Kalam El Nes Generique Piano Cover

In the light of the latest happenings (the bombing of Ashrafieh), we heard this theme time and over again. It has always been a sign of turbulence in the country whenever we didn’t hear it on a Thursday night on LBC as usual.

I decided to use a strings sound for this one, to make it sound more like the original.

It’s also worth noting that this awesome piece is composed and arranged by Hadi Charara.

Enjoy.

Concerning Hobbits by Howard Shore from Fellowship of The Ring

I played and recorded as a special request by robairlb@gmail.com

“Concerning Hobbits”  from the soundtrack of “The Fellowship Of The Ring”

The use of Irish tin whistle, and fiddle in the original recording for the main melody gives the track a Celtic feel.

The tin whistle is somewhat similar to the Nay in our culture.

You may notice the extensive use of ghost notes while I play the melody; as an attempt to imitate the dynamics created by the instruments used in the original recording.
I decided to end in the main theme of LOTR. It just felt right.

TV Appearance “Duo El Gharam”

I’ve been on the TV set for a new series, “Duo El Gharam”, that will be showing during Ramadan on LBC.

My Role was a member of the orchestra, on the piano. The set had some of the most popular soap-opera stars in Lebanon.

It has been a great experience, and I’ve had some nice exposure.

My dear friend Roger, owner of Music-A was the one to offer me the job, many thanks to him.
