Rough demos of some of my songs and compositions

  • I Have Seen
    Lyrics by Neville Potter  
  • Dream (instrumental)
    I wrote the guitar and bass parts, Niccolo Casewit added the violin during our time in Munich with the New World Orchestra. Niccolo is now playing violin in the Denver Philharmonic Orchestra.
  • Where Have I Known You Before
    Lyrics by Neville Potter  
  • Lullaby for Adults
  • If You Were to Ask Me
    Lyrics by Neville Potter  
  • Being in Your Space
    Lyrics by Neville Potter  
  • The Seatbelt (This was meant to be a commercial to promote the use of safety belts.)
  • Got a Pling?
    In 1988 I attended a one weeks' workshop with the Turkish fusion jazz percussionist and composer Attila Engin. A group was put together to play some of his very tricky music with odd time signatures etc. The other guitar player had a passage where he only had to play one tone repeated slowly and rhythmically. I asked Attila if he couldn't find something different for the guy to play than "pling-pling". Attila jumped into my face and said: "If the guy really means what he's playing, then this is the most important part in the piece."
    I went home, wrote "Got a Pling?" and sent it to Attila – who liked it. ;-)
  • Running Deer (instrumental)
  • Read Your Mind
  • A Cherry Blossom

Here is a video of the instrumental called "Farol" ("First Attempt Recording On Laptop"), which in Portuguese means "lighthouse", and in Spanish "streetlight, lantern, lamp".
