JEFFREY FISHER FAIRY TALES

RENAISSANCE MAN JEFFREY FISHER RELEASES NEO-CLASSICAL CD FAIRY TALES
author: Ryan Young

Jeffrey Fisher’s press materials calls him a “Renaissance Man,” and it is true that he is a painter with museum exhibits, a poet with five books, and a t’ai chi instructor (with a philosophy and instructional book published). As a musician he has six previous new age meditational-and-healing-oriented CDs. But now comes a completely different recording. Fairy Tales is a contemporary classical project, all composed by Fisher. The sounds are that of a symphony orchestra (and parts thereof), but he created it al on synthesizer (which is the cost-effective way to do this type of classical music these days).

The music was originally commissioned to score an adult and children ballet called “Hans Christian Andersen” that showcased three of this writer’s most-famous children’s stories: “Thumbellina,” “Red Shoes” and “The Mermaid,” all of which have had movies made of them over the years.

The music works as neo-classical. Fisher makes it sound so easy, you wonder why more current-day composers don’t try their hand at orchestral music. If you are tired of classical music’s big three B’s (Beethoven, Bach and Brahms), you might want to try this out as a contemporary counterpart. Or if you like the idea of new classical music for children (or families to enjoy together), then check this out.

NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT
by P.J. Birosik (reprinted from New Age Retailer):

sleeping with his passion

Living in a trailer with no electricity or running water in the spectacularly scenic Sangre de Cristo mountains, Jeffrey Allan Fisher practices reiki and composes healing music. His healing music has been endorsed by the many massage therapists, reiki masters, dancers, educators and healers he's met throughout his travels as a lecturer, workshop leader and t'ai chi instructor.
Triumph of the Spirit….is a five-part orchestral suite that celebrates humanity's love and connection with the earth. "The map of our light bodies has existed for over 17,00 years, pre-dating historical civilization, and a new massage concept is patented every 15 hours," Fisher told me. "My music serves to enhance any path the listener chooses to follow."
