraf https://instagram.com/p0l16r4f/ https://soundcloud.com/poligraf http://stewart-explorations.net § #stillborn #music #newmusic #bandcamp #funk #urban #electronicdrums #progressive #alternative #eclectic #poetry #crushed #experimental

unforeseen collapsing personal catastrophe the dust settling you've done more than enough retreat to the margin not a day for dashes just rest and imagine Rising From The Ashes § « Rising From The Ashes » is the Monthly Release for January 2020. a restless instrumental that evolved from an unusual chord progression i stumbled upon while noodling on the nylon guitar. it evokes the indomitable loving energy that animates all that is alive, and which seemingly never stops surging and thriving onward even when the unthinkable happens and demise appears unavoidable. the artwork was inspired by photographs of signs of life returning after the Australian bushfires. no picks were used during the making of this recording, which is a first for me for this type of composition. after a lifetime believing that it was necessary to use a pick to achieve a certain level of virtuosity on the electric guitar, I had an epiphany over the holidays. while discovering the works of Matteo Mancuso, it became obvious that this limitation was only conceptual and didn’t actually exist. ❤ thank you for your support ! ❤ § ★ download link ★ https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/track/rising-from-the-ashes § you're invited to subscribe to the ★ Monthly Release Club ★ to instantly get every composition i release, along with Club Exclusives and bonus materials such as demos, videos, lyrics and other works in progress : https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/monthly-release-club among other privileges, Club Members have access to the contents of the « Upcoming Releases » and « Creative Process » series at least one month before the general public. § ★ connect via social networks ★ https://www.facebook.com/christopher.andrew.stewart https://www.facebook.com/poligraf https://twitter.com/poligraf https://instagram.com/p0l16r4f/ https://soundcloud.com/poligraf http://stewart-explorations.net § #rock #instrumental #electricguitar #progrock #guitar #fingerstyle #bandcamp #music #progressiverock #clavinet #electricpiano #rhodes #mellotron #forestfires #bushfires #rebirth #signsoflife #proggy #progressivemusic #progressive #eclectic #cakewalk #musicproducer #musiclife #recording #musicmaking #musicmakers #musiccreator

do not fearful become because of that one scaith however the outcome the hands of time will swathe and wash away the dust while in respite you bathe in tomorrow you'll trust and take that Leap Of Faith § this instrumental stems from a simple progression on the nylon guitar that slowly builds and then explores a variety of landscapes. gentle and simple at its beginning, the music becomes more dramatic as the leap gets nearer. once the safety of the solid ground is left behind, it then gains the confidence to be more adventurous, until it reaches the grand moment of vindication wherein faith is justified by the unforeseeable increase in freedom that couldn’t have been gained otherwise. from there on, it experiences the joyous fun once more before returning to its original peaceful state. i have a definite fondness for the piece as it often starts playing in my mind when i'm in doubt about particular courses of action that seem to entail some form of danger... it sings « just take the leap » hope you enjoy it as much as i do ! ❤ thank you for your support ! ❤ § ★ download link ★ https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/track/leap-of-faith § you're invited to subscribe to the ★ Monthly Release Club ★ to instantly get every composition i release, along with Club Exclusives and bonus materials such as demos, videos, lyrics and other works in progress : https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/monthly-release-club among other privileges, Club Members have access to the contents of the « Upcoming Releases » and « Creative Process » series at least one month before the general public. § ★ connect via social networks ★ https://www.facebook.com/christopher.andrew.stewart https://www.facebook.com/poligraf https://twitter.com/poligraf https://instagram.com/p0l16r4f/ https://soundcloud.com/poligraf http://stewart-explorations.net § #rock #electricguitar #faith #guitar #instrumental #nylonguitar #progressiverock #progrock #quebec #vdq
