Simon Reich

Victoria, Australia

Simon Reich has been playing piano since he was 6 years old. At lessons, he quickly realised that he was much more attracted to composing his own tunes than reading notes from a page. Because music was such a part of his life, Simon composed new tunes on a daily basis, but these were often forgotten or discarded after a few days. That all changed with the advent of home recording & now this music can be captured & presented to you. The tunes he records are almost all composed as improvised piano beginnings. They are then fleshed out later with orchestration of various instruments. Having so many sounds via synthesizers, has made backing up these wonderful piano tunes a task Simon has really enjoyed & it certainly adds emotion to the final product. This isn’t to say they aren’t beautiful tunes to begin with, but there is something about an orchestra that really tugs on the heart strings & draws out an emotional response.
I’m sure Simon Reich’s music will bring you hours of inspirational listening & is sure to soothe your soul in the process. Enjoy!
