Recorded as a 70 minute single peice of music on a Steinway B, Blue Dream goes from quiet contemplative piano to full orchestral, to world sounds, rhythms, jazz influcneces and back again to the perfect "Bach' moment - all in a breath. (see the youtube clip of the recording of Blue Dream on this page).
You can listen to ICE - Piano Slightly Chilled (piano/chill/dance) on the Little Hartley Music myspace page (top friends below) - it is a sensual mix of piano and rhythm, with some vocal tracks. ICE covers chill, jazz, world and rock - with a tast of the unusual thrown into the mix.
Classically trained as a pianist, Fiona's music is thematic and melodic. With a keen eye on film she has always been interested in creating music that evokes images and emotions and tells a story. "The idea of synchronicity has always intrigued me, colours, ideas and emotions all have corresponding sounds". Also a painter, Fiona incorporates original manuscripts of her music on the canvas to create bold colourful mixed media abstracts so you can hear and see her music.
