paul fenton plays,improvises and composes music to relax and dream by.The use of the viola with analog and digital sythesizers makes for a very "interior" music that leaves few indifferent.
paul fenton was born in Chicago and grew up and started his musical education in Hobart,Tasmania.For the last 20 or so years he's been a professional violist in Germany,Luxembourg and France.
I'm a professional musician,principal viola of "L'orchestre symphonique et lyrique de Nancy" and violist with the Stanislas Ensemble in France.http://www.ensemble-stanislas.com
Most of the music presented here is not intended as concert music.
A great number of composers and musicians well and unknown aswell as huge influences from the natural and manmade environment.
viola by Arthur Richardson 1938,Alesis Andromeda,Korg Trinity,Roland JX-8P,Yamaha Motif ES8,01X,i88x and a home built PC with Orion,REAPER and an ever growing collection of soft synths and FX.
It seems to me that anything which can heighten consciousness,and contact with our inner being,intuition,passion and simple joy is of utmost value and ever more so as time passes in this era of great changes.My hope is that my music can at least go in that direction and be enjoyed by those who care to listen.
