'The Seasons'
--- Music for People Who Love Melody ---
Composed by philip white and performed by the Digital Data Orchestra

NOTE: Music videos are being produced and loaded to YouTube in abundance during July 2012!!

The Alpha & Omega Suite was begun in 2000 and completed nine years later in 2008. Though heavy on lyrics, the compositions were also written to stand on their own as an orchestrated instrumental.

After taking a two year hiatus away from the music, at the end of 2010 I returned to the compositions and started notating and scoring. The new variation on the Suite is referred to as 'the Seasons'. Each season will contain a different 'take' on the individual pieces, for instance Autumn emphasizes strings and orchestra, Winter is heavy on piano, Spring will be more hard/electric, and Summer is not determined yet.

I am randomly scoring the individual pieces separately as I feel inspired. So far the dozen parts I've completed have each taken 3 to 5 weeks of endeavor. The Psalmists Sonata, though number 12 out of the 35 pieces was the first I wrote the sheet music for. It is a piece which when first written back in 2004, was immediately 'stuck in my head' as a heavy string arrangement. These strings are also a part of the first recorded version with lyrics.

Promises Fulfilled was the first song written for the Alpha & Omega Suite... back in 2000. It has always been dear to me and became the second piece notated and scored the first month in 2011.

______________________________

As of September 2012 the following has been completed pertaining to the Alpha & Omega Suite...
a) 35 songs with lyrics written & recorded
b) 35 Winter instrumental songs recorded
c) 35 Autumn instrumental songs recorded
d) 18 Spring instrumental songs recorded
e) 12 music videos
f) 710 art renderings (most are used in the music videos)
g) 800+ write-ups/blog items

Note: The order which the songs appear on Soundcloud are in no way the correct order. When all 35 pieces are scored, I will number and put them back into the way they should progress.

    Sea of Despair - Showers of Grace - Spring

    With the devastation left from Hurricane Sandy, the Sea of Despair music and video both tie-in with a relevancy and message of hope. We can be encouraged and strengthened amongst the despair, hurt, and wreckage that so many of us have been impacted with during this tragic time.

    This lovely composition was given by God's Spirit one early morning when I was immersed in prayer, meditation, Bible study, and an overall quiet time with the Lord.

    I enjoy Rebecca's version with all it's innocent awkwardness and unpolished appeal. But I enjoy your version for a different reason... it emphasizes the strengths and potential of the original song. Thank you for seeing what the song offers (and it is not even close to being the "worst song ever written"), in my opinion it's not even in the top 500 worst songs.
