Air on the G String is August Wilhelmj's arrangement of the second movement in Johann Sebastian Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068.
The original orchestral suite was written by Bach for his patron Prince Leopold of Anhalt some time between the years 1717 and 1723. The title comes from violinist August Wilhelmj's late 19th century arrangement of the piece for violin and piano. By transposing the key of the piece from its original D major to C major and transposing the melody down an octave, Wilhelm was able to play the piece on only one string of his violin, the G string.

Adagio for Strings is a work by Samuel Barber, arguably his most well known, arranged for string orchestra from the second movement of his String Quartet, Op. 11.
Barber finished the arrangement in 1936, the same year that he wrote the quartet. It was performed for the first time in 1938, in a radio broadcast from a New York studio attended by an invited audience, conducted by Arturo Toscanini, who also took the piece on tour to Europe and South America. Its reception was generally positive, with Alexander J. Morin writing that Adagio for Strings is "full of pathos and cathartic passion" and that it "rarely leaves a dry eye." The music is the setting for Barber's 1967 choral arrangement of Agnus Dei. Adagio for Strings can be heard in many TV shows and movies.

Nature has a wonderful ability to relax the mind, and so I found the simple images of grass blowing in the wind to set this music to. The gentle swirl of the grasses, swaying back and forward seems to turn into a dance as music begins to take over.


The Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor "Quasi una fantasia", Op. 27, No. 2, popularly known as the Moonlight Sonata, by Ludwig van Beethoven. Completed in 1801 and dedicated in 1802 to his pupil, Countess Giulietta Guicciardi, it is one of Beethoven's most popular compositions for the piano.

Set to scenic moonlight videos.

Moonlight Blues

A collection of beautiful, sad, reflective music. One hour of relaxing music for the lonely, hurting, sad and depressed, or for those who simply want to chill out listening to beautiful instrumental music.

The images are a reflection on loss and hurt and the journey of falling into depression. They have symbolic meaning to me, but rather than explain them I will leave you to form your own interpretations.

Gloomy Sunday, performed by Bjork, is a section of the Moonlight Blues video. However, after receiving a number of requests to publish it as an individual video in its own right, I uploaded the following video.

Taxi For Robbie was created on behalf of the Football Blog Directory for an article they wanted to publish on their site.

BBC 606 pundit, Robbie Savage, bets a Geordie taxi driver that Newcastle United would not finish in the top four of the Premier League. He was so confident that they wouldn't that he promised to buy the taxi driver a brand new taxi if they did. Back in the autumn it seemed like a safe bet...

Valentine is a video that was made as a favour for a friend for Valentine's Day. It is an instrumental version of a classic love song, with new, original lyrics included to sing along to.
