Fresh on the heels of last year's release, "Alice In Wonderland Suite", and composing the soundtracks for 7 films including Mindscape Picture's "The Parting" and "More Than Money's Worth" and Silent Ghost Cinema 's "Spell To Capture A Muse" Mr. DÃ©sar decided to continue with his attempt to bring back the spirit of classical music. "What always depresses me is when I attend classical concerts the majority of the audience is over the age of 40. I have always been curious why there never is an equally younger crowd in attendance. Then I realized that a lot of classical music might not be as applicable today. Very few people have the patience to sit through a 40 minute symphony. So I decided to create pieces that were 5 minutes or less on the average. Bite-sized pieces to allow someone to focus their attention on the music but not too long that it will make them lose interest" he says.
This coming Spring (2005), Mr. Desar will be performing solo in concert in Boston, New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Washington DC, Los Angeles, and Toronto. A music video for one of the tracks on the album, "Carmilla" will start production in February 2005.
