It is my dream to produce compositions that connect with and echo in the souls of others. My mission is to reach all types of fans by transcending any one preconceived style by blending the freedom of contemporary music with textures of classical instruments. Welcome to the Brian Landrus Orchestra: Generations project on ArtistShare.
This upcoming recording is a culmination of my musical journey since I was 12. I have heard this music in my head since I was a child, but now I finally have the tools to bring it to life. The orchestra of 26 musicians contains some of the most creative and influential artists in the world, including violinist Mark Feldman, bassists Lonnie Plaxico and Jay Anderson, vibraphonist Joe Locke, and drummers Billy Hart and Justin Brown. I am honored to collaborate with these incredible musicians, and I look forward to hearing the band members bring their own wisdom and passion into the project.
I am thrilled to involve you, the participant, in my creative process. As the project progresses, I will be keeping you involved through videos, audio clips, photos, downloads and more. You will have an exclusive look at how this music develops from paper to performance.
