for the Asking by Bill Llewellyn
One for the Asking
my first CD, and is a collection of compositions which I had been
together over a period of about 10 years. Once I discovered that I
make these pieces materialize in full ensemble form using MIDI
and a computer, I began work in earnest to arrange, produce, and record
enough tracks for a full album. The work received many positive
from people who heard the album in its initial cassette form.
by One for the Asking's reception, I bolstered my MIDI studio
some better gear and began working on Think Twice,
my second CD.
One for the Asking was as much a growing experience for me as it is a musical experience for the listener. My MIDI setup was relatively basic (though very capable) at the time and my finesse in assembling music with the keyboard/computer combination was (and is) still growing. The compositions are fairly straightforward with cleanly delineated instrumentation. A few of the pieces were also intended to have lyrics -- but since my MIDI studio had no provision for the recording of vocals, I put forward just the music and let it speak with its own voice.
