Morning Sunrise – Art Music (New Video & Loop Soundscape)

Morning Sunrise

I’m delighted to share a new video and piece of art music. I have been working on creating soundscapes of music that capture different qualities of existence and experience, this piece titled ‘Morning Sunrise’ has been composed with the intention of capturing and emulating a natural world experience of the sun coming up in the morning. Composed during Springtime at home in the Highlands of Scotland, where after a particularly cold Winter (at least for me!), the Springtime arrived with much relief…

The piece is performed as a live-loop arrangement of solo acoustic guitar, were layers of sound are first built up to form the soundscape foundation, before an improvised melody takes the listener and performer on a journey through a Morning Sunrise…

Filmed and recorded in Perth, Scotland at Ice Breaker Studios (previously Clearwater Studios) by David MacAart and Sean Mulholland of Stone Cold Media and Vindicam Sound, during August 2018. I would like to thank David and Sean for their professionalism, hard work, and commitment to music, it was a pleasure working with them.

Stay tuned, I am looking forward to recording a new E.P. in the near future which will host ‘Morning Sunrise’ in the tracklisting.

I hope you like this new music. Thank you for all your support folks, it means the world to me!

Video Interview – Jan 2018

Had a really nice time at North Highland College in Alness/Scotland (Highlands) last month being interviewed and recorded by two music students for a Monthly Podcast.

One of the music students ‘Ryan Raymond’ captured our interview on camera and has created the the video interview below.

In it we talk about my musical influences, background, guitar playing, song meanings, use of equipment and all round musical happenings in the land of Mr Noble (that’s me!).

As well as this we capture two separate live performances of two of my newest songs, both of which use live looping arrangements throughout the compositions. The first one is my song ‘Home‘, which is a devotional song about partnership and finding, building and nurturing a sense of Home with your significant other. The second song ‘Awakening‘ is a guitar instrumental that utilises the building of live arrangements and improvisation.

I really enjoyed my time at the College and had a lot of fun recording and being interviewed by the students. They held such an open friendly and professional space (Cheers guys!).

January Podcast with North Highland College UHI (Recording + Interview)

Happy to share I visited North Highland College in Alness/Scotland earlier this month to record a couple of songs and take part in an interview for a January podcast that some of the music students were creating for their coursework.

I had one tutor and two students working with me for the podcast. It was a really nice experience, very relaxed and professional. We all worked hard and managed to record two songs in the studio and carry out an interview all in the space of 4 hours. I was very happy with the working environment and made to feel really at ease.

Above are pictures from my time in the studio.

I brought in my loop pedal (Boss RC-1) and recorded one song ‘Home’ and one instrumental ‘Awakening’. We captured both of these as live recordings and overdubbed just one part, a shaker as extra percussion on my song ‘Home’. It was really interesting to hear how a live-set using my live-looping arrangements was going to turn out in the studio as I’d never done this before and alongside this I’ve never recorded ‘Home’ before so all in all some new experiences for me.

Alongside this we recorded an interview for the podcast, audio student ‘Ryan Raymond’ interviewed me asking questions about my songs, equipment, influences, and all round questions on what I’m up to as a musician/singer-songwriter. It was a great experience and I enjoyed sharing it all, this was Ryan’s first ever interview and I reckon he did really well!

New Video – Uprising (Live Looping Arrangement)

I’ve been enjoying creating Live Looping arrangements for my songs. Here is a clip of a Live Looped Arrangement for my song ‘Uprising(Release Details T.B.A.)

Lyrics
And there will come a time
Where all of mankind
Will live as one
With one heart and mind
And one great soul
This is our goal

Uprising, Uprising, Uprising
Rising up, Rising up, Rising up, We’re rising up

This is a Tribal song about the Uprising of Humanity, inspired from the culture and history of Scotlands Uprising to Independence in the 13th and 14th Centuries.

Music and Lyrics.
