Though I don’t dance (publicly!), I am thrilled to no end when others dance to my music.

I am pleased to announce that Sergio Puccini, an Argentine guitar virtuoso, will record “Parting” for inclusion in his upcoming album release. I am thrilled that my composition will be featured alongside the music of Paul McCartney, David Kahne, and others. You may recall that I originally composed “Parting” for Baroque Lutenist Will Tocaben (http://tinyurl.com/p8mdyqr). I then arranged it for Sergio’s classical guitar. I can’t wait to hear his interpretation. http://www.sergiopuccini.net/

Lately I have been thinking about the healing potential of music. I don’t want to be in the business of selling snake oil, smoke, and mirrors, but would want to be somehow involved in creating a space for bringing healing and renewal to people. I don’t know how, when, where, or what yet, but the idea has been germinating in me for several months. http://tinyurl.com/lrt96hd

Here are nuts and bolts of TrancePhonica during the mastering session with Julian Dreyer at the Echo Mountain Recording Studio in Asheille. Music composition, sequencing, mixing, and editing are very visual processes to me. I enjoy playing with graphs and curves, obsessively tweaking every detail until everything seems effortless. As the saying goes, it takes a lot of effort to seem effortless.

A mastering session for TrancePhonica with Julian Dreyer at Echo Mountain Recording Studio in Asheville. His first suggestion for the mix was to bring out more kick, and more kick we shall have! The single is coming out this Thursday, September 18. http://www.dosiamckay.com/trancephonica.shtml

Premiere of Sweet Baby, my new choral piece, performed by the members of C4 under the direction of Fahad Siadat. New York, Composer’s Voice, June 29, 2014, Jan Hus Presbyterian Church.
http://www.dosiamckay.com/music/sweetbaby.shtml
Sweet Baby is a fun and lively composition. A part tongue-twister, a part an avalanche of endearments, or perhaps an obsession with sugar delicacies. With phrases like “cotton candy, bubble gum, truffle nougat, sour ball, snapper cracker sugarplum, almond cookie, lemon drop”, the music is sure to amuse and entertain.

"The music is ecstatic and trance-inducing, strongly influencing emotions of the listener, even one who is not musically educated". - from the recent review of Glossolalia by Ewa Palińska in the Gdańsk magazine Trojmiasto.pl. 
Yes! It has been my goal to speak through my music to listeners of all walks of life. Bring your ears and imagination!
