Richard Carr’s music is textural, like nubby fabric or thick brocade. It has smooth and sensuous tones. It rewards time spent alone listening, with further discoveries of hidden details crafted only to be discovered with familiarity.
Original New Age Piano and Synth Music
Browse through the Shop to hear samples and purchase music from all of my albums. You'll also find information on the concert event schedule and my work with music in the holistic healing field (the I AM Creative Sessions).
I am based in the Monterey Bay area of the Central California coast! There is a new concert series, Enlightened Piano Concerts of Monterey Bay on the second weekend of every month featuring some of the best composer/performers of contemporary solo piano music from the Enlightened Piano Radio network.
Year of Music Digital Albums
Although the entire Year of Music project can be found at SoundCloud.com in monthly playlists, Richard has decided to repackage the Year of Music project into digital albums.
All albums coming from the Year of Music project will be available in the digital format only and found at CDBaby.com. To see the full collection of Richard’s digital albums from the Year-of-Music, please visit his shop on CDBaby. Below are the three most recent releases.
“I AM” Creative Sessions
An I AM Creative Session consists of a short consultation about the client’s purpose(s) or intention(s) and the creation of the music. The length of the music creation is approximately 20-50 minutes of music created specifically for the client’s purpose or intention.
There are no upcoming events at this time.
I recently read a wonderful description of musical virtuosity that fits Richard’s music: (It) “…is an art of surprise and charm and learning and tradition and invention and survival…”
I would say that listening to Richard’s live music streaming is an exercise in bravery, requiring focused listening and the readiness to break into laughter like a child, such that joining his live stream music performances does make the world a better place!
Join Richard with a Daily Dose of Free Music
Beginning May 1, 2011, I embarked on a challenging experience: posting a new piece of music every day for the entire year. Links are posted to my Facebook page and Soundcloud daily.
