A noteworthy trivia is that the time signature for this piece is 5/4
This time it’s a sound cloud recording.
Yep, the one from the advertisement. The effort put in music for ads back then is probably more than the effort given for ‘regular’ songs nowadays.
Yet another one of my favorite songs by Ziad.
I know it’s not a perfect take with some mistakes but it’s generally a nice one so I thought I’d share it.
Soundtrack from the French movie Amelie by Yann Tiersen.
I added some variations which is a mix between the orchestral and the piano solo versions.
One of my favorite songs. The previous take on the blog was a bit outdated, I decided to take a new one. Enjoy.
The famous 2nd introduction of Mays El Rim play by the Rahbani Brothers.
This was one of the earliest publicized compositions of Ziad. I overheard he was 16 when he composed it. It might have been his first musical contribution to a play by his father and uncle.
This beautiful piece has been performed in many concerts, with many different arrangements. This piano interpretation has been inspired by several of those arrangements.
First off it has been a great experience volunteering for this event, I got to meet wonderful people.
I had the privilege of producing the playback music.
The song was written and composed by Naim Zard, Rasha Hamze, and Sarah Kourkejian.
Main song arrangement by Naim Zard and me.
The main arrangement was played as an outro to the event.
I also decided to create variations of the song, inspired by the speakers’ subjects.
I ended up creating 3 arrangements :
- Robotic/Futuristic (Charles El Aachi)
- Oriental (Suzanne Talhouk)
- Indian/Percussive (Walkabout Drum Circle)
The variations were played in-between the sections.
I noticed some volunteers using this as their ringtone! So I thought it’d be cool to be able to download them.
You can easily download and use them if you want 🙂 A different variation for a different event maybe?
Finally, many thanks to my dear friend and brilliant musician Naim Zard for helping me get this opportunity, and his contribution on the music, and help to make this project happen.
Enjoy, and remember All We Need is an Internet Connection!
Update: I also edited the music to the intro/outro for the TEDxBeirut 2012 videos
