Matthew Irwin has been working on a solo piano album for some time now, and this campaign will be to record and sell a single from that album.
Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/20/2013 -- Since the young age of five years, Matthew Irwin has been studying classical keyboard performance. He began writing later in life, actually beginning with electronic music compositions, and then turning some of them into piano arrangements. 'Closed Space' is the first song he took to the piano and created something he considered to be a successful composition. Success for arranging 'Closed Space' came after being inspired by the fourth movement, 'Generalife,' from the composer Joaquin Turina's Op. 55, 'Danzas Gitanas,' in which the hands are quickly but smoothly playing very dreamy sounding scales up and down the piano at the beginning of the piece.
Matthew wrote Closed Space in response to his anxiety and depression he had been struggling with after having to move back home with his parents due to financial reasons. In terms of music theory, he used variations of different seventh chords in the key of E flat major to create the ambience of a dream in the first part of the piece, and in the second part, variations of seventh chords in A flat major to establish a deeper and more emotional connection to the listener. The song ends in the original key of E flat major, and the final chord is an E flat major chord, which isn't heard at all until the very end of the piece, giving a much desired feeling of resolution.
Matthew would be grateful for any help he can get throughout his campaign fundraising, either through monetary donation or the sharing of the campaign itself. It's been a rather long journey to get this far for him, and it's time he is able to find a place for himself in the music world, and any and all generosity is much appreciated to get this song recorded and distributed.
