Anteros the Song

From Wikipedia: In Greek mythology, Anteros (Greek: Ἀντέρως, Antérōs) was the god of requited love, literally “love returned” or “counter-love” and also the punisher of those who scorn love and the advances of others, or the avenger of unrequited love. Anteros was the son of Ares and Aphrodite in Greek mythology, given to his brother Eros, who was lonely, as a playmate, the rationale being that…

New (Old) Song: “Wait for Me”

Another remake of an old original.  If I had a choice I’d prefer to compose, make the music and let someone else lyrically and vocally tell the story.  Preferably someone famous and we’d reap the fortunes of putting angst into a consumable musical form. Origins You’ll get the point.  I wrote this at the beach.…

Cello 2: “Seeds”

So I broke a string on the cello a few weeks ago.  Trying to tune that low C up to a D.  Oops.  The peg kept slipping and I couldn’t get it to stay put for the life of me.  I twisted too hard out of frustration and there it went.  Did the same thing…
