 The debut singles
Music always played a role in my life, with absolute pitch and humming tunes in my mind, but without practicing an instrument during my youth. As I turned to Jesus and discovered the power of praise in 1992 I purchased a simple polyphonic keyboard and began practicing. In the later 1990s a friend of mine lent me his Hohner Adam Arranger for some weeks when I arranged some worship songs and recorded them as MIDI files. While always facing the limitations of keyboard memory I saved them to floppy disk and copied them to computer for backup and future work. Finally I replaced my beginner's keyboard with a GEM WK4 workstation which opened great opportunities in practicing and sequencing but disk handling and sequencing turned out to be somehow less convenient compared with Hohner Adam. As I already knew Rosegarden I always thought about performing the editing and finishing of MIDI recordings from the keyboard synthesizer on a Linux system but systems powerful enough for quality sound and real-time performance were out of reach at that time. So I had to postpone many ideas of recording, arranging, and composing until suitable PC-based technological prerequisites would become available at an affordable price. With a computer system capable of running Rosegarden in real-time mode the time arrived to give flesh to these pending ideas and to turn them into real tracks and compositions.

The first track was born out of a keyboard ad-lib sequence that came to my mind in the early 2000s. Soon I created a counter-theme by simply reversing the order of Eb minor and Cb chords but the final touch and sonic polish of the composition had to wait until October 2017.
The second one was inspired by the pseudo-cadence of a lounge-style piece of music I listened to while dining in a modern stylish Italian in the early 2010s; it just turned out to be somehow more "dancy" than originally intended.

A useful side issue with creation of these tracks is to have some background tracks with full rights ownership for use in YouTube videos, e.g. in Stellarium simulations.

 ...brought to you via Digital Music Distribution
After having listened to both tracks several times I decided to publish them as I guessed there would be some audience that would like them. So I studied the possibilities and offers of several digital music distributors like LANDR and TuneCore. Finally I decided to choose LANDR because it integrates automastering, validating, distribution and collecting royalties into one single process chain with status control on each stage, combined with a low threshold pricing scheme which encouraged me to give it a try. So I uploaded both tracks to LANDR for automastering and submitted them for distribution, and indeed my tracks became validated and were distributed to the streaming services within the first week after submission - and here they are!
