I wrote, produced and mixed/mastered this soundtrack around May 2014, and combined it with some awesome vids of steam-powered engines on the railroad tracks. REK
This is “Boots and Jeans” my original soundtrack in the style of Indie Folk Americana, featuring piano, fiddle, drums, cathedral organ, harpsichord and tin whistle.
My soundtrack produced with some amazingly intense film of dub step dancers, including James Brown’s early film, and the Irish YT sensation Sophie Merry, plus a few others.
The most recent collaboration on film and soundtrack with Lesley Earle (Newfoundland’s most amazing film artist and student of the outdoor wildlife and birds in her homeland) and yours truly, Dick Kait, inspired always by Lesley’s magical video film. Hope you all agree this is a very good film. :)
This is a new one, recorded in April 2014 in my Purple Moose Music Studio.
New one from me, called The Smile. Using electronic music production for the various voices, including piano, cathedral organ, Irish fiddles, harpsichord. (c) 2014. Copyrights held by Dick Kait and Purple Moose Music. All rights reserved.
New soundtrack from me. The music is hoping to conjure up a mystical Eastern place, in dance.
Hoping you will enjoy this original composition and soundtrack (“Overture to the Morning Sun”) that I performed with Yamaha Motif 8 (Classic) workstation, coupled to the Logic Pro 9 production software. It is scored for the fabulous Yamaha C6 grand piano (concert length), various chorale ensembles (male, female and even boys’ choir). I tossed in a tin whistle, cello and violin ensembles, individual brass instruments (trumpet, trombone, French horn), and the overtowering Toccata organ. My idea developed into something possibly for cathedral or opera. It was composed and recorded in February 2014 in my personal studio in Cincinnati, during a long time period of nasty, bitterly cold Winter weather. For me, and for many of my music friends I suppose, music itself (especially the effort of composing) can be a naturally effective escape from lots of situations including foul weather.

My new composition, “Falling Into Violet” was composed and recorded in a single morning (8 February 2014 with my ear aiming at a cowboy lament or saloon love-song, thinking of something old timey C&W with a folk sound using a finger-pickin’ style on the guitar, even though I am actually just playing my Motif keyboard—not a real guitar. This is performed with the magic of electronic music composition, using the Yamaha Motif workstation with Logic Pro 9, with samples of a nice long Steinway concert grand, acoustic guitars (two types), an Irish fiddle, and tin whistle. I claim no ownership whatsoever in the video content of horse films.
