Composer’s Corner Vol.1 – Stathis Vergis
We are really excited about bringing you a cool, new feature on the MTSTP Blog.
In addition to our usual MTSTP Blog Songs, Aton’s Taking The Music To The People Photo Blog, and our other content, we will now begin a special segment entitled “Composer’s Corner,” where we will feature the beautiful, original instrumental compositions primarily of MTSTP producers Direction and Stathis Vergis, but also some of our other talented music friends.
The Inaugural composition is from Stathis entitled “October 22nd”. Here is what Stathis had to say about the track.
“After spending the summer in New York City, I returned to my hometown in Greece.
Deep inside of me I knew that I was going to produce music.
All the things that I saw and experienced were very inspiring to me.
During my time in New York, I met and lived with several practitioners of Falun Dafa and together we worked to help expose the brutal persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners that is still happening in China.
The persecution in China is directed by the government and viciously attacks people who try to follow the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance.
While in New York, I frequently listened to authentic, traditional Chinese music recordings from the Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra concert on my mp3 player – it was like a gift, a tremendous magical experience.
I also had acquired a silver flute and a violin during my visit in the US.
When I returned to Greece, I continued practicing my music skills discovering and understanding music structures, rhythmic and harmonic ways and more.
A lot of trips in nature and walks by the sea or in the woods!
And then my wish finally arose: to share with all of you these feelings I had deep inside and externalize my goodness for the people and life.
It was a process with ups and downs.
I started arranging this song on the 22nd of October 2015 (that’s the reason for the title!) and finished it on the 3rd of February 2016!
I worked on Ableton 9 on my PC!
If in this world someone can be influenced from bad and good things, I would prefer to share something positive.
Enjoy the track!
See you soon with more music!”
