Music by Simon Edward | InfinityBass.com
Music. Firstly, the music I compose is an alternative fusion of ‘Dreampop’ (post-rock) and shoegaze, with elements of jazz and funk. Here are some clips of the tracks from my forthcoming EP. I hope you enjoy them: –

“Shade of Red” is about the ‘Shades of red in Music, Life, Love and Being’: –

“Merry Go Crazy” © ~ Funk Rock
Inspired by the Merry-go-round of life, which can drive us all to distraction: –
“When life becomes complicated ~ find joy in each other and the gift of laughter.”

“Rain” © ~ Dreampop
“Rain” was inspired by the sound of windchimes. I was at a very low point in late 2012. It’s difficult to put into words exactly what happened for me to be feeling the way I felt at this time. It was probably lots of things.
‘Rain’ was my way of doing something creative and positive to help draw a line under those feelings.

“Breaking News” © ~ Dreampop
I wrote the lyrics to “Breaking News” whilst on holiday with my family in Spain. It is a song about 24-hour broadcast media and global events.
I recorded, mixed and mastered the song at home, which features licensed samples and loops;
- ‘Chill Drum’ 65 BPM by firstname.lastname@example.org;
- ‘Time+Space Distribution’: Ambient skyline;
- Freesound.org and freemp3x.com (various newsreels).
“Downtown Bleecker” © ~ Jazz: Instrumental
I composed “Downtown Bleecker” after hearing the British Saxophonist Simon D’souza play on some of his own loops, which he kindly gave permission for me to use.
Sadly, I didn’t get to meet Simon, who passed away in May 2014, and this composition is dedicated to him.
I named this track after a journey I made to Bleecker Street subway station in New York City, March 2000.
