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).
Earlier this spring I moved to 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.
Richard’s New CD Collaboration with Will Ackerman
Richard's newest album is Matters of Balance
"Richard’s compositions evoke a deep emotional resonance that touches the heart in ways that are both moving and uplifting. His ever-evolving spiritual journey and search for inner peace is reflected in the tranquil mood his music creates." - Michael Diamond - Music and Media Focus
“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!
