Butterfly Rapture Review from Ricky Kej

By | Reviews

Butterfly Rapture cover 200Very grateful to have received a generous 5-star review of Butterfly Rapture on Amazon from Grammy® winning composer Ricky Kej!

“What a beauty! The expressive piano speaks a language of utter serenity and tranquility and makes any day a special one! From the sparkling melody that Brian plays out so beautifully on the piano on “Butterfly Rapture” to the soaring “Room for Sky”….the stark beauty of “Winter Aura”, the ethereal melody of “Playing My Heart”….the seriously lovely “Hills in Bloom”…each track imparts a certain imagery that imprints it on one’s mind. Now I just close my eyes and visualize these tracks :-). Produced brilliantly, this music is as incandescent and colorful as a Butterfly’s wings :-) :-) :-)”

Perhaps the most challenging part of album production for me is naming the pieces! Initially, I identify my pieces by the date of conception (for example, 20140316). Gradually, over weeks and months, I collect titles that evoke the mood of the piece. Then I check iTunes to see if those titles already exist. If so, I eliminate or modify those titles. I’m proud to say, all but one of these titles is unique on iTunes – at least, as of today! The final song list becomes a cohesive set of images that suggests a story and exists as a condensed form of poetry. It’s all part of the artistic process.
