During the pandemic from June - December of 2020, I created a music series called WHIMS - 'Weekly Home Isolated Music Series.' I added a new music/video each week which I created in Final Cut Pro software. It was recorded one person/track at a time on different dates and locations. It was a variety of styles: Jazz, Classical, Brazilian, Tango, originals, waltz and even a polka. I often recorded with friends in remote locations, but sometimes it was just me. I hope this helped some through the troubled times with the covid-19 virus. Just click on the link(s) below. Going forward, I will create a series of original compositions/arrangements.
